Default Advice needed- for discs

I'm a noob thats a right-handed Back hand thrower. Below is a least of all my discs and the distances I can normally throw them. Please help if theres a new disc I should try or add to my bag! Thanks in advance.
I can't throw a Katana, groove, or boss they fade way too far left for me.

Valkyrie- 295
Beast- 275-280
Leopard-255
I use a cheetah for midrange(I know its a Fairway driver) Thinking about getting a skeeter, Kite or Cobra, or Buzz

I Putt and approach with a XD (Hated the Rhyno)


For Driving I was thinking about trying an Avenger SS or a Surge, or Maybe a Sidewinder or Wraith. I've only been playing for a couple of months so any suggestions would be helpful thanks!

At those distances the Surge/Wraith will do nothing good for you. You have a rather undertstable heavy bag so I'd recommend something more neutral (DX Teebird) and maybe something overstable for when the situation calls for it.
On the mids, I'd say to go for the Buzzz.

I forgot to add that I throw in the 150 range with the Drivers, and my putter is a 171 if that makes a difference

Shelve the beast for a while and concentrate on the other molds. The buzz would be a great midrange addition. For the stable/overstable driver I would get a star or champ teebird and you'll be set for a while.

Bad advice is bad.

My suggestions:

Mids:
1. Coyote - great straight w/glide for now, useful down the road as a turnover
2. Buzzz - searching will tell you anything you need to know about why this disc is phenomenal
3. Cobra - Good disc, gets super flippy, squirrely if you overpower it though

Drivers:
Stick with Leopard and Valk but work your way up the weights. If you like the feel better, a Sidewinder could replace the Valk. A Wraith won't do a thing for you right now except fade hard. Valkyrie is the win.

if you want the flight path of a Wraith, but slower, get an Eagle-X
