Keeping it retro! (Idk what the kids are saying these days...)

The Buzzz has an OS brother, now. I know OP said they didn’t click with OS stuff, but could be worth looking into.

I agree the “control” driver category has boomed, and the Thunderbird and PD probably hold down the coop. Shryke is the more turn, less fade destroyer out of the box. Zones are hip for approaches and stuff.

Looks like you've got a nice bag! Check out the Bag Suggestions & Feedback forum for more ideas.

If you are trying to smooth out your throw... a Comet would be excellent alongside that Buzzz, or a Tursas for a bigger gap in stability.

Ten years ago if you went on a dg site for recommendations you would hear "Gateway putters, Discraft mids, Innova drivers."

Ten years later there are a bunch of new companies making golf discs. Many of them are copies of discs that already were and none of them are a disc you HAVE to have. Wizard, Buzzz, Leopard/TeeBird, Destroyer is as solid a bag now as it was then.

I don't, and to be honest I still see far more Wizards than Ions on the course. Proving that it's all individual anyway

Seriously, the OPs got a solid bag.. not that much has changed.

That's only b/c MVP is still trying to figure out how to make a decent base line plastic. Ion pwns Wizards on throws all day though.

If I'm going to throw an MVP putter, it'll be an Envy.

Meh, might as well be a short mid. Ion is better for putting.

In summation:

Wizard: Best putter thanks to Gateway plastic

Envy: Best thrower.

Ion: Great putter and thrower.
