Default Brodysseus: Building up from the bottom.

So starting a couple of months ago, I disced down to just my Aviars and have slowly been trying out molds and adding them in (Truths were the first addition). I want to build a complete but simple bag starting with my putters and moving up to drivers. This thread will document what I add in and what I am trying out. You can recommend molds that complement my current discs or what you think my next additions should be.

Distances:
Putters- ~225'
Mids- ~250-275'
Fairways- ~275-300'

In the Bag:
Aviar: 175 DX x2
Truth: 178 Lucid x2

Trying out:
Envy: 170 Neutron
Hornet: 178 Z

Potential Later Additions
FD: 166 C-Line, 175 D-Line
Raptor: 175 Armorflex


So, fairways are a little ways off and I'm ironing out the utility putters/mids. Any suggestions for what I should be trying out in the lower speed ranges (speed 6 or less).?

I'm assuming you're working on form? If that's the case I would say start throwing the Comet.

Not particularly. Just wanted a more thought out bag. Do love me some Comet though.

Have you thrown the Relay? It's could fit into your bag as the versatile speed 6-7-ish fairway, that's understable, but also capable of hyzers. And even though it has a narrow rim, I bet you could throw it 300' or more.

(Not sure if this would overlap with the FD though)

Random follow up: Saw that you've been digging the Underworld. Mind giving me your thoughts on it. Think it could be a good US fairway addition?

I'm not to worried about overlapping the FDs... I would be concerned that they might overlap with the Truth some. Because the truth is definitely a Neutral to Stable mid/fairway hybrid for me. How understable are they? Anything I add in the speed 6 range would need to be pretty far to one side of the stability spectrum.

The Relay is, by any measure, an understable disc. It will definitely be on that end of the spectrum for you. It gives a nice S pattern flight, sort of a Leopard that zooms.

Underworld will overlap with the FD, particularly a D-line. I used to throw Underworlds, now I roll with a 172 S-line FD.

I'd try out the US Dyanmic Mid, I can't remember the name (evidence maybe? Can't recall), or Discraft's Meteor. If that's one of the newer Truths then it should be pretty straight, so an understable complement would be worth it. Or you can just learn angles too

I'd honestly go ahead and buy a FD if I was you, maybe a 166-170 S line. It should be sufficiently longer than your mids to where you can use it as a distance disc and grow into it.

Thanks for the input. I already own the 2 C-Line and 2 D-Line FDs. FDs are the early front runner for workhorse fairway but I'm trying to nail down my PnAs and mids before working drivers back in. I've been toying with adding an understable mid but I'd want it on the slower end up of the spectrum.

Oh and for the distances: Those are my backhand distances, take off about 15-25 ft for forehand.

Comet? Someone already said this, probably the frontrunner for slower US mid. Maybe, a Fuse or Core, might be faster than you want. What about Stingray (kinda fast) or Cobra. Do you prefer beads?
