Holiday road trip bag; we were short on space and I didn't want to take anything I'd be mad if I lost so I have:

Distance Driver
(1) DX Valkyrie 168g
Overstable Driver
(1) DX Firebird 166g
Midrange
(1) DX Roc 180g
Putter
(1) Classic Aviar 172g

I threw this morning with no noticeable negative effect on my game.

If I had a brain in my head I'd start carrying these four all the time and just fill the rest of the cart with beer.

Ahhh the classics

Yes I usually play better when I carry fewer discs. The more I throw a particular disc, the better I can control its flight.

It's a #4 Roc. I don't want to lose a #3 Roc on the road with no chance of getting it back.

*lost a lovely beat Firebird on the road on a temp course in a place it will never be found this summer*

So the stripped-down bag has been in use for a few weeks now.

Distance Driver
(1) DX Valkyrie 168g
(1) Pro Valkyrie 175g
Overstable Driver
(1) DX Firebird 166g
(1) DX Firebird 175g
Midrange
(1) DX #2 Roc 180g
(1) DX #4 Roc 180g
Putter
(1) Classic Aviar 172g

Two things I could stand to add are a really fast, flippy driver for tailwind drives and a stable driver between the Rocs and Valks. I could easily slide Eagles in there as a control driver. I'm not so sure about the fast driver. Maybe a Pro Tern?

It's funny...I've been playing with something similar for the last week or so...

G* Valkyrie
Dx Roc (#2.5)
Dx Aviar

My question is...would a fast understable driver really give you enough added distance over the Valk to warrant carrying it? Same question regarding the Eagles. I find the Valk pretty versatile when powering down/up.
