Now I have Moderately OS, Straight Stable, Moderately US, Trickshot Flippy at each speed range.

Hyzerflips and turnovers are the prettiest shots in disc golf. Learn to control your release angles and clean up your OAT.

That moment where a beat-to-understable disc turns just past flat and locks into a long straight glide is what I am daydreaming about on every drive to a DG course.
Bravo!

Do you learn to throw your Nuke's 250' or do you throw a midrange?

Do you learn to throw your stable drivers anny or do you throw an understable one?

For each range gap I throw an OS, S, and US disc. I like to release all of my shots as flat as possible.

So true. Then add a tailwind, and a drive that would normally turn real hard, but instead is gliding faster and longer toward the pin, and your in double Disc Golf ecstasy.

Are these your questions, or rhetorical/research questions for the OP?

I wouldn't throw a Nuke until I was able to throw a midrange at least 250'. However, any disc can be good for any distance or type of throw depending on the circumstances. Learn to throw midranges and putters effectively, and drivers can work their way in.

Again this depends on what your goal is. A stable disc, thrown anny, will eventually fade (if given enough height/time), creating an S-shaped shot. An understable disc, thrown straight, will turn right and not fade as much; the ultimate shape of the path is different. An understable disc, thrown anny (with plenty of height), would tend to hold that line for a long way. An understable disc thrown with too much anny or too low would likely turn into a roller, for better or worse. It all depends on the shot you need.

Smart plan. I have a US to OS line up for each distance range as well. In fact, if you take out putt and approach discs, I only have one repeat mold in the bag (2 Buzzz's). Knowing how to throw many different shots with many different discs turns you into a creative and formidable golfer.

Here you go. I am saying just like you don't use a nuke to throw 250' you don't use an OS/S disc to throw left to right.

I carry a Meteor, Glide, flippy XL, Heat, flippy Z Nuke and ESP Flash. Those handle most hyzer-flip or turnover shots I need.

I've also practiced my RHFH. Depends on how the shot needs to finish!

But sometimes the situation warrants it. I'll throw a Nuke for a 250' shot if I have to mash a big hyzer over some trees, or I need a RHFH shot with a big flair at the end, which midranges won't necessarily be able to accomplish.

I agree with the OS/S part, mostly; if we're talking RHBH, that make sense if the entire flight is L to R, but if it starts L to R and there's a hard left finish, I'll work an anny flex shot (or try to) with an OS/S disc. Might end up being a thing of beauty!
