Default What's your all PD set-up?

Ok, so I'm a relatively new PD convert. I got an S back in June and a P shortly after. For most of the summer I haven't used any other distance drivers, these things basically covered it all. But then some D-bag in a black explorer ran over my P-PD and put a nice crease down the middle. It's still usable, but it's not the same...now it acts more like Roadrunner...but that's another story.

Point is, when my P-PD was damaged, it got me wondering what other slots/shots I could fill with PDs in different plastic. I KNOW that you could basically use a PD for every driver shot. My question to all you PD "freaks" is this: if you had to build a balanced but minimal bag which only used PDs for everything above a fairway driver (and some of you prob. already do), what plastics and weights would you use, and what shots would you use them for? Try and keep it to five discs total (if you can).

i used to use 4 pds in my bag i had a c line 171 for all overstable shots a 168 s line for straight shots a 166 thrashed p for rollers and hyzer flip right shots (a roadrunner of sorts) and a 168 p that is newish for turn-overs/ hyzer flip flat. Now i use destroyers and firebirds instead of pds

I appreciate the link. I love that thread and have read through it a few times. I am really looking to keep this convo specific to my question, which wasn't fully explored in the other thread. Thanks for your help though.

I could do what you're saying with my current setup (though I do have several high speed drivers for a little more flexibility). I could carry 4 or 5 and cover virtually any shot I want.

My 170 beatup P-PD is great for turnovers, tunnels tailwinds and when I want maximum distance but accuracy isn't as necessary.

My 170 white Asia Open Stamped PD (thanks DGV for hooking me up with this one-of-a kind disc) is great for shots that I want to flip up and carry, but still fade left.

My 170 yellow C-PD is my oldest, and gets used for sidearms and shots that I want to throw flat but still hyzer out. It carries a long way because of how beat in it is but is still very stable

My 169 blue S-PD covers my fresh PD shots including anything with mild wind.

My 175 Orange, Domey C-PD is a beast and great for mega headwinds but won't carry as far as my others.

personally i use a fresh S-PD for a stable driver i can flex out and FH, along with a seasoned S-PD that's my main driver. i tried the C-PD but i'm not really a fan, they lack glide and i hate the + rim. i'd rather have something more stable like my FB then try to fill a small gap there.

I'm currently using PD's as the fastest discs in my bag.
I have:

1 C-PD used for overstable ish duties
1 S-PD (test config I think) little bit of turn but not much more of a work horse
1 P-PD (used) hyzer flips that still fade, and big S shots
