If your needing ideas for new shot types it might be a good idea to watch some tourney coverage on YouTube as well. A lot of the bigger names play their own style, and in commentary sometimes they even explain what it is they are doing and what disc they have. If you throw Comets watch Michael Johansen for sure. He is the comet king after all

But MJ does all his approach shots with Bangers. I think he once said pretty much everything under 300ft is a Banger GT

He does, but I'm more commenting on him saying he hasn't had much exposure to different types of shots. If you watch what MJ does at 350' it's gonna be pretty close to what one would try at 250' with less power/experience

I do the same, using Max wight old Pro and a Star Shark 175 grams as a Driving putter as well as long Approach short midrange and if on the rare chance it is very very windy I would use them as a putter as well. I have used the two Sharks for a standard midrange shot as well and they work great for that.

Because of some of the disc choice philosophies I've picked up on this board, I'm always looking to throw the slowest disc I can to reach the basket. As you know that depends on a lot of things but it still comes down to what is the slowest I can throw and still get there. I'm hoping that if I miss my line, any bounce away will be minimized because I'm throwing slow. I also throw a comet and like someone else said, it acts like a long putter in a lot of ways. So, if I can make it there comfortable with my putter, I'm doing that. If it's just a bit further then it's the comet or other mid depending on the shape of the shot I need.
