Default knivvves' ITB

Years playing/experience: 1 year, about 80 rounds, a majority of them being 9 hole rounds though
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: predominantly RHBH, can RHFH when needed and starting to use it more often
Golf Distance (avg/max*): 280', 300'+. Gaining some distance lately so unsure exactly

Age: 35
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: bad knees and I'm uncoordinated
Other sport proficiencies?: no but i'm not out of shape
Additional Information: The 2 charts I'm linking are my current bag and all the discs I own. I used Marshall Street's guide as a base and adjusted some based off of how they fly for me.
What do you like/dislike about your current bag?: I feel like I have about all of my shots covered, I'm pretty happy with my bag. I dislike that I don't have a good excuse to buy more discs. Having the FD, River, and Leopard all in my bag is probably overkill - 1 of those should probably go (not the FD).
Specific areas of desired feedback: I'm gaining distance lately so possibly looking for something faster than a speed 9. Also just looking for any constructive criticism. Am I on the right track? Do I have way too many molds? Do you have a favorite disc that I should try instead of something I have?
Immediate and long-term goals: Keep gaining distance and consistency, cut down on the wild throws, learn and incorporate more shot types. Would like to enter tournaments next year.

Bag: Grip BX2

Distance Drivers:
168g Westside VIP Ahti - extremely overstable shots, spike hyzers, basically never used but some day I might need it
165g Innova GStar Thunderbird - very overstable shots and heavy winds
165g Innova Star Valkyrie - straight shots, main distance driver
175g Innova Champion Sidewinder - understable distance

167g Innova Star Teebird - slightly overstable shots
169g Innova DX Teebird - straight shots when I want to finish left
167g Discmania C-Line FD - dead straight shots, becoming my main fairway
172g Lat 64 Gold Line River - understable fairway with more glide, a little flippier
175g Innova Champion Leopard - understable fairway

171g Discraft ESP Buzzz - main mid, use this for most of my approaches instead of a throwing putter
171g Discraft Z Comet - annys, woods, hyzer flips
174g Discraft ESP Archer - similar shots to the Comet but when I need something a little longer or more understable, + rollers

174g Gateway SS Wizard - putting putter, got a stack of these for putting practice
170g Discraft Jawbreaker Zone - approaches, forehands, overstable putter/mid shots

Your bag is pretty sound. Leopard/fd/teebird is a great lineup. You’re set on distance drivers too. All of those are great for the 350-400 distance and you shouldn’t have to add to that. If you are feeling super frisky a mid 160s pro wraith could be fun.

All in all keep working with that. Start driving your wizards or find a driving putter you like. Envy is a great mold. You’ll progress with form throwing more putters and mids except your nose angles.
