Figured I'd start up a thread here mainly to hold myself accountable.
Been playing for about 1 year now and after sampling ~70 discs I think I've narrowed it down to a dozen or so. Every time I think I'm happy with my bag I inevitably change something so hoping that y'all can keep me honest and scold me when I make unnecessary changes.

Primarily throw LHBH. Thumbers and flicks are very much works in progress but serviceable enough for the moment. I think my biggest goal right now is to develop some consistency and accuracy with my backhand.

Bag:

Distance Driver
175 Lucid Trespass - 290avg/330max - Honestly too much disc for me but I like it

Fairway Drivers
173 Z Raptor - 250avg/280max - hyzers and windy conditions
170 Champ Eagle - 250avg/290max - primary stable driver
170 INNfuse Star Eagle - 230avg/270max - beefy boy! 1st choice for thumbers
168 DX Eagle - 260avg/310 max - slightly US
165 DX Eagle - 260avg/310 max - very US

Mids
180 Champ King Cobra - 230avg/260max - straight to slightly US
176 DX Cobra - 190avg/250max - pretty beat and US great for anny/utility/flips

Putters
173 Z Zone - 180avg/230max - hyzer approaches and windy conditions
175 Eclipse Envy - 220avg/270max - use this as a midrange tbh - straight with slight finish
175 Diamond X-out Wizard - 190avg/240max - slightly US now mostly used as a backup
175 Firm Wizard - 180avg/220max - primary putter and short approaches

I mainly play just 2 courses and I think this bag covers all the shots I need for those 2. I'd like to get a Trespass around 167 grams so might look at adding that in the near future.

Checked out Deming Park for the first time - shot +4 and not too unhappy for first time there. Hit up Big Walnut after and shot +2 which I am unhappy about but what are you gonna do. Tried out a d line Squall to fill the gap between my cobras and eagles and had some pretty good success with it. Gonna bag it and a tour series pro-line I found unmarked a while back and see how things go.

Trespass (Lucid)
Raptor (Z line)
4 Eagles (INNfuse Star, Champ, 2 DXs
2 Squalls (D-line and Proline)
2 Cobras (DX and Champ King)
Zone (Z line)
2 Envies (Electron Firm and Eclipse
3 Wizards (Diamond, Firm, SSS)

Shot +16 at The Hill @ Northview Blues (embarssing), +1 at Dr. James A. Dillon Park shorts (not bad for me) and +10 at Hazel Landing Blues (could have been better) today. Threw the Squalls pretty well so I'm glad I added them in. Driving accuracy left a lot to be desired but I did have a couple shots worth writing home about. Gonna shelve the SSS wizard until cold weather comes. Zone worked great for upshots. IDK if I need to break it in more but my current Zone doesn't seem to fly as far off the tee as the 2 I lost. I'm gonna bag the Streamline Runway in the meantime to see if I can eek out another 20-30 feet.

Checked out a couple new courses today. The runway flies further enough than the zone for me to bag both I think. I just wasn’t feeling the squalls today gonna dust off the Rift and use it in their place.

I had some long drives (for me) with the trespass I’m gonna order a lucid air one and see if lighter weight gets me some extra distance. I’ll keep the max weight for windy conditions. Might also get a Felon to try out vs the Raptor and INNfuse Eagle

Did some fieldwork trying out different mids and settled on giving the Buzzz another go. Then lost it on my first warm up throw at Milligan Park but what are ya gonna do. Still shot a -2 which is 5 better than my personal best and 13 strokes better than my last league round there. Unfortunately lost my straightish DX eagle and Raptor. Luckily I had ordered a Z Buzzz already and I got the Thunderbird as the F2 Friday disc from Innova. Been thinking of throwing the Pro Leopard back in the bag so might try it out to replace the DX Eagle

Also picked up a slightly used Felon off EBay and gotta say it flies as advertised. Might end up shelving the Runway again since seems like I can cover all the OS stuff with the Felon and Zone combo

Trespass x2 (Lucid 175, Lucid Air 162)
Machete (Z-line 171)
Undertow (SP 170)
Thunderbird (175 Champ F2)
Eagle x2 (170 Champ, 165 DX)
Crave (Neutron 163)
Runway (Neutron 177)
Buzzz (Z-line 177)
Cobra (DX 176)
Zone (Z-line 174)
Envy x2 (Electron Firm 173, Eclipse 173)
Wizard x2 (Diamond x-out 175, SSS 175)

Shot a -3 with this set up at Gibbs Memorial (short tees tournament rules) which is probably my best outing to date. Really leaned on the Runway for a lot of the tee shots there even though I barely throw it at Milligan or Big Walnut. I just got the Crave in last night so only threw it once but hopefully it can fill the straight fairway slot I've been looking for. Trespasses really shine on the longer holes. IDK why I can usually get the full flight with them but struggle with other distance drivers but I'm not complaining!

I honestly forgot I had put the Machete back in the bag until I sat down to type this out. Guess that's a good sign since I only hope to use it when I'm in dire straits or hurricane force winds. All in all I'm pretty pleased with this set-up and I have room for 1 more disc still if I ever want to trial a mold for poops and giggles.

Eagle x2 (170 Champ, 165 DX)
Leopard (Pro 169)
Runway (Neutron 177)
Buzzz (Z-line 177)
Cobra (DX 176)
Stingray (DX 166)
Zone (Z-line 174)
Envy x2 (Electron Firm 173, Eclipse 173)
Wizard x2 (Diamond x-out 175, SSS 175)

Shot a -1 at Milligan for League night with this setup. Preliminary 827 round which is a new PB for me at least.

I just can't figure the Crave out so I threw the Leopard back in and it did the job for me. I think it's just too damn hot out for SSS Wizard right now. I pulled a couple putts to the left and even missed one from 8 feet - surely it isn't me that's the problem!

All in all this is probably the most stable (as in not changing discs constantly) my bag has been since I've started. Seems like that has gone a long way to giving me some consistency on the course as well.

Played a tournament at Gibbs today and averaged 799 rating over 2 rounds. Got 21/34 in MA3 which I guess I can't be too upset about.

Picked up a spare Trespass for my player's disc (w00t) and bought a Stag and Tursas since I'd always wanted to try em out. I could see the Tursas maybe replacing the Cobra and/or Stingray. The Stag is interesting to me. It looks a lot like an Eagle bottom but it's crazy domey. I'm not really sure if I'll actually bag it but it seemed worth a gamble.

I think I may take a break from rated rounds for a bit and just take the Stag Tursas and SS Wizard out for a couple rounds to get a feel for em

Kinda funny to read back over just how much my bag has changed since I first started this thread. Especially since I started this thread to try and quit changing discs in and out so frequently. Anyway seems like I'm mostly just switching out utility discs and have started to establish my "main molds" so to speak. Gonna give the Tursas and Stag a chance but may switch back to the Cobra and DX Eagle eventually.

I got a beat up prime burst Emac Truth with a Trespass I ordered off Ebay. If I ever lose the Buzzz I could see myself giving the Emac a try since I have a Lucid one already. Plus plain old stock Buzzzes seem pretty hard to come by these days.

Man this game has a way of humbling you! Just when I thought I had my bag mostly figured out I go and shoot a +16 at Northwest Community and lost my Buzzz and Runway to boot. This time last year I shot a +5 and my worst round there was +11 so something's gotta give. I've decided to go back to basics and am going to try sticking to the advice in that Garu thread. So I've decided to strip the bag down to just 4 discs for now.

Felon (175 Fusion Burst)
Eagle (169 DX 7/10)
Emac Truth (180? Prime burst 6/10)
Wizard (173 Hemp SS)

I took the Eagle, Emac and Wizard to the field for a little session and was throwing much better than my last round. I'm going to try to stick with those 4 discs and play a couple rounds at my usual courses and slowly add discs back in as I think I need them.
