You would for sure have to go All Discraft. It is the best company after all.

Putters

Discraft APX - Straight to Understable Shots,approaches
Discraft Challenger - Main Putter,Stable Drives and approaches
Discraft Zone - Utility Putter and Overstable drives

Midranges

Discraft Comet - Straight to Understable Drives,needs high lines to work good
Discraft Buzz - Stable Drives, does best on low tight lines
Discraft Hornet - Utility Midrange and Overstable Drives

Fairway Drivers
Discraft Avenger SS - Straight to Understable
Discraft XL - Straight to Understable,very good wooded driver,covers many shots in 3 plastics(Z,X and ESP).
Discraft Mantis - I'm waiting on this one myself,but this one seems like it's going to fill my need for a Discraft Teebirdish disc.
Discraft Stalker - Flies like a TL or worn in Teebird.
Discraft Predator - Only Utility Overstable Fairway you need.

Distance Drivers
Discraft Nuke - replaces Sword
Discraft Crank - Replaces Echo Destroyer,since they are known to be more straight.

There is no need for the Nebula. Your Hornet is much better at doing Overstable shots and the Buzz can do what the Nebula does with the Buzz thrown on more of a hyzer. So put that Nebula on a wall or something.

All you would be doing is limiting yourself.

The pro's only convert to 1 company because it's part of the politics... I think it's kind of lame that companies that sponsor a player make them throw their discs exclusively.

I throw Innova, Discraft, Legacy, DD, Latitude, Prodigy, westside, Quest, Discmania, MVP, & Vibram... They all have discs that outshine similar discs from other companies, and may fit "your" stlye more.

Don't sell your soul.. LOL
Don't

Trust me, the mixed bag is working for me and I would never unless I was fully sponsored throw exclusively one brand.

However, the original point again is a what-if scenario. What discs would you substitute in considering the discs I have and their specific roles within my bag? Again, this is all for the sake of discussion. Vibram and MVP answers are going to be easy (easier) because of their limited line-up. Yet if you allow crossovers like Latitude/ Westside/ Dynamic, then these answers might be intriguing.

It doesn't matter in the end, each company (with a full lineup) has discs that fit each slot you would ever need. They may be a little different than the other company but you would be able to learn the equivalent just as well as what you currently throw.

Honestly i think sticking with 1 company is a great idea, if your only throwing one kind of plastic, and they all feel the same in the hand its just another way to develop more consistency and familiarity.

For example Prodigy makes an AMAZING feeling plastic, if i threw prodigy i would likely ONLY throw prodigy and get used to their molds that fill all the slots i need because that same feel would always be there no matter what disc i grabbed.

Another example is MVP, great feeling plastic and most of the cores for their midrange, putter, and fairway discs are the same shape/size so you can have a consistent feel from disc to disc to get comfortable with. This is the main reason i decided to start throwing MVP almost exclusively, i just like the feel and wanted to settle on something to build consistency. As soon as i settled on one company, one mold for each slot my game saw improvement. Could easily have been any company.

Saying a disc from one company is better than another is the most opinionated bull**** anyone says on these forums, including myself which i am guilty of from time to time.

Nothing wrong with throwing a mixed bag either, for some people its a mind game and they have to "believe" that they are throwing a disc that's superior to other discs that in reality do almost the exact same thing. How you throw your discs and how well you understand your discs flight is whats most important, pick something and become the best you can be at it and don't look back.

Let's try all Prodigy::::::

420 maximum distance
370-390 controlled/ accurate maximum distance
350 distance I convert from fairway driver to maximum distance driver
280-300 average where I convert from midrange to fairway driver
200 where I consider starting to throw mids

PUTTERS:
PA4 for putting and short approaches / understable upshots
PA1 for driving and long approaches


MIDRANGES:
M4 for long, gliding straight to slight turnover drives
M3 line shaping drives in the woods
M2 for (semi) open field stable midrange drives.


FAIRWAY DRIVERS:
F7 for soft fairway throws in the woods. Also good for last second turns
F5 for line shaping in the woods / for workhorse wooded drives and line drives
F3 for open field precision and max distance when I am not feeling the wide rimmed drivers
F1 for ultimate wind fighting precision

MAXIMUM DISTANCE DRIVERS:
D4 for when I need a little more lateral movement
D3 simply an awesome maximum distance disc with equally awesome control for such a disc

------------------------

Surprised this wasn't done. I'll be honest, I was a Discraft Mid/ Innova Driver guy for a long time. Prodigy won me over with the Mids and Putters...the Fairways are great. Not a huge fan of the D's but because of consistency in molds being all over...I'm sure new runs will be better.

Millennium:

Omega-AP or SS's depending on how firm/soft you like putters
QMega-driving putter

Aurora MS- 1 beat for understable, fresh for straight
Sentinel MF- 1 seasoned for straight-fade, 1 fresh for overstable
QMF- utility type beef

MJLS- cycle these for all fairway shots
EXP1-utility, unfortunately these are OOP
SOLFs- more stable shots, little faster than the JLS and more overstable

Q Quasars-cycle these as distance drivers

I thought it was funny how similar our bags are. Judge, almost all DC mids, almost all Innova drivers.

You could definitely swap out the Predator and XXX for a Firebird or two, swap the Tangent for a Comet, and swap the Sword for a Tern. That would bring you to all DC mids, all Innova drivers, Dynamic putters. That's basically what I do now except I will carry a Roc3, Atlas, and sometimes swap the FB for a very stiff and OS Avenger.
