Question do you still use a Viper or Valkyrie in the actual bag? I can see the merit of using both still even when more advanced now. I still use a Valkyrie mold not same disc obviously but have used the mold since my second year and first full year in 2004.

No, I don't bag any of those molds anymore.

Cycling Vipers was fun and I do miss that aspect, but the proton Clash is absolutely bombproof, more flick friendly to my hand, and sits right where I liked the Viper to be stability-wise. I decided to jump from speed 7 to speed 11 for my drivers and do not miss the Valk. Great mold, just doesn't fit with my relatively minimalist setup.

A little late to this party, but here's my choice:

Putter - P2
Mid - MD3
Driver - FD2

can always revisit... my fh is better and I remain leaning hard into putter and roc use to 300’ range with a variety of lines. long fade is kinda of a tweener i don’t bag as i go from a teebird pair to a mamba and a variety of cannons for typical course carry of 10 discs.

kcp aviar
dx roc
solf (tb or cannon as alternates)

Im about 8 months or so into DG, max distance just under 400. That being said i would carry:
Plasma Volt
Md3
P1 (maniac)

Still at a point where i dont throw distance drivers acurately so thats why i would currently choose the Volt as my driver. Use moslty DM discs but i do like the overmold of some MVP discs.

Plasma Envy
ESP Comet (since Tangent is OOP)
Plasma Wave

It leaves me a little wanting on the anhyzer shot, could probably swap the ESP Comet for a first run ESP LE but that would limit me on long and straight. Alternatively I could keep that Comet as is and swap the Envy for a electron soft Envy and do just fine...

Can't remember what I said the last three times haha but the Envy is still top o the list.
