You could add a couple more once you see what kind of shots would compliment your current choices well. Sticking with the same discs over time rather than constantly switching will also help. Playing with others especially better players will help you learn some form and different kind of shots initially. I'd throw both BH and FH if you can. Keep it up!
Yes. All discs are new - well, new-ish. Many of them are in the 165-172g weight range.

I think lighter discs would probably suit you better.

Lighter discs are easier to get up to speed for a given mold.

UPDATE:

I went out for a few dozen throws this afternoon using most of my core bag and I'm now at the point where, after a lot of tough work, I feel like I can finally control, if not outright eliminate wrist roll. I'm now flicking my discs about as far as I do backhand which do indeed put me squarely in that short 50'-75' range.

I would have recorded myself except my phone doesn't take video.....

I tend to do the same 166 is the lightest with a uphill downhill putter then my lighter 167 gram Champion Destroyer to max being 171 my Valkyrie's one is Star 2008 Ice bowl and the other a new glow Champion one. The exceptions are my main putters max 175 grams and my Shark mid ranges are also at 175 grams. Oh and a Dragon at 150 grams but probably more like 148 grams now, need a new Dragon, thinking if not that then a Wahoo.
