Golf D with distance drivers is a bit over 400', max D is a bit farther. Got a bag upgrade recently. Here's what I put in it:

Max D Fun Toys
167 X Nuke: big ol' flattened dome, great glide and speed, longest disc when conditions are right
150 Blizzard Destroyer: some turn, some fade, bombs, effortless forehand distance

Distance Drivers
175 Star Destroyer: headwind/power driver
171 Star Wraith: seasoned, straightest do-anything type driver
175 Pro Wraith: seasoned, long turn with a little fade
175 Champ Beast: beat, big dome, flies like a long Roadrunner

Control Drivers
175 Z Predator: overstable
175 C PD: stable with predictable overstable finish
175 Champion Teebird: seasoned, stable, straight
170 Champion Teebird: beat, slightly understable
169 Champion Eagle-L: beat, real flippy

Mid-range Drivers
179 FLX Drone: overstable
177 Vector: stable with predictable overstable finish
175 CryZtal Buzzz: seasoned, stable, straight
177 Pro D Buzzz: sacrificial mid, slightly understable
173 ESP Meteor: flippy

Putters
175 SS Wizard: seasoned, short putter
170 DX Aviar x3: beat/seasoned/fresh

Been playing pretty competitively lately and shooting decent with this setup. Disc is fun.

The Predator is flat, more overstable, and punches through headwinds better, so it's easier to range on short spikes. The CPD has some dome, is a bit longer, and straightens out more or flips a bit in strong wind. The PD gets more throws but the Pred is there for when I don't want to go long on a ~300' spike when it's windy.

I figured it was something like that, just thought I'd ask. Do you throw more on hyzer-line or flat throws?

Picked up a couple 4x Yetis, a 171g Echo Star Roadrunner, and a 167 Echo Star Wraith and really liked all of them, soooo they went in the bag! Also, I took out the PD. Beat Preds are still the sh!t....got the Sentinels as a gift and they are pretty awesome. They're both flat max weight guys, one is dyed and seasoned up, the other fresh and beefy. Thanks Mark...

Anyway, bag looks like this for now and I really like all the discs in there:

Destroyer x2
Wraith x3
Roadrunner

Predator x2
Teebird x2
Eagle x2 (added a flippy DX Eagle-X)

San Marino Q Sent x2
Buzzz x2
Meteor

Yeti Pro x2 (I'm sorta convinced this latest run of Yetis will go down in history as being particularly awesome)
DX Aviar x2

Roadrunners are indeed awesome. I lost the one I was throwing a few weeks ago and was trying to replace it with that Beast but it just wasn't cutting it. The new Echo Star flies great and feels pretty good. I noticed most of the regular Star Roadrunners on the shelves at the shops around here are a really nice grippy translucent blend, but the only ones left are low 160's. Hoping the next shipments has some heavier ones.

I got another Yeti today and might buy one or two more just to have a stack. I really like the plastic they're coming in right now.

Sorry mods forgot to multi quote.

You should try out one of those lightweight Roadrunners.I use to throw a 172 Champion and a 171 Star Roadrunner.I was having some issues with some pain and decided to start throwing some of my lighter plastic.

I've been throwing a 161 Star Roadrunner and I'll never again throw a heavier weight.The lighter weight feels perfect.If I need to throw the big anhyzer I'll just throw it with a bit of anny and it flies.If I need that slight anhyzer I throw it with a bit of hyzer and it flips and flies right pretty as you please.It's just so much easier.With the heavier weight I could still make it do these things,but it took more effort,thus causing me a bit of pain.(yeah I know I'm getting old)

I'm glad I bought one last year and put it up.Now that I'm throwing it again it feels great.

But by no means let me deter you from getting a heavier weight.I was just sharing my experience with the two weights.

Simplified the setup a little bit

Destroyer x4 (Star x2, 150 Bliz, Pro)

Z Pred
Eagle X, L
* Teebird
E* Roadrunner

Roc x2 (176 KC, 180 DX)
Ghost (179 Gravity)
Z Comet

Yeti x2
Aviar PnA x2

I'm giving the Roc another go. Not having any thrashed DX Rocs, I snagged the Gravity Ghost in hopes that it would season quickly. It's only been a handful of rounds but it's starting to straighten out a bit already. I throw my putters a lot, so the Roc/Comet combo feels pretty natural. I'll probably add the Drone or a Gator after I get really comfortable with the Rocs, but for now I'm making it work without a glideless mid.
