Mids:
Hornet
Buzzz
+ find an understable disc that handles power more similarly to the hornet/buzzz

Fairways:
XL - stable to understable controlled drives
Ascent - going strictly by JUFC on this one, haven't thrown it but expect it to be similar to an Eagle-X?

Distance:
Sidewinder - understable/anny/roller
Orc - stable bomber
Flick - FH/OH

Putters are personal. Use what you like best.

Meteor is a good Buzzz compliment, & I've heard Fuse is too but I've never thrown it. Preds are good FH, wind, & OH discs. I would suggest a Teebird to go with the XL. I have an X XL, slightly beat, it is a hyzer flip machine & can keep up with my Valk on a good toss. Sidewinder seems light compared to your others & I would suggest Valk or Avenger SS. Never meshed with the Sidewinder & unless you have a VERY good arm, seems like the Orc would have a hard fade. Just my .02

Edit: I used to throw a Crush. It's good for FH & a decent wind fighter too

It's incredibly difficult to say which discs will suit your skill level, particularly given that we don't know the condition of the discs.

In my bag I like to have (at least):
3 putters; one flippy, one stable, one overstable
3 midranges; same deal
3 fairway driver; same deal
3 distance drivers; same deal
2 >21mm rim max D; one stable, one overstable, I don't use these as dedicated turnover discs

pick out which discs fly that way for you.....

Yeah that will do fine, especially once it gets a nick or two in it then it'll be money.
