I leaned on 7's pretty heavily and then started leaning on my Hatchet really heavily in the fall. I took all my 7's out around Thanksgiving.

I ended up losing my Z Wasp and filling that slot with an F2, but that is the only 7 that I plan to bag for the forseeable future.

I carry a 24-disc bag and I look at each one of them as a different personality. Except for a few that are recent a Sword and Anax that I'm trying to get to know. Out of the 22 I know how to use, four drivers, a fairway, and putter are going to get pulled on most courses I play at least a few times a round. The rest are situational, some frequently, others not so much, a few it's time to trade in for something else. I have a Heat and Hatchet that I can't even remember the last time I pulled, but I know the line to hit when its time. So, for myself it's about being patient with those discs I don't use much and wear out those that I do.

As for a 7-speed my Star Leopard has been my workhorse the past several months, very reliable and if I lose it, I'm going straight to the disc shop. Because of the sucess of my Star Leopard, about a month ago I picked up my first Halo a Leopard3, and I love the straight glide. My Underworld can be picture perfect on an anhyzer or turnover or can be awful. But I'll stick with it.

I just think every disc I have in the bag has a purpose whether it's being used or not frequently. Those I find with no purpose at all get traded in for another disc to experiment with. I would suggest hanging on to the 7-speed, you may find use for it again.

I just bag 2-3 FDs, then roadrunners, PDs and a firebird. Gotta have a couple of FDs, especially in the woods.

Sorry double post but I disremembered some stuff.

Check ODRB's bag thread. He jumps from rocs to OLFs with some rare additions in between. Dude at my local shop does it different, he goes from 7 speeds to distance drivers. Says the distance gap isn't enough to justify control drivers.

You'll always come back to the FD though....

I went from Buzzz (speed 5? I forget) to the 9 class for multiple years. Between a Buzzz and a Valkyrie there isn't a true need...I do now bag Teebirds as an inbetween.

As already said do what works for you. Most large bags are superfluous even for the greats like Ken and Paul.

I also ended up doing the same as your local shop dude. I go from speed 7's, teebird, FD, leos and then up to a stack of Wraiths in different plastics for different stabilities. Only exception is that Firebird for forehands.
Was originally just trying to trim the bag down and ditching 3-4 9 speeds worked and didn't hurt my game any.
Truth be told I could probably ditch the Wraiths, most of the 7's and bag a few speed 9's and be fine.

Sometimes I just take my Craves out and use them all day, and often shoot really well. Then I get confused again - a stable Crave and a Barsby Roadrunner ... do I need them both?

I like throwing close to full power, hence my desire for all the discs. If I power down I early release into first available.

Trying to think what 9 speed I’d power down on to get an FD flight. Maybe the Heat. Sidewinder would be too stable. Nothing does what the Essence does, but it’s an 8 speed.

I'm in a similar place at this point, but with 9 speeds. Honestly I'm not sure outside of my FH/utility discs I don't really need anything longer than a 7/8 speed on the courses I play. I carry 2-4 12+ speeds but use them on very few holes, and even then I probably should take the small distance penalty and throw a more accurate slower disc. If the gap was more of 60-80 ft than 30-40 like it currently is, I wouldn't have this dilemma. Maybe I just need to retool my form again...
