Default My bag, any suggestions?

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: 5 months
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: RHBH and the occassional RHFH but just started to do that recently.
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Never actually thrown a putter for anything other than putting. Mid: Roc3 220/250'; Eagle L 280/300'


Optional:
Age: 29
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: Bad lower back pain
Other sport proficiencies?: Basketball
What do you like/dislike about your current bag?: I have way too many discs.
Specific areas of desired feedback: Want to eliminate some discs that are overlapping.
Immediate and long-term goals: Immediate goals would be to lose some discs from my main throwing bag. Long term will be to be able to properly pick out a disc that merits it on that particular hole without second guessing myself.

Bag: (disclaimer, I have quite a few discs, I know most on here have more but I feel all of these discs are hindering my development rather than helping as it would a long time DG'er) (The ones in bold are the ones in my actual bag which is a DGA shield bag)

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
Hurricane 173
Rogue 168
Force Z 174
Crush 175
Surge SS Z 173
Avenger SS 173
Flick Z 173
Predator Z 172
Groove 168
Dominator 175
Destroyer 150
Wraith 175

Starfire (L) 173
Roadrunner 175
Valkyrie 172
Teebird (TL) 165
Eagle-L 11x 167
Eagle X 167
Banshee 171
Leopard 175
Leopard 157
River 171
Amp 171




Mids:
Buzzz SS 170
Buzzz 177
Wasp 175
Roc3 180
Shark3 177
Atlas 177 (in the mail)
Ghost 175


Putters:
I really have a lot of Warlocks from S to SSS (about 10 or so) I also have a Gravity clutch which I started with and a few Wizards as well.

My putting game isn't all that bad and I have a practice basket at home. My main concern is the drivers and mid rangers.

I currently have a full bag of discs and find myself reaching for some more than others, for example, the Avenger SS (I have 2) I always reach for when I need to go to the right. My forehand just isn't there and the avenger gets me out of tight spots when I need to go understable. I can also hyzer flip this disc at will which gives me a super straight shot. Sometimes I will use the Leopard instead of the Avenger SS when it doesn't require a big cut to the right.

For stable shots I usually just reach for the TL or The Eagle X. If it's a short hole I will usually reach for the Ghost though. I've gotten it to where I can flip it pretty well.

For overstable I have found that my Rouge will do pretty well. However, it is the disc I have the least distance with and I am honestly not sure why. Sometimes I feel like I can't even throw it 200', lol.

Anyways, that's my bag and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Mids
Shark3 - OS
Buzzz - Stable
(Beat) Ghost - Understable

Fairway Drivers
Leopard - Understable
TL - Stable
Eagle-X or Banshee - OS

Distance Drivers
Avenger SS - Understable
Wraith - Stable
Predator - OS
Roadrunner - Backhand Rollers (If you throw them)

This is a setup I'd use if I were you. You don't want to over complicate the bag, so use as few discs as you can but still cover all t shots you need. If you wanna fill smaller gaps in between the discs your using just get multiples of a disc & have one more beat up the the other. You could also throw in the Atlas when you get it, it is dead straight & holds lines well.

With regards to the mid rangers though, I did want to see which I liked best and didn't plan on keeping all of them. I also do plan on selling any that I just feel will not end up in the bag to make at least 1/4 of my money back. The good thing is that I have acquired great plastic only because of this great community at a great price and I am thankful for that.

DiscinFiend - that is some great advice my man. Kind of what I was leaning towards already but it's good to know I am on the right track.

Including putters and some odds and ends I currently have about 50 discs or so. This isn't including the discs that I have given to buddies of mine to try to get them in to the sport as well

Flat flat flat. I absolutely love that disc. I actually got it in an auction here. 12 discs for $60 and that Eagle L and Star Eagle X were included as well as many other great discs. It really got me started on the plastic buying spree.

I'm anxious for that Wasp. I recently got a Buzzz TI and the finish on that is just beautiful. Thanks again.
