Discs that have left the bag:

P-line P2: feels heavy, great in wind. Not very comfortable. P-line might be the most fragile plastic I've come across.
KC Pro Aviar: spits out and rolls away all the time
DX Classic Aviar: great disc, Nova flies similar and is more durable
DX Aviar PnA: didn't connect

DX Roc: a favorite, but doesn't stand up to the rocky courses. Will test cycling in future
KC Pro Roc: too slick
Ch Manta: was looking for a Leo3 in mid-range form but this had way too much fade
Ch RocX3: feels better in the hand than regular Roc3 but didn't need the extra stability, regular is more versatile
Lucid Verdict: same as RocX3

DX Teebird: too many stones and rocks
Ch Teebird: good disc, inconsistent plastic. Some are stiff and slick, some are grippy. Thundy covers most TB shots
Dx Thunderbird: nice dx mix, flat and os. Too hard treehits warped it beyond recognition
DX Firebird: first shot took a big chunk out of the rim, became great controldrover. THunderbird covers those shots
Ch faf Firebird: a mix of max weight Thunderbird and Destroyers covered most FB lines while beeing more versatile

Blizzard Destroyer: good for steep uphill shots in the woods, got too flippy from steep uhill shots in the woods. Cough and it's too much wind
Star Destroyer: needs alot of power, wanted to play more relaxed. Will probably come back in for summer
GStar Daedalus: found on the course. Nice distance FH disc. Didn't need it

My mids are Roc3's and Mako3's as well. Maybe you could add a lighter Mako3 in star plastic. In the mid to high 160's. I just did the same and im enjoying it. Max weight champion holds lines well and the lighter star has some turn to fill a little more understable slot.

Thanks for the input
I am currently moving in the lighter direction with most parts of the bag as I want to focus less on power and more on placement and accuracy, and also find a more relaxed playstyle. Recently swithed out my max weight Mako3 for a 176 in an attempt to make it more effortless to get that late turning drive. I am however somewhat unsure about going too light on mids as I have a KC Roc 169 that feels way too light and the Ch Roc3 171 seems as it might be a little too light aswell. Strangely enough I have a Dx Roc at 171 that feels great so maybe it's plastic related. Never tried a Star Mid before so I'll definately put it on the list of things to test thanks

Discs that have left the bag (updated)

P-line P2: feels heavy, great in wind. Not very comfortable. P-line might be the most fragile plastic I've come across.
KC Pro Aviar: spits out and rolls away all the time
DX Classic Aviar: great disc, Nova flies similar and is more durable
DX Aviar PnA: didn't connect
M-line Omega SS: the original Nova. Great disc but local stores stopped carrying Millennium
Zero Medium? Pure: found on the course. Nice FH putter. Black color is probably the reason someone lost it in the first place

DX Roc: a favorite, but doesn't stand up to the rocky courses. Will test cycling in future
KC Pro Roc: too slick
Ch Manta: was looking for a Leo3 in mid-range form but this had way too much fade
Ch RocX3: feels better in the hand than regular Roc3 but didn't need the extra stability, regular is more versatile
Lucid Verdict: same as RocX3
DX Shark: found on the course. Seemed to have been attacked by a dog. Couldn't compete with the dx Roc. Left on course for someone else to find
M-line Aurora MS: stable and straight. Mako3 flies similar in more durable plastic and easier to replace

DX Teebird: too many stones and rocks
Ch Teebird: good disc, inconsistent plastic. Some are stiff and slick, some are grippy. Thundy covers most TB shots
Dx Thunderbird: nice dx mix, flat and os. Too hard treehits warped it beyond recognition
DX Firebird: first shot took a big chunk out of the rim, became great controldrover. THunderbird covers those shots
Ch faf Firebird: a mix of max weight Thunderbird and Destroyers covered most FB lines while beeing more versatile
DX Gazelle: found on the course. Very old stamp so went in the nostalgia box
M-line Polaris LS: good turnover driver but never really clicked
M-line JLS: my first ever disc. Love it but don't want to lose it: nostalgia box
M-line EXP1: probably my all-time favorite driver. Went out of production?

Blizzard Destroyer: good for steep uphill shots in the woods, got too flippy from steep uhill shots in the woods. Cough and it's too much wind
Ch Destroyer: found on the course. Good utility disc based on throws from before I started using distance drivers. Gifted to friend
Star Destroyer: needs alot of power, wanted to play more relaxed. Will probably come back in for summer
GStar Daedalus: found on the course. Nice distance FH disc. Didn't need it
Opto Hex Raketen: found on the course before I used distance drivers. Didn't like the hex design. Left it on the course for someone else to find
Gold Bolt: found on the course. Dark green color is probably why someone lost it

Niced: (1)

First round of the year, first ever snow-round. After ~ 4 months winter break.

XT Nova 166: drives, approaches
XT Nova 170: (new) putting. Unsure, compare to 175
Star Aviar3 175: (new) seems stable enough, not super in the hand, needs more testing
Champ Manta 176: very flat and thin, feels like a driver. Sometimes stable, sometimes understable. Nice FH grip
KC Pro Roc 169: surprisingly good. Dead straight and very far
GStar Daedalus 175: Plastic seems good for winterplay. Diddy is too understable for main driver. Might be ok as turnover

Easier to play in snow than expected

2nd snowround. Wrong jacket.

Zero Medium Pure 176 : nice flat and straight putter, good grip
Star Aviar3 175: might be a bit stable for my liking, but got some good shots. Starting to get to know each other
Lucid Verdict 179 : feels great to hold, but not to throw. Great for short skip-shots. Nice FH grip
DX PFN Gazelle 174 : didn't get enough shots, seems straight. Prefer Teebird
Gold Bolt 171 : very slippery plastic. Not great in hand. Seems a little too sensitive for jackets and snow-covered tees, lots of turn and burn. When thrown correctly it goes far with a nice mid turn and fade at the end. Has potential if not for the uncomfortable feel

Been testing alot of different discs with mostly good results, ended around even (+/-2) on most rounds.

Kastaplast K3 Reko 173 : fantastic putter. Feels great in hand and flies beautiful. Will be main putter for 2018.
K1 Glow 2017/K2 Berg : nice OS drivingputter. Pretty short with dumpy fade. Needs more testing.
K3 Kaxe 172: board flat with great feel. Overstable and definately fast for a mid. Will try breaking in to see what happens.
K1 Stl 175 : great plastic, Overstable, nice compliment to Thunderbids.
K1 Grym X 171 : superb feel. Flies great. Competing with embossed destroyers
Champ Mako3 176: has become my most used mid. Taken alot of shots from Leo3.
Metal Flake Teebird3: straighter than regular TB, an upgrade but probably not needed with thundys in the bag.
Champ thunderbird 167 (red/pink): surprisingly straight out of the box. Good disc
Champ Krat 165/170/175: lightweight have a poptop dome, heavier are flat and stiffer. Light one flies for days, good for extra easy distance
Pro Destroyer 175: furthest destroyer yet. Plastic feels good and close to star, Might not hold up to rocks as well.
Star Destroyer: embossed. Way more usefull than older PM. Competing with Grym X

Hoping to finalize bag soon
