Default Overlapping Discs?

I am carrying the maximum number of discs that I would like to be carrying in my Fade Crunch Box and I want to pare it down to the essentials. I am about 50/50 BH/FH off the tee and then mostly BH for my approach and putting. Here is what I am carrying now.

Divers
Star X-Caliber 172g (Maximum Distance FH Driver)
Star TeeRex 172g (First FH Driver)
Star TeeBird 175g (Primary FH Driver)
ESP XL 174g (Primary BH Driver)
ESP Surge 174g (just picked it up recently and want to learn to throw it)
Champ Valkyrie 172g (BH Driver - Fades more than the XL)
Champ Orc 167g (BH for hard fades and thumbers/tommies)

Mids
FLX Buzz 169g (only mid I carry)

Putters
R-Pro Aviar 175g
DGA Titanic 175g (just played a couple rounds with it)

I know that I should probably decide to retire the Valk and the TeeRex but I am not sure. Alternatively are there some gaps that need to be filled? So what do you guys think?

i think we need to know your most thrown discs, from what i can see there is overlap between:
XL and valkrie
Surge and Orc
X caliber and Teerex

these discs aren't identical to each other but i think that you could pick one or the other out of those three groups of two, also you should be throwing midranges a lot more

How in the world do you compare the surge and the orc and the xcal and teerex ? No idea on the XL and Valk, never thrown an XL.

Good thoughts, I was thinking of taking out the Valk and the TeeRex. Even though I only have one mid in my bag, I do throw it on essentially every hole.

You are missing out, the XL is the longest, straightest driver I have ever thrown.
