Default Overlapping drivers?

I'm a primarily RHBH thrower, and have a stockpile of drivers at home, therefore making my driver selection a little difficult. I'm set on my putters and mids. I'd like to know if the drivers in my bag are overlapping with each other and any holes in my bag.

In my bag currently:

175 Champion Teebird - Primary straight driver, 380 and in this is getting tossed

171 Goldline River - Hyzers and gentle annies, can get up to 350 with complete control

(Where the trouble starts)

17? Neutron Amp - Most fun driver to throw but similar to tee bird

172 Opto Saint - Long hyzers, more open long drives

175 Champion Valk - Just got it in a trade

175 DX Firebird - Windy day driver, Tommies and thumbers

170 Champion Beast - Primary FH driver

165 Champion Tern - Just got this today, only "warp-speed" want to give it a try

Thank you guys in advance, all your help is appreciated

If your Amp is similar to the Teebird then you probably have a noodle arm. And if you have a noodle arm, you don't need the Beast, or Tern. So, how far can you throw?

Edit: I must have no reading comprehension. So you throw the Teebird 380, but the Amp is similar? Either that Teebird is beat, or the Amp is abnormally stable.

I haven't thrown the amp much but I've been able to put the amp wherever I want when I throw it. The course I used it on where all relatively short drives <220', and the teebird has been my primary driver since I got it so its a little worn in.

Ok, that makes sense. Only you know what works best in your bag. The only thing I would say for sure is to shelf the Valk for now. Work with the other discs and see if some fly similarly. Weed out those you don't feel are needed. There is no point in carrying extra weight.

One thing for certain is that you don't need more drivers.

pick what you like:
saint or valk or beast for longer shots than teebird
river or amp for understable needs

firebird(utility),teebird(primary straight like you said) and tern(max d) are good

If you throw a T-bird 380, that Tern is going to bomb. You're going to love it.

Also lose the Turn & get a Champion or Star Firebird. Getting a more durable plastic will keep the disc overstable for longer & it won't get screwed up as much on your overhand throws.
