I'm hoping to build a bag around a few trusted molds. I'll be posting updates on the bag and what I feel like I am missing and I would love to have suggestions along the way. My furthest distance is near 380', and controlled distance around 325' comfortably. Oh, and I have a Fade Crunch box. 12 discs + 2 putters is my goal. Any more, and I feel like I would be in over my head.
Distance - Goal: 1 mold, 2-3 discs. When headwinds are an issue, I'm not shooting for max D, so these molds don't need to fight a lot of wind. Right now I have both Swords and Valks here. I'll probably keep the Sword around for good measure, but my focus is on Valks at this point. I'm hoping to add a few more to the mix and get a rotation once they start to turn more.

170 Star Valk - seasoned (champystar)
170 Star Valk - new (champystar)
Fairway - Goal: 1-2 molds, 3-4 discs. These discs need to fly on any given line and be trustworthy. I have an 11x Champ TB that tracks to the right before a late fade kicks in, which has really turned me on to the idea of a rotation of Teebirds in different levels of stability. They are much more in my power range than S/C PD's and Star/Champ Eagle's. The only problem here is that I might end up with just 1 mold, and I wonder if I am limiting myself too much. And my FD and 11x TB keep fighting for the same spot. So far, my FD hasn't impressed me because it seems too stable. Oh, and I am really interested in trying an MVP Volt once it gets released.
171 Star Teebird - new (champystar)
175 11x Champ Teebird - beat
169 S FD - new (champystar)
Utility - Goal: 1 mold, 2 discs. I feel set here. These cover strong headwinds, overhands, and skip shots.
175 12x Champ Firebird - new (flat)
175 11x Champ Firebird - beat (flat)
Midrange - Goal: 2 molds, 4 discs. This, and my fairway drivers, is where I need the most help. I've recently discovered the Warship, and love it for a stable mid. It can carry some serious distance. The only problem is that it really doesn't work if I am going to slim down to 2 molds here. I need something that can handle headwinds better, and something that will flip a lot more. I have a Pain for a more stable compliment, and it works well, but doesn't handle headwinds as well as a Gator, which is what I used to throw in this spot. I also throw D MD2's for understable shots, and they are beautiful! I would love to stick with them, assuming they will come into production soon (fingers crossed). Any suggestions here? I'm wide open for ideas...even if it is "get a rotation of DX Rocs and keep the Gator". On the sidelines - a seasoned opaque 178 C MD2, beefy 175 Champ Gator, and a 174 Warship (flies the same as the other).
178 Opto Pain - new
176 VIP Warship - new
180 D MD2 - beat
180 D MD2 - beat (more)
Putters - Goal: 2 molds, 3 discs. I've been considering picking up an Anode for a driving putter once they are released in Neutron plastic. I also am waiting for P2's to be released in the new P-line. Once those come into production, I'm thinking Anode, P P2, D P2. Any reason this wouldn't work? Right now I have 2 putters, with an SS Magic in there as somewhat of a placeholder until I can get my hands on a P P2 and/or N Anode.
170 D P2 - seasoned
170 SS Magic - seasoned
