It's that time of year again and I'm hoping to play as much as possible this year.
I just started last fall and have played a whopping 7 times now. I got a basic beginner set from Dunhams Sports for christmas. I'm just curious as to what discs you all use, how many, and and types.

I currently use the following 3 Innova Disks

Leopard DX Driver 170g
Shark DX Midrange 150g
Aviar putter

I'm anxious to see how they break in and behave also as I learn to consistently throw them. I'll probably stick to just these 3 this year as I learn unless one gets broken. or I get to play a lot and need to add as one becomes understable.

And for you multi-disc-ers, how much of a PITA is it carry those large bags?

Well I am a multi discer. I carry the Revolution Dual pack seen here


Here is what is in my bag 95% of the time. I also have about another 30 backup disc and random disc at home along with my portable basket.

In the bag right now
Putters
Pro Pig
SSS Gateway Voodoo
SS Gateway Voodoo

Mid range
Pro D Buzzz
ESP Buzzz
ESP FLX Buzzz
2x demons

Drivers
2x DX Tbirds
Start Tbird
2x champ Monarchs
Pro Wraith
Start Wraith
Champ Groove
Champs Teerex
Champ Firebird


I know it seems like a lot but they are in different stages of wear and have them incase I loose one during a round.

It is not a PITA to carry a bag at all. I find it to be more of a PITA to carry just disc with now bag.

Star Destroyer 169 - Couldn't live without it
Star Tee Rex 170 - This thing has been through hell and back and is still pretty damn stable.
Champion Monarch 175 - Meh, I liked this disc at first but the more it gets broke in the more I am over-throwing it.
A 174 and a 175 Star Tee Bird - Straight fliers and tough as nails, love these for the wooded courses.
I also have a light Valkyrie and I might still have a champion Tee Bird too.

MRV BABY! - Until recently this was my only mid-range. I now have coyote, a Z-glide, a Roc and a classic Roc.

Two Aviar putters.

In addition to the discs I have a bottle of water, marker disc, pen, scorecard and a rag. If it's going to be a long day I will usually bring some ale. The next brewery project is going to be a cart that holds my bag and an insulated keg.

In the past I haven't carried a bag, but I will this year.

I don't carry too many discs, but I've generally got:
Star Valkyrie
Star Destroyer
KC Pro Banshee
Star Leopard
Blowfly Putter
Aviar Putter

I've got a number of other discs that rotate in and out. I really like Star plastic.

The blowfly is a nice disc to have if you're playing at a course with water (or cliffs). Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge, MI has a hole that ends in a downhill to a stagnant pond. Thanks to the blowfly I've never lost a disc in there.

That's when it becomes money with the hyzer flip! Also, makes a great roller disc. that is why I carry 2 of them

I still haven't mastered the roller but I will give it shot when I go out tonight. I just can't believe how easily it flips, it was a pretty stable disc last season and it really hasn't been thrown into nearly as many trees as most of my drivers.

I've been disc golfing before(in my college days) and know that there are some essentials being left out here. You hippies know what I'm talking about.

I keep it simple with three disks. Nothing special

Aviar-X putt and approach
Innova Champion VALKYRIE
Innova Rock Mid range multi-purpose.

They're all filthy too. Gotta get some new once spring comes around.

I have 5 discs. Often I end up lending a couple to a friend. Trying to get back into it a gain. I had a tear in my right wrist a couple of years ago and my wrist aches after a round of disc golf.
