How many diffrent types of discs do you carry in your bag? I think I am going to go with about 4-5 diffrent ones depending on what works. I will probally keep a main driver(Beast), two mids, and the avair. I might put in a 2nd driver such as the Boss to replace the Beast.(that will probally never happen) I might also use a Eagle for a short yardage holes on the drive.

When your about to pack up your bag, think of the course you will be playing at. In my home town, we have 3 courses and each one is different. So for each course, i mix and match different discs. Usually i have about 5 discs: two drivers, two midrange, and a putter.

My drivers (166g valkyrie, 174g beast) give me a 50/50 decision; I can go with the heavier, more stable Beast on open shots that are less wooded and give it a huge hyzer the whole way there. Or i can go with the less stable, lighter Valkyrie on tight shots with no open space which will give me the ability to throw it far but straight.

My Midrange (170g roc, 170g buzzz) also allow me to make a split decision. The Roc is great for any shot: hyzer, straight, anhyzer. The Buzzz will keep a straight, B-Line path to the basket.

My putter (170g magnet) is great. Not much can be said other than this disc is not only great for close putting, but also an awesome approach from 50 - 100 ft.

So, all-in-all: It does not matter how many discs you bring along with you, as long as you have the right disc for the right shot. Its ALL about shot selection for your main goal: minimal strokes.
