hmm. Blake, as a newer player I would wittle that # 14-16 down to half that for awhile till you really "know" each disc and why it does what it do.or at least empty half your bag when you can in a practice round each hole. it should help your game.
heck... never hurts to even just take a disc or three out for a round or two also. you might surprise yourself.
I carry 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 ( sorry.. had to count them mentally) different discs, add 1 for having 2 putters, add 1 for having 2 buzzz's, add 1 for having 2 destroyers, and add 1 for 2 Wraiths and I guess that means I typically carry 13 discs.
there is a few more of those that I have multiples of in various stages, like valks and beasts, but just don't keep in the bag.
I throw in something different sometimes when I play casual, minis, or solo practice rounds as well, so probably carry 16 discs on average.
another thing I have noticed, and this may be different for some of you, but I prefer not to carry any "water-specific" discs.
I'd rather have confidence in a disc and any shot I throw than think it's OK to lose a disc or have it be a floater.
That theory has paid off for me in recent years:) ( no one remind me of lost discs in water I had recently.. I'm trying to block that out!!!)
OK it's well documented I have a thing for discs. Soo it pains me and my back to say that I carry 22...YES, 22. I'm not proud of it, but every time I try to take some out. That little voice in my head says. OOoohhh.. are you sure? You might need it for this shot or that shot... Help!
I have been playing for 16 years and have tried a zillion different combination's. My current set up is between 15 - 18 discs at a time with an Identical bag of 15 - 18 sitting in the trunk for back up. I also carry all this weight and several water bottles on a modified Pull cart. No sense in having back problems when you can pull it all behind you!
1 SS Magic (for under 30ft putting)
1 Soft Magic (for outside 30ft putting)
1 Soft Wizard (for approach shots and drivable holes)

Find a pull cart and modify it!!!
It's the best thing that has ever happened to my back!!
I got mine for $2 at a yard sale. I used part of an old 78" Chevy truck hood to make a rack and some old bed frame square tube to make braces, and a can of black spray paint. Total cost $7 and an hour of fabricating. When I get a chance I'll post a picture of it!
That's pretty much it for tournament rounds. Depending on the course I might throw a Monarch or Avenger SS in for Anhyzer drives or a Shockwave, Buzzz or Element for straighter upshots or a Glide for an additional Fairway option.
