The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
It seems I notice that in the bags of Many people are a LARGE assortment of drivers, maybe 1-2 different mids, and a putter or two. I myself carry quite a few drivers now, BUT, I can't seem to get away from carrying a lot of Mids also. I have found mids that I LOVE, albeit probably to many of them.
I have a homemade cart.
it is roughly 50 / 50.
What I mean, is 50% Innova and 50% Discraft.
I have at least three drivers and mid-ranges each.
One goes left, one goes right, and one goes straight.
Then I have an approach disc, and my putter.
Then I have a couple fun discs that I can't let go off.
3+3 Mid Range
1 + 1 Approach putt
5 extras oh wait, I have a couple of extra of my favorites.
And 95 % of them are bright yellow.
I use a beer cooler bag, carries about 14
Since I review discs the line-up changes regularly among the 15 companies who have supported my review effort.
All told have about 70 discs.
In time it'll evolve to a lighter weight array for calm days
and a heavier one for the usual windy days we get up here.
Everthing Flys !!!! Just make sure you get the Right Weights in each Disc !!!
You all need to look more international in your discs
Daredevil, Latitude 64, Westman, are among a number of international companies doing great discs.
Ching and Quest have some sweet offerings too.
and watch some of the newer players, Skyiron as an example.

14 in my Mini-Revolution / 21 on my Disc Golf Cart. I should take a picture. I think Mark Wilson ( M-Dub ) has a photo somewhere !
I have played Tournaments on a Ball Golf course and the Max you can carry is 14. Not sure if the rules have changed on Ball Golf courses.
Woods course 5-7 drivers, 4-6 mids, 2-3 putters.
Open courses 8 drivers, 3 mids, 2 putters.
Local course 3 drivers, 2 mics, 2 putters
I try to limit my selection down to where I throw what I know. I used to carry 20+, after switching to bring 10-15 disc a started playing much better. Now each course calls for its own disc selection but I have about 7 disc that I throw 90% of the time, and the other disc are just for those get out of trouble and water shots.
