Close to 250...Most found, few bought.
Nearly all are champion, or pro. some star. I give away alot of the DXs I find I give to people I know when they loose one. Discraft I give to two people that are discraft lovers....5 stacks in the closet various pond finds in good condition, 1stack by my stero in the living room (various discs that I play with here and there), and my Roc stack on my desk....(various Dx, super rocs, flat, domey etc.) I play with 17 in the bag, four rocs, 9 drivers, 2 multi purpose., 2 putters.
Gonna post some to trade soon since the stack is getting big, and they are dropping the river in the spring.....Gotta make room!

Nope, no trackers, if I come across them though, I will let you know.
I dont hate discraft mind you, just VERY stubborn and used to innova molds.....
The wild cat, Buzz, and Xl would be my first prospects if I switched....

Hey Texas,
I would be more than willing to buy some wildcats off of you. Any light blue Z's, or any X's. For some reason the blue wildcats seem to have a different lip than the rest.

A good buddy of mine coined the phrase, "plastic addicts anonymous".

I have about 300 discs in storage, and about 100 discs that I will choose from depending on the course/conditions. Bag carries no more than 18.

:D

I didn't even buy a single one of my discs. I traded for a few and have traded/sold over 100 in the last year. We have two courses here with lakes, and I can find at least 30 on any given day, even if I search on consecutive weekends. I had one good week in Nov. where I searched 3 times and found 54, 19 and 37 respectively. Lets just say I can throw any mold I want to, period.

Found an 8X roc last time out.

I have thirty-five discs that I can find at the moment. It's possible there are a few more hiding in my room but I don't think so. Carry nineteen in the bag though probably only half of those are regularly thrown.

Not the worst, but not too tame. I probably bought 80 this year ( :oops: )

Of course, I only carry 20-25, but if I could find that illusive disc golf bag that holds 114 I'd probably be the idiot to carry it.

"Whatcha gonna throw Dave?"

"Gimme a minute... I'm looking for the disc." LOL


ROFL!!! :lol:
There's a guy in my local club just like that.
Has at least one of the whole Innova line.
Think he said he has near 100 total.
He carries at least 40 discs each round in a personally customized bag that was made as a fisherman's tackle.
Each disc apparently has a purpose for him.
Been playing for over 2 yrs, and still is struggling to cash in AM2.
I keep telling em to look up this sight and pay attention to Blake's minimalism theory, but to no avail aparently. :roll:

Personally...
I only have about 30 total.
9 in bag, 11 backups, rest are tourny stamps that I just hang.

My total was mid 50s when I posted a few days ago. I'vebought and tried a lot of different discs, and keep finding that there really isn't that much difference in many of them. I'm guilty of carrying too many on the course. There's always a couple that I "just want to try out" that get brought along. I play with a group of about 6 or 7 guys, most of us work together, and we're always swapping discs, giving each other discs, etc. I've probably given away over 50 discs over the years. I find way more discs than I care to keep...usually beat up old DX plastic. I'd bet the last 20+ discs I've found had no contact info...so I try them out and then end up giving many away to the newer players. I really need to make myself start carrying no more than 6 discs in my bag when I play........

I have about 20-22. Quite a bit to me considering I have just started a summer ago.
