16-20 in my grip for all tournament or serious rounds. 6-7 in my DD sniper bag for light carry days, 5-6 in the nutsac for unplanned rounds that I grab it out of the truck and go.

I see a lot of the larger bags are large amounts of putters and mids, and I can understand that, because I personally believe the short game is the most important.

Basically, I see a need to be able to throw a disc left to right, right to left, and straight. This can be accomplished with one disc, but using understable and overstable discs make these tasks much easier and more consistent. So then you have distance considerations. There is a sizable distance difference between my roc, my teebird, and my boss, so using different speed discs makes judging distance easier and more consistent. Then the touch/landing. My putter and my Roc tend to glide in easier, less skip, and in tall grass can stop on a dime. Using a driver can cause a great skip and roll, so using all the discs in the short game can get you into hard to reach positions if you know how the discs react when hitting the ground, another great need for having various type of discs. And rollers, I find like throwing, understable will turn up straight, then go right (RHBH) much easier than overstable discs, so depending on the distance, and which way you want the disc to turn, you need to roll all of your discs in your bag to know which does what easier. Forehand/Backhand shots need to be practiced likewise.

All this ramble to say, I have met people who have certain roller discs, certain forehand discs, certain backhand discs, etc. And the discs they have all overlap, and I am always

The only reason I can understand carrying more discs is for replacements in competition. IMO, if you can't get every shot you need out of 7-10 discs...you need more practice.

I bet most top pros only throw about that many discs per tourney. All the other discs they carry are back-ups and rarely used specialty stuff.

I carry from 12 to 20 depending on the situation. Long days I tend to go fewer. Tournaments I add in some back ups. Casual rounds i add more backup so I can throw multiple shots.

I carry:
2 wizards (some times a third) 1 for putting 1 for driving
M4 anny/ straight mid
buzzz (some times 2) workhorse mid
drone specialty short shots overstable
FD straight no fade to anny shots
Teebird (usually 2 or 3) workhorse fairway
XXX (sometimes 2) Get out of trouble utility ultra overstable
Roadrunner straight to anny/ turnover shots
PD (some times 2) more D than teebirds less than destroyers
destroyers (sometimes 2) Workhorse big D they come in and out I tend to have better luck with slower discs.
And occasionally some others to test out

My large bag can carry 20+. Out of that, lets see, at Dabney this week I used a Surge, 2 Katanas, 2 Wraiths, Beast, Vulcan, 2 Orcs, Teerex, Buzz, River, Dart, Aviar. So 15 discs used from the bag.
But for steep, rocky courses I have a small bag, 8-10 discs, with no doubles or adversely-colored discs.

10 or 11 discs in my casual bag; add a few duplicates for tourneys. I usually play better with fewer choices, so it doesn't make sense to lug around the extra weight.
