I have a friend that has been playing for about 2.5 years that only carries 2 discs; a Z Surge and an ESP Buzzz. He putts with the buzzz. He throws almost every shot forehand and he holds his own in our group of "average" players well. I guess it just depends on how seriously you want to take DG.

Stable Putter - McPro Aviar
Stable Mid - Make3
Stable Fairway - Teebird
Stable to Overstable Driver - Destroyer

I could get by with those 4 discs if i really needed to. Wouldn't enjoy it as much, for more than a casual fun round, but I could basically make do and cover every shot i'd need with those 4 discs.

I built a "travel bag" for when i travel for work. I can carry 8-9 discs in it.

1 - McPro Aviar (Putter)
1 - KC Aviar (Slightly Beat)
1 - Rhyno
1 - Drone
1 - King Cobra
1 - Leopard
1 - Whippet
1 - Boss

Stiff DX Aviar for putting and upshots,
DX Roc over 175g for long upshots and short drives in all wind conditions,
Stable driver now a ZNuke 168g,
Understable driver (roller?) now a 175 Champ Valkyrie, maybe 174 Star Vulcan,
Overstable driver Heavy Nuke or my 168g star Boss.
(maybe throw in a Blizzard Boss)

I use to play with a guy at work and all he carried was a Star Starfire. He knew the ins and outs of that disc. He was even a good putter with it, and it got under my skin, lol.

I could get by with the following:

Grip Spike for putting and short upshots.
Z Comet for straight and turnover type middling shots.
Bio Suspect for middling hyzer shots.
Star Firebird for FH approaches.
Star Teebird for BH drives.
Star Orc and Star AJ Destroyer for FH drives and other misc. shots.


Yep, that would about cover it. I should really get some backups of those discs, as well.

I'm a lower caliber player(DGCR rating of 899) and I get by with the seven in my signature. One day I'll start bagging high speed drivers, but as of now they're superfluous.

I'm in the process of dialing down my bag, right now.

I _think_ I could do my entire home course (Golden Gate Park) with a Proton Anode and a Proton Volt. That being said, I think a Ti Buzzz and either a Tensor or a Shock make a nice addition. I am slimming my max distance drivers down, too, and I'm thinking Crank and Hurricane, there, but there's very little reason for them on my home course save 1-3 holes.

Minimum? Fooey on the minimum.

I carry as many discs as I can get away with. My cart lets me haul about 25. I would like a few more.

More discs=more shots=more practice. We all have time restraints. If both of us have half an hour to warm up before a round and you have one driver in your bag you will throw fewer drives than I do because I have 15 drivers in my bag. You throw one shot and walk after it. I throw a stack of drivers.

More practice makes you a better player.

I've built a bag around travelling that is small enough for local courses without having to schlep around a ton of discs. The keys are mold minimalism and carrying duplicates in different stages of wear.

So a basic bag setup for me would be:

2 Aviar
2 Comets
2 Leos
2 Teebirds
1 Roc

Each mold that I commonly throw I have a back-up in case I lose a disc. The roc I don't throw enough to warrant a backup, as I mainly use it as a utility disc.

If I lose a disc on the road, no big deal. Sometimes I'll carry another junker Leo if it's a course with tons of water.

Nothing is worse than being in the middle of a 9-day roadtrip and losing a workhorse from your bag.
