My most irreplaceable disc is my very beat in and understable Pro D XL.
If I had to use only two discs, it would be a Leopard and a Wizard. Can do about anything with just those two.
The Groove as a Junk disc:
People wonder why I sometimes throw a Groove and why I'm always looking for cheap Grooves. The Groove is the joke of the internet and the bane of newbs. Well, here's why.
I use a Groove as my 'Junk Disc'. What's a 'Junk Disc'? That's a term I use to describe a disc that I can lose without remorse. I use junk discs in risky situations.
Why use a Groove as a junk disc? The answer is $$. Because this is a bad disc I can get them cheap. I'd prefer to have stack of Champ Destroyers & Blizzard Bosses laying around but I don't ($$$$). I can get Grooves cheap or even free sometimes.
Is the Groove the worst disc? Not in my opinion. I'd take a wonky/unpredictable Groove over a Dragon any day!
