Obsessed with disc golf me: It really depends on how rare the mold is. If it's a core mold, I never stop looking for more, but I'm frugal about pulling the trigger. I got lucky and stocked up on a lot of discs before they really gained popularity so I was able to get backups in the 10s for most of them before they exploded in price. $15-20 now is better than $40 later.

Realistic me: Having said that, if I had to do it all over again, I'd just use discs until I lost/broke them and find something else to replace them. At this point there are way too many molds on the market to have to hoard favorites. I'm also well aware that I'll never be above an Intermediate division thrower so any inconsistency in a new disc is more me than it is the disc.
