Default New Bag or Discs?

I have a new octothorpe and around 200 discs, but I still want to buy more stuff. My throwers include konopiste ddx, eo pdx, brinster Teebird among others. I love to throw discs with awesome stamps. I was also thinking about buying an upper Park designs shift. What would you guys do with a bunch of disc golf money? I'd love to hear/see some suggestions of your favorite discs and bags.

I, too, have around 200 discs. If I find a disc that I throw or would complement what I throw, I would get it. I've been lucky to find sooooooooooo many deals on this site, so I might think about upgrading my bag.

I have an Academy back pack style bag, with a PVC frame in the works. It suits me pretty well, but sometimes you want a rigid frame that's built into the bag. And I could use a bag that has a rain fly, since it would enable me to play more rounds in precipitous weather.

Maybe buy a cart style bag that doubles as a seat, entrance into clinics held by top tour pro's and grow the sport by buying the newbies that I get into the game by buying them their own beginner set of 3-4 discs.

1. Buy a slightly smaller bag than my original tour series gripeq. I like it but I really only need about 16-18 discs, not the 21 that I currently carry. Probably a B15? Would have to be a gripeq bag because I think the rainfly is just that valuable.

1b. Buy a delta/zuca cart. They are too cost prohibitive to me but if I had fat stacks sitting around I'd invest in one.

2. Buy a bunch of backups of the stuff I'm throwing in exact weight and colors I like. For example, I only have 2 sDDx, and one is a dark blue which I don't really prefer. I like bright easy to see colors. I don't care about cool stamps personally so I'd just stock up on stock stamps

3. Save the rest for registering at the tournaments I want to play this year.

Depending on your skill level the best money you can spend is on lessons. It is cool to have all of the most expensive stuff but in the end the only thing that matters is how close you can get to the basket off the tee and what % of putts you make. Some of the best guys I have played against rock bags and discs that are 10-15 years old.

I have had my eye on a delta or zuca cart forever. That would also be my vote.

And by the way, what is a shift?

If I had the extra cash and wanted to spend it on my game, I'd buy a few dozen 170g X Comets.
For me at least, they are the perfect field work disc.
They'll fly 300 feet "on a rope" if thrown correctly. If not thrown correctly, they will fly badly.
