Default How many brands have you dabbled with?

I started with Innova (Dx Roc & Archangel) but soon after got a Tuonelan Joutsen (Swan) as a putter. Honestly though, I hit more putts with a Star Valkyrie Never got another Westside disc though I was going to try a Northman. This was in 2009-2010 and the lineup was slim.

Later I branched into Discmania, mainly because their online store was one of the few around at that time. Decided to stick with them to narrow down my options so that I dont have to try every disc by every manufacturer.

Later down the line I did try Prodigy though (novel new company, the D4 was more stable than the D1), and Dynamic too (Tresspass was good but I gave it up because of the shallow rim, later I also had a Justice for the overstability, until a SW Gator replaced it). Also bagged Wizards for a long time, and recently Spirits too.

Came across one Rampage that really bombed, still bagging it. Its just faster than anything else I've tried. Tried one Cannon too at one point but that did nothing any other overstable distance driver does for me.

Had one Daredevil Sabretooth of all things also, just because of a dope Flylife stamp.

I think that sums it up. 8 altogether then? Mainly Discmania, with couple other tries (many due to my Nikko fanboyism) and some of them stuck, some didnt.

Never owned a Discraft disc and I dont think I will go there. Nothing against em, but just want to limit my options. I think I've once thrown a Buzz but thats it. Lat64 also never even thrown I think.

Edit: could be a poll too, but I'm on my phone and dont want to hit small buttons anymore lol. Some admin wants to make it into a poll, go ahead by all means

Most of them.

Haven't tried some of the really small brands. Probably the biggest I haven't tried is Hyzer Bomb, Prodiscus, and Vibram.

Im a disc whore. I like to try just about everything. Id hate to think there was something out there that worked great for me and I never tried it. The first two years or so when I first started out were the worst. After trying most everything I now kind of know what I like and dont like and what works for me and what doesnt.

I still like to pick up new molds when they first come out and toss them a bit. If I like them theyll go in my stash, if I dont like them Ill usually give them away, but seldom will they kick anything out of my bag.

I have found some real gems through all of my experimentation. Although I dont currently bag any of these I have to give props to some really nice discs.

The Axiom Envy.

The Westside Warship.

The Discraft Heat.

The Reptillian Tyrant.

The Kastaplast Kaxe.

There are 73 unique "manufacturers" with discs on the PDGA approved list. I looked through the list and I've owned at least one disc from 26 of them. There are 10 brands where I've actually dug a little deeper and tried a decent variety of their products:

Discmania
Discraft
Gateway
Innova
Legacy
Lightning
Millenium
Prodigy
Quest
Westside

At one point or another, I've bagged at least one mold from each of these manufacturer's for a specific slot in my bag, for a significant period of time. The ones with an asterisk are in my current bag.

Innova* ...several
Millenium* ...JLS
Discmania* ...DDX
Discraft* ...several
DGA
Gateway
Lat 64
Westside* ...Warship
Dynamic
MVP* ...Amp
Axiom
Vibram
Prodigy
Lightning
Quest AT

I've owned discs from a few more, but basically only field tested a few of them, and really can't speak to anything from any other manufacturers.

Uh oh. Seems there are too many to remember, as I forgot (at least) 2 from the OP. I had a Premium Jokeri in my bag for a loooong time. Also, the Obsidian Discs Splinter had completely escaped my memory. Now theres a niche brand for you. I think they only came out with a destroyer type driver after that and nothing more.

Edit, lol:

MVP Ion, right when they came out and DD was just the pretty stamp on it.

11, huh? Here I though I was almost a Innova/DM puritan

I didn't really have a preference when I started, but I think Innova and then Discmania were the first ones I gravitated to. I then started slowly adding in some trilogy, then scaled it back and tried to throw only innova/discmania. bad idea. then i just threw what worked for a long time, a mix of prodigy, innova/dm, discraft, and trilogy, but that got boring, so to bring excitement back to my game i've decided to throw only trilogy, and ive had a lot of fun challenging myself this way so far.
