I dont get what's so difficult about having various molds. There are several discs that i literally threw once and knew and felt what they do and they went into the bag right away.

Even mold minimalist extraordinaire has 10 Rocs and has to compare them to figure out which one is the flippiest etc.

I think its personal preferene, but either way you have to throw your plastic to know it.

What juke said, you do you.
Oh don't worry, I'm sure S'ingD's86 is off getting offended in some chess forum somewhere or nursing a hangover from his RNC watch party or something.

Play your game and don't worry about what other people throw or do. That's the great thing about this sport you can play it however you like. Don't let someone else gatekeep you from doing something different from them. Chris Dickerson and Nikko carry a ton of molds and I'm pretty sure they are doing just fine.

Well, not a flame war at the moment, but not what I intended.

"You do you" is always valid, but I was looking for a more general exploration of the topic. For instance, on the topic of non mold-minimalism, I completely agree that there isn't a magic disc for people out there, and buying new discs can definitely turn into a search for a magic disc.

I was looking for some introspective commentary from those who understand or embrace minimalism. I'm not feeling browbeaten into embracing it or anything like that.

I still don't understand how this is "direct marketing"?

Who is marketing what?

Are you confused, or just don't know what that term means?

The original point of mold minimalism and cycling is for new players to improve and learn how discs fly.

If you can master a few molds and learn how they break in (and how that affects flight), then you can branch off to bagging many different molds.

It's simple, you buy a Roc, then you get two of your friends to buy Rocs, and you get a percentage of those purchases. They then get two friends each to buy them and you get a percentage of that percentage and so on. Everybody wins!!!

Lol, it's quite obvious you've never cycled Rocs.

This never happens.

Sounds like a recipe for a lot of perfectly good rocs in used bins. I'm in.
