I have more than I need, but sometimes it’s worth the cost to try something new or fun. I also have a bad habit of hanging onto oddball discs or ones that I like but not enough to bag.

Like I don’t “need” multiple glow/metal flake Teebirds, but I don’t really want to sell them either...

Good point.

I have the same problem, especially with mids. Dx rocs, esp buzzz, Aurora MS, they all do pretty much the same thing and I should just pick a mold and stick with it but I don’t want to break up with any of them

Started playing in 2015 and bought a truly unreasonable number of discs over the ensuing years. Recently sold over 200 on Ebay, many fetching prices I couldn’t have imagined. Felt great to get rid of them and make a lot of money in the process.

Wife screams at me every day as new discs arrive. I’ve probably bought 50 in the past month.

Very addictive. But, I feel like I must sort them out, to find out what works, what doesn't, and for those that work, how and when to use them. Currently in love with a Star Magna 148g. It looks like its in slow motion, zipping around all over the fairway. In a little more than a year I've bought at least 40.

lol. I'm going to use you, to get the heat off of me. I tell my wife you have your Kohl's shopping, and I have my disc shopping. That quiets her for a short time.

Yeah. My wife has her hobbies and I have mine. I don’t gripe about her spending so she can’t complain about mine.

I'm around thirty five discs... probably 15 are putters as I tried a lot out trying to find the ones I wanted to throw and ones I wanted to putt....

Good news is I'm not worried about collectible stuff. I just want to play.

I did buy a couple of holiday stamps as my wife likes to decorate and they add something different to the house.

This thread made me do a headcount to see how many I currently own.

20 discs in the bag in my trunk
12 discs 'in the rotation' in a trunk box, primarily for snow rounds or courses with tons of water
32 backup throwers for my core molds
7 practice putters for the back patio
24 discs that are molds I don't throw; primarily trade bait at this point
0 collectors discs!!!
2 discs with my kids' artwork on them hanging in my office

97 total, which is more than I expected. I was thinking I was around 80. Oops.

If there is a silver lining to my over purchasing sob story, it's that I have drastically curtailed my buying. At this point I know exactly which molds I like, and very rarely do I grab something that isn't one of those molds. I'm mostly through the phase of experimenting with different weight and plastic combos, too. Now I really just keep my eyes open for a specific mold/plastic/weight combo in discs I throw regularly.
