Why that? Because of grip and feel? Shouldn't it be the other way round?

Is this the result of bags full of one-trick-pony discs?

In my small bag where each disc is thrown on many lines, BH, FH and OH, I would have more discs if I couldn't throw forehands.

Hence, does it depend on bag size and structure?

Default Ratio

5 Putters
4 Mids
4 Fairway (7 speed)
5 Distance (9-10 Distance w/Control)

No 11 speeds or over due to getting the same distance with lower speed discs.

In my mind, the longer the disc is flying the more you are depending upon what the disc naturally does compared to what you did to it. If that makes sense…

One of the reasons I carry a couple of extra drivers. My FH game is a work in progress. I like having a couple of flippy drivers to put on annys. If I had a consistent FH I could probably remove one or two of those.

Yep, at least in my observations. I tend to throw my discs both ways, but usually have 1 that I almost exclusively throw forehand (right now, that's a drone, and I'll still throw it backhand) but don't have to have it in my lineup.

I do see quite a few people that carry forehand specific discs, mainly if they need a little extra to mask a little more torque. And out of those people, they tend to have larger bags (AX, Octo, etc) I carry a smaller lineup, so I tend to fh/bh pretty much anything.

I am the same way with 19 discs but the US mold (Archer) I have for a Right shot is used as backhand roller and the Dragon for Right shot is also used for a water disc as well as open hole tailwind/calm bombing driver due to how light the mold is. I can't do a Forehand but I could at one point. After I grew from 5 foot to 5 foot 2 inch, my current height now in a year as a teen in the 2000's, I could not forehand anymore as the disc would end up flying odd and anhyzer out to the right as if I could not give the disc power. Also if Jawbreaker plastic for Magnet did not suck in hot weather at ~95 F on up getting too much grip, I would use one less mold starting in January 2019 with the Proline Titanic.
