Beadless (PnA)
Small Bead
Big Bead
Big Bead Aviar-X
Big Bead PnA
Yeti Pro Test Config

I'm sure I left some out too so if anyone wants to fill in the blanks, feel free.

No. I think that would be too limiting considering people use the same mold in various plastics. That brings up an interesting consideration though, since I have a couple of discs that are of the same "mold" but are considerably different...like two pre-Avery Star Destroyers that have difference wing curvature and PLH.

(4) BB Aviars - Champion -3@ 175g, 1@ 150g (flippy)
(1) Zone - Z - 172g
(2) Buzzz - Cryztal Z -178g (flippy), Glo - 178g
(2) Leopard - Pro - 174g (flippy), Champion - 174g
(1) Eagle X - Star - 172g
(2) Valk - Star - 174g (flippy), Star - 175g
(2) Wraith- Star - 170g, Champion- 172g

My normal bag would add a Buzzz SS, Eagle (L), and the rarely used Blizzard Boss. Depending on the course. I don't like a heavy bag.

It was just being talked about on the McBeth sticky as something he responded to a question about doing like ball golf and limiting the number of clubs (in our case, discs) you can carry. He mentioned disc limit and mold limit so I thought I'd have some fun w/ it.

I think it's great to talk ideas like this out before it ever even becomes a twinkle in the PDGA rules committee's eye. While I don't think it's a completely dumb idea, I think it would be difficult to implement and would require defining what constitutes a mold...haha, good luck w/ that one.

3x Nuke 1-z glow 2-esp
3x Wraith 1-pro kinda beat 2-star in different stages of wear
2x Roadrunner 1-camp glow 1-star
2x Comet 1-z 1-esp
1x Warship tournement
1x XD does anything I want. I don't know why there isn't more talk about this disc.
3x Wizard 1-RFF 2-ssss

I would only be taking a firebird and zone out of my current bag for this setup.

This is messed up, but I almost can't do it with only 7 molds. 25 discs is easy for me, but I prefer to have a durable version of each mold I prefer.

Fun exercise, but while a 25 disc limit rule seems feasible, the 7 mold limit seems much harsher to me.

Seems like a 25 disc limit, but only 7 molds, caters to those who like to rotate beat-up-able plastics in the same mold...or to be more blunt, those that throw Rocs, the disc that's essentially 7 molds in one. I hit too many trees to count on relaibly breaking in 'cheaper' plastics. The best I can come up with:

3x Destroyer
1x xXx
1x Volt
3x Tbird
1x Cryztal Buzz
1x Opto Fuse
3x Ion

Sobering thought, if I ever had (have) to do this for a PDGA event I would struggle, given my current bag set-up of something like:

1x Katana
1x Destroyer
1x Beast
1x xXx
1x (sometimes) Sidewinder
1x Volt
1x Tbird
1x River

1x RC3
1x Cryztal Buzzz
1x Opto Fuse
1x ESP Comet
2x Rhyno
2x Aviar P&A
2x Ion

There's a good bit of overlap in this latter, clearly. I'm still trying out some things, narrowing down my "core" bag. But the # of molds vs. discs problem I'd face is clear.
