Right now, I am using the orange and blue combo, but during tournament season, I use the blue and pinks. Windy days, I can switch to all pinks, all orange is the mountain setup, while all blue is the summer fun rounds. Pink and orange hardly ever mix.
Great idea with color coding, although I'm a fan of multiple colors for ease of selection from the bag. Your switching of discs based on mountainous or windy or summer rounds was exactly what I was going for. Thanks!

I alternate the discs, so it would be pink, blue, pink, blue, etc. This lets me know if I'm ever missing a disc. Two blues together mean I left one or lost one.

I also have more understable molds in the snow bag. Hopefully the snow bag stays in the closet for a good 9 months now.
#2 driver from Lighting is fine, though the disc if 170 grams or above will not float. Innova Wahoo floats too, as does the Rubber Putter a Lighting disc if under a certain weight. Also all Lighting discs are really cheep as the brand that now owns it is selling off the old stock to make room for them making the mold if the mold was popular enough in the first place, so 99% of the discs will be made.

I haven't tried any Lightning discs, heard a rumor GGGT owns them now. I own both a Wahoo and a Dragon and both are so understable it is near impossible to rely on them. Most peeps on dgcr have had similar experiences with those discs. Thanks for the Lightning suggestion I might try a few out.

#2 driver flies like an XL bit a tad slower and more glide, so they get about the same distance. Hope the newer DuPont makes the #2 Driver more durable, the old plastic I had mine in the disc was not durable before my heavier 172 gram disc sank in water after 15 minutes. The Rubber Putter also Floats too and is not as popular as the #2 driver, also makes for a great approach/long putt disc too. Other brands like Auqaflight make all of there basic plastic discs to float in water, it looks like the brand is on Infinite discs.

Hm. I only have my regular bag, and a condensed version for 'it's way to hot to carry 23 discs' bag.

Eh, I have a regular bag and a gyro bag (which is basically just for fun). My regular bag is pretty versatile; I geek out over molds and bag building theory for that very reason. I just add more wind fighters and/or lose-able drivers for water carries depending on the course. If the weather looks like it will be particularly nasty for a tourney I will basically opt for a mini-Vibram bag just to survive. If the course is really open I might add more drivers or really wooded I might add more mids and putters. Fortunately I don't have to have a Winter bag.

Mostly just hard to play in general, and honestly I think playing in the winter in places like this can be detrimental at times. No traction and cold/wet can lead to bad habits that are hard to break. Managing your bag to allow more standstill shots or forehand’s is a good plan in the snow or cold. Less chance of slipping, and your more stable on icy frozen ground.

I live in my too. You nailed it with the standstill prt. I go out with put and approach discs and a couple mids maybe a fd and tee bird if I’m ambitious

Discs that I can throw like normal when wet is what goes in my bag basically all year. I might swap 1 or 2 for a softer plastic, but usually I use the same discs all year. I bag 6-8, use 3 or 4, and change 1 or 2 out at times if I want to learn another disc.

I'm a person who does better with 1-3 discs over 10. My mind is already made up. The only tourneys I won for AMs are (2) One and Done events. Each time I used my River. At low power I can put that disc right by pin every time so I don't have to worry about 6' (or more) putting with a god damn River lol.

I have a regular bag and a testing stuff out bag. I tend to rotate a few discs through depending on conditions. I may swap an eagle l out for an x if it’s particularly windy, things like that. The testing stuff out bag is generally for backups I may purchase these days. I have what I like now and don’t really see it changing any time soon. If I pick up a new backup or 3 I’ll put them in the testing bag. Usually take that to do field work, really open course, or farm course rounds.

Really the goal is to know my bag AND my backups. I lost a perfect roc last year without having one beat in for backup and it still haunts me.
