I often play 3 disc rounds, I’ll run the course with 3. It’s a great way to learn a new disc, break a disc in or work on a disc/shot that hasn’t been cooperating.
One disc sounds like less fun... I would go comet or roc depending on wind. Both have great distance and control.

Yeah, I feel like three discs is the point where I can reasonably play disc golf and score OK. I'm likely not getting birdies but I can throw conservative lines and avoid very many bogies. I've done a three disc round a couple times when teaching someone how to play, and when doing so I went with Envy/Teebird3/D-line FD. What's odd about that is that none of those discs are what I'd choose for a one disc round (Emac Truth), and I don't even bag a Teebird3 or FD in my full bag. I prefer faster fairways in the 9 speed range, but if I'm only carrying three discs then TB3 and FD's get the nod because I can power them down easier to make up for not carrying mids.

My putting putter, a Dagger, is a bit of a one trick pony so ever since I've picked it up, the idea of a 2 or 3 disc round sounds much better.

I'd probably roll with a Proxy for a true one disc round tho.

Berg. If the course is really open like a golf course it probably wouldn't be very fun, but thats how I feel about those courses anyways.

Sounds like you haven't played a 1 disc round. It's tons of fun! And a great way to get to know a disc. It truly shows puts a disc to the test of it's versatility, and is also fun for casual rounds. Besides, it's more a hypothetical question. Almost like if you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, or have one meal.
3 discs is cool, but I don't often find myself using more than 4-5 molds on any given course anyways. Usually I'll have a driver, mid, and putter I stick to depending on conditions. Of course if it's a particularly diverse course, that will probably change.

I just think it's a testament to a great disc if you can shoot a decent round with it solely. You won't break any records or personal bests, but still fun!

I use discs that I want to learn better, discs that I want to compare, discs that I enjoy.
There is a short technical course in the area that I like to one disc on. I've used at least a dozen different discs there. The champion in my comparisons has been an R-Pro Polecat. Darts are good, and a DGA Tremor did surprisingly well the one time I used it.
