Default Why do you buy plastic?

Just curious as to what drives people to purchase new plastic.

Previously, lots of trying new discs to see how they fly. But after a couple of decades the bag is pretty well settled and I mostly buy backups.

Because I need to get better and this one, particular disc is going to be how I reach that hole.

But mainly, just for backups now. Honestly, I should stop, my bag balloons but always comes back down to Myth/Comet/Stable Driver. And I got plenty of Myths and Comets.

I'm pretty much here. I have enough plastic, and I my technique is sufficiently flawed and my game so settled into its place that no mold/disc is really going change that.

At this point, my outright purchases might amount to 1-2 a year, and that's just for if I find something I really like in just the right mold, weight, plastic and color.

New players will see this and think Rodeo is the one to listen to then they will listen to him and injure themselves.

And it will be your fault.
