If the manufacturers would quit making good looking discs it would be easier for me to quit buying.

I've bought less discs since I bought a Golden Retriever. Now I can pull a couple of random discs pretty much when I want and can see how those fly. And the unclaimed ones are starting to stack up.

...but when I do buy, it is usually either to replace a lost disc or just to see how something flies.

You really need an "All of the above" option. I did vote for the most common reason for me being that I want to try new molds and see how they fly.

Are you saying I have a problem? I don't have a problem! Today I bought my last disc. I'll quit tomorrow.

I don't see any problem. Maybe YOU are the one with a problem.

Good thing about being a procrastinator is you always have something to do tomorrow.

Pretty much only backups. Bags been settled for a while. I don’t feel comfortable throwing a disc I only have one of, so I usually buy two or three at a time.

I set the poll so people could select multiples, figured people buy plastic for several reasons.

“Bag” is a funny way of spelling “soul”
