Default Has the number of molds you throw increased or decreased over time?

Curious to hear if the number of molds people bag has increased or decreased over time.

Personally, I've recently had a bit of an uptick in the number of molds I bag. I'd still characterize my lineup as fairly lean, but I've become more comfortable with bagging a mold for a specialized purpose. For example, the Proxy recently made the bag for its ability to hit straight tunnel shots. Even if I don't use it for anything else, it still will seem like a key link in the cog, however supporting the role it plays.

What are ya'll's thoughts?

Decreased bigtime for me. I used to have about 15+ different molds in my bag, premium plastic, so no duplicates/cycling involved. Now it's 10, and 4 are putters.

Decreased for me. I mostly because I've had discs beat in to fill slots that they wouldn't have before, and replacing other molds. E.g. I don't have a tern in my bag because I beat up a destroyer that hits the lines I used to use a tern for.

Definitely increased even though I'm not sure it's a good thing. I LOVE trying new discs and love to put something fun and new in the bag. It's harder for me mentally to remove a long time favorite from the bag. I need to make a rule that every time a disc goes in the main bag one comes out...

Mine went up for the first several years I played, then went down for a few years, now it's stayed pretty much the same for a few years.

Obviously there was an initial increase as I was learning the game, but once I got to the large sized bags, the number of molds I use has stayed fairly consistent.

The question is a little problematic. I imagine that most folks started with 1 or 2 or 3 discs. Then their mold count when up. Whether it has turned around and gone back down after reaching whatever maximum is, I think, the more useful question.

I started with 3 (DGA starter set), probably maxed out at 15 or 16, and has settled back down to 10-12 molds most of the time. Although sometimes I go play Zephyr or Roc only, so 1.

Something I've never done, and cannot ever see me doing is, carrying two of the same mold in the same plastic.
