Default Multi Purpose Disc

If you had to play a entire course with just one disc which one would you pick and why?

A stable putter bc they can cover nearly any shot needed from 5' to 300'+.

I (and many here) have done this at our local courses i would assume more than once. I keep a stable putter in both vehicles for this purpose lol.

Same, s line p2 for me. Still can manage putting with it, but can hold pretty much any line I need. If you want someone not to say putter, pro line gremlins coming of the shelf lol since I never throw it and it’s money for pretty much everything but putting.

I just asked because ive heard that a lot of the old timers used to use just one or two disc to play,compared to todays players that carry a backpack full of disc.

Back in the day a 5,000' course was a monster. The only water hazards you ran across were creeks where you could retrieve your disc. Nobody flicked. You could throw a Roc and an Aviar and never wish you had anything else.

Those days are gone. The holes are longer. The courses are better and require more shots. Playing most courses now with one disc is unrealistic and would be no fun. If I had to play with one disc, I'd quit.

There are some old threads with similar questions and answers; you can do a search for them.

But to answer your question here, I'd choose a disc that I can putt with but would also give me some distance on throws off the tee and from the fairway. In the past, that one disc for me would be the Mako3 or the Panther, but today I might consider the new S-Blend TOMB from Infinite Discs.

Edited to add: I would vastly prefer a 2-disc round, with one putter to putt with and the other disc for everything else.

As usual, Three Putt is right on point. Although I don't think I'd score too much worse with just an Axis, or maybe a Relay.
