I was just passing on information from various pros who comment on how they keep they bag (and backup bag) ready to go for tournament play and how important it was for them to have similar discs ready to go so they can have confidence in the disc if they lose a disc, etc, etc.
One Azalea Fest tourney, Brian Schweberger drove down to Castle Hayne after accidentally leaving his bag at home. He literally walked around the course with a handful of random discs from his trunk. I think he was in 4th place after the 1st round before he found somebody that would lend him a bag and some more familiar discs.

Have any of you? I certainly haven't.
No but I have got the exact same putter in color and weight that makes me think the discs were from the same run. I got two Champion Shark 3 same weight written on back that are same color and stamps are nearly the same color one being midnight Navy other just Navy making me think the molds are from the same run of disc in my bag. Also when getting my backup Impact discs 2-3 are the same color and Stamp at the right weight set to make me think they were from the very final ever Impact discs made where they were white with the University of Wisconsin Red. Some of the other Impact discs make me think the run is not the same as the rest due to the unique colors of the Stamp or how the stamp was not on very well on another. Stalker non flight number Backups I got by mistake thinking the Stalker was going oop some are from the same run as they have the same micro scarring to the disc from the molding process for all but one or two from at least a different stamping day as the stamp has a spot where the disc did not get stamped properly due to pealing.

So yeah on an occasion you can get discs online that are from the same run of discs especially if you buy more then one disc at a time.

When I first started playing I was buying every kind of disc that I could get my hands on and before I knew it I had 18 discs in the bag that were all different.Now I have learned to just use what I like and not think i have to buy everything i see

This is like telling a joke and not the punchline. How did he finish in the tourney?

If I remember the year correctly, he finished 3rd behind Justin Jernigan and some guy named Michael Johansen.

It's not uncommon for super hip players to ask me what discs I throw after hitting a juicy fairway line. They almost always look disgusted when I say just a plain old dx teebird.

Simple orderly bags are the only way to go

after playing long enough, you eventually realize that all discs pretty much fly the same.

And to expand this logic...
Throwing a different disc or brand won't make you a great disc golfer.
You still have to hit the line no matter what disc or brand you throw.
