My go-to Firebird is a beat CE that's been in my bag since 2006 or so. Honestly it doesn't fly that differently than a slightly beat color glow Firebird or maybe a Raptor, but there's something special about a disc that you've been throwing for almost 15 years.

I don't baby it or really protect it. I've lost it at least twice and had it returned.

I've only written "$ Reward" on the bottom of two discs, as I'd really want them back if lost. Star Teebird and a JK Aviar that are a matching orange and are just perfection.

I just lost the chewed up Soft Harp that had been in my bag the last two years. Ugliest disc I've ever owned, but I still feel lost without it.

Most irreplaceable for me is a 167 X-Out Moonshine River that's been in my bag the last 3 years. Flippy and glidey as hell. I don't have much of a distance forehand, but I can release this on a hyzer and get late turn, James Conrad-style. I once lost it on a temp course for six months, and was lost without it. It turned up in the lost and found when they had another tournament later that year, and it's been in my bag ever since.

I've got a 400 M2 I've had in the bag for about 3 year with a sharpied on Radiohead bear.

In the first half a year throwing it, it got right into that sweet spot where it gained like 20 ft, kept all the HSS and lost just a little bit of the fade, but not a lot. And it's held in that sweet spot for the last 2.5 years miraculously, I'd be lost on tunnel shots without it.

A beat up Z Predator. I bagged an ace with it in 2010 and it was a few years old then.

Z plastic is almost indestructible, and takes SOOOOOOOOOOO long to really beat in. I can use this predator for most overstable duties still, but flies quite a big straighter than when new. I don't think it's changed much in the last 5-6 years though. I dread losing it, but I think it flies similar enough to a 1R Undertaker, overstable Vulture or a Raptor where I could replace it. It's by far my favorite control driver I've carried.

Nothing else in the bag comes to mind as not being able to replace.

Found an old Sandstrom Valk at the used rack in the DD store that has a Corn stalk sharpied on the back that is referred as "Corn Valk".
Probably my favorite disc I'vei ever owned, extremely flippy but throws the best turnover drives ever. I don't have anything that has even a remotely close flight to that one.

I try to not grow too much attachment to discs. If I had to pick one it would probably be a pink lucid pre Sweden truth. It’s in the bag as the US mid, but I have a couple others that could take its place. I’ll also be sad if I get through my small stack of FR Z Undertakers. Like previously stated, though, Z in bullet proof.

Otherwise I try to throw mostly stock.

I play so many travel rounds with a 4-5 disc bag that I have gotten fairly flexible on certain things. Having said that my beat up concave Stego is completely unique even among Stegos and it would be hard to play some courses without it now that I’ve acclimated.

Nothing is “irreplaceable,” but there are discs at the worn end of my cycles that are very dear, and would take some grieving to get past. Mostly rocs, a proto D1, and some Firebirds.
