You guys are crazy. I mean that in the most positive sense. Of course we cant even get most of those in Finland.

Discraft - lots
Innova - lots
DGA - Tsunami, Pipeline
Legacy - Rival, Patriot
Gateway - Wizard, Element
MVP - Relay, Ion
Axiom - one Envy
Lat64 - one Pure

Notable absences are Dynamic Discs, Westside. I'm tempted to go do an inventory by brand. I'm sure 85-90% of my discs are Discraft or Innova.

Innova way too many to list
Gateway Wizard and Element X
Discraft too many too list. Most were trying the disc after tournaments as the discs in Z and ESP back in 2000's were nicely designed for putting a logo on without having to wipe the stamp.
Latitude 64 Sinus and XXX, Mace/whatever is the shallow Wizard like putter.
Wham-O old Touchline series, had a undertable for a number of years that was a tad soft then tried a few years ago the beginner set my brother won at a tournament, giving the putter to my mom for a winter version of the Classic Grid Aviar and getting rid of the other two.
Aerobie the Arrow, a Cousin has one for wind and cliff type putting as the mold as like a 0.5 in glide. I tried to putt with the disc.
InStep older set of the Mercury putter only passable, Saturn Midrange a Comet dome on a ROC wing would have been good if the disc did not , and the garbage Pluto driver about a 8-9 speed odd disc.
Quest AT I tried a old plastic 10 Meter Brick from a person who faked he was a friend, the local sports store sold those discs for a year along side the Innova/Millenium discs but I never bought the Quest AT discs. That guy liked the 10 Meter Brick until he had shattered 2 discs on the same hole, temps were only 40 F in mid fall. I think the poor plastic and gimmick discs is why the Quest discs were not liked and are still not liked.
Discwing I tired the Quarter K, a different guy used the mold for a bit till the disc wore down in a year. when the Destroyer came out, it was nearly the same wing. I liked the mold in flight just not the plastic.
Dynamic Disc yes the putter that is like a Wizard.. Judge? Yes I tried a friends in the Classic Hard Burst.
DGA I tried the Blowfly and Gumput they were a friends discs, the Titanic in Proline that is in my bag currently.

Curently I have mostly Innova and Discraft/DGA in my bag with the single Lighting #2 Upshot in Prostyle.
Somebody reminded me of Ching. I used my dads Juju a few times, too tall in the height to really use for me. Shame as the Supreme plastic was nice for a putter, a premium putter plastic that was soft enough to grip the chains really well, not just okay the way some like Big Z or G-Star are.

13 or 14. The Surprise is I have not used of the older brands that were around in the 2000's is Millennium.

So you have used Wham-O then with the older Touchline sets or this new begginer only set or the Wham-O MaxFlight?

You have used the older Insteap set with the Mercury putter, the Saturn midrange and Pluto driver? Yes Pluto was considered a planet back then when the set first came out.

Those sets or discs are mass produced by the boatload by these companies. The older Touchline series from Wham-O was good, this new set looks like it is just for begginers. They Still make the MaxFlight though as I think DTW makes the discs, not sure on that. The Instep older style are still made by the company though a newer set, the ESP Instep is better.

Pluto is that yellow Disney dog. I think he had a green collar. I think he was a golden retriever but like a mid 1950's to 1960's golden retriever not like a early 2000's to 2010's golden retriever which is actually a disc retrieval device. Same Pluto yellow color but it's not actually a dog. It comes with a rope, not string like the earlier models in the mid 2000's. I've used the Pluto's to retrieve many of my errant #2 Upshots from scummy ponds but less scummy than they were in the mid 2010's. This is the reason why I throw XT DX's in the old but more stiff, softest I've felt mid 2000's run. You should try a #2 Upshot if you haven't yet. Pretty popular mold but only in the new du pont style pro plastic.

Innova - started playing in Eastern NC in 2003. Innova ruled the region & that's all I knew for a long while. Dunipace knows how to make great molds & Innova will always have a place in my bag/cart.

Discraft - got into DC in the late 2000's with the Buzzz & Stalker. If it's not broke don't try to fix it. I was born in MI & I like that they're made there.

MVP - The Resistor was the first MVP I tried. I liked that they're made in MI & was looking for an OS fairway. I love this mold but am using beefy Teebirds in that spot for the moment. Could go back to Resistors. In general, I don't like the feel of overmold for BH's but it's all good for FH.

Prodigy - I've only used their putters. PA4 & PA1 are sensational.

Kastaplast - I fondled a Berg during some downtime at a B-Tier a few years ago & haven't looked back. The only non-US manufacturered disc I use. It's crazy that another bigger company didn't design it first. It's just so useful.

I have no interest in Trilogy at all.

After almost 20 years of playing, I've tried most brands and they're (basically) all the same.
I still haven't found a suitable replacement for my 10mm Brick (turbo putt) disc yet...
