I rarely change my discs for the course, but I also don't change elevation. I have a Zuca transit cart. When I play tournaments, I will add a small bag on the bottom with back ups in case I lose a disc during the round. I also put a buckhorn bin with a full complement of back ups in my car in case I need to replace a disc in between rounds.

My bag stays the same, but I do add in backups just in case.

I also never throw a disc i dont have at least 50 throws with. Its just too tempting to say, "hmmm...let's see what this bad boy can do! Oh ****, I'm OB!"

Elevation does have me but everything up or down in stability. Use my comet way more in the mountains, and my buzz at lower elevation.

I agree with that. I test discs out in the field or in practice rounds. I never have a disc in my bag for a tournament unless I am comfortable with it.

That's interesting. I switched out my DGA Rift (5/4/-1/1.5) for a Discraft Buzzz (5/4/-1/1.5). But I hadn't thought about switching out to the Comet (4/5/-2/1) for higher elevations.

My normal mids in my bag are Comet, buzz, wasp, jokeri. When I go up to the mountains, my comet becomes my buzz, my buzz becomes my wasp, I drop the wasp, and the Jokeri becomes my OS disc.

I just played my highest elevation course a couple of weeks ago, it was at 10,500' for reference. My Comet would only anny if I throw it hard and on a 45-degree angle. I could not get the buzz to move for the life of me. I really struggled to adjust. Then I came home, 4,800', and things were back to normal.
