Pretty much everyone who gets remotely serious about disc golf goes thru that phase...






...and there are lots of guys who never get passed it, lol.

God, at the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 I purchased so many plastics..... Got a handle on it in order to get serious about my game though. Now I trade and buy used or new from other people not always retail.

IN 2008 when I started, I was flush with cash (not huge amounts, but enough to buy plastic) and began to buy discs by the lot off eBay. Ended up with over 100 used discs in 6 months.
I have slowed down a lot in the 10 years since, buying only what I throw and collectibles that I fancy.

My biggest lesson?
Learn how to throw. Put your efforts into form and consistency.
If you buy a disc because you can't throw, and you want a better result, the results are minor.
If you learn to throw properly, discs become somewhat less important.

To that end, I recommend the Technique and Strategy Forum and especially the Form Analisys and Critique Forum


My very favorite thread is the How to Build a Bag thread. I'm working through that now and wished I'd done it a long time ago.

Hope that helps!!

I don’t buy like 100 every year like I used to but still snag stuff that I think looks cool and backups sometimes more than I should responsibly.

Wait until you figure out your bag and starting wanting backups.

That's when stuff gets serious.

True that. I lost one today, and immediately went home and ordered two replacements. Got a call a few hours later from someone who found my disc...so now I have three for a slot in my bag that I probably don't even really need.
