Prodigy runs those molds. Discmania has a similar naming structure. In my opinion it just makes it easier to make the mistake of using them all at once. Dave's advice of picking 1-2 molds is 100% correct for all players regardless of skill level.

As someone that has previously bagged all of them and now bags MD3 and keeps some MD4 in the closet for high wind I can tell you that it's not the same as cycling one mold. Not even close.

M1 and M2 are close enough that you would only pick one. M2 and M3 are the same. M4 is a bit of an outlier and the M5 is totally off the table in that selection process.

MD1 (disco), MD2, MD3, and MD4 are all similar. MD5 and MD are the outliers.

When picking one or two of these molds you should end up picking the one that is most reliable for you when brand new and most comfortable to throw. Hands, Grips, Power level are all different for each player. The mold lines are not designed to be used in sequential order for shot selection.

You are supposed to pick one and as it beats in, pick up a new one of the same mold. If you do that for 2 molds, you have 4 discs and 4 unique shot shapes.

Nothing has changed in comparison to Innova and Discraft. You pick 1-2 molds and you have 2-5 of them total in different stages of wear.

I like his point when he was reviewing the Ghost to buy 4-5 of the same run, color (optional) and weight and work through them that way.

Well i for one does not agree. . .i could never get a broken in Buzzz to fly like a Buzzz SS. . .and a really beat up Buzzz SS do not fly anything like a newer Archer. . .and even a "beat to hell" Drone does not fly anything close to a new Buzzz

So i need all four moulds

I'm not saying Dave is 'incorrect', but there's nothing wrong with have 3 molds (OS, Stable, US), if that's what works and makes one's DG game more enjoyable.

Supposed to? Sounds like you're giving us military orders. And i totally reject what you're saying. Cycle if you want, but it's not the only way to build a bag. And my objection is to you and those that say we have to do only that, that we're supposed to cycle one mold. How are you going to force me or anyone else to do that, hmm?

Way to take that completely out of context...do you have a martyr complex or something? Broom wasn't telling anybody to do anything...he was explaining cycling, not giving you a damn order. Good grief. You and Casey...I swear.

No. Feldberg's advice is not the ONLY way to build a bag. And that's the point I'm making: just because someone, even a pro, says something, doesn't make it right for all persons in all variations.

I did not take "You are supposed to..." out of context. That was a direct statement telling us what to do and that it's the ONLY way to do it.

And swear all you want. I am not Casey.

I've tried it both ways. I just ended up preferring one mold, pretty much for the same reasons that Dave explained.

Oh, and Feldberg>me
