Default What Discs have you bought Multiples of?

During the discussion about throwing multiple molds versus throwing cycles of fewer molds, I realized that one reason I don't like cycles is that I have to buy more discs. That got me thinking about which discs I've actually purchased multiples of (more than 2, with the goal of 1) having discs at different stages or wear or 2) having adequate replacements)

I haven't found very many molds that I fell in love with to the point that I want to find identical replacements. I've bought a few ESP Surges with good consistency, and a few Star Beasts which haven't been quite as consistent. Other than that, I haven't really focused on finding replacements for most discs, including Buzzz's and Comets, which I have tons of. I'm not counting putting putters, which I also have multiples of for practice and so that I can rotate them in and out of the bag.

So, what molds have you purchased more than 2 of, specifically trying to cycle discs or have similar replacements? I'm expecting plenty of Teebird, Destroyer, and Roc folks. Overall, I'm just curious where we DGCR folks put our money when it comes to cycling/replacing discs, as opposed to a theoretical discussion about whether it's better to minimize molds.

I currently own more than 5 of the following
Yeti Aviar
Wizard
Rhyno
Roc - 10+
Comet
Eagle
Gazelle
Teebird
Orc

All of these are my bread and butter and what I use to compare any new disc I try against.

I'm not disappointed in buying a back up, I have a stash already and nothing makes me happier than finding that perfect Eagle or Roc to add to my core holdings. I feel far more confident buying what I know than trying something and finding out it sucks (Cough "Trilogy fairways" cough). Doesn't mean I won't try something new, I'm just not as excited as I once was.

Back in the day i bought two S-TB penned Teebirds from a local shop because I wanted a backup. Ended up being the greatest decision ever as between the two of them most shots between 250-350 were covered for 6 years. One of them now lives at the bottom of Lake Michigan, which is my saddest disc loss, and the other is the flippy teebird in my cycle of Teebirds that I have mostly acquired used.

Other discs I've intentionally bought multiples of for the purposes of cycling or replacing include Rocs, EMac Truths, Wizards (Stiff Super Soft for throwing putters), Wraiths, and a fresh sidewinder to accompany the one in my bag that got flippy. I also replace and cycle out Firebirds when the one in my bag gets too flippy, but only carry one at a time.

Usually, I don't buy multiple new discs at once. Instead I trade molds of discs I have either found or tried and not fallen in love with to accrue more discs of molds I know that I throw. I then take them out in the field and figure out where each one slots in the cycle. Cycling is much less work when you buy at least some of the discs used. I own at least 8 Teebirds and will bag up to 4. If I lost any one of them within the cycle I've got a similar enough one to replace it with. Same boat with Wraiths, as I probably own 8 or 9 of them in varying ware, too.

I've got three DX sharks coming in the mail so I can give cycling a shot. Hey, if that doesn't work out, at least I'll be able to get more reps in.

My question is, how can a player have truly productive field work without multiples of at least their key molds? I strongly believe most improvements come on the practice range, not on the course. Practice with mixed bag = mixed feedback = mixed results.

And many others but those spring to mind.

I've been playing less than 18 months, and have already purchased 4 Volts (three Fission & one Neutron). I also have 3 Wardens, with the intention to get more for practice.
