Me? Pretty much all of the ones in the Denver area and north. Really only play the mountain courses (Bailey, Beaver Ranch, Wondervu, etc.) a couple of times a year.

I carry Speed 5's, 7's and 9's. I carry them all because you can get different line shapes out of all of them. But if you can get the same shape out of a speed 9 as a speed 7 then more power to you. I would be all on board with bumping molds out of my bag and carrying less molds but I can't a speed 9 disc to hold a line as long a speed 7.

Banshee, Eagle, TL? these are bread and butter stuff for me. I would give them up before coffee, beer, sex and Japanese cars, but not in any hurry. it's your choice, but it sorta makes you a horrible person

I looked no sevens here, got some 5's, the relay oddly enough is 6, then hop to a volt 8. Then insanity for 9 but I can drop the volt and get a 9 speed tesla to do the same thing as the volt as long as it's 5g lighter.

Depends how you stack your bag I guess. Seems like a necessary speed range. You can't just hop mids to 9's.. Unless you rock something like a 155 insanity.

I find control drivers and fairways to be pretty interchangeable. They're more a matter of preference than anything else really. I couldn't imagine my bag without Teebirds/Leopard type discs. But I also see how speed 7-9 really overlap a ton. That's pretty much why I don't carry Thunderbirds anymore. Too much overlap with Teebirds.

7 speeds are basically my only driver, 9's doesn't give me more distance when im maxing out at 100 meters. Things are simpler with a "noodle" arm.

Leopard3's have every stability covered ( for me ) right out of the box.

It doesn't even matter. Take a putter and a driver that you like (and a putting putter) and leave the rest at home. When you learn to crack the whip with your left arm, you can then start snapping different molds at different angles and see what happens. Bagging a massive bag just adds another variable when the release is inconsistent to begin with. So I guess my answer is: yes leave them all at home along with 95% of the rest of your discs.

I would argue it boils down to the course(s) you’re playing and if you throw both bh and fh. I use Eagles and Thunderbirds for most of my bh shots between 250-300 and there’s only a couple holes I would really miss the eagles. But I’m much more comfortable flicking eagles than thunderbirds in general so they have a permanent spot for that reason

Technically you only need two discs, but in reality you need extras. You need a spare of each because you'll throw one in the water, and you need a spare of each without your name and number in case you're throwing near children or windows.
