I haven't been playing long, but I feel like I've tried a fair amount of brands.
Innova*
Discraft*
Dynamic Discs*
Westside*
MVP/Axiom
Discmania*
Lat. 64*
Gateway
Infinite Discs*
Kastaplast
Legacy
Yikun

There are discs I like from each of these brands, but as far as plastic goes, the Kastaplast is my favorite, hands down. The K2 plastic is amazing. I just had a custom dyed Kaxe Z come in in the K2 and I'm very excited to throw it.

I've thrown discs from the following

Innova
Discraft
MVP/Axiom/Streamline

I started with Innova discs and used them mainly for a good amount of time. I've only really thrown 1 Discraft disc much and that was the Buzzz. I found the Ion and that started me down the MVP/Axiom/Streamline road. Found I just like the feel of the plastics they use and my bag has slowly become more MVP/Axiom/Streamline over the last few years.

I'm the minority. My answer is 2. I have my own unique reasons. The second brand I tried I fell in love with for multiple reasons. I'm sticking with them. Right wrong or other. That's just me.

I throw MVP family discs. I worked (until recently) in the plastic injection industry in the Midwest. They are a Midwest company. It's kind of like supporting my brethren. Also, being in the plastic industry, I greatly appreciate certain quality aspects of plastics. The way MVP pulls off overmolds is very impressive. The quality is awesome. That's not easy to get right consistently. The consistency is great. Some "bigger name" manufacturers QC drives me insane. Those are my unique reasons.

Also, their discs do everything I could want and more. I started my love affair with an ion. Snowballed from there. I love their plastics. I have no need to look elsewhere.

[QUOTE=Stable;3535578]Innova - started playing in Eastern NC in 2003. Innova ruled the region & that's all I knew for a long while. Dunipace knows how to make great molds & Innova will always have a place in my bag/cart.

Discraft - got into DC in the late 2000's with the Buzzz & Stalker. If it's not broke don't try to fix it. I was born in MI & I like that they're made there.

MVP - The Resistor was the first MVP I tried. I liked that they're made in MI & was looking for an OS fairway. I love this mold but am using beefy Teebirds in that spot for the moment. Could go back to Resistors. In general, I don't like the feel of overmold for BH's but it's all good for FH.

Prodigy - I've only used their putters. PA4 & PA1 are sensational.

Kastaplast - I fondled a Berg during some downtime at a B-Tier a few years ago & haven't looked back. The only non-US manufacturered disc I use. It's crazy that another bigger company didn't design it first. It's just so useful.

I have no interest in Trilogy.

Bold I have no interest in Dynamic Disc, the others Latitude 64 and a few from Westside I might try if I can use a mostly new version of the disc from somebody. Reason is feeling the same plastic from two brands in the same area and one from the other they feel different as if Dynamic Disc ended up with the lesser plastic pellets almost as if Dynamic Disc has to take what they can get in the discs being headquarters are so far from the manufacturing.

I still haven't found a suitable replacement for my 10mm Brick (turbo putt) disc yet...
That is the craziest looking thing I've ever seen. I've heard of the disc before but never would've dreamed it looked like that.

I've dabbled in enough brands to realize I didn't need to spend so much money dabbling in other brands, but, I wouldn't have figured that out if I hadn't dabbled in many brands!

At my level of "suck", one brand is pretty much all I really need.
