Default 13 disc bag limit...

Ok so i am new to disc golf but am very familiar with the concept of minimal carry for strategic and tactical reasons. So i am surprised that disc golf has no
disc limit for tourney play. I would think that the disc companies would be totally behind this as it would place much greater importance on specific discs
as opposed to just carrying everything you own with you all the time. Having to agonizingly choose which disc is the last slot in your bag, or which mids you
really need.

Sooo... to the POINT!

Lets just say there is a theoretical limit to discs of 13 discs, what discs would you carry with you? What 13 discs, putters, mids, and drivers, would you carry?

I throw a lot of discraft so my list would be something like this...

Nuke OS
Nuke
Nuke SS
Crush
Stalker
Predator
Zombee
Drone
Wasp
Buzzz
Buzzz SS
Zone
Challenger

Some have said that the limit should be 14 discs just like Golf(ball) has 14 clubs. I don't think we need to follow that sport as our sport is a lot different. If some guy thinks having 15 Destroyers in his bag helps him then good for him, one of the best local players in our area uses 2 sometimes 3 discs for an entire tournament and wins by 5-10 strokes.

I only use about 8-10 these days depending on the course.

Star Wedge
Elite X Buzzz
Test Run Vision
Gold Line Vision
Elite X Avenger
Elite Z Avenger
Star Vulcan
Elite Z Nuke OS

I've just never seen any sport, game, or activity where you have the option of carrying everything with
you all the time for competition. For me it actually makes the game more fun, when I have to select what I want to bring with me. Plus like I said before it really makes disc versatility and selection more important. I would think the disc makers would be pushing this through the PDGA.

Why would the Disc Companies push want to push that through? It makes more sense to have no limit so people have to buy more discs.
