The oldest disc I got bagged is a 1.8 year old Champion Firebird . There is nothing currently in my bag that's older than that, I had to switch up my weights for tournaments in my area a little over a year ago.

This mold and plastic also has the longest tenure in the bag as well. I got a beat max weight 11x and Champ Firebird I throw in the bag sometimes for practice rounds, it's the oldest disc I still have around. I'm much more likely to lose a disc than kick one out for being too old and broken-in.

When I started playing I picked up a 3 disc set from Gotta Go Gotta Throw. The stratus is warped enough that you get dizzy looking at it...but it turns great! Had it for 15-16 years. I suppose when it finally bites it I'll have to learn to throw forehand.

Jeebus, the newest disc in my bag is older than a lot of the oldest discs in this thread!

I'm still throwing most of the stuff I bought in the 1990s, RAM, Leopard, Stratus, 78 Mold, etc. I did switch from SE Rhyno to Star Dart a couple of years ago, so those are the newest, but everything else is 15+ years old.

I guess my oldest bagged disc is my 78 mold, probably from '94 or so. My go-to driver is a red SE Leopard from maybe 2000-2001.

I have four from 2011 when I started:

-a Z Buzzz which is no longer flat and has hit two aces
-a Medium Wizard which still has its bead, my first Wizard
-a Soft opaque proton Ion "Stormtrooper"
-a Champ Rhyno that dates back to when I played casually and was purchased used pre-2011 "Zipper-top"

I had a blue dx cobra that I bought in 1996 when I first played with a buddy in college. I didn't get hooked at first and the disc sat basically unused in my closet for over a decade until I started playing again in the late 2000s. I sadly lost it in 2012 or so, otherwise it'd still be in my bag. Great disc. Oldest currently in my bag is a max weight star firebird I bought in 2009, and which scored my one and only career ace. Still as beefy as ever.

Both my most beat Teebird and JK Aviar went in my bag in early 09, they both do things a stock 'Bird or JK would never dream of doing.

I have a roc and a wizard in my bag that have been in there 6 or 7 years. I still have the aviar, Teebird and Valkyrie I bought 12 years ago but I don't bag them anymore. They make great loaner discs for beginners though.
