Default One disc, two questions

You're only allowed to use one disc for a round.

1. What is it? Please explain your reasoning
2. If this disc is so useful for everything, do you actually bag it and use it, or do you have other discs that do each thing a little better?



1. DX Shark. This was my first disc, and I still like the feel of it. I can putt with it, I can throw it on predictable lines without too much effort, and I can get a little more distance with it than I can with my zone.

2. I don't bag a shark. While I really like it as a do-everything sort of disc, I prefer my zone and sol for approaches and I prefer my buzzz and drone (or verdict) combo for midrange. It's funny, I started with a shark and aviar, I added a heat... and then got sucked into the black hole of disc collection. I really like the discs I use right now, but this question got me thinking, "Am I actually any better off with all of these discs than I was when I only played with a few molds?"

Our club started a 1disc weekly. I have been using a champ Spider. I can get it safely to 300'. It's great for upshots and decent for putting. I lost to a FB last week. It was fun to watch dude hit 50' putts with the beef.

If your one disc round disc isnt a putter, you are not getting everything out of your putter.

It depends on the wind, weather, terrain, length of course, elevation, tree density, competition... Fortunately, I do not have to limit myself to one disc.

That being said, our club has a yearly One Disc Challenge. We get a Discraft disc each year and have used everything from a fairway driver to a putter. Ultimately, they all work out just fine, because everyone is using the same disc. The concept and competition is kind of dumb, in my opinion. Unless you are practicing play with a particular disc in your bag. I just have no urge to play the game with one disc.

A fresh Tank because there's nothing it can't do.

I usually only bag a more beat up Tank, and use a beat Jokeri for the slot a fresh one would be in.

My dyemax DD Marshal. I can push it out there decently far (for me). If I get it a little nose up it flies pretty stable but I can also get it nose down and turn it over with a flat finish. Putts well. Flicks well on aproaches.

I play one disc rounds *all* the time, more often than with a full bag. I typically use an Envy or a Proxy. Both are in my full bag

I would generally agree except:
1. my "putter" is a rattler. Actual throws with this disc are very different than all of my other discs. And because I like how it flies, I'm not too keen on trying to blast through trees with it.
2. my other putters aren't really true putters either. They are tweeners (the zone and the sol).

Do you guys just play a round on the actual course after an ace race? I always wanted to do that but after the 50ish holes and the games afterwards, everyone I'm with wants to call it a day.

1. Pink Panther.

2. I bag the Pink Panther. I used to answer this one-disc question with the Mako3, which I don't have in my bag because it overlaps with other molds that I use for different shots.

Side note: I respectfully disagree with whoever above said (in so many words) that it has to be a putter. I've come to learn that I don't like driving with a putter. Not that I can't, but I don't like to. Also, I never throw my putting putter, and I usually don't putt with a throwing putter or anything else. So no, I would not choose a putter for a one-dics round.
