I carry 16 in my Gateway Players Bag, but half of that is putters. Aside from just loving putters, they do serve different purposes. I use 3 Eraser Magics for inside the circle. RFF Wizard for approaches, Eraser Wizard for approaches and short drives, and a seasoned SS Wizard for drives. A medium Summit for my "almost Magic" in the woods, and a medium Ridge for my "almost Wizard" in the woods.

My philosophy is to carry 7 discs. But I'm carrying 13-14.

The 7 are not model-specific, but are
- very overstable driver
- slightly overstable driver
- slightly understable driver
- very understable driver
- overstable midrange
- understable midrange
- putter

I'm not model-specific, especially on drivers, as it doesn't make a whole lot of difference to me which ones I use in a given category. If my "slightly overstable driver" gets lost or beat in to understable or just falls out of my favor, I'll find an entirely different disc in that category that suits me.

I carry a larger bag in part to carry more liquid. I carry multiple discs of different models in some of these categories for several reasons

- I frequently play a course with great lost-disc potential.
- In tournaments, I want to be able to replace a key disc if lost, even where losses are unlikely.
- In playing casual, sometimes I want to take a 2nd or 3rd shot on a hole, particularly the first hole, and need some overlap.
- I'm trying out something new along with my tried-&-true.
- I have 2 putters. I use them in different putting situations, though it's not necessary. It's also more convenient for practice putting.

I only carry one each of the discs in my sig, in my bag. I like to travel light! The only time that I will carry more is if I am going to play a course with alot of water.

In my main "serious" round bag I carry 20-25 discs. Some multiples. I also use a 5-6 disc bag for casual rounds.

I usually carry nine discs on the course. I often get by with seven. I carry another twenty in the truck just in case I wish to swap out or in case of a loss.

I carry about 18-20 discs on most rounds currently. I had an arm injury a couple years back and have found it's better for me if I try to rotate my shots (forehand, backhand, roller, overhand) so I use more of a variety of shots than a course requires. It generally doesn't help my score, but it lets me continue to play. I fill my Silverback to add weight to the bag to help burn fat. If just trying to play a quick round at some local 9 holer, I just pull two discs and carry them. It'll be some form of APX/Wizard/Buzzz/Element/Cyclone combo depending on length and wind.

I used to go into a crunch bag but for most local rounds it's unneccessary. If I go "course collecting" I may bring my Crunch Box and pack into it as the day goes on. I just cut down on the duplicates.

Here's the specific today. It'll change a little by the end of the year, but just adding an out of the box understable fairway and some kind of distance driver for backhands. Just not there yet since I took 6 months off to see if I could heal completely. So far, so good.

2 APX, 2 Wizards, 1 Sinus
1 Element, 3 Buzzzes, 1 Warrior
1 Sabre, 4 Cyclones, 2 Talons, 1 Flick

Exactly 20 in my Innova Deluxe.

My FH Favorites: *Destroyer, Opto Flow, FAF Champ FB, 2 *FLs

For BH: Blizzard Krait, TP Boatman, N Shock, Opto Saint, GL Saint, VIP Stag, 2 *TBs, GL River, VIP Underworld.

Mids: GL Pain, TP Warship, N Tangent

Putters: HPP Wizard, RFF Magic

It might be slight overkill, but I feel like I'm prepared to take on anything with those discs.
