I stay right around 18 or so...

3 Halos (OS to US)
1 Giant (super OS; rarely used)
1 Champ Firebird
2 Rivals (Icon and Pinnacle; might decide on only one)
2 Escapes (Lucid and Bio)
1 River (light GL; flippy)
1 Suspect
2 Fugitives (Lucid and Bio - Bio has no fade, Lucid has small fade)
1 Fuse (for the late turn)
1 Drone (FLX; only used when the wind is big. Suspect handles most OS needs. Will test Tensor in it's place)
3 Pures (1 Zero Soft as main putter, 1 GL for anny approaches/drives, 1 Sparkle Opto for most approaches/drives)
1 SSS Magic (long putts - 45'+)

18 in my Karma (I like to give them space to stretch out a bit). I don't need that many for most courses, but I carry the same bag no matter the course unless I'm playing a putter round.

18-22 .....and I usually only throw around 5. I know right.....WTF?
It is nice to have what you need for specialty shots but I really do best when I throw what I know.

I carry 15 discs with me, my midranges overlap quite a bit but i love trying new discs and figuring out how to throw them, i go out and play by myself a lot of days and throw multiple shots just because it's fun throwing a different disc and watching it do its own thing even if i know i could of made the same shot with the last disc.

I voted 16-20. My casual round bag is actually when I max out on discs. I carry everything for casual rounds because sometimes I like to throw extras and try different lines and shots that I don't usually throw.

For tournaments I usually prepare the night before by going over the holes in my head and figuring out what I will throw for each shot, then taking out whatever discs I won't be using. My typical tournament bag consists of 9-15 discs, but sometimes I max out to 20 if it's a good course that requires all sorts of lines and shots.

The course I play has so many varied tee shots that I can't cover them with limited molds. Throw wind in there and I may throw a different disc off of ever tee. :lol:

I guess I carry 23.

1 P&A Aviar (putting)
3 KC Aviars (1x understable, 1 x stable, 1 x fades)
1 ESP Zone (overstable)

1 Prodigy M4 (understable)
3 KC Rocs (1x understable, 1 x stable, 1 x fades)
1 Roc3 (slightly overstable)
1 Z Buzzz (slightly overstable)
1 FLX Drone (overstable)

Star Leopard (understable)
Pro Leopard (fresh, still fades)
2 Star TL (1 x flex lines, 1 x fades)
Champ Teebird (slightly overstable)

Prodigy D4 (understable, flex lines)
Prodigy D3 (stable, hyzer lines)
S PD (fades)
Champ XCaliber (overstable, longer flicks, headwind)
Champ Firebird (mega overstable, shorter flicks, headwind)

Discraft Tracer (beat to hell, tomahawks, thumbers)

I probably throw 60-70% of them in a normal round. A typical rounds includes all of the putters and Rocs get used for long approaches upshots based on shot shape and distance. The rest are used based on shot shape and distance needed off of the tee.

I currently carry 19, however there are a few that are currently on the chopping block.
In the bag:
3 Wizards, 2-SS for putting, 1- Evo for approach and driving
3 Rocs, 2-KC, and 1-DX. One that fades left nicely, one straight, and one right.
2 Gators, 1-Champ Glow, and 1-Champ. The glow is way more OS than the champ.
4 Teebirds, 2-Champ, 1-Glow Champ, and 1-DX. Varying degrees of stability 50% of the time I drive with a Teebird. (I haven't thrown the DX since I picked up the Leopard, so it will be gone soon)
1 Leopard, Star. Straight shots when I doubt my Roc will get there.
2 Firebirds- Both Champ. 12x is majorly OS and the other is OS, but not as much. Short skip shots, spike hyzers, and overhand.
1 Roadrunner- Echo Star. Rollers and right finishing BH shots.
3 Destroyers- 2- Star (One AJ), 1- Echo Star- Varying levels of stability, I only throw these when I need more D than I can get with the Teebirds. I roll the Echo Star when I'm feelin froggy.
