Meh. It is all a personal preference. I think mold minimization is counterproductive. It generally requires cycling discs, to various stages of wear. This is a variable added and the lost disc becomes a major issue, at times. I will throw a caveat out, because many molds now have a handful or better of plastic variations. [ I can throw a Putter Line Zone, an ESP Zone, a Flex ESP Zone, a Z Zone, a Metal Flake Zone and a Glow Z Zone...all having a progressive stability sliding scale] I would much rather find a disc, for a slot in my bag and replace it when the wear starts to significantly impact the flight. There are enough molds now that every flight is covered. Yeah, yeah....I know, your perfectly season ROC cannot be duplicated. Sorry, not buying it. Just different schools of thought.Necro bump:
For the old DGR heads, Blake (from what Dan Beto said) put 8 as the max molds one should use.
Personally, I think 10 is the max one should use, and this includes speciality/utility discs. There might be some overlap with other discs, but they serve a purpose.
I think the centerpiece to each speed category should be based around a stable disc. Once the stable disc is settled up on, match accordingly to preference.
For example, here's my setup:
Stable- Wraith or Trace (thinking about going back to Wraith)
Stable to understable- Squall
I find this setup a balance between the two views. It's not too crazy with the molds, each mold can be learned and thrown on different angles creating less confusion, they can be easily replaced if lost, you have a particular shot if needed without having to go through cycling, and the stages of wear might have greater separation due to their stabilities.
