I agree with your thinking on new plastic. I own a duplicate of almost every disc I like. I only carry the duplicates in 3 conditions: 1) For serious practice rounds if I throw a Roc approach poorly, I can try again with the same disc. 2) For tournaments I carry every disc I own in case I lose one. This gives me confidence of not worrying about losing a disc. Yes, I have a huge tournament bag. 3) I bring it to doubles, and if I get picked to play Kali, I bring the duplicates so I can take the second shot with the same disc, sometimes.
