Champion plastic generally holds up very well, but last weekend was my first experience with "gummy" Champion. I hope to bounce a few drives off trees next weekend, which should provide some insight into durability.

I have not thrown Helios, so I can’t compare plastics.


Well, I have no doubt that Champion Gummy will hold up much better than Snap's EGR gummy, which is really just low grade batches that they decided to market that way instead of rejecting them.

try a 150 s-pd. loads of fun.

a 150 firebird has to be cool.



i had to lay off the 150 stuff. it was messing up my timing with heavier discs, or vice versa. it may be better to go all or nothing with 150 weights.

150 Teebirds are amazing discs. I did not realize that they made 150 Champ Firebirds, so thanks for posting that (even though I am pretty happy with the 150 Champ Banshee).

Possibly. All of my drivers are 150s, but I throw 165 – 168 gram putters and may switch back to 160s for midranges (at least for FH). 150 drivers and 160s mids/putters “feel” similar when I throw them, probably because more of a driver’s weight is on the rim compared with putters and midranges.

i'm hoping the 150 firebirds will have a similar flight as my super beat star firebird that I have had for almost four years.

I got a new 150 dx shark the other day to play one disc games and work on my form with. This one is sooooo flat on top. It looks like my max weight star sharks in profile and feels (and so far is) a lot more durable than my other dx mids. Anyway, this disc is so nice for what I wanted but I am putting it in the bag too. The other domey 150 sharks I have are very understable no matter what, but I can throw this disc so far up a hill standing still and get anything from a strong hyzer up to probably 150' (that won't last long I know) to a s curve to a good long anhyzer. Made a lot more angles and was more shapeable with less height than any putter I have. This has definitely turned me on to keeping some lighter discs. I want to find a 150 champ shark now and also try a light roc and some others. I have a 150's eagle that rocks, its about dead though. ALmost all the short discs I throw are max weight and the longer discs are 162-170.

I put a 150 DX Shark (Dome) in my bag around Christmas. This has been the most fun, workable disc that I have found in a long time. I was looking for something that i could work left and right in tight areas at short distance that didn't have a lot of weight to it. I got this and more. If thrown on a hard hyzer it will flip up turn and fade out to about 200'. I use it to work around trees, on short approaches, and even long putts. I like htat it is so light that when it hits the ground on approach it doesnt even move the grass, it just stops. If the wind is blowing, I leave it in the truck.

Well, depends on what you are interested in I suppose... I wouldn't leave one on the ground but I wouldn't go sucking any one off for it either. Perhaps if we met in the middle around a 2010 innova xmas disc, or at most if yours is nice i might add or offer something else or cash.

I've never thrown a 150 before. Are they manageable enough to keep a couple 150 molds in the bag at all times? Obviously they'd be more susceptible to wind, and they'd require less power to throw which would make them good for shots in tight situations. Could I expect a lighter weight of say...an Eagle to fly farther than a heavier one?

The distance depends on a lot of things, but 150 class discs are definitely manageable enough to keep them full time. After all in Japan everything else is banned.

i've got my hands on a few 150 class 11x kc pro teebirds lately and am surprised at how stable they are for the weight. i'm not really sure where they will fit into my bag at the moment, but they are definitely fun to throw. i'm just getting into throwing s pds, a 150 class would be pretty sweet i would imagine.

I keep a 150 Champ Leopard and 150 DX Shark in my bag full time. They do require a hyzer flip to launch them, but the Shark at least is friendly at lower speeds working around objects. I have never checked the distance on the Leopard, but the Shark is good out to 200' for me. The Leopard I can finnese in the wind but the Shark stays in the bag with any wind stronger than a fart.

I was surprised how well the somewhat beat 150 class D-MD1s we used at Meresmaa's clinic flew. Didn't really seem much different from my regular weight D-MD1s. Plenty HSS with a good release.

I hear similar statements all the time.
"I was surprised how well the 150 class *insert disc name here* flew. Didn't really seem much different from my regular weight *insert disc name here*"

But that is, of course, assuming the thrower has decent technique.
