I started out doing the same thing. Then I found out that the difference in weights (I.E. swapping from a 150 Gazelle from my drive to an upshot with my 175 Comet) really messed with my release. I was releasing late on the 150 stuff and the fatties were coming out early.

My solution was to go all 150. Even putters... but those fatties lasted the longest in my bag.

You'd be suprised how much action a disc like the comet gets out there, too. I know I was!

I am liking taking out 150s to compliment my low 160 ish drivers. Windy? Go 160. Confidence problem? 150 to the rescue!

I have light XD that is just a miracle worker in woodsy approaches. Magic time!

And the lighter discs keep my arm safer ( I feel they do ), especially when I try some crazy overhanded fun.

Does anyone else vocalize when they throw? "jed----eyyyyyyeeeee!" or "super-man!" seem like favorites... :lol:

Spinners on the Green, down in Scottsdale has an entire 150 section. I can't wait to go down there and try to replicate my entire bag. I think the only one I'll have problems with is my wizard and I'll probably just get a magnet in that spot.

Ask and ye shall receive...

FWIW, I would nod the 150 Aviar P'n'A over the Magnet. The Aviar for me is a shorter TB and feels waaay comfier in my hand.

Oh no! I didn't know Marshall street had a 150 section...this could be so bad...it's just so easy to press add to cart!

I love those Eco Wizards, they smell like Maple Syrup.

My new 12x Champ Firebird is exactly what I wanted it to be. The wind wasn't too high today so I'll have to reserve my judgement on that aspect but everything else is spot on. It felt super predictable right out of the box.
Also, this is the disc I go to for my rollers (so far). It is much slower about flipping up to vertical and then leaning into the dome side than other, less overstable discs.

Thanks for the recommendatin, BU.

I need to get my hands on a 150 firechicken. I've got a 170g in super over stable spot but I never seem to get much D out of it.

Break in a 150 Star TB to straight and watch it go and go straight if you have the speed to get it going without starting to drop quickly. Until about 85-90 % of the way. And with about 330'+ of D the fade is gonna be about a foot with a skip depending on the ground on a 7-8' high line drive.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Time for me to dip into the 150g pool. I've never driven with anything under 166g. I was at my local disc-ery today and found a 150 class DX Starfire. I scanned this whole topic and saw no mention of 150g Starfires. Are these new?

150 starfires have been out for a while. I have a friend who uses it for her overstable driver.
This is unbelievable disc that acts like space ship. -lovetodg-

I had one... I only got 3 throws with it before someone took it*.

I remember it being particularly sensitive about OAT... more than I would have expected considering its overstability. I also remember it not going too much further than my 150 TBs; on similar distancey type lines, TBs= 380ish, SF= 390ish.




*Long story behind this one.

RE: Starfire.... I am infinitely happier with my QOLF and MOLF, BTW.

Thanks. I got it mostly just to experiment with 150 class stuff and it was the best i saw at the store (Starfire or Archangel? Hmmm....). If I see any promise in it I'll expand out into better discs.
