My 150-class Champ Vikings are pretty flippy, only slightly more HSS that a Valk with similar straightness at low speed.

I would like to find something really overstable in the 150's that is smooth out of the hand. I've heard that Boss's at the low weights are ridiculously overstable.

i have a 157 qolf and a 152 solf that i flick all the time.

I flick 150 Ch. Firebird for longer shots & 150 Ch. Banshee for shorter ones. Both feel lovely coming out of the hand. 150 R-Pro Boss is pretty flippy, and the wide-rimmed newfangled drivers feel extremely weird in my hand on a flick.

No idea about the D/X 'Clones but the 150g TP 'Clones are FABULOUS.
Domey, stable, glidey, durable, long, controllable... I'm not really sure what esle you could possibly ask for; except for availability *groan*

I played half a round yesterday with only my 150g Superhero...It was a blast. I couldn't believe how far away I could straddle putt it from, and it was pretty easy to shape lines with from hyzer. It behaves somewhere in the middle between a golf disc and a frisbee stability and speed-wise. I'm trying to build my confidence with the disc to use it in a round because I know it could really round out my repertoire of shots, but it obviously takes a different throw than my other discs.

I have had this blue CE Leopard that has to be around 150. It is super light and flexible. I have to actually weigh it.
Anyway I always thought I would eventually trade it or sell it. Now I am keeping it.I took it out to the field and It is quite stable for how light it seems to be, it has a very nice "leopard" flight.
Glad it held onto it.
I don't have many other 150 discs other than the 150 sharks and leopards with no name and number I keep finding and giving away to beginners.
Destroyer,Sidewinder,Firebird,Eagles,Leopard, Roc, Mako, S Wizard.

Sometimes I wonder why that Frisbee is getting bigger then it hits me.

Has the definition of 150 class officially changed to fit the Japan Open's own regulations (and if so could I get a reference)? From what I understand 150 class still means discs that can't weigh more than 150g, only Japan Open allows discs up to 159.9g.

I have been wondering how S-line 150g PD's fly. Because if those are not too understable when thrown really hard I could buy one for specialty shots/for distance shots.

Nope. 150-class is still 150-class. The contrived class invented to placate disgruntled American Japan Open players (and disc manufacturers who had trouble consistently molding hi-tch wide-rimmed drivers down to 150g) is known as 150 Open class.

I have a DGR 150 S PD and it is just a little longer than 168 S PDs. Turned over it keeps the height way better and gains a lot of distance as long as there is enough height for the disc to flex back to fade. It keeps anhyzers better than 160s or full weights. 168s are a nice balance in flexing back and having some height keeping, when tilted. Full weights flex out faster and don't gain that much distance s-curved as 160s. Let alone 150s. Lighter discs lose momentum faster and in winds speed keeping means that a 168 is about as long as the 150. In other wind conditions the 150 will give better distance. You can put a lot of power into the 150 S PD.
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.

ok i will change my question. is there a solid preforming distance drive that is made in weights less then 160 that would fit with the fairway drivers i listed above.

has anyone thrown the 130 gateway drivers?

Of the 7 or 8 150 S-PDs I have all are quite stable except one, and it weighs 147, is rather bendy and has the Freak stamp. The two pale yellow First Runs are more stable than the stiff, champy-star, chartreuse regular stamp ones, which are bombers. I think they are the best 150 class drivers I've thrown.

Thanks for the information. I'm off to pester people who incorrectly use those terms.
