Ah, gotcha. Of the discs in your sig, DGC has MOLF, SOLF, and 1.1 QOLF at 150. I have not seen the XS at 150, but Champ Vikings (Innova Factory Store) are supposed to be similar, and 150 Valkyries and Sidewinders are widely available.

For fairway drivers, 150 Eagles, Teebirds, and Leopards are available in most plastics.

I've got a few questions about 150 class discs. I found 150 class Valkyries (Star and Champ) that were absolutely flat. I compared their PLH to a 175 Star Valk, which was relatively flat but had more dome, and the PLH was the same between all of the discs. Has anyone had experience with flat, high PLH Valks like this?

Also, would you guys recommend Star or Champ for a 150 class Teebird? The Champs I've seen were all gummy. Is that good or bad?

I'll be interested to see how these fly compared to the upcoming Star-Lite versions.

Who knows how the Starlites work? Gumminess can be good or bad depending on what you like. A gummy disc will bend on impacts absorbing speed in the flexing motion so it won't kick as far in tree hits and should skip less than a hard disc. Your choice. I haven't seen flat Valks.
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.

I just recently got a 150 Blizzard Wraith, OMG does this bomb with no effort.....so much glide and so straight. 450' never seemed so easy, but I wouldn't throw this disc in a sizeable headwind. I've not really given the 150 class of discs a fair shot, but I've never really had a need (read as: not getting "older", don't have injuries, and I don't live in Japan).
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

Played three rounds rounds this week and used a 150 dx roc for all my drives. Once I stopped trying to crush it I easily got it up to 380 with almost no effort. I've had this 150 roc in my bag for years but never really took the time to drive with it. I just didn't think a 150 roc would Hold a line. Man was I wrong. I'm definitely going to rebuild my bag around 150s.

Longer and a little more turning than a 150 Star TB.

I too like the 150 SOLF. Once I beat it in some it gives me a nice "S". I just picked up a 1.7 161 SOLS that for some reason is really long. It has just a little more dome than my 1.5 164 SOLS but it has quite a bit more glide. Has anyone else tried the 1.7 SOLS in lower weights?? I'm going to have to get a couple more to see if they are all like that.

The Avenger is pretty close to those so i'd try the lighter SOLSs that Steady likes. I haven't tried those i had an older 168 MOLS that broke in to too flippy soon at my power.

Anyone wanting a couple 150 1.1 sof's let me know. I have a couple I could be talked out of in exchange for tournament funds.

I have a 164 1.7 SOLS. It is white / light green and very stiff. It does have a lot of glide but I don't have any of the earlier runs to compare it to.

I have a 150 Star Teebird and 150 Champ Teebird. The Star has a lot of turn. The Champ is straight and and long... great disc.

150g pearly 11x Teebird might be the best disc Innova has ever produced, IMHO. The green ones are particularly money, but orange and blue are OK, too.
