This is straight from innova's site. I guess, if you say so.

Starlite is a process similar to Blizzard. Like Blizzard, Starlite provides lighter weight drivers designed for a wider range of players. We've released a small test run of Starlite Roadrunners that are making their way to Innova distributors right now. Contact your local dealers for exact delivery dates.

To refute groundless and pointless posts such as this one, Dave Dunipace set the record straight with this post on PDGA board:

"Always good to ask the source. I heard on Discgolfcoursereview yesterday that we were discontinuing Blizzard. Just a troll, but people were buying into it.
Thanks for the question. It helps to straighten out the disinformation that people come up with, for whatever reason."

To the OP....if you are looking for new Blizzard discs, I would advise you to check out Latitude 64 Opto Air instead. They use bubble technology just like Innova, however the bubbles are pumped towards the center of the rim which makes them more durable. I have Innova Blizzard discs with chunks broken out of the sides from normal use, because there are so many bubbles at the edge of the rim that they burst and break apart easily.

The Opto Air ones look and feel just like regular Opto and their durability is equivalent to regular Opto. If you are looking for something really understable, I would suggest a Westside VIP Air King or a Latitude 64 Opto Air Bolt. If you are looking for something slightly more overstable, I would suggest a Latitude 64 Opto Air Halo. If you want something even more overstable, I would suggest a Westside VIP Air Giant.

If you throw lower than 150g though, you won't really find any that low in this line.
