Disc weight vs. plastic type

So I was wondering, at what point does weight trump the plastic type? In other words at what weight does a champ leopard become less stable than dx disc? Example: Is a 150 champ leopard less stable than a 165 dx leopard?

Also, has anyone noticed a big difference stability wise when comparing blizzard to starlite?

baseline plastics will always become less stable no matter the weight.

Different molds respond to weight changes in regards to stability as well where some 150 class fly nearly identical to heavy runs they are just easier to get up to speed but also can be harder to control or more "touchy"

Weight will not ever really trump plastic type but discs of the same plastic and different weights could fly slightly different with the heavy ones generally being more OS.

You wont really find a 150 class premium plastic disc that is less stable than a baseline one IMO--especially with any use.

Premium plastics by nature have less glide and are "faster" thus making them stable compared to a baseline disc and hold that stability.
