MVP 150 class discs - how are they flying?

Was looking at a 154 Proton Inertia, and was wondering if the lighter weight discs have the same flight characteristics as the 170's brethren.

I have a 158 Neutron Inertia (only MVP disc I have) that I picked up recently and I was surprised how US it is - especially for my noodle arm. On ~300' throws it is more US than my 155 sidewinders. Go figure...

150's can be quite a bit more beginner friendly when on the understable side of the MVP lineup. the OS to stable models don't really get affected as much it seems-- some slight differences in glide for sure.

Its an inertia so its supposed to be that understable. My 150 MVPs are just a tick less stable compared to their heavier counterparts for the most part.

They fly nice. I regularly drive with 165 Envy's that never flip on me, and I bag a 156g Crave that I throw BH and FH on hyzers all the time without issue. I love that Crave for when I can't get a run up or even a full reach back, and want a consistent straight to fade shot.

I have a 155 Inertia I'm going to bring with me next time I do field work. It's fun to throw on open shots.

I have a 150's Inertia, and a 174 tester. They both fly pretty similarly for my arm, but the lighter one is easier to get D from, and it's got a bit less stability, like gcr russell said.

With the Inertia, any weight is a good weight. Especially for normal arms.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

I just thought of this video, where I'm throwing the Tesla for the first time. One of the holes is 440' I think, and I throw a 155, 166 and 165. You can see they fly pretty true to the ratings, but the 155 definitely had a longer left to right drift.

Thanks for the replies - that vid really shows the difference 10 grams can make.

I'm guessing at my power it would fly just like it should.

Cool thing about MVP is if you like a certain mold you can carry three of the same disc at 150's-160's-170's and get different variations of the intended flight characteristics. I have three Resistors in each and they are a great fairway trio.

QFT here. I prefer my 156 gram Motion because I can really mash on it, but it is just as overstable as its max weight counterparts. Overhands and skip shots are a little more unpredictable at that weight, but I don't use those type of shots too much anyway.
