Who throws 150 class discs?
 
Who throws 150 class discs? and why? I used to throw stuff in the mid 170's and now throw stuff in the mid 160s and really like the way the discs flies and I seem to have better control and am wondering if going to a 150 class discs might be even better. I do agree that the lesser weight discs are little less for giving on things like OAT and other flaws during the throw but onces you have ever working the right way, i think the lower weight discs are better.

I carry a 150 flick for those really windy days.

Almost from the very beginning I used a Champion 150g Leopard. Over 4 years later and its still in my bag.

I use a 150g Star Teebird for pretty much all BH drives. I don't have much power and I find that I have better success with a lighter disc. For FH drives (most of my drives) I use something in the 165-170 range.

I started using 150g drivers when I broke my shoulder. It's surprising how trimming 20-25g off the weight lessens the pain of throwing for me.

I love throwing lighter discs for backhand annys. I was never really good at that shot, and used to just rely on sidearms. But I picked up a 150 class candy pro Leopard and it's very controllable and easy to turn over. It's also a great get out of trouble disc for sidearms. Just the other day I was in a middle of a tree and had to stretch out on a knee to get a look. I was about 200 feet away from the basket. I flicked the Leopard at about 50% power and it went like a lazer beam straight to the basket.

I know BradC huks a 150-class Teebird. I've toyed around with the idea to be able to flip the bajeezus out of a disc.

I throw a few 150 class:

150 R-Pro Boss for max D... not recommended in headwind, good for tailwinds when beat.
150 Storm for extra glide and distance on hiphill lies and longer midrange control shots.
Used to have a 150 DX Leopard for sweeping turnovers...lost it and got a 160 DX Lep for same.

I find 150 class are nice for extra D while allowing you to throttle down to gain a bit of control, but I don't like them in crosswinds.

I used to have numerous 150g+ Z Flicks, but I have reduced that done to 1 for emergency shots. I also have a 154g R-Pro Polecat that I love to throw for fun.

However, if the new Blizzard discs live up to the hype of maintaining their stability despite the significant reduced weight, I could see myself starting to carry more of these.

I've just started throwing a 150g Gummy Pro Leopard for LHBH drives and like the way it flies. I don't normally throw Leo's because i've never been able to get them to come out of my hand consistently. But something about this one seems to prevent the "spraying" action I've seen from other Leo's.
I've collected quite a few 150-class in different molds and experiment with them occasionally
