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.

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.
