Mine is 173 I think, and it is very understable. I, personally, wouldn't touch a 150s Orbital unless you're brand new to the game or are learning to throw with your off-hand or something like that.

I will eventually pick up a 150's Orbital, just for pure enjoyment. It's already a fun disc to throw. I think one that light might do barrel rolls.

I was wrong about the Orbital. As someone in another thread mentioned, he gave it to his girlfriend, and she threw it well.

I said it was not the disc for everyone. But the opposite is true. It IS the disc for ALL of us. New, young, experienced, pro, male, female...we can all find a great use for a disc like this.

Kudos to the Bros once again for this gem of a mold.

In your experience throwing this disc, what experimentation have you conducted to conclude that the Orbital is a disc for a pro?

Tried rolling at it but it cut rolled. I suck at rollers though.

Seeing Mike throw this would be pretty useless.

Maaaaaaybe as a roller. Or something from a standstill/get out of trouble perspective. More likely that a pro will have zero use for this.

You're the one who has MVP banging at your door. I'm sure you know how a pro could use a nice understable disc.
