I bought a Z Hornet once in max weight, but I eventually settled decided on an FLX Drone instead. Discraft is supposedly going to release a finalized run of their Z-Lite plastic this month. Weather or not that means they'll have something besides drivers is yet to be known. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Z-lite Zone or Drone.

If you were ok with the Hornet (sounds like not though) they are available in 150 class in Z.

I have seen 150 Sirius Sentinel MF in 150 class weights too, you might want to give one of those a try.

The only hornets I'm finding are 150 grams, which is lighter than I'm willing to go. It appears that the Z-Lite release is only drivers for now, which is a bit of a disappointment.

Most of the Sirius Sentinels I see are right at 150g too. Think you may have to hope they run the Verdict in air next year. You even going to be there next year?

Yep, I'll be here for another two full seasons so we will see. It seems like new lightweight version of discs are trickling in from various companies. There are some special releases here that have yet to be released in the states, but they're not easily obtainable. I got to give props to Vibram for carrying all their discs, including 4 different putters, in lightweight rubber. There aren't many durable putters on the lightweight market.

I think your best hope is that Vibram makes a OS mid as their next release. Looks like the chances are pretty good too.

That'd be fine by me. Is that what the word from the testers is?

I couldn't go back to sleep this morning so I did a little searching. You're right, its hard to find some discs in the 155-159 range. The only candidate I found on discgolfcenter.com for overstable midrange is the Vibram Obex, which it rates as a 5/5/0/3.

Yes, it's not a very hipster weight range. I thought about trying a Obex, but I don't think it's different enough than the Truth to warrent a try.

dx whippets are excellent over stable midrange/fairway/utility disc.
