I'm kind of curious what Brother Dave may have bought over last 6 years in 150 class...

In my bag 158 N Crave, 143 fission Photon, 155 N Wave, 155 Inertia. If I remember right the Inertia was MVPs first 150 offering and it solidified them as my manufacturer.
Yup, I have a thoroughly thrashed yellow Star Wedge. It’s a fun disc.

I threw an all 150g bag for 6 years. There was a lot of experimentation, but things settle down towards the end of that period. The final lineup was:
Aviar PandA (3 DX and 1 Star)
Rhyno (2 DX)
Roc (3 DX in various stages, 1 KC, sometimes a Champ)
Leopard (DX for understable, Star for more evenly stable)
Eagle X (DX, Champ, and Star. Love my eagles)
QOLF
Firebird (Champ)
I don’t very often throw anything faster than that… but I carried a faster driver for certain courses
Boss (Blizzard and or R-Pro)

And the Dart would definitely make it into the bag. I think I can justify sliding it in between the Aviars and the Rhyno.

At some point I’d love to make a video explaining all this and showing some sample shots. 150 class has a reputation for being only for under-powered throwers; I would love to make progress towards debunking that myth!

Well alright then... just wanted to make sure you hadn't missed anything awesome.

How about the 150 weight MVP /Axiom have you tried any of those?

I threw a 150 class Inertia and Impulse. The Inertia was a nice disc, the impulse was pretty unpredictable. The Impulse was very finicky and nose angle sensitive and with just a breath of wind, I never knew where it was going.

!50 class Star Sidewinders and Orcs are nice too! So are Air Escapes.

Nope, but I need to! It’s on my to do list… I keep doing tons of stamps for MVP but for some reason my payment never includes 150 class discs

Sidewinders were in the bag for a long time. The Star SW is the easiest disc to throw 300’ I’ve ever thrown. Assuming there’s no wind hahaha

You mean there are different rules for 150 class?!

All this time, I never had a clue.
I guess that does merit it's own thread.

Shhhhhhh not so loud! 150 class is it's own silent sub-culture.

We want our own tour. Maybe Steve Dodge will help us out

Watch the Japan Open. ?2015?. At the time, 150 class was max Island wide for safety reaspns.
I think its lifted now, but not for sure
