Casey, buddy... the op asked for a stable disc (which the Dragon is not) in a weight around 130g (not 150g). Your comment was completely coherent and to the point. However, it didn't answer the op's question at all.

I am not sure I would go as low as 130. I have tried a couple of discs at that weight, and they were pretty squirrely. Also, absolutely useless in any breeze. I love lighter weight stuff, as an old guy, but I think the sweet spot is around 150-160. IMO.

I understood what he meant. I have tried less stable Beast and Maverick, but the more stable discs work more reliably for my sidearm.

Well tomorrow I’m looking for a 150 class Teebird. If I don’t find that I’ll probably keep using the 150g Getaway ( 9 | 5 |-.5 | 3) when necessary.

^^This is probably spot on, but ymmv.

I haven't thrown that many light weight discs, but my experience with blizzard drivers leads me to believe that there is more stability variation in the light weights than in the 170 class. Most of the light blizzards were ridiculously flippy on a full power throw, but there were a couple that were surprisingly stable. I had a 145 destroyer that absolutely bombed [for me]. None of the backups flew anything like that one.

See what's available and go from there?

Are lighter weights more challenging to throw smoothly? My forehand is still quacking like a duck, but slowly getting better.

I was giving a easy option should a disc as low as 130 grams can't be found and yest the disc is more near neutral. It is just due to how finicky the 150 gram DX Dragon model is , is why the mold is viewed as not more near Neutral. The Word they used is Piss Poor. does the OP they mean the Disc is stable as in neutral stand in? Is the disc they want OS as in Man this disc is stable to mean it goes hard left at end? Or Do they mean stable to be, the Disc is holding its line? The last meaning is the route I use for stable.

My bad for not being clear. I want the lightest disc possible that will beat into zero turn and plenty of fade for 250’ throws (if I can throw sidearm that far).

So I found on eBay *sigh, I know* the Lightning brand #1Hyzer that is available in 130g class. Then did some searching here on DGCR and not sure that’s a ‘good’ brand. That disc looks like a meat hook, according to flight chart drawings. But it might be fine for flex lines, I suppose. I can’t find really any review or info about that mold, so I’m leery. I’ll check the shelves today first.
