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.

Im guessing that it's not going to be nearly as stable as you think.....

I picked up a 150g (scaled) Star Teebird. Played windy 9 with it only, sidearm, and was pleasantly surprised. T is what I wanted it to be, and now need to continue improving my forehand.

Thank you for feedback!

Yeah some of the Lighting discs are rather OS, they made a ROCX3 style disc in the #3 Hookshot years before Innova had the disc they made independently. Thing is if that is baseline, the disc will wear in quick in a season if not the stuff with the flecks and DuPont added as the flecks as that is more like a Pro/X plastic without the gloss.

Champ Banshees were available in the mid 140's for a bit. Good touch FH disc IMO.

Awesome! Glad you found one!

FYI, not that I think you'll need it but discs do exist lower. A friends daughter has a 120g DX Leopard.

They are definitely touchier. They can't handle as much power and are more susceptible to wind issues. But if thrown properly at the right times can get you more distance.
