I had that same wood grained 1st run ascent. I love the looks of them but couldn't find it in the middle of the fairway...camouflage. I traded it a couple months ago.

Ascent 174 is my goto FW driver in the wind. RHBH throws on dog leg left setups that range out around 300 feet this disc does me well. Great sidearm disc too very predictable flight.

I carried an Ascent for awhile and I had it dialed in. A little turn, strong fade, it was in the 150's, early run. Then it went into a tree and stayed there for almost a year before she ended up in the lost bin. She didn't change, but I did.

Anybody ever throw a 150 class Ascent?

I was wondering if it had the same stability and wind fighting ability as a 170 gram one.

I've thrown a 163g Ascent. It kept its over stability for about a half a year before it started to wear straight.

I'd say they're pretty similar. Both my 156 and 171 Firms started beefy, but got straighter after a month or two. I was actually pleasantly surprised how well the 156 did. I'm not sure I'd feel too comfy with either if the wind was more than a gentle gust though.

If I had to go with one over the other I'd give the nod to a heavier Ascent, they're a lot easier to find and replace when you want a fresh beefier Ascent.
