I use 150 class for my drivers, and try to get star or regular champion whenever I can. I have stocked up on the ones that I like. I will say that Blizzard is usually the worst. The Air Escapes and Hatchets I have found have been great.

Yeah totally. I wish they were still running the Air Stags though. Man, those things were the best. I'll hold out hope that they will run them again but I'm not holding my breath. I'm down to one good one left. The Escapes are good but they're not as magical as the Stags. The new improved Lucid Air plastic feels really nice but I have not thrown one yet.

Legacy Skyline is also seems promising. I've got a 157 Cannon that flat out bombs. The durability of the Skyline seems really good. Mine is seasoning in super well. They did a limited run of the Skyline Outlaws and I wish I would have gotten my hands on a few of those. Hopefully those will become a real thing before too long.

I’m starting an experiment: I’ve purchased every axiom Driver from the Clash to the Virus in 156g.
Background: 50 yo./300# I throw a 165g Nova 240 on flat ground. I can throw a 172g Matrix 270. I have a 172g Vanish that goes about 320 straight with fade and a 172g Insanity that will go 290 straight with fade.
Working Theory: I have good form, but slow rotation due to weight and age. 156 will yield distances over 300 with flight paths that match the Advanced to FPO (not the distance, just the flight path), so that a fireball will go 270+ straight with gentle slow speed fade and the Virus will go 330+ turn all the way to the ground when thrown flat.

The gyro supposedly keeps the stability of the platonic weight of the mold. The discs arrive Tuesday, so I should have a report by Saturday.

MVP 150s are by far the best. I've yet to see any other manufacturer's 150s hold up well. MVP still holds up like the max weight counterparts.

picked up a new air Flow. 151 real grippy and can't see the bubbles in the rim. it is beefier then any flow I have thrown over the years. A star fire is the closest thing i can compare it to flight wise. might make the bag for fh work.

I feel like my domey Air Renegades are more stable than a lot of the regular weight Renegades I have thrown. I carry three Air Renegades, and a metal flake 163 Lucid Renegade and an Air Trespass for something more OS.

As others have said, new Blizzard plastic is just awful. Completely unpredictable and nothing like the older run stuff. I used to throw first run Blizzard Wraiths and first run Blizzard Bosses and they were amazing. They were very similar to their heavier counterparts, but again those were the ones with bubbles in the plate, not the rim. Since then trilogy air plastic has been the most consistent.

I've also thrown the Trilogy's "Easy to Use" discs. While not AIR plastic, the DD Breakout and Lat64 Jade are decently stable 150 class fliers that wear nicely...
Right on Beener - Jade is an amazing disc for a 150 class disc.
