Disc Golf Center has some Lucid Air Mavericks around 162 grams. Never thrown the mold but I’ve heard it flies like what you’re after

Got to looking around some more and they also have some Opto Air Rivers and 157ish Neutron Relays.

I can get a lot done with a couple relays.. Full haha bag could be a 155/7g a 165 and a cosmic 165.. Then a volt maybe but the cosmic does it. 155 relays are f###n cool$

Love to ThrowaEnvy too, damn I'm a sucker for a pun and shameless endorsement. Be curious how it works out.

I could seriously fill a bag with envy's and relays or possibly teslas... the 155's are nuts awesome. Span your weights and fill a bag. Crazy what you can do with an ultralight tesla. I know a real old dude here, throws polecats, leopards, stingrays etc.. Has a 145 (143?) that is insane, his tesla added 50-70' on his game. Personal results may vary. His first gyro..

I could do 3 and 3.. 3 envy maybe 4 and 3 drivers either relay or tesla and play to win.

Not valks, but both MSDG and Disc Golf Center have light OLFs. The ones I got from MS were early run zippertops.

Hero still has teebirds and banshees from the last JO (2011?).

I'd expect the sidewinders will beat in nicely. Similar, but slower, would be a JLS. Millennium pro shop has a stack of base and star x-outs currently.

Speaking of Millennium, I love the Polaris LS for controllable 7 to 8 speed. It's the longest disc for me when I'm forced to throw dead straight with no run-up.

Big thanks to everyone for all of the suggestions. Some of the discs I have tried in the past, and some might be worth a re-try. For other suggested discs I will need to do some research. Lots of promising options, so I hope at least one fits the slot.

Thanks again!

Received an order of VIP Air Hatchets and GL Orbit Diamonds today. Squeezed in a few tosses before it started to rain, mostly into a decent headwind.

159 VIP Air Hatchet: Really liked how this flew. Turned a bit into the headwind, but remained under control. With a little more hyzer it flipped to flat, finishing with a baby fade. Out of the box, the Air Hatchet flew just like the seasoned mid-160s Tournament Hatchets that I bagged for years, until I switched back to 150s drivers. This is exactly what I was looking for, so thanks to whoever recommended them (must have been a different thread).

Weather does not look promising for the next few days, but I can't wait to test these out on the course.

152 GL Orbit Diamond: These turned significantly into a headwind. Shocker, I know. Thinking these may be more understable than what I am looking for, but we shall see.

Looking forward to loading up my bag with understable fairway drivers to see which disc emerges victorious

25 pages and no mention of the Jade? I happily pair mine with a Sapphire. The Jade is thrown in calm and tail winds, both fh and bh, with a hyzer angle of both sides. The Sapphire is thrown when faced with light headwinds and when I want a harder fade. I still carry a couple of drivers in the 170's for blustery winds.
