Default 150 Class bag for Japan suggestions???

I'm moving to Japan this spring, which means I'm trying to replace my mostly max weight bag with 150 class equivalents. So far I've found some 158 champ firebirds and teebirds, but I'm stuck on finding something similar to my drone and buzz. I'm not really concerned about high speed drivers as much as I am about the overstable and stable mids. I am also looking for mids and putters in a durable plastic, which is exponentially difficult. I really dislike the idea of throwing dx or another company's equivalent, especially for my beefy mid discs. Anyone else has some advice or recommendations for mids and putters? Anyone have personal experience playing in Japan? Thanks

I swear I saw a thread about 150 gators on herodisc, I would suggest looking there even though it's not discraft they have a nice selection of discs that are still stable at lightweights.

That's a pretty great site for sure. Thanks for the reference. I guess what I'm wondering is how tightly chained to the Innova family am I going to be. Not that I mind too much, but it's nice to have options. Luckily, I at least know that gateway does their Wizards in the 150s

I've thrown a 150 Z Hornet and found it very, very, overstable. I'm not a huge fan of the disc because it's very overstable but has lots of space under the disc to get knocked around with its large glide, but other have had different opinions and love the disc.

No other experience here with non-base plastic mids/putters. I do like my DX 150 Rhyno though.

Also, I don't have time to pull up the links right now, but check out the 150 class thread over at DGR, Monocacy and Masnhut's threads on DGCR regarding this.

All Vibram molds come in 150 plastic (minus possibly the recently released 0-Lace).

Gators down to 133g

Super Stingray or CMD2 sound pretty Buzzz-like from some quick googling of people looking for a similar disc. Lat 64 Core as well

Thanks for the link, but I've been burned by those guys way more than I've been hooked up. CMD2 looks promising though. I'm just unsure how it flies at such a low weight. I'll probably go with a few discs that are the most stable and work my way down the stability ladder.

This is not a helpful post so much as curious, but why does the move necessitate a change in disk weight? Something with the courses there, or altitude, or just the idea of getting them there being easier if they way less?

I know you said you don't want the equivalent in a different company...but the Gateway demon in s and e plastic can be bought in the 120g-160g range. It will handle the overstable duties.

Japanese "safety" regulations as I understand it.
