Whats the consensus with 150g overstable discs in base plastic like eagles/teebirds etc.? Do they still retain their stability? Would they work thrown in to a headwind?

I'm currently going through a disc down phase and my putter throws are 225-250 mids 250-275 and drivers 300' avg throwing strictly stand still. Thinking of carrying one or two fairways in 150 class until i start to incorporate an x-step.

Yes, they still work for headwinds. Look for higher PLH of course.

I started throwing mainly 150 class this last winter to make up for throwing on snow and doing a lot of stand still throws. Now that the weather is warm and the footing is good, I've been enjoying throwing these with more power.

Firebirds will remain (over)stable at lighter weights, even in headwinds.

I have Champion Banshees in 150g and 165g weights. The 150g goes straighter for longer before fading than the 165g, and in headwinds does not fade as much as the 165g... in fact, the 150g Banshee might not fade much at all in a strong headwind: it acts more like a seasoned-in Teebird in calm conditions.

Others with more experience with Eagles hopefully will talk about them. As to Teebirds, I've found that lighter weight Teebirds may not be as overstable as their heavier weight brothers, and the more they're seasoned in, the more that's the case.

So if you are looking for a lightweight but still reliably-overstable disc, my suggestion is the Firebird.

150ish MVP Resistors definitely stay overstable.

Just when I thought I had my bag figured out I decide to try out 150 class drivers. Now Im thinking about testing out 150 class for every disc except putting putters. Which leads to my next question. What are you 150 fanatics throwing for mids? Im having a hard time finding any lighter weight mids.

DX And KC Rocs

DX Roc3s are nice in 150 class too.

Oh go on, take the full plunge and try a few 150 class putters too!

The 150 Aviar in the starter pack is quite stable. So is the beat to death Evo Wizard I tinker with every once in a while.
