Default Disc specific question

I've got a "well broken in 150g Champ Leo". Thinking about trying one in DX or Pro. Wondering what weight range I should be looking at to give me close to same stability as in my "well broken in 150g Champ"?

Even 175 DX might still be less stable. Champ plastic is very overstable compared to DX and Pro. Try a 170 Pro, but it will beat in eventually to be less stable.

yeah, I know. It took me several years to get this 150 dialed in.

I have a dx in the 140s and a pro at (I think) 170. You're welcome to them if you want them. $10 for both.

I used a couple of 165 champ leo's in my early days, and after losing one I got some ~170g DX and pro F2's to try out.

The pro's were all over the place. One was about the same as the champ and stayed that way for months; three years later it is finally flying like DX. The other two were way more stable at first, but seemed to change dramatically in flight after each hit on an obstacle, and were eventually lost or given away. For pro, seems that softer plastic=less stable, but more consistent wear, and harder blends=more stable at first, but wear out faster. I like the softer ones that feel a lot like star and have a moderate dome. Seems more dome=more predictable flight pattern for me.

Even with a noodle arm, the DX were noticeably less stable, and they went into the storage bin after test throwing. I only recently found the ability to control those and now I can't play without one like it in the bag, they are the perfect US fairway driver for me. I do prefer a worn pro over a DX though because they take hits way better.

Honestly try a Latitude 64 Diamond, same kind of disc with crazy glide. opto plastic is a little more stable than Goldline plastic but either way it's a really great disc.

A very used (you said years...) disc will always be understable, no matter what plastic. My guess is that even a 150g DX Leopard will be more stable than you old one. Initially. The thing about DX plastic is that it beats in much faster.

I'd say that your DX Leo will take as many months to beat in as your champ Leo took years.
