I throw light (upper 150's) drivers for open shots where I am more concerned with distance than accuracy- primarily D2's in 400g. I still throw upper 160's for most of my drivers and fairways and low to mid 170's for putters and mids. I feel like my timing is a bit better with the heavier stuff but the lighter stuff definitely goes farther.

I feel attacked personally

I've actually started throwing paper plates. They fly half a mile and are biodegradable if you get the uncoated ones. My post-round BBQ sort of seeps through though

If I'm attacking then my self masochistic side just came out. The only reason I'm on this website is to waste time at work.

Moral of the story is that lightweight discs, be they putters, mids, or drivers, can have some advantages for some people.
I know, I use a 166 gram #2 upshot prostlye for flick putts/short flick shots discovered by accident as well as a uphill/dowhill putter. Can now do a flick putt with my main putters as well. Not as good with my approach disc but that is another story.

Then I use a 150 gram only DX Dragon as a tailwind open at least 90% from trees and other things to hit bomber or calm same conditions on really long shots since I can use the lightweight to get long distance. I also have the disc for the main use as well.

If you want light, I'd recommend photons; but that Heisenberg thing makes them hard to find.

I used to bag a 150 class Valkyrie for tailwind drives but it rarely saw flight

Came here to say this. Light weight stuff (and not just fission) from MVP/axiom is amazing.

156-159 MVP Relay has been a distance miracle for this old timer.
