The 150g Dart is tough to beat... but the Colt is giving it a run for its money
A Dart is like a small diameter Aero and less flippy more a true stable neutral at least that is the disc closest to a Dart I have seen from Innova.

I played a round to compare my new 150g DX Colt to my new 150g DX Dart. Drives, approaches, and putts were all thrown with both discs.

There’s a ton to love about both discs but the Dart was clearly my preference of the two.

Assessing the round’s results reminded me of a concept that had dimmed after going back to my max weight bag: 150g discs make it so easy to surgically dissect a heavily wooded course!

So, I’m thinking of picking up a Star Firebird in the 150’s for longish flex shots. Will the 150’s in Star plastic still be as overstable as a FB is supposed to be? I don’t want to buy it and then find out that the lighter weight takes away from its overstability. I’m trying to get forehand flexes out to about 250’.

I've have two (I56gr star / 155gr champion) and they are still firebirds. You'll have to get used to the weight difference, but the lighter firebirds are really fun to throw. Very easy to manipulate in the woods too.

Fantastic! This is exactly the kind of insight I was looking for.

I use 150class drivers (got a lot of miles on this worn out body).

I use dx firebirds in 150 and some of my Saints are air Saints.

But my favorite is 150 class QOLF, great discs. Have a stack of 10 or so backups sitting on the shelf.

Hey have you ever thrown a 150 Wedge? I got one for the kid.. She's 16 now and never took Discgolf up but that Star wedge is pretty sweet...

I'm kind of curious what Brother Dave may have bought over last 6 years in 150 class...

In my bag 158 N Crave, 143 fission Photon, 155 N Wave, 155 Inertia. If I remember right the Inertia was MVPs first 150 offering and it solidified them as my manufacturer.
