Probably depends on the types of courses you play and where. If you're playing open courses in Kansas, then maybe you have a point.
My personal experience is to keep my mids and putters at max weight or close to it. I never plan on going 150 for those molds in my bag. Drivers and fairways I use 150 class but still have some heavier ones also in the bag.

I put a ~127g Beach Flyer in my bag a couple months ago just for some blast from the past nostalgia. Wrist snap approaches were so easy but oh the humor when I tried to drive with it.

I rarely carry a large bag now and I simply do not have room in my Crunchbox for super class discs (they fit but they take up too much room).

You would have to go with the 50/50 garbage Blizzard Champion as you never know and it seems light Champion has been gone for a while. Star Lite is what they call the lightweight Star under 160 grams I would think and under 138 grams the plastic floats. I thought Star Lite is OOP? They still make or can still find R-Pro light plastic just called R-Pro for a few of the discs that were Drivers/fairway made in such a plastic and a few of the 150 and under discs float in water outside of the Whaoo and Hydra. Also the DX Dragon an around 150 gram disc is an R-DX in that it is as durable as DX but since the last few years in 2018, the plastic has been like the more grip runs of R-Pro. The Dragon mold flies like an easier to flip Valkyrie due in part to weight and distance is about the same as a DX Dragon is light.

It looks like Discraft is going to produce Z Lite discs again. The 2020 flight chart shows the original molds that were run in Z Lite plus the Nuke OS and Crank SS being available.

A 130 something Nuke OS might be an interesting disc to try.

Nothing new really, got a 155 Relay out of the box it's like the sweet spot my 165 was at.. Real straight with a hint of fade.. I didn't know it would still be a straight pusher, I think I expected flippy.ish.

My 150 GStar Shrykes are 50’ to 100’ longer than anything I’ve thrown. Rarely windy here in the summer, so they’re getting a workout. I resisted the lighter weights for way too long!
