Just turned 47 and i feel like it΄s time to try some lower weight drivers, maybe try the WAVE/PHOTON kombo in mid 150s.

But i΄m curius what the lower weight controldrivers give you, distance or control?
I feel like i can stay with my +170g fairways and just switch my distance drivers to mid 150s, or should i look for controldrivers in the mid 150s as well?

Hey there youngster! If you can get Photon up to speed (I can't) I would expect Wave/Photon to cover a lot of shots, especially in different plastics and different states of wear.

For me lower weight yields more distance and less strain on my shoulder (beat up from years of swimming and water polo).

Lower weights do get knocked around more by the wind, and do require clean form. But a stable disc, thrown cleanly, still flies stable at light weights.

Some discs do mold up differently at light weights, but stability can go either way. I have heard of everything from super-overstable 150 Star Destroyers to super-flippy 150 R-Pro Bosses.

I seem to get thrown off more than most by weight variation, but many folks can switch weights without problems. Also, some folks carry the same driver in different weights to achieve different flights.

You'll probably have to try it yourself to answer your question. But hey, trying discs is fun!

I didn't read this entire thread, so this may have been discussed. But have you tried a Leopard3?

I have not tried a Leopard3. Threw a Pro Leopard for a while but I'm pretty happy with the Star TL + Plasma Insanity fairway combo.

What is it you like about the Leopard3?

I'm a big TL and TL3 fan, also. I never gelled with the Leopard, but the Leopard3 is flatter and feels better in my hand. At first I didn't prefer the Leopard3 over the TL, but in the last year or so the Leopard3 really grew on me. It has a little bit more turn than a TL, but the Champion and Hannah Leatherman Star Leo3s are not flippy understable like the River can become. It just 'works' for me.

If you're happy with the TL, then no rush to get a Leopard3. But if you get a chance to try a Leo3, see how you like it.

Diamond is fun to toss. And it will definitely let you know if your form gets off kilter.
