My primary driver is a 154 Westside Air King. This thing bombs.....for me. Of course, you cannot find them right now.

I hope so, too, although I do not plan to change my screen name.

Yup, still loving the Hex. Lost one on the trip throwing a sidearm too low on a downhill ace run hole with the basket just past a smallish but surprisingly deep and steep-banked creek. With plenty of Hex back-ups I was not willing to go wading in barely-above-freezing water.

Just saying if you got money to burn take a few more steps and come further over to the Dark(rim) side!
I do have a couple of light Fission Waves (153 and 157), and I had just taken them out of the closet to give them another shot for exactly the purpose you mentioned. Great minds, eh? Or maybe similarly warped minds . . .

Yeah man, we really do throw the same bag.. More or less.
I don't think you have any of mine, I've still got those 3 mono plasma waves I'm hoping they fit better again this summer, but my DD is the 158 cosmic n insanity right now.

Hmmmm Envocacy? Mo-Envy? MEnvy? MonocrackEnvy? Monacacringenvy?

At this point, I imagine it’s tempting to sell those 150 class discs for huge return on investment. I’d hate to be trying to put a whole 150 bag together right now. So hard to find.

Haha, I could be disc golf rich. But then what would I do?

Yes, shopping would probably be easier if I tossed heavier discs. But to be fair, most discs seem hard to find now.

Disc golf rich. I like it.

I tried to find some 150 class drivers for a friend recently. She tops out around speed 9 and every time she loses one of her irreplaceable starlight valks is a dark day. All I could find were some 150 dx leopards at GGGT.

^ That's a good suggestion. Diamond is kinda like a Starlight Valk-lite. Fun disc, but when I threw them years ago the stability was pretty inconsistent from disc to disc.

Finally got out to test recently-ordered discs, so I played with the following bag:

Distance:
155 Neutron Wave: Main distance driver, very straight in the woods, flicks nicely
159 Fission Wave x 2: These flew great today, BH and FH. Compared with Neutron, Fission Waves have a bit more dome and low speed stability so I can throw them hard and not worry about turning it over too much. I might roll with an all-Wave distance driver lineup and see how it goes.

Fairway:
161 Star Sidewinder x 2: More stable than I prefer, but as I recall Sidewinders need some seasoning to fly right. I wish I could find a speed 7 or 8 driver that was controllably understable and available in 155-162 gram weights. Seasoned Tourney Hatchet was my favorite understable fairway, but only available in heavier weights. Are Diamonds still all over the place, stability-wise, or are they more consistent now?

Midrange:
168 Neutron Hex: Still digging this disc for the stable/neutral mid slot
171 Star Wombat3: Looking forward to trying an Uplink

Putters:
173 Electron Envy x 2: One regular, one soft, but not much difference below freezing. Man, I forgot how much fun it was to ThrowaEnvy. Point and shoot, straight-stable-neutral, long for a putter, and sidearms nicely. Looking forward to beating up some yard putters so I can carry one beat and one fresh Electron Envy.

^^^^^^ Aye mate. The new Orbit Diamonds start off flat and straight at 150-152g. Time will tell how they evolve. Alas like all Diamonds of my experience if you turn them over with pace they stay turned over unless it's a moderately elevated turnover... then they float for evvvver. Sure wish they'd mold at 158-162g. But, I've had really good results with 158-159 Gold Sapphires.
