Depends on your power as well. Generally speaking most older players should benefit from lighter discs off the tee, especially in a no wind or tail wind scenario. I think you'll be surprised at the easy distance a 150g class disc will yield. The key thing though is to throw something more overstable the lighter you go. I have a paper plate Destroyer that is the envy of anyone who throws it. lol...

Online. I like high 150s for drivers so I have learned to grab a stack when they are available.

What weights are you looking for?

Right now I carry Pro Wraiths and Valks at 157/158 and love them both. I carry a 167 Pro Sidewinder which is working out great, but wanted to try an RR in the 158 range as well.

I live at just over 5000' and get nice turns out to 300' with the Sidewinder, but that turn goes away on trips to the mountains.

Disc Golf Center recently had G* RRs in the high 150s.

The Hero Discs has the best set of premium lightweight discs in the https://www.herodiscusa.com/disc-gol...50-class-discs that are Innova discs since Hero dog discs company is a sub company of Innova.

No, I wanted to try out the CN Wave first, to see if it would fill the overstable distance slot (instead of the Pro Wraith). Pro Wraith seems to have a bit more distance for me, but my drives have been so short lately that distance drivers haven't gotten much of a workout.

Holding off on my next order until someone has Star Wombat3s in stock again. When that happens I'll probably grab a Fizz Wave for fun.

But I've really been digging the 158 G* Roadrunners lately. Deflashed with a few parking lot slides, G* RR holds a gentle turn pretty much to the ground. I even toss 'em sidearm from time to time.

Didn't read the whole thread, but if you are liking 158g RR, you'll love 156-158g Diamonds. True story!

Heh. I used to throw Diamonds. Fun disc. There are certain throws that I could only do with a Diamond (or maybe a Mamba) that I miss having.

The problem with Diamonds was that maybe 2 out of 5 flew the way I wanted. The other 3 were flippier than I liked. And I'm not willing to buy 5 discs to get 2.

But it has been a while, so maybe they have worked out the consistency issues.

I saw the Wombat is back in stock it was gone for the 3 top version as that sold better due to wide variability on the top I say get the Star Wombat and flat top the mold? All the fact that I can't find 3 top of molds and Shark 3 getting replaced has me thinking is Innova stopping the 3 top versions of molds as a plan even before Corona Virus?
