Do you use yours often or is it reserved for get-out-of-trouble shots?

no special reservations on it just as needed

I have been throwing 150s drivers since about 2011 when I got a Star Valk as tourney swag. Every once in a while I experiment with heavier drivers but always come back to 150s.

Currently all of my drivers are 154-159 except a Star TL at 162. Neutron Wave, Pro Wraith, and Plasma Insanity. Occasionally a sacrificial Star Shryke for long water carries.

150s drivers put way less strain on my ragged-out shoulder for FH, and I like having driver weights consistent to avoid problems with early/late releases. Putters and mids in the 150s seem too touchy to me so I keep them in the 165-172 range.

And light drivers let you know if your form is off.

I will use my DX Dragon as a tailwind driver or as a long distance open/more open shot bomber besides as a water disc. It is 150 grams only. I love the Dragon for that as well as some more open style left shots. I have tried the disc as a backhand roller but the mold is not great for that kind of shot due to how light the disc is.

Currently, I have 4 150 class discs in my bag, 3 of those happen to be MVP(Photon, Volt, Crave) and the Banzai(which kicked the 150 class SOLF out) and the 150 class Wave comes in and out.

There are 2 things that MVP does better than anyone else, driving putters and 150 class discs. MVP, make more Fission!

The 150 class discs being at the top might be due to the over mold tech, not the first brand to make such a disc as Wham-O/Discover The World might be the first with the Wham-O Max a hard center disc with a large outer ring of soft rubbery plastic, the discs are large Wham-O Fastback sized discs with a weight of 160-165 for most though some have weight that is super light. The discs are unique in that they have a domed putter shape top with a slow midrange Comet like wing.

Backhand, they were about equal, perhaps the SOLF may have had a slight edge, but the Banzai releases from a forehand so much cleaner(for me). I can get an easy extra 30 foot with the Banzai on a forehand.

Take note that my favorite discs to forehand are: Sirius Falcon, Z Wasp, Neutron Envy and the Proline Banzai. Norice a trend? They all are beaded or have a raised inside lip... I know, I am strange.

I forgot to mention this.
I like the R-Pro Darts better than the DX. I was bummed that R-Pro wasn't offered in 150g.
When the 150g DX Dart arrived, it felt very R-Pro like; super happy coincidence.

The 150g Dart is tough to beat... but the Colt is giving it a run for its money
