My 906 rated daughter throws 150 class plastic. She especially likes First Run 150 Flicks, but they are hard to find anymore. She throws a 150 Champion T-Bird for gentle turn overs and a 150 Z Talon for shots that need to hyzer or fade. In mids and putters she throws heavier plastic.
My wife likes the 150 Star Sidewinder for a turnover driver and the 150 Star Valkyrie for straight shots.
I've sold a lot of 150 Storms. If I were throwing 150 stuff, I'd definately be throwing the 150 Storm for mid-range shots.
I played around with 150 stuff when Discraft came out with their 150 Z line a few years ago. I found that I just couldn't get anything 150 out past 330 feet. When Discraft came out with the 150 Surge I found that downwind I could throw that farther than a 171 Surge. I think I was getting close to 400 with that.
I always keep 150 stuff in stock in the IOS merch. I may play around with 150 stuff some more this summer, but I'll probably keep my game bag in the 170s.
Discraft may have *some* 150-class plastic, but what they're missing are discs slightly *above* 150g. I have found that the optimum driver weight for me is between 155-162g. I can't find any Discraft discs in that range, but I can find plenty of Innova discs in that range (especially Champion X-outs.
I wish Discraft would produce some 150-160 discs, then I could try them out.
I want to try the 150 Flick, is it fast and overstable? For example, how would it compare to Innova's Xcaliber?
