I never understood why there were no discs in the mid 50's and low 60's for the longest time.
The way it was explained to me is, there are two weights targeted.
150 class, and max weight. The weights in between are all mistakes.
Nowadays , mid to high 160 weights seem to be preferred in alot of discs.
It does seem strange to me that they can mold a Candy Valk at 150 grams, but not at 160.
My lowest Champ is a 167, exactly as you said, but I do have a seriously overstable flat 161 gram disc in Star plastic that I can rip as hard as my arm will bear.
I do have to mention one thing though, I'm old and weak and 350' is a killer drive for me, but, my 175 gram Champ Valk flies farther in a neutral wind than any of my other Valk discs with my weak little arm, so Cindy, try a heavier Champ Valk, it might fly good for you too.
