I think that 170ish discs are great to learn how to throw a flip-ride (disc released on a hyzer angle and as the disc flies, the flight plate changes angle, or flips, to an anhyzer and mpves left to right).
You can hear me preach about lighter weight discs. My favorite driver in my bag is a 170 Star TL. So easy to throw straight no matter what angel you release it.
When it gets windy, put those light discs away.
Weight per se is never tied to stability. That is a myth and an artifact of the way we usually mold discs. While it is generally true that lighter discs tend to be less stable than heavier, it is from shrinkage, not weight. The heavier discs are either compacted more or have more filler which causes them to shrink less and therefor generally be more stable. In the case of light Bosses or Destroyers, we use a Star plastic that has less shrink in lighter weights than heavy.
