It's a little too fast to be a solid control driver, and not as long as a Wraith for me, so it loses the distance driver slot as well.

I don't find myself wanting something between the Pred/Wraith very often so it never stuck in the bag.



That's been my experience. I'm able to throw my DX Eagle as far as the 1.2 Molf. I wasn't too crazy about the fade.

I find all OLFs longer on a lower line than a teebird or eagle. On a high line there isnt much that is as long as a teebird/eagle. There are discs that can do specific lines better than the olf, but there are VERY few discs that can do as many lines as the olf can with as much consistency...and basically none that can do them at the range the olf does them.

The only discs on the market that can really compete with the OLF are: the Discmania PD, the Starfire, or mebbe the Avenger. The OLF is longer than all of them for me and works on the widest variety of lines (once you have a stack of them in different stages of wear)

Aaron nailed it in the previous post. The OLF is one of the best molds available today. I don't know what I would do without them! It makes a fantastic driver for wind, control, max D, you name it, it'll do it, and do it well.
This is unbelievable disc that acts like space ship. -lovetodg-

I throw DX Teebirds and QOLF's in both 1.1 and 1.2. My most beat 169 DX Teebird is probably as far as my 167/168 QOLFs. But my QOLFs are not beat at all as they have not had a world of throws yet. My beat DX Teebird is right in it's sweet spot and DX vs Quantum is not really a fair comparison. I would trust the OLFs in a wind situation more than my DX Teebirds. So far I have found that my 1.1 QOLF is longer than my 1.2.

I just this week received a 1.1 and 1.2 MOLF in 167 and 168. I will be throwing them this weekend. I'm excited to see how they go and how they compare to the QOLFs (and the DX Teebirds). I know some guys on here are saying there is overlap but for me they have different uses. QOLFs for distance with fade and to hold flight characteristics longer. Hopefully the MOLFs will be great distance/hyzer flip/tailwind discs. I'm expecting them to be my longest disc. And the DX Teebirds for straight purposes over shorter distances than the Orions will go.

If there are some people on here who have tried and don't like or can't find the spot for their MOLF in the 167-170 range I could probably see my way to trading a Champ Teebird in exchange :wink: . (11x 166, 12x 167, 171, 172...8s on the Sleepy Scale, the 172 might be a 7.5). I need a couple more Orions.

Like people said Millennium doesn't have the market penetration but their stuff is great.

If you throw over 380 the 1.1 Molf will be understable for you, not so the 1.2 Molf.

In my bag I have a worn in 1.1 Molf for l-r, newish 1.1 Molf for slight l-r (ie. it flips a little bit), 1.2 Molf for hyzerflip to flat/straight (1.1 Solf also do this) and either a 1.1 or 1.2 Qolf, depending on how much (over)stability I want for the course/weather conditions.

I must say the 1.2 MOLF is a superb replacement for the 1.1 SOLF. I dont really like throwing out of production discs, so the 1.2 molf steps up nicely...the only difference is that the 1.1 solf lasts forever, but the 1.2 molf is notably longer.

I threw the 1.1 MOLF today (we had snow last night and the 1.1 is orange so easily found...I could not throw my 1.2 as it is white and I didn't want to risk it). I am very impressed with the MOLF. Easily my longest disc...and that is without it even being worn in...just maybe 8 throws. I'll throw it more tomorrow...but I definitely have to get more MOLFs and perhaps some SOLFs.

:/

Just like the Nuke is WAY wide rimmed driver X added 100 feet to your drive...plus you got an ace with it the first time you took it out.

Gimme a break.

The OLF is still in the top 2-3 drivers out there...the PD is just a slightly more stable OLF.

You guys are making me want to go back to the OLF just because of your PD fanaticism!

You should chime in and let Blake know how you feel...He's got the PD as less stable than the OLF currently.

I throw OLFs in the tourney bag and PDs in the goof off bag. Looks like I know which one is superior.

aren't the new ratings gonna make it look like the OLF is more stable (just ever so slightly)? (edit: snap...that's what discspeed said)

anyway
OLF page back to the top...thanks for that Timko...now to get it past 3 pages

Aaron_D wrote:The OLF is still in the top 2-3 drivers out there


agreed
as most likely is the PD

'cept the PD comes second to the OLF
cause you can get an understable OLF (the 1.1) and a stable OLF (the 1.2)

more variety and selection in the OLF line to meet your needs

plus the stamp is better

to be fair to the PD I might give it's pro plastic the edge in terms of feel

and credit to Innova...the FB bottom plus "X" top combination sure seems to work for creating a mutant disc that covers off just about everything

OLF = fast disc for Eagle throwers
PD = fast disc for Teebird throwers

buy the one that fits.
