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

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


I don't really think one is actually better than the other, its more just a feel thing. That being said, you can beat a P-PD understable fairly easy, and I wouldn't consider a disc being 2 different molds an advantage...1.1, 1.2 OLFs...you may as well throw an OLF and the PD because they have as much in common as the 2 OLF versions.

you know I'd agree with that
they are virtually the same disc (wouldn't we all like to know what the top is on the PD)

and if I had not already decided on the OLF I would have gone with the PD

I do however like being able to choose a 1.1 or a 1.2 depending on my needs

As far as I know the 1.1 and 1.2 are the same mold.

How do you tell if it is a 1.1 or a 1.2 if it is not marked on the disc? I bought two of these and neither one is marked with the run.

Blake said they changed tops (check the last couple pages of the PD thread). I don't know that much about OLFs personally.

From the PD thread:
BlakeT wrote:the OLF has been tweaked. it's now a firebird bottom w/ teerex top (vs. a firebird bottom w/ starfire top). the result has been a very slight tweak in the HSS/LSS (not enough to change the numbers), and PWR. the older OLF's at 350' power were like HSS -0.7 LSS +3. the current OLF's at 350' power are like HSS -0.3, LSS +3.2.

there is a difference in the 1.1 to 1.2
the 1.2 has a "blunter" nose
I may not be describing that right but if you put a 1.1 and a 1.2 side by side you can see a (very minimal) difference

ok let me set this straight, the 1.2 MOLF has a different top, the 1.2 QOLF and SOLF are the same old mold but came out domier resulting in more stability

I believe the 1.1s are marked "Qof" on the back and the 1.2s are marked "Qolf." You must have gotten that at Walmart.

there are 1.3's out there now.

i don't remember the exact runs, but there are blunter tops on all 3 plastic types as of now.

the ratings tweak for the 2 molds has already happened. the HSS/LSS values stayed the same but the PWR rating went from 4 to 5.

i see, well for the 1.2 the S and Q were both still the old mold, never seen a 1.3 but i didnt like the feel of the 1.2 MOLF i fondled :( too bad the changed em all now

The various plastics dome up differently. It depends on the temperature and humidity when the discs are made. I know for a fact that the 1.1 and 1.2 SOLS are the same mold and they don't look alike or throw alike at all. The 1.2 is more overstable compared to the 1.1.

the OLS has the same mold across all runs.

the OLF's do not and it's not just a run variance, they put a different, more stable top on them.

i've still only seen the OLX mold on 1.2 MOLF

team feedback was in favor of the original mold + dome, rather than the X mold. the X mold was tested in S and M, but not Q. that run was like 25 discs too, so no leaky-leaky into general stock.
