Obviously I understand your point in this comment Mike but the thing is, this isn't a totally new, ground breaking disc. It's (in my opinion) a substitute for the Leopard or the JLS, it's just a latitude option for that range of disc selection. I suppose I shouldn't say its the "best" control driver I've ever thrown because everything it can do I can also do with my CE JLS's (which I also ADORE), but it's in Opto/Gold plastic! So it feels great in the hand too!
Of the 40-50 shots I made with it yesterday evening, a new Opto River seriously flew like a new CE JLS. I'd give the River an edge in glide but the flight path is very similar. I'm going to use it tonight for my Random Dubz league on the course that made me want this disc in the first place. 350' alley's and tunnels, through the trees, where I need to stay in the fairway at the end of the flight to have a putt. I'm psyched about this disc, I really don't care if no one else likes them because I'm going to buy at least a dozen more and sit on them. I'd be happy to see this thing get a lot of love though so that Latitude reaps the fruits of their labor.
I am dumb.
