Here's a breakdown of the Optos that we got in:

Pink 166-169
Blue 170-171
Clear 172-173
Pink 175

There are a couple of transition colors, particularly between blue/clear. I have one between pink/clear. I would have liked to try the 172-173, but I don't like throwing clear discs.

S how does this compare with the Mirus? I always wanted a premium plastic Mirus.

I haven't thrown a new Mirus in a while, as mine are in 8/10 condition these days, but I would say the Mirus flips more and fades harder. I truly believe that the distance I'm acheiving out of the Flow is due to the minimal HSS and how long it takes for it to fade out. The two don't really even feel similar in the hand because of the more gradual dome on the Flow. The Mirus has that flat spot for your thumb before it slopes up to the 64 dome. That, and the rim of the Mirus makes pretty much an acute angle which is kind of weird in the hand.

I bought a 171 blue Gold Line. This is the first max D driver I've tried since the Destroyer (I've erased my month with the Groove from my memory), I'm pretty excited to see what it does.

Snap it hard and throw it flat.

It needs to have enough spin on it for it to fly like magic. Don't strong arm it, just make sure it gets a decent rip off your pivot finger(s).

Before you do that, deflash the damn thing...Like some Halos, these can seem quite overstable (especially for people throwing less than 400') with the flash (like that Ryan :wink: ).

I thought the website only showed the 170 as the lightest
I got my Opto but I am considering a GL
did you guys gets GL in the 166-169 range as well?

I gotta check my back ups for flashing, the one I started throwing immediately didn't appear to have any.

I'm pretty sure that we got 2 sub 170 GLs, but sold them immediately.

Pretty sure neither of mine had any flashing on them.

I don't deflash my Pro Destroyers, I find uses for the initial overstability (forehand shots, big hyzers, max D on a flat release) until it beats in. Do you think the GL Flow with the flash is going to be more overstable than a Pro Destroyer to start with? My hope is that it's a little less overstable to start with.

I would say less overstable.
