Anyway, I had a pick of many, many FLOWs to try. I grabbed an opaque pink opto 175 and a silver/pearly GL 175. They are both quite domey, with the Opto just a little more so. They were not however the domiest we received.
I don't have much time to write about my experiences right now, but it was a really nice disc. Initially they seemed to really die at the end of the flight, but after I took some of the flashing off they were flying awesome. They are really straight flying for how fast they are. In short, they reminded me of longer Strikers or Orcs. I'll post more later...
Alright, I'm back and I have more to say about this disc. The first thing I'll add is that out of all the Lat64 drivers I've tried, the Flow flies most similarly across Opto/Goldline plastics. My two have similar domes and PLH, and fly very similarly stability and distance-wise. I threw them on a couple of hyzers and then some long and straight drives. Today, they went as far as my Nukes were going, which was surprising. In approximately a 5mph tailwind they flew farther and straighter than my Nukes. I felt immediately like I was getting more of my power into them than I was my Nukes. The grip was much more comfy for me than my Nukes, so this disc has got a shot to make my bag. In the hand it is like a wider rimmed PD, Northman, or Striker...It just has the shape that I've come to trust in my hand. I was snapping the snot out them without even reaching back like I have to with the Nuke or Boss.
Both flipped up VERY SLIGHTLY from a hyzer release. I would give them perhaps a -.5/-1 in HSS, definitely a notch more HSS than my Nukes. This is a bit skewed though, as most the holes I used them on today had a slight tailwind, and I didn't get to test them into the wind at all.
Overall, I'm very impressed with the glide, controlability, and neutral stability of the Flow. When reading the description prior to release, I didn't expect to be really interested in the disc. After throwing it today, I'm very interested. It has at least peaked my interest enough to carry it around for a while and do some thorough testing. Imagine a faster and more HSS Northman, and that's basically what the Flow is.
