I also brought a few PD's and a couple Buzzzes to have a frame of reference as to how well I was throwing in general. I'm glad I brought the others with, because they showed me I was having a crappy day throwing. I maybe had only about 2 or 3 throws total that I felt good about. Right now, the Flows seem really touchy for me. If I threw them too flat, they would turn and burn. Too much hyzer, and they'd go decent but not really take advantage of the glide. The GL didn't have as much dome as the Opto, but seemed to have just as much glide. Either that or the massive Opto dome maybe actually cancelled out some of it's glide advantage. For a while, I was buying the comparison to flying like a longer PD. But I couldn't find as much consistency of flight as my PD's. In that respect, the Flow was remeniscent of the River. For me the River is all about hitting the right angle of release, and the Flow felt similar to that for me. But then again, I think I was having an off day of throwing altogether, so I'm not going to judge the Flow just on a few throws this morning. I don't think it will make my bag, but I'll give it some more throws whenever I get the chance.

Hello! This is my first post to this forum. I have read this forum for a while and I really like the knowledge shared here. Please continue same way in future!
Without more ado to Flow vs Frenzy. I have had one 170g P-line Frenzy(DD2) and it has been quite understable since first throw. So I had to find something same type of disc with more stable flight. Hence I purchased a 171g Opto Flow. I have to say that I suprised of the stability it has. It flyes like longer Teebird with more speed and glide. I'd describe its flight with values: Speed 10, Glide 7, Turn 0, Fade 3. Maybe these experices are result from quite big dome and almost unvisible flashing around the under rim. Let's see what happends when I sand it off... All in all I throw Flow as long thows(about 400 feet) as with Frenzy but with more precise flight. Before this the Frenzy has been my longest disc but maybe I have to change it to Flow when reaching for maximum distance with accuracy.

I've been waiting on this disc since the Orc...I thinks it's fairly personal, but this disc just has the feel and flight characteristics that are perfect for my game. It flies like a super Orc that is better in the wind, can fly lower, and has more consistent LSS. For example, between rounds yesterday I ripped all 4 of my pink Optos off the same teepad. I threw them basically flat for a long flex shot, and each disc landed within a 10' circle. I also got birdies on a very difficult hole 2/4 rounds (the other two I totally shanked), both times I was the only birdie on my card. It also worked GREAT for my FH. I get a perfect release off this disc, never once seeing any OAT. Whatever the reason (as I said, my love for this disc is fairly personal), it is the only disc faster than the Orc that I've been able to get a perfectly clean FH release with.
The Flow is 100% in my bag now, and I'm holding a spot for the PD2, which will go along with it as a more stable partner.
