Are you going to share? Otherwise this is a pretty voyeuristic thread.
I shared, what about you Discspeed. Have you thrown the Pain yet?
I got to throw one a few times this weekend. It was a teal GL and weighed 176. First of all, I didn't see it mentioned anywhere how much like a Roc this disc is. In my hand, it felt more like a Roc than a Wasp does. This GL disc was shaped like a perfect Roc with a very nice and even dome. It also flew exactly like a Roc...but not as stable as you guys describe your Optos to be. It had a gentle hyzer pull for it's low speed fade, and it kicked in early like a newish Roc as the disc slowed. The GL I threw however had negative HSS when thrown hard. It was pushing out of it's hyzer angle a little when I was trying to throw it over 300'. I didn't find it to be as fast as my 2FR Buzzzes, rather closer to Roc/Wasp speed. It did glide really nice...better than premium Rocs.
The pain and the Hornet fly nothing alike...The Hornet is much faster, more stable, and driver-like in it's flight characteristics.
I actually prefer the Opto Plastic over the GL anyway, it feels better to me. I hope the Opto will break in to have a little bit of turn like you described with the GL. That would allow me to carry 1 mold for midrange duties.
