got quite a few throws with my 176 pink opto today. very impressed with how well it flies. it is what I always envisioned out of an overstable midrange - something that doesn't have to be ripped like a driver, but is still very HSS with a strong, but not ridiculous fade at the end of the flight. From what I can tell, the HSS is similar to a new KC Roc, and the fade is stronger, but more in a forward motion than a hornet or drone which just fall out of the air.
All in all, it's an overstable midrange that can actually be thrown like a midrange, and has more versatility than a typical overstable midrange.
I'm sure I'll get a lot more work with it tomorrow if I play, it's supposed to be very windy and very warm. I'll probably swap out a disc for my 172 goldline pain.
