Do most GL discs tend to have better glide similar to star over champ?

I don't think Star has better glide than Champion, but Pro does. GL is said to have better glide than Opto, but I don't see it. The fact that GL is less stable than Opto, especially when beat in, could contribute to that belief.

I've been throwing L64 exclusively for a little over 3 yrs and W'side almost 2 yrs. now and my personal experience is that GL and TP has better glide than Opto or VIP. In fact, off the top of my head I can not think of a time where I thought Opto or VIP had better glide. Better glide and feel of GL/TP is why I prefer them.

Haven't seen any glide differences myself either, people just tend to assume that fading earlier means less glide, which is BS, of course.

was watching some in the bag videos on the Lat 64 website and was amazed at how many of the player were throwing tridents and blitzs. I have been playing for 11 years and play between 6-10 tourneys a year and have yet to see anyone through a trident (besides me) and have only seen 1 blitzs. I think the trident is great and would still be throwing it if they came in the 150 class, The blitzs i tried i don't think i had enough arm for and only got a few throws. As these discs have been out for a few years it will be interesting to see if there are more of these in the tourneys this year now that the pros are throwing them.

That is interesting. What pros were throwing them? Any from the US or mostly Europeans?

Can I get any feedback on the Jade? Hoping it can drop out of the box as a beat PPD?

Jade?...geez, doesn't Lat 64 already have enough overlap with the Saint, Fury, and Vision? 9,6,-1,2...9,6,-2,1...8,6,-1,2...and now 9,6,-2,2. Getting as bad as Innova.

Thrown they all fly very differently. From overstable to understable you get Saint Pro, Saint, Vision, Fury, Jade. The Jade is admittedly their "starter" driver, akin to a faster Diamond. I don't think they really produced it with pro arms in mind, if anything for a roller disc. The Fury and Vision probably overlap the most of the bunch, but the Vision is more of a line shaping stable than the Fury.
