The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

so I was looking to try a Lat 64 disc about 2 months ago and decided on a River.. hands down the easiest disc to throw that I have ever tried. The damn thing just seems to want to fly forever. This made me want to try other Lat 64 discs. last week my Flow arrived and I'll be damned if it wasn't as easy to throw as the River. 

so, are they all this nice?

Of course the common answer to the question "are they all that nice?" will be something along the lines of "depends on your skill level, needs, style of shot, etc". But the correct answer is: Yes, they are all that nice.

yeah I realize that proper disc selection for my skill level goes a LOOOONG way. a classic example for me is that on day 2 of my disc golf lifetime, I bought a Boss... yeah that didn't work out so well LMAO

Colin hit it right on the head! I love my lat 64 discs! They seem to fly forever and they feel so good in my hands.

I have been happy with all my Lat 64 discs so far. Every one has been nice and they love to glide. Also, I noticed they are more of a finesse kind of disc that favors good form. I own a River, Striker, Fuse, Pure and Bolt and I don't see them leaving my bag anytime soon.

Havoc is a nice disc that reminds me of a Banshee.

My favorite Lat discs thus far are the Zero Pure and Opto and GL River.  I love using my Pure for upshots, controlled drives, turnovers, low power situations, and now it is my putter after giving most of Gateways putters lengthy tries.  LOVE the grip of the Zero compound.

I find them (the ones i"ve tried) to be pretty forgiving when it comes to operator error (nose angles). However, I mainly throw slightly stable to under stable discs. The Lats I've tried or have in my bag are the Vision (well it lost out to my Sidewinder again), Bolt (great disc!), Havoc (see Bolt :).

Some greats, but with a fatal flaw (for me). Striker and Core. The flaw for me is that they are too long for their own good! The Striker is a fairway driver that is close to the older drivers (Valk, Orc) in "D" and the Core is a mid that almost has fairway driver "D". You wouldn't think better "D" would be an issue, but they fall in that tweener area for me. Ya know "why power up the Striker when my Valk can get there" or " Why take a little off the Striker, when my Teebird will do the trick".

Westside also makes some great discs and they use Lat 64 plastic. Oh and one other nice thing about their uber long drivers. The rims are not crazy wide like you will find with some Innova and Discraft drivers (Nuke and Boss)

In my bag I have: Fuse, Core, 3-Rivers, Striker, Flow, Riot, Halo, Bolt. They are all in Opto except for the Halo. They all do what the manufacturer say they will do, and then some. They like to be thrown with nice clean form rather than a ton of muscle. The plastic is tough as nails with a nice long break in period. They are easily the best looking discs on the maket. The River is my favorite mold, with the Fuse and Bolt right on its ass.

I have a Havoc, Riot, Striker, Visions, Rivers, Cores, Fuses, Spikes, and Pures in my Bag. Can't fight the Lat 64 Discs. They are Super. 

My experience is that the gold line is more understable then the opto plastic. My gold line vision turns over way easier then the opto.

I believe this is true as well. Same holds true for Westside Discs plastic as they pretty much are the same.
