Hey everyone,

I'm thinking about buying a Latitude 64 Riot, but before I do I wanted to know if anyone else out there owns one or has thrown it?

Thanks.

i have thrown one. i liked the glide and fade on it but its just alittle overstable for me, and i throw wraiths
thanks for the input, i normally throw Surges so I think I'll like the Riot, even if i just buy it to see what Latitude 64's product quality is like.
Buy one, you won't be sorry. If you throw Surges already, you should like the Riot. I'd say it's a little faster than the Surge, with not as strong of a fade.....and the opto plastic is hella sweet!
Thanks Strauss, Ill order one shortly. How does the Opto plastic compare to Elite-Z or Champion? Pretty similar?
They have the potential to go very far, but only if you have a big arm. Inside 400' my wraiths go farther with less effort. But outside 400' my Wraiths start to get flaky whereas the Riot just keeps on truckin'. I wouldn't recommend this disc unless you can already throw 400' consistently. OTOH, I've only been throwing these in cold air--they may perform differently when it's warm. My non-expert opinion is that they keep their spin longer than other distance drivers allowing for longer glide and less fade on high power shots.
Matt, have you thrown a Surge? How would you compare a Surge to the Riot?
The Surges I've thrown are way flippier than the Riots I've been trying. (Then again, I haven't thrown a lot of Surges.) It's more of an Avenger style flight pattern. Actually, I would say that the Riot has slightly more high speed stability than an Avenger with better speed and slightly less fade at the end. The glide seems to be pretty good--but, honestly, I'm not sure that I've ever actually gotten one up to speed.

The Riot seems to be a good choice for people who have trouble with their Surges flipping over when going for max distance. They are certainly more trustworthy into the wind. They are not as fast or overstable as a Force or an Xcalibur, but are more disc than a Surge or Wraith.

That's my experience, anyway. Take it for what it's worth. : )
Hootie,
I just purchased the Latitude 64 Vision @ 172g. It is an understable driver that seems to be working well for me..right out of the box. I looked at the specs. of the Riot, but went with the Vision instead. I am a lefthand backhand chucker. Hope this helps.

Thanks Matt and Ken,

I might think about trying the Vision first then. I cant turnover my Surge, so the Riot might be a bit too fast and overstable for me at the moment.

Cheers guys.
If I had to compare it I'd say between a Tee Rex and a Wraith in stability. Great plastic as all the Opto line discs are. The Tilted inner rim takes a bit to get used to, but I really do like the disc.
Stable or Understable ?
My Riots are starting to break in a bit, and I'm having a little trouble with them into the wind. (They tend to balloon on me.) It may just be my inconsistent arm, though. I am, however seeing significant glide on my tailwind shots--they keep their altitude really well.
