We know, we know: Westside is a Finnish company, but they're produced by Lat64 in Sweden, so there you go...
Latitude 64's newest driver has just been released! The Villain is a fast, overstable distance driver that reminds us of a TeeRex. It's only available in Opto plastic at this time and only with a first run stamp. Check out the current stock of Villains by clicking on the following link:
AND Westside's newest driver, the Giant, is available too! It's an overstable speed 13 driver with a turn of +1 and a fade of 4. Designed for big arms! Produced in beautiful Tournament (Gold) and VIP (Opto) plastics by Latitude 64 for Westside discs.

have you thrown the westside sword? if so how does it compare?
the other thing to remember, the opto flow is far more overstable than the stats imply.. it's also far more overstable than the gold line of the same mold. I have a gold line flow that is my go to driver and an opto flow that is crazy over stable.
Ron, I agree 100%. I have the gold line flow and the opto flow also. They are completely different with regard to flight. The opto is much more over stable. I love my gold line flow. I am hoping that the opto flow will become less over stable as it gets broken-in, but that has not happened yet.
I am totally impressed with both the gold line and opto plastic with regard to durability.
yeah the durability is amazing which leads me to believe that the opto break in period will be a long one before it's close to the gold line.
Sword, It is very nice and over stable. I use it for forehands in the same way I use a Firebird. Mine is a tournament (GL) plastic, so I would assume the VIP ones would be even more overstable.
Flow, Only side note to what was already said is that I bought a ligher 167g I think, and it flips up just like the gold line does.
I have been throwing the Air Saint and Air Bolt this week, and the Air Halo for several weeks now. Oh my. Love them! The air bolt is very flippy, I think comparable to a vulcan but once again...more glide. I live at 5000 feet so hyzer flips are not my normal effort but the flip with a bolt just keeps going and going and going. The air saint is amazing...much smaller rim than anything else I can get to fly that far. I am not a huge arm guy and the air halo will take full hard snap with a forehand and still not flip. Great for long hyzers, even into a headwind.
