I've never tried the Riot, but I have a Flow and absolutely love it. if I had to make a comparison, I'd say it's very Beast-like. easy to throw but also easy to turn over if you're a stronger arm. hope this helps. 

Flow is going to b the same speed but one degree.more understable w more glide. And I guess it should always b said that discs don't always fly exactly how they ate meant to so the flight numbers r just a general guide. Lat 64 discs seem to b pretty by the numbers tho from my experience.

I throw both of these, and they are nothing alike. The Flow is a straight line stable disc with tons of glide. The more dome the disc has the more stable it will be with a bit more glide. (Sweet ass disc) The Riot is more along the lines of a Firebird. It has the tappered rim to it, so if that is not your thing, be forwarned. It is a great headwind fighter and a very reliable disc.

Doesn't domey equal less stable. That has been my experience
For some reason this is not the case with lat.64 from what I have found.

The dome produced by the cooling process with most Lat discs pulls up on the edge of the disc giving it a higher PLH thus making it more stable.

 

There are some flat Flows out there with a high PLH that are nasty stable, but they would be the exception, not the rule.

 

I've found domey and the new high speed discs = more stable. Now my domey Valks and lower are less stable. It's all about the PLO.....ooops PLH line ;)

Not familiar w plh. Will have to look into it. Was just going by domey understable discs I've thrown...Vulcan, archon, dart... And flat overstable discs Ive thrown...Rhyno, wraith, katana

wow thanks all but.. what is plh?

It's that thin plastic line AKA flange that you see on the rim/edge of the disc. The higher it is the more stable....I think? Well.. pretty sure :) I never really got into it, but it's suppose to be very accurate in determining a discs stability.

PLH= Parting Line Height

 

The edge of the disc where the flight plate (Top) meets the rim of the disc is called the Parting line. Just that its higher or taller doesn't make a disc more stable. Rather, it will determine that one disc is more stable than another of the same exact mold.

which, for innova champ plastic, varies for every single disc.
