The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Was looking for a little help for the lat 64 peeps on which is better and why. I love thier plastic. but these seem so close to each other ill probably get both but would like to haer your input.
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.
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.
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 ;)
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.
