I liked this disc right outta the box when I got one a while back. And now that they have made them in lower weights, I like 'em even better. Like an eagle-teebird hybrid with more speed.
Picked up a 174 Opto Brown Sparkly Turd today. Feels great in my hand, threw it a few time in some open field practice. I like the speed on it, kinda Teebird like, but a tick faster. It has enough stability that I don't have to be afraid it's going to flip. Taking it to the course for a few rounds tomorrow.
Played 2 rounds at La Mirada today, no wind, overcast, dry grass....great day for some DG. I used the new Striker on about 8 shots during the round. It is very similar to the River and the Flow in that it holds a nice floating low line. It is more stable than the River and litlle bit longer. The Flow just blows past it, but there is much more distance potential in the Flow. I held a nicer hi apex line than the Flow does though. It has a nice big ship at the end on either a high or low line.
Heres the kicker, I didn't think it was stable enough, but it is a nice thumber disc. The width of the rim is just right. It is a bit of a slow turner in the air, but was completely predictable and long.
