I am dropping the TeeBirds...

What do you guys think about Lat64 Rivers? I really like the disc when there is little to no wind. I can get more D than the Gazelles with it and I have gor pretty cofortable throwing them. They really suck in the wind and I lose consistency. I am wondering if you think it is worth it to have one in the bag?

I threw a 400'+ shot with my Avenger SS on the 31st and I am really liking that disc alot. I throw Hyzer flips, slight turnovers and anhyzers with it.

Rivers are pretty effortless distance when the wind is kind. My 170 Opto kind of broke in a bit squirrely so I don't really like it for line-shaping per se but wide open spaces they're great. I'd have to supplement it with something that will hold a hyzer like a Striker or OLF or something.

Thanks for the pics E-rock.

I hear ya. I really like the disc somedays and hate it others. I have 3 gl's right now but IDK if it will make the bag. I will throw them more this spring to find out. At this point I don't think they will. On a good day I can get an easy extra 50' with a river compaired to my Gazelle's but is it worth it to cary one just for one or two shots a round?

No problem on the pic's BroD. I think I am going to do some FH form video's this year because I can't find much in the way of vids for FH and I think my FH has come a long way. I am by no means great but I think I could help some newer FH players with some of the things I have learned.

Ultimately, I decided it was not. I only really liked them in a max D capacity and it is a pain in the arse trying to find 160s Rivers, which is the weight I'd want for max D.

The weight thing is a big problem for me too. I want a 165g but good luck finding one. I have tried to trade one I have for a lighter one but it has been a no go. I don't think it will make the bag I just wanted to hear what others thought.

Damn near everything is stable/understable. 3 Rivers, 2 Visions, and 2 Fuses seems a bit much...

I love understable disc's... The Rivers are stable, Visions are understable for the fairway slot... Fuses I like but really don't need because I have the spikes.

I don't play with this bag much I just thought I should see what all the hype was about. This is not my normal bag by any means. I put it together to test out the Lat64 stuff. None of it has mad my real bag. The only three that I though about were the Rivers, Pures & Spikes
