That is Opto brudda, with that bronze metal like dust in it (not sparkle) that make the disc shift color in the light, really bizzare. Bonger has a Sword that does it, really beautiful, maybe he can explain the effect a little more.

Curious to find out how it handles a headwind, if you can find one.

It is just that color shift metallic pigment. In opto it is usually subtle but some of them really pop

Half of my throws have been into about an 8-10 mph head wind, not much I know. At that wind speed the disc only budged just slightly, not even a full half a point of turn I'd say. It is also a 168g disc if that kicks in any calculations in your thought process.

I've got a 173 Orange GL Saint on order. I'm a sucker for Lat and fairway drivers so it's a must buy.

Thanks. I don't like playing in crazy wind anyway, so this is good information for me. Can't wait for mine to get here.

Finally received them in the store today and they are unpacked and ready to go. I picked out a clear Opto, solid blue Gold Line, and a dull orange Sparkle. I was a little depressed we did not have a yellow sparkle and I could not bring myself to grab a deep blue sparkle.
