i thought i saw a conspiracy theory somewhere out there too about the mold. It could be why it took so long....

You are right about the rim feeling beefier than EZE, but the rim in my zero felt around similar heft, if you will. I don't know if there is a different mold involved, but does it matter? We would all love this disc even if it was called the Opto Bag of Poop. It just flies so well.

Got another round in with the opto yesterday. Had some great upshots and some bad ones(3 shanks and 1 early release trying to make sure i didn't shank). Drove with it once and expected it to turn a little based on previous rounds and it went dead nuts straight.

I am working on figuring out the amount of power and snap to put on this disc.

Very easy to throw from a standstill.

It will definitely be a part of my bag.

for those who have thrown the opto and gold line pures, how well are the gold lines holding up? i've been working on beating a light weight pro rhyno into my understable putter spot but might give the gold line pure a shot. right now i throw the opto for straight tee shots and rhynos for everything else. i like the feel of the opto mold better than the EZE, and the gold line uses the opto mold correct?

Yes. GLs might be a little bit more flat and a tick less stable. It took me a few rounds to get the feel for it, but now I'm using the GL for almost all upshots. Using the Opto off the tee.

got a Worlds GL and it's just as durable as the opto so far. it has a shorter shoulder than opto, but they fly the same for me.

Yesterday after playing a round with Mr America and one other friend, we decided to play another 9 holes from the shorter set of tees. i decided that it would be a good opportunity to learn how the opto pure flies from the tee.

1) when released properly, i can get 275ish feet on a straight line.
2) it flew better for me when the disc was about 7 or 8 feet in the air rather than chest height.
3) when i tried to force it to fly a certain way, i had horrible results
4) headwinds are this disc's kryptonite.
5) hated putting with it

i've noticed this too. if i'm warming up throwing from a standstill i can get clean rips on it and with a full run up i think i try to overthrow it and it can get a bit flippy. thrown with a gentle hyzer and some height and it will glide for days.

During a field test I found my opto pure was very stable and didnt like to be told to go anny. My EZE on the other hand is a great approach disc. I also felt like the EZE had a ton more glide and anhyzers well.
I hated putting with my opto also.
