Would also suggest a flow to replace the surge. I started to move away from Discraft plastic trying out new stuff and the flow slid in pretty well. Saint, Core and Fuse are also good choices as well.

Lat doesnt have an answer for the avenger/olf/PD type disc really, but saint/beefy striker combo could get you close. You might also try Westside's stuff, same plastic as Lat
couldn't have said it better myself.

In my experience, while Gold Line and Ti may look similar, they fly nothing alike. The Ti that I have thrown has been more stable with less glide than the Gold Line that I have thrown. So for that reason, the statement that Gold Line = Ti is faulty, imho

Well I've only thrown a Ti Buzzz and you're right I went on looks/feel alone. But it's hard to equate GL to ESP.

That's most likely the mold shape and not the plastic. Buzzes are flat... they don't glide like cores do, no matter the plastic.

My advice is to find somebody in your area that is addicted to Swedish plastic and put them in your hand if you can. I will agree that a Fuse is a Comet and a Flow is a Surge equivalent. The Core is the closest thing you will get to a Buzzz from Latitude but really has more glide and can't take as much torque as a Buzzz.

Well Lat can't replace the Magnet - nobody truly can IMHO. The core has been compared to the buzzz, but with more glide. The GL Fuse will do some of the things a Comet does, but the Comet is a pretty darn good disc and they aren't identical by any stretch of the imagination. Lat64 has some wonderful drivers, with the River, Saint, Flow, and striker being bandied about most often.
