I'm not throwing beyond 200' with a flat release. They are straight from release to landing when I get the throw right though. I've thrown forehand most of my life (Cincy has a real RHBH bias), and I'm just now getting serious about learning a backhand so those good throws aren't super common but getting more so.

on a 200 foot throw
thrown cleanly the Opto Pure should be dead nuts straight

even up to 20-25 feet in height on the throw

I really am amazed at the distances this thing is getting over my Wizards. I'm starting to try to find some room in my bag for another mold now!
When the TM2 starts to slow way down it'll fade. The opto won't... unless you have the nose up too high. Brand new, both plastics go straight (no high speed turn). Beat them both in and you'll start to get high speed turn and the TM2 will lose that late fade. Opto beats in slower, so your TM2 will get flippy much faster than the opto. My 7 month old Opto has now gotten very flippy and has lots of high speed turn.

Just picked one up (pink) from Discgolfcenter, but it was their last. I hope it gets here soon, yellow is a hard one with freshly fallen leaves on the ground!

I have a pink one with red stamp i'd be willing to trade for a green one (if there are any greens). There's a certain dye i want to do.
