Both of my 166 Optos have a bit of turn, like a seasoned Eagle. I can't imagine lighter GL's having even more. That would be borderline River. I suppose in that case you could season a lighter GL a bit and cover your understable and stable fairway with one mold.

My 173 GL is actually very stable. I can't really hyzer flip it at all. I can still work some amazing lines, but it always has a fade on it and can't throw it quite as straight as I would like. Thinking about picking up a 167ish weight Opto to compliment it. Either that or work this dang flashing off of it.

Heavier weights are definitely more stable. I'm throwing a a 172 and a 174 opto and they're more stable than my 175g Champ Wraith (7/10 condition).

So after my first round out with my new saint...on the third throw...i threw it into a lake. After searching for about 20 minutes in the 4 ft deep water...it was finally found and recovered. Good news...it was about 50 ft farther than ive ever thrown before.

That's why we buy two. One the throw and one to show.
