I have some 153-157 rivers...they are pretty understable. I don't think they could take 500 feet of power even at severe hyzer

If you think about the difference between a 178 River and a 164 River it is almost the same reduction again in stability. I am pretty sure the diamond is more stable at those weights.

These probably won't be for me, but what I like is that Latitude is actually going to use less stable molds where for certain folks without a lot of power, lighter weights will make sense and promote good form instead of just taking high speed OS stuff and just making it lighter.

Probably 2-2.5 weeks. They are in-transit to one of my distributors State-side now. PM me if you like. I certainly don't want to co-opt this thread for sales.

The other thing I love is Latitude's statement about stability basically saying the smaller mass means more understability; compared to Innova's claim that Blizzard discs have more stability than you would expect.

Bragger.

I currently throw a 161 that is not overly flippy, but very controllable and does hold great anny lines with some good form and snap. The Diamond is definitely more stable comparatively, not to mention the rim on the River is bigger and more comfortable for me. Plus, my wife isn't fond of me reaching for her Diamond.

Just got this email from Tomas at Latitude regarding Sinus's and Spikes in Premium Plastics.

Hi Stuart!

Spike will be made in Gold line during this winter, we've made a small batch of them this summer but ran into some problems so we had to stop. Since then we haven't had the time to make them, but they will be made :-)
Sinus could be made in Opto or Gold but we haven't tried that yet, so I don't know if it will work or not. But we will try the next time we will make them.

I hope you can wait for them

Regards
Tomas

I really hope we see some non-putter molds in EZE before spring.

I know the feeling. Can you imagine a driving Spike that takes forever to beat in? I was so excited I actually let out a fart of joy. Much to the chagrin of my poor cat who was sitting in my lap at the time. Come on winter!
