Yup, my GL Striker is a good one. I had an Opto that was more like a Firebird than anything. Drove me nutz. Unfortunately, Strikers are fairly inconsistent. IMO, the Optos are more so than the GL's. I looked for a fairly flat one at Disc Nation, the flatter the better, and it turned out pretty good. I believe the Striker is one disc you really should pick out in person rather than buy online.

Well I can hope... I took some acetone and cleaned off the stamps to the point where they are blank yellow and I'm liking how they look a lot better now.

Agreed. High PLH Strikers fly like Saints or even Teebirds. Low PLH Strikers fly like... well, depending on *how* low, it can be anywhere from a little understable to beat-DX-Valkyrie-flippy (like mine is).

Just got my mitts on a Diamond today and played nine holes with it. All I can say is WOW!

I didn't find it anywhere near as flippy as a Leopard, although the only ones I've thrown are beat up DX ones.

It flew pretty straight lines for me, and I noticed a nice extra 10-20 feet from where I usually throw.

This is as close to a magic bullet as I've found; although, it is the first driver I've bought new. Can't wait to try it again.

Couple new items over at GGGT as of today:

New stamp on the Sinus (and apparently replacing the SP according to GGGT, as this one is marked neither AP or SP):



And non-fruity Zero Mercies:



...and all just in time for payday!

I would like to try a Mercy sometime but the Sinus looks like a gimmick. Anybody actually use one and do you even touch the grip areas when you use it?

It's no gimmick. The Sinus is beefy overstable goodness. I don't use the pads, and there is enough space between them that it isn't an issue.
