how do they compare to the Bolt?

some sites show them as having similar flight ratings others show the Bolt as much less stable

Every variation on the Bolt I've thrown has been super flippy, like Archon flippy... I can't control the damn things. As far as Havoc's go you have to look at the parting line where the upper and lower molds meet to segregate the stable from understable ones. The stable ones have a higher line and I honestly feel like they fly like a 1st run Star Destroyer (not super beat). They do a nice tight "S" curve with just a hint of hyzer on release. The lower line Havocs are Bolts to me, can't throw them. Way. Too. Flippy.

I'd give them the title of best Max D driver in Latitudes line up because they're faster than Flow's, glide more than Halo's, and are easier/more comfortable to grip than Halo's. I almost wrote the damn things off because the first 3 I bought were all sky rollers, somehow I managed to pick up another one and it was a totally different beast. Now i've got 4-5 of the stable ones, which I believe is the current standard run, and they perform wonderfully.

I'm actually trading a buddy a sexy pink Fuse for one of those. Its a 155 Orange GL Halo. Can't wait to bomb that thing around.

^BINGO.....I have two medium stability Opto's and a really stable Skullboy Opto. They are way more workable than one would think. One is flippier than the other and can really work some late turn lines, sic to watch. The Skullboy flys the longest smoothest hyzer lines I've thrown.

Worth the time to work through learning of this disc.

Changing to putter chat.

Just got a Zero Pure in the mail after falling in love with the Opto. Definitely floppier than I was expecting, but I think I can grow to love it. Should be nice for those hillside putts when you need something to stick. Still need to test out EZE Pures, too...

I have a 161g Tourney Sword, I get very little turn on it even out of 400' pulls. Really sweet disc. The sub 160g Halos that I've seen have been frickin meat hooks.
