This is not true in my experience. Later runs have a dome to them. They have more turn. They fly like a domey star Teebird, not like a flat champ Teebird. I've gotten a couple later runs on the internet, and my local shops are all domed.

Smart to stock up on first runs. As long as you don't lose them, that set will last.

Pretty much all rivals I've seen are flat. I look at them a lot. the beefiest I've found are the light snot yellow, 175 and hard as a rock.

speaking to the issue of dome on the rival and how to pick stability, i was in GGGT today and did a thorough inspection of all the rivals to make sure i was right about the OS ones.

it's true; i compared the PLH of the 5-6 pinnacle they had that were sorta yellow, flat, stiff and max weight against all other colors/weights. the PLH was probably a full 1-2 mm higher. there were some that had a bit of dome too; first i've ever really seen that.

you could probably order based on weight and color alone and wind up getting a nice beefy one.
