to be honest Rick I don't see a world of difference.
the GL is perhaps slightly flatter...so you could expect slightly less stable than an Opto

but the SDGO yellows are, IMO, quite Glopto...firm like Opto (unlike the flex you can feel in a GL), not "see through" like a regular Opto (although the Opto Pures aren't really all that clear anyway), but there is more light passing through them than on your typical GL disc

bottom line on the yellows I don't think there is that much difference from my yellow Opto Pure

for me they are almost interchangeable

I have ordered one of the silver "proto" GLs but I don't have it yet
my hope on that one is that they are more like a typical GL and slightly softer and a touch less stable

my honest suggestion at this point in time is get a current GL ONLY if you must have an early run at this stage

DON'T get one if you are looking for a different flight and feel
(and my only caveat there is that I can't yet speak about the silver GL)

gotcha..yeah i was hoping for them to be less stable and the typical gl blend. the silvers did look more of that blend,the yellows look just like the sdgo's.the pure in my bag is a glopto creamsicle and its as stable as my other pinks so id imagine that the yellow gl protos are the same. i might just wait..hopefully itll be soon.

Booter, if you are ever in SA, drop me a note and I'll let you try mine out. Doesn't look like I'll be in Austin area any time soon, though that can change quickly.

My GL Pure seems less stable than my Optos. It may be my bad form, but it feels very similar to an Opto Fuse. I tend to turn it over easier than the Optos. It's close, but I think I might actually prefer the Optos at this point. But I've only thrown the Capt America GL I got from Dynamic Discs. I have a few Worlds GLs that I haven't thrown so I don't know of they are all the same. They look and feel the same though.

is your GL Pure slightly flatter (less domed) than your Opto?

that would account for a touch less stability

Yes. The Worlds ones I have seem flatter too. I like them, but for tee shots the Opto seems more reliable for me.

Good to see Westside coming out with some FW drivers. I'd still like to see Lat come out with something slower than the Saint/River/Striker category, something with a speed 6-7 rim. My Eagles need Swedish competition.

although different it seems to me that the Underworld is a more understable take on the River
same for the Tursas re Fuse

the Stag...might be a take on the Saint or perhaps the Striker
the flight ratings on the Stag don't really appear to be "similar" to the Saint

but IIRC the Stag flight ratings were what was initially suggested for the Saint
(prerube can search for that for me)

Aren't Westside's ratings usually a touch high? If so, that Stag might be a slightly slower and more stable Saint. Another Eagle or Teebird type attempt maybe. I'll probably grab one. Then brotherdave will borrow it and probably throw it 100' farther than me.

0 turn would be solid as would the 3 fade
and if it does have that extra glide while being truly HSS of 0 then perhaps this might be a great disc after all
this was an early post that I made in Kabong's Saint thread
as stated I took those numbers from discgolfsweden

do they look familiar? cough stag cough
