Stiletto

I bought a Opto-line first run Stiletto and I have had some time playing around with it and I decided to buy two more because I liked it so much,(One more opto- and one in Gold-line).

I know they are stable and they are VERY hard to push straight more than 300 ft before starting turning left.

These has been my GO TO drivers this year and they have showed great performance both on windy days and in forehand situations.

I mostly like overstable discs, because the more I now it will turn the more confident I become that it will follow the red lines of different play choices.

I don't have a video on myself throwing these "monsters" but they are amazing to have if you know when to use them right.

What are your thoughts on the Latitude 64 Stiletto and how does it fly for you and what do you use it for?

I bag one and rarely throw it. But when I do throw it...I know exactly what it's going to do and it gives me the most massive margin of error I've ever had.

For short, hard spike hyzer holes, nothing beats it. If the ground is wet it sticks in perfectly.

There awsome! I use them primarily for thummers but will backhand them in extreme L/R and headwind situations. I can throw these further backhand into a 35mph headwind than on a calm day. Into strong wind I can get it out to about 325 tops, on a calm day I can thum it that far. I have also had some luck with crazy shaped forehand flex shots and a few nice forehand rollers as well.

One guy from south of Sweden that play our course often once played a round with me and I threw my older Stiletto (174g i think) on a (Par 3 110 Meter) and I made it slightly turn to the right before fading left and it landed past the basket (10 meters to the right and 20 meters past it).

He said he had seen top pros is south of sweden that compete in distance that never had been able to make a Stiletto turn right before turning left (for a RHBH).

This guy thought that it wasn't even a Stiletto until he asked what disc it was.

I guess it's sligthly beat up and that's why I could make it slightly turn before the fade.

It is like a missile now and when I throw it, it goes dead straight and always fades after about 250-300 ft when thrown with good form.

You can make any disc turn with bad form, super OAT, and wrist roll.
