What discs throw closest to a new L64 Gold Line Bolt when broken in?
 
Thought I'd toss this question out to the minds of DGCR to see if anyone can help with this.

I like the way the Latitude Gold Line Bolts throw when they're brand new, but I find they break in too quickly, anyone have any recommendations on what would break in and then throw very similar to a Gold Line Bolt?

Any thoughts/ideas appreciated!

It’s advertised as an understable Halo, so I’d start there.

The Halo isn't a bad suggestion, but it can be inconsistent as well. Halos tend to be fairly flippy, but actually have a harsh late fade.

Honestly, if you want a glidey, somewhat understable flight, I'd use a Shryke. A star Shryke would be my choice. They're on the flippy side, but don't beat in to become as flippy as Bolts.

Came here to say Shryke, if you can find domed VIP Kings they work too.

It's been awhile since my Bolt days but I'm tossing the Mayhem into the ring.. Glow Nuke as a second.. To prove I might be crazy..

Maybe a Star Tern, the Shryke is a good suggestion, domey VIP Kings can be hard to find.

I bagged a gold line bolt for a while as it had me reaching baskets I had never reached before. Started out as a nice gentle glide to the right with a forward fading finish. Within a few months of wear it became a twitchy uncontrollable mess for me. Big wing understable drivers are a nightmare to control.

I then went to Sheriffs starting with a lucid one. Much more stable but my arm wasn't getting any turn out of it. Still a nice forward fading finish and good distance but not the distance I got out of the bolt. Picked up a lucid trespass that I could get a little turn out of but it finished harder to the left than the bolt or sheriff.

Finally picked up a fuzion sheriff and it has been my goto for 2 years now. Started off pretty HSS but with a forward fading finish. Slowly beat in nicely and is now the perfect max distance driver for my arm (350ish). Ripped flat, it glides slightly to the right. A little hyzer and it is a lazer beam. I can crank it high on an anhyzer and it always pans out flat for me.

I also put my lucid sheriff back in my bag when I need a little more insurance not to go right at all or for downhill drives.

Most likely a Z line Crank SS. If you are looking for a softer plastic you could use TI.

I like and use the ESP Crank but it has a lot more fade than my Bolts.

I don't know if this is too obvious but have you considered getting an opto line Bolt instead and beating that in? They should start more stable.

The problem is that the OP will end up with the same issue. Opto isn't all that much more durable; Opto is nowhere near Champion plastic in terms of durability.

I liked the Sheriff suggestion that I saw above, so I'll second that.
