Default Lat. 64 GL Core

Found a Lat. 64 GL Core over the weekend. No name or ink. I have heard a lot of great things about Lat. 64 GL being great plastic. However I was quite let down after a couple of throws. The flashing was quite sharp around the outer rim. It says overstable on the stamp, however flew more like a Meteor than a Wasp like I was hoping. Anyone have any other info on this disc.

it is very neutral to almost understable when beat in, ignore the stamp.

Core is nothing like a Wasp. It is a stable mid. Closer to a Buzzz. Flashing will wear off, or you can rub the disc on a tee pad a few times. It's a good disc, especially if you throw a Wasp, Pain, Vector or some more over stable mid also. Core is nice for dead straight shots with little or no fade. And it does seem to like a nice smooth throw. It isn't a Comet or Fuse, but if you have lots of OAT it will show.

This. The stamp says stable midrange, not overstable. Mine fly dead straight with a bit of turn and little fade. If thrown flat and smooth it flies dead straight. Put a little hyzer and some power and they flip up nice

I have taken out my buzz from my bag and replaced it with a GL Core. I have to throw it with hyzer so it flips up. If I throw it flat with lots of power then it has the tendency to flip over. I love the disc and the plastic.

I consider it to be great luck if I find anything; and so far, the best plastic I've found is worn out Champ. If I found some GL, I'd be so happy and grateful, not complaining about a free disc on the internet.

Don't jump on the guy, he wasn't complaining it just wasn't what he expected from the stamp.

OP, I'll mostly reiterate what the others said. I had an Opto Core, and really enjoyed throwing it. Straight with a hint of turn, and would hold annys nicely.

A core slowly becomes a fresh fuse. I absolutely am not a fun of it as a stable midrange. If you have a 4 mid setup then it would work great with a meteor or a fuse. That being said. I hate driving with this thing. It has way too much overlap with my fuse.

I honestly think they should make the core more like an axis.

Core is a fast mid that will stay straight on a low line similar to a buzz and get some sneaky distances. It's more like a mid-fairway tweener. Throw it like your buzz and you'll notice similar results.

I have a GL core in/out of my main bag. It's pretty neutral and supposed to be more like a mako but has more glide and a bit faster. I use it more for touch shots when I need to work around trees, etc so I rarely use it for full power shots. For full power, I have the axis which is why I sometimes leave it at home depending on the course. It will hold an anhyzer line very well as others have noted.
