What weights did the GL Bursts run in?

Were there any lighter ones ( in this first run ) that came out in the 165-167 range...???

All I have found was 173+ searching around all the bigger online retailers...

I did pick up a pink Opto in a 167 to test out though . Also l grabbed a 173 lavender burst too, don't know if I'll throw it but I will have one in my Trotter Box stash.

I haven't seen any below 170.

Yeah most are very OS. I've thrown white, pink and blue all flying simular.

Funny enough I happened to get my hands on two sexy white/transparent burst, both with lower PLH and stability. The beat up one even shows some turn when thrown flat.

Can't wait to hear more about the Gold ones!

Threw my GL Burst River Pro today in mild winds. Wow. Not what I expected. Not sure if it's the Gold line, but I had read of no glide, dumpy fade. This disc has tons of glide, solid HSS, and flew great.

I wonder if they tweaked the TC mold.

Threw it alongside an Opto Fortress, Opto Saint Pro, 2017 Sexton Firebird, and a GL Spark.

The Firebird and the Spark were on a different level for over-stability. The other 3 were all similar, flew well and resisted wind for a medium power.

Nooo! Not when I just gave up on them and other myself 8 Saint Pro.
I bet the first run will be money for cyclers? Hopefully they keep opto OS, then it would compete with the Saint Pro for sure.

Trident is much more overstable.

Finally got to test the GL River Pro.

The TC Opto River Pro turned out exactly what I thought it would be after reading opinions. Glideless and dumpy. The GL River Pro was a completely different disc. This disc had a ton of glide and held up to full power without turning. A reasonable amount of fade at the end of the flight, but nothing like the TC river pro. Forced annys held it most of the flight and faded out at the end.

The GL is the flight I was hoping for when I heard it was going be "a more stable River." Still has that sought after glide but has HSS and fade. Great disc and will probably be bagging them over my Rivals. I'd recommend giving the GL river pro a chance.

Damn! If it wasn't for the fact that they're so close to the older Saint Pros i would have started cycling at once.
Friend bought one so it to be interesting to compare it to my beat in TC opto.

Is the River Pro the closest thing to an “Trilogy” Teebird? Maybe a beefy Teebird?
