It really depends on what run of OLF you are talking about. I would say that the newer OLFs are more stable than an Orc while the earlier runs are less stable than an Orc.
I would also say that generally speaking the Orc has less HSS but more LSS than the OLF, so the OLF is straighter. However, oddly I find it easier to stand up an OLF on a hyzer flip. Even though the Orc has less LSS, you can still put a fair amount of anhyzer or torque and it won't turn and burn. I would also say that the OLF does better in the wind than an Orc. Orcs get squirrelly in a headwind or strong crosswinds. Just goes to show that it isn't all in the numbers.
I would say that a Thunderbird is even straighter than an OLF, but I have a more limited experience with Thundies.

You can crush on both if you get your release angles dialed in, and both have the same distance potential as a Thundy, if not slightly more.

Depends what you want out of it, really: OLF is probably a better all-around fairway/control driver while the Orc is probably a better control/distance tweener driver.
^this for sure

Especially the less stable first runs and those first run Qs that were stamped 1.2. Anyway, sweet tight s-curves pushing 400' on a low line. I prefer them in my control driver slot on longer woods courses or tailwind hucks where an orc might require some flex.

I've got a stack of old pearlies and tulsa orcs and love the mold. I've held onto a few of my favorite QOLFs but I just jell with the orc. I tested PDs when they were hot on DGR but found orcs that crush the wind or hold my power no problem.

At Jonesboro this year I had a 350' CTP on a low flat line over the road with my well seasoned tulsa star orc that may have popped up a few degrees but flew 300' on a dead straight line over OB into a slight headwind before that sweeping orc fade kicked in. I picked it up used years ago but I'd say today its 10/5/-1.5/2.5 with 400' max on a 20' high flex line.


Last weekend at a bring your own partner bomber par 62 course, I hit my first ace of the year on a 320' hyzer skip that carried over the road fading into a L to R crosswind. Its just a production champ 175 with a whopper dome. I got it as a water disc but its been money for years. started 10/4/0/4 now 10/4/-1/3; hyzer's to 380' into whatever wind you'll ever find in the Midsouth, you flippy small sample size orc haters. Its my PD/OLF/ThB
