Apparently I was missing two. Didn't realize they had a mid and a putter, too.

Ooops, yeah. Hated the Sarek. The Bryce I threw was flippy. I may be done with these experiments.

The difference in durability between gold and opto is very small in my experience and grip is basically the same. Personally I feel like opto is grippier, perhaps thats just me

Opto has far superior grip when wet compared to Gold Line. Opto is still slick, but Gold Line’s is non-existent.

Yeah I agree that the grip on a lot of GL kind of sucks. Honestly if they were going for grip on the flight plate, Recycled might have been the best choice. It might not be great for durability, but with an Opto outer rim I bet it would be okay.

Doesn't look beefy enough for me to be interested.

Actually the bottom edge of the rim is opto so I feel like this setup should break in quite nice. The outside of the rim getting worn in while not too much of the bottom edge getting damaged.
On the other hand there's not a huge difference in durability between the two.

I'm curious, also feel like it's a slot they don't really need to fill with both the Saint Pro and the retooled Spark. Same went for their earlier overmolds though, neither seems to have the task to fill a gap in their lineup.

Anybody throw these yet? I'm still waiting on my mystery box to arrive but see these discs have been out long enough for others to receive them.

It's beefy, but not the Firebird the ratings would make you expect. Think more Sexton Firebird. Absolute 0 turn, torque resistant, but good straight flight with decent glide, then a biting late fade. I'd say 9/4/0/3. A little shorter fresh PD.

I got the Infinite VIP with a bitchin' stamp, but I'm just not a big fan of L64 and will stick with my Sexybirds.
