Default Lat 64 Flow

I was at the course with a buddy and he had a 174 GL flow that was a huge hyzer flip disc and i tend to throw lighter discs around 167. My question is if you have a flow how does it work for you? What weight is it and such? Do they make domey opto or are they all fairly flat? What should i look for in a flow with more HSS?

Optos are usually more domey, but they can be flatter. The flatter a Flow is, the more understable it will be. Weight is less of a factor than dome when it comes to stability

I have a pretty domey 176 opto flow that is really OS. It's one of my main FH discs.

My 171 opto flow is really OS for me. My gl 171 is a flat flyer. I prefer my sword and northman over the two flows.

I haven't thrown an Opto, but I have a pretty flat 171 GL. It's really nice on straight lines and hyzer flips, definitely wouldn't call it OS. I have heard the domey Opto are pretty overstable like the others are saying.

The GL i tossed was way to flippy for me would an opto be to OS or just kinda flippy? Would a GL with more dome be better?

I have two GLs and an opto. Opto is much more stable. The GLs are even different from each other though. My black flips waaaaay more than the translucent purple. All are 167-171.

Just purchased my first Flow in the MP today. I'll get back to reply in a week or so after I've thrown it.

Mine is Opto and crazy domey. Definitely OS. I've never tried a Flow in any other plastic though.

I carry an Opto and GL. The Opto is Much more stable. The GL is my go-to distance and my Opto is awesome for windy days. Both Glide forever.
