Default Explorer

Lat 64 is releasing the Explorer, which looks to be their Teebird competitor. 7/5/0/2 for flight numbers.

Ricky Wysocki signature, sounds intriguing.

Maybe what they were going for with the River Pro?

There's the River Pro, the Spark, the Zion and now the Explorer as well? Seems like Latitude got a lot of molds in that segment nowadays

Haven't thrown the other two, but the River Pro I got was way more stable than a Teebird.

People keep saying this, but I did not think my River Pro was any more overstable than a fresh Champ Teebird. Maybe I just got one on the understable side, but who knows.

As to the Explorer, you got to keep trying until you get that perfect (or as near to as possible) Teebird clone. At least that is what releasing all of these molds in a similar place in a lineup indicated Lat64 is doing.

The one I threw was not way more overstable than a teebird. It just had a more dumpy flight. Teebirds tend to fade forward where my river pro faded horizontally. It also did not have the glide of a teebird.

Didn't know Ricky was much of a Teebird thrower. Thought he was more of a mid and Firebird-esque 9 speeder for FW work.

I thought that's what he threw the felon for? Maybe he's trying to get an all L64 bag.
