Dominess is huge with the River. I have a flat Opto that flies like a flat GL of the same weight.

I have found that the stability is about the same from Opto to Gold Line. The Opto will maintain it's stability longer due to it's increased durability. I still throw Gold Line over Opto though.

I have both and throw my Gold Line faaar more often. They both started out about the same, but the Gold Line seems to be beating to that perfect sweet spot just a bit faster.

if you want it to turn over easier get gold line. Gold line can be easilly beat in. Opto holds the light turn and fades back with a ton of glide.

gotta go with what ya like... but often you have to balance that with what's available. I prefer the grip of the gold line plastic myself, but that's just my opinion. The grip of opto isn't bad, but gold line is the best plastic being produced right now, imo. I have 2 that are neutral/stable for me, both flat and 172g. They'll hold a turn if you put one on that line, but my throw is w/ slight hyzer and they're both really straight and sneaky long. Need more stable, get a teebird. Need more turn, get a pro/dx leopard. But a gold line river is a thing of beauty, literally. If you have a shop nearby, you should go feel 'em up and see what suits you. For my $16, it'll be a gl river all day.
