Default Opto Vs. Gold Line River

I'm looking into buying one and wondering which is the better choice?

Its all opinions. Each has their benefits and flaws.

Buy one of each and find out. Typically opto is more stable than GL. I have a flippy opto and a stable GL

I have both. My opto is domey and more stable than my GL. I throw nice S-shots with the opto, and Leopard-like right turns with the GL. YMMV

There is a ton of info in the lat thread, searching for river turns up a ton of posts already up.

Opto/gold line domey/flat heavy/light. there are a ton of river flavors and a ton of answers to match. Tons of variance with this mold. In general gl is less stable and breaks in faster than opto. more domey equals more stable, less dome less stable. light is less stable, heavy is more stable. That is why i chose the greatest disc of all time the leopard. ( almost as many varieties too ) ymmv.

I really like the gold line as a turnover disc.

Goldline: Beats in faster, More flexible/bendable, Prettier, grippier (imo), Less Overstable then opto.

Opto: Beats in slow, Stiffer, Clear, Slightly slicker (imo), More Overstable
