Let's get this straight - Lat 64 IS Trilogy. Maybe if DD starts molding their own, this will change. But If you praise DD in any way, a lot of that credit is due to Lat 64 for making the actual discs.

I'm really sorry, summer came to Sweden in May for the first time in almost 100 years so i've been on the course...

I found this video today, slightly better quality then the ones i made and posted here earlier.
EDIT:
It didnt work with the timeline-link so just hop to 4:15.


The SE (which should be sold out) gets there rather quick, even in max weight. I tried a 168g Opto and it did fly very similar, i really recommend you to give it a go.

My Dye Stalker flyes like 7/5/-0.5/1.25. . .but after i tryed the Drew G Luster leo3 i droped the Explorer and the Stalker from my bag. . a G-star leo3 and a Drew Leo3 have all my 7speed covered. . .

The ESP Undertalker is another nice disc. . i would say it´s a 7,5/5/-0.5/1.75

Sockibomb Opto-x Explorer announced for this summer!
I got confirmed from Latitude that it'll be less domey but slightly more stable than Opto.

Sounds like the perfect Explorer for headwinds, big arms or to beat in...

Missed edit time but Wow... My beat up SE Explorer is seriously improving my game.

It flies so straight I would compare it to a River with less turn (often none). The other day I parked one of the scarier holes (can't wait to see the pros pipe one down there!) on Ale yellow hole 6, 297' straight down a tunnel with the basket a few feet to the right of center. Hyzerflip to straight is my go-to shot and this disc is what I've been looking for in the Saint pro, Rival and Teebird.

My beat SE Explorer is my go-to right now. I actually got an ace with it a couple of weeks ago on a 330’ Hole that starts straight and ends left. I released it on a hyzer and it stood up to almost flat, then gently faded at the perfect time. I recently snagged another one ad a backup.

What are the numbers on your Drew Leo3? I kinda want an Explorer to try, but Thunderbirds, Teebirds, and Rocs cover most of my shots in the 280'-350' range, where I'd probably be using the Explorer.

A brand new Drew Leo3 thrown at 80m i would say is 7/5/0/1. .will probably break in to more like 7/5/-1/1

A friend that throws 420feet max tested my Drew Leo3 and throw it 300feet..it was a very slight hyser release and it Flew very straight
But the Explorer is more stable then the Drew Leo3 but not that much more

Alright. I have had my Opto Explorers for over a week now with some pretty extensive testing. I still stand behind my initial observation that they do not have the glide of my TeeBirds or T3s, but somehow they are deceptively long if you can lay into them. The SEs I had were routinely short of my T3s, but these Optos, while still needing more power, can get just as far as anything I am throwing.

The one thing that has me convinced is that they are consistently on target. The key, again, seems to be throwing them at power. They are crazy overstable if I power down them, but once I get behind them, they are straight from start to finish. That speaks a lot to its HSS. That is going to be something I will need to watch. I could stand to maybe lose a little HSS, but if their role is to have a straight flight, I would prefer to lose LSS, not HSS.

For now, they are in the bag, and I pulled out my T3s and G-PDs.
