Default Goldline River = Good distance roller?

Seems like it would fit the bill fairly well, anyone thrown some with it?

I have some Opto Rivers but haven't tried to roll them yet I will give it a try tomorrow if the weather report is correct. My river at least feels like it would have too much dome on it for me to feel comfortable throwing a roller but who knows it may blow the other things out of the water .

River is understable, can be a good roller, I use it for a roller RHFH, turning it over left into the ground about 100 ft out and it rolls straight for about 200 ft, consistently.

I am having minimal success throwing a Sidewinder roller, but I lose distance cause it falls off to the right to fast. I then went to a predator and a teebird, to try and counter that right roll, these work fairly well but they never stand all the way up, they just constantly fight left til eventually they flop over. Thought a River might be the happy medium Im looking for.

I've been rolling my 161g GL River 400'+ RHBH. Stands up quick and just takes off. Works good for a roller for me.

Bah, told myself while walking down 13 at Zeb I was going to remember to try a roller on 14... And I forgot. Might be able to give it a try tomorrow.

I've never tried one it might become a roller hole for me . I've been getting right to where the hill goes down towards the basket for the 35-40ft putt or so and would love to make it a 15 and in putt .

I normally use 12,13,14 to try out new disc. So each hole I am throwing 4-5 disc just seeing what they do.
