I'm not a fan of the Havoc myself. I have one, and all it likes to do is turn over and keep drifting right. Never even tries to come back.
those latitude drivers have always been very inconsistently molded. id drop them all honestly and go with some of the newer molds which hopefully are better designed to not come out from OS to US in a single disc....

This is the first time I've ever thrown any Latitude 64. I've thrown 2 Bolts, a Havoc and 2 Halos. I like the plastic. The Opto and gold line are nice. The Bolts might be one of the best sheer distance discs I've ever thrown. Problem is they're flippy and hard to hit the right line with.

I do like the Halo a lot. it's a good, fast driver. The Havoc is useless. Far too understable. The Bolt kicks the crap out of it in distance too.

those are some of the oldest latitude molds. I think the newer ones seem to be better received across the board really from DD and WS as well as latitude.

For which discs? I threw all the ones you sent me today. I liked the Bolt a lot. It's flippy, but holy crap is it long. The Quasar was super overstable. The Rampage was a champ, but not quite as stable as I thought it might be. That Trespass was surprisingly stable. Beefy.
