My sw is pretty flippy
SW has more "S" (same as the Jade), my 148 Diamond's are just glide without fade.

Wind aside, the diamond covers most my drives (300-320max) coupled with a 148 Jade for S-curve & 148 Eagle for fade.

Me and my all my understable discs are not getting along.
Most of the time, either they won't turn, or they turn and burn.
So i am going to try out one of these TM Diamonds again for a while.
My opto diamond is this terrible brown color, so it's lost before it hits the ground thus time of year.

Sweet pic! Throw them smooth and with a LOT of height to prevent burn. Add hyzer as necessary. Super fun disc but you can't just rip it flat and low.

I've thrown a few shots with my son's Opto Diamond that really surprised me(He's 10). I was very shocked that it didn't turn and burn the first time I threw it. A nice controlled 375 ft turn over that held the turn all the way to the ground. After the throw, he looked at me and said, "Sorry dad, this disc is staying in my bag". Gave me a good laugh. I could see how people would really like this disc if they throw 150 class plastic. Very straight and controllable with really nice glide to it too.

Just picked up a nice bright neon yellow/green opaque 153 opto diamond.
I really like the color and feel of this opaque opto, it's the same as my Hatchet and the new Saint I just got.
it's a lot more flexible and grippy than the clearer opto.
Would this be what some guys call Glopto?

The other thing I have found in buying Diamonds for my wife, is there is a pretty big difference in PLH.
It makes a pretty big difference in how they fly.

And speaking of PLH, check out the Frost Diamonds. Higher than the GL Diamonds, with more dome...

Threw mine in 20 degree temps this morning; flew like an lightly beat-in OPTO Jade. The Frost plastic had a nice flexible stickiness to it, definitely easy to grip and gentle on frozen fingertips.

Just picked up a 155 Frost at a year end sale - someone said in the Frost thread that they were almost like light Rivers. Looking forward to tring it out, but your post adds to my anticipation.

I really enjoyed this disc over the weekend.
I forgot how much fun they are to throw.
I had stopped using mine because of the bad color.
This new one will stay in the bag.
Super glidtastic flippyness.
