Default Question about the XXX

I'm looking into trying this disc for a number of reasons (Thumbers, hyzers, etc.) but what I'd like to know is, are the flat top or do they have a dome? I'm sure it's run dependent but would gold line or opto give me a better chance at receiving a flat one if I order from DGC? When it comes to utility discs, I like em flat.

Also, which plastic will hold it's stability the longest? I'm a noob with Lat64 stuff.

Anyways, any advice?

Thanks.

Flat top optos are the way to go if you can find them. I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure they were the first runs. There is a pretty extensive XXX thread somewhere.

Opto is really,really durable,I have a fuse I've thrown probably two or three hundred times and it still flies the same in opto,legitimately 0 change in stability,but GL is no slouch,a river that's been my main turnover for 8 months at the very least,hasn't really lost that much stability,plastic is still sexy

Opto is more durable. I have a couple XXXs in GL that got dinged up in some rocks. Not bad, but it happens. My Opto's have never been nicked. But they are harder to see on some courses so you need to consider that.

As far as dome vs flat, I've never had a bad one. For me the ones I have in the low 170 weights get me a little more distance than the max weight discs. There may be some difference in stability, but they are so consistently over stable it doesn't really matter much. Sometimes there will be slight differences in flight paths, but a few rounds is usually enough to adjust to that.

The XXX is a great thumber/utility disc. You will not be sorry. My preference is lower weight (170 or so) and Opto. But I have a couple 175 GLs and they work fine.

Thanks folks.

Just placed an order (opto/yellow/172), now my shipping impatience kicks in.

I have a XXX that has a concave top. I found it at a local course and the previous owner wasn't interested in getting it back. I haven't thrown it to see how it compares to my "normal" flat XXX. If anyone wants it, I would probably part with it.

edit: I love my XXX for short skips and FH rollers. It is a nice utility disc.
