I've ordered numerous air stuff from the triology brands, worlds, enforcers, giants,etc. And all them have well been big disappoints. My giant air is amazing though.
But really something about the blizzard from innova is just leaps and bounds better. Wish the trilogy guys would get this right!
This. I saw some Air discs in stores, don't remember which mold(s), but they did not feel good in my hand at all. So I didn't bother buying any.

Well I picked up an air river. Haven't thrown it yet. Will report back next week.

Early reports on the air river. Its understable. I can get it to flip up and go right from 20+ degrees of hyzer. Skill flips controllably and slow like rivers typically do.

Update: my Moonshine River is working into a nice turnover disc when some power is applied to it, and doing slow more slowly than my Gold Line Rivers did. We'll see if it settles in to a "sweet spot" or continues to season in...

My Frost River seems a touch more overstable than my friend's Rivers in other plastics. The disc just goes straight with a touch of fade and a stupid amount of glide.

Yup, pretty significant difference where you can carry an opto for dead straight and frost for a mild fade. I carry both.

I still maintain that a fresh opto River, with a decent plh and a weight in the 170s, is a stable disc.

If by "stable" you mean straight, I agree with you.

Got my first River (GL 167g) in the mail and tried it on the course today. First one-step throw went a good 300ft on a frozen rope. That's pretty damn good for my noodle arm. It really does just glide for days without a lot of effort
