How do Explorers beat in? LSS or HSS first? Does dome matter to how glidey or OS they are?

HSS seems to go first in my experience. I’m not sure as to your second question.

I’ve got 5 of these I do field work with. Opto in blue, weights over 173 are the most stable. Opto in white seems to be most neutral.

The Opto Air even seems to hold its stability well in weights 158-160, my 155 is a dead straight bullet with only a tic of fade right at the end.

The Opto X at 175 didn’t seem to be any different than the Opto blue.

I would say they go rather simultaneously, my straight Gold-x is really just straight on a hyzerflip, even turning into something resembling a FD at this point. 😅

Dome seems to be what initially makes the Opto more stable and anything with more dome that that, like the recycled, I gave away.

Decodye and Snow had a opto dome and also flew incredibly straight on a max distance hyzerflip, sometimes they match my Flows at distance on a 375' shot with small turn and fade.

Not to answer my own question, but I picked up a couple retro burst Explorers when they came out. They do start out nice and stable, and I haven't hit enough with it to particularly alter its flight. It has great cycling potential.

I have been using the Opto Explorer in 175g for about a month now. This is now my favorite fairway driver when I need something to go straight with a little fade at the end. It has helped me get two CTPs at the local league and a parked drive on hole 2 at the AWOL course, which I have struggled to do last year.

Anyone compared the stability of a moonshine Opto to Opto-x?

You know, I liked the flight of the Explorer - compares nicely to a stable FD, TL, or DX teebird. But at the end of the day I didn't find the rim or plastic particularly comfortable, especially compared to say, a star FD or TL/3.

Great disc, just not quite as great as my preferred fairways. Thoughts?

I love the Explorer, but just like the Teebird it has that really sharp bottom of the rim which does not feel nice in the hand. Flies great tho
