I am hitting the practice field tonight, so I will take it off the wall and give it another try.

super necro bump brothers.

why does nobody talk about the OLS? at all?

i picked up a 1.1 168g QOLS and holy crap, man. it's super easy to throw far, super controllable. it's hard for me NOT to hit 360 when i throw it. hyzerflips like a bawss, goes forever. it's my distance driver of choice when there isn't much wind.

i saw some of the other runs and was debating getting an SOLS to go with it, but they were flat as **** and i wasn't sure how they'd handle as they were later runs. does NOBODY have any information on these other than "it's a sidewinder with a spacer"? i've seen other people ask in other forums, too.

if i'm pushing these out to 400 on a hyzerflip, would an opto saint do the same for me and hold up to the wind better?

My 164 SOLS is very flat and is VERY overstable. Did not make my bag. My tie-dye SOLF is a dream. It's my distance driver.

QOLS are really great discs (and I don't think there are any other run but the 1.1 out there yet?). I feel they fly out of the box very much like nicely worn SOLF, with some turn and still fades back, or hyzerflip into straight flying goodness. Often times I can use my broken in SOLF or QOLS interchangeably and get the same lines out of both, just a matter or which I feel like throwing at the time MOLS are pretty nice understable discs to begin with too, but they break in to really flippy quite quickly, however that can be useful too, as I carry a worn MOLS as my roller disc. I haven't personally thrown SOLS, as I feel QOLS and MOLS fill all the straight and understable duties for me.

good to know, thanks. especially about the SOLS, because at GGGT near me, all i see is super flat or super dome.

i think i'll go there again today and take all their QOLS.

I have a few OLS (now wife has them), they just don't have that amazing flight of the OLF to me. I really like the overstability the OLF starts with and the fact that the high speed stability gets beat out while it retains the low speed. I just enjoy beat in OLF's to new OLS's. YMMV.

I carry an Orion LS in all 3 plastics and i carry a SOLF and QOLF as well. I play in Colorado were everything is more overstable due to altitude. For me, the SOLS will flip up a bit and fade out to finish pretty straight. I cant get my QOLS which is brand new to flip up at all yet. My drives with the SOLS usually go about 370' and is my go to driver. The OLF's make a great headwind driver and seem to glide better than expected for an overstable disc. As to the original question, ive recently switched back to the Polaris LS and am loving it as a long fairway driver.

I never liked the sirius SOLS because it didn't stay straight in a hyzer flip for me. I use my sidewinder for that.
Also my SOLS was a weird shape, kinda vulcan-ish. And the plastic was...not pleasant. Dull, hard, and ugly.
