River: HSS -1, LSF 3
Eagle-X: HSS -1, LSF 3
Are you guys even comparing the same grades of plastics? Plastic grade makes a huge difference...

Agreed that plastic and weight make a huge difference with Rivers. For the most understable go gold line, light, and white pearly (maybe just my couple). For less understable go opto and heavy. That said I've thrown a dozen Rivers and not one had a fade of 3. 7/7/-2/1 are the numbers most frequently ascribed.

I have a gold line river that is more overstable than my opto river... Does not compute. Just realized that I had the river and the striker mixed up in my head, apologies, everyone.

If you have a C-FD, try pairing with a S-FD. I have this setup and am seasoning the s-line into perfection. The glow C-FDs are supposed to be less stable than the regulars right out of the box so that may be a great option.

For what it's worth (very little) I generally trust the manufacturer's numbers less than Inbounds, and that is saying a lot.

Yeah, no doubt. Most trilogy discs list numbers as more stable than the disc really is (compared to Innova discs on the same scale). This one is an exception in that it goes the other way. I see Aim's point on the manufacturer numbers but most retailers list it as 7/7/-2/1 which I think is more accurate. Splitting hairs here a bit so sorry for that. Lot's of variation in weight and plastics but I have a lot of FDs and a lot of Rivers and GENERALLY SPEAKING the Rivers will land to the right of the FDs when thrown RHBH in a similar fashion.
