I am not going to lie my interest in millennium has increased since Brinster won the usdgc. From my sig you can see I am lacking a 9 speed "go to" driver. I don't know anything about the run numbers or plastic type but after reading various threads on millennium and still ending up confused I figured this would be the place to start. Any recommendations for the 9 speed millennium stuff? what plastic to throw? good pairings? general thoughts? I am looking for a workhorse driver that I could use on anything from 300-400ft. Any and all help is much appreciated thanks!

OLF all day my friend.

It is my main driver. I only use the Tern when I need mega-distance and have room to work. Any other distance line I'm blasting an OLF. Without going too much into the runs, here's what I have and what you should go off of:

QOLF: starts off the most OS of the Orion's, and stays that way for a long time. Even in lighter weights, it will be clearly OS.
SOLF: starts off less OS than the OLF, and beats in quickly. Once beat in, it holds that sweet spot seemingly forever. Still overstable, but able to shape big lines thanks to it's natural turn. Think of a baby Wraith or Destroyer
Standard OLF: starts out almost as OS as the QOLF, if not matching it, but beats in really quick. I've done some sick roller shots with a beat-up OLF I borrowed from a friend.

I will add that IMHO the standard/base millennium OLF (or commonly MOLF)varies in stability with the weight spectrum. 160 MOLFs are very flippy. 165's start out like beat SOLFs, 170's are similar to OLFs, and those 175s are like the QOLFs in overstability.

I don't know if/how this varies between run numbers. Most of mine came from the same batch, don't recollect which one it is.

i throw a lighter 1.1 SOLF (will probably be trying the newer runs soon) and that gets me 360-400 pretty reliably, always comes back in the wind. soon i will pair up a heavier new run vs my SPD and Slaidi and see how they compare. so far the SOLF seems like it'll be better.

i pair that up with a QOLS that i just bought (also 1.1) and holy crap. the QOLS is my preferred driver for distance right now, pretty much a faster patriot for me. not sure why more people don't like it. will hyzerflip bomb big time and is the first non "super high speed" driver i can honestly say i trust to hit 400 without trying to throw my arm off. my patriot will do the same but not as fast, not as reliable. i feel the QOLS could probably replace a patriot on some fairways, too.

1.1 QOLF zippers are where it's at. Magically delicious.

Dang now it looks like I MUST try some of these OLFs . An OLF in each of the 3 plastics should (with some wear/break in time) cover the majority of my distance shots correct? How many of each type of OLF do you carry?

The OLF is a bad mamma jamma. Great control driver and the different plastics give a wide variety of stabilities for everyone.

Local store had 3 1.2 QOLFS and a couple 1.1 MOLFS. Had to snap them up at 9 a piece. Got to say I'm loving them so far much more than I did the PD. Plus there's no plus rim crap going on.

Were those by chance milky white solf stamped qolfs? I see them there for 8-10$ new and actually stocked up on them when I threw OLFs. They fly like a seasoned Pred, they have a very high plh and fly OS for a 1.2 QOLF.
