In my opinion, the 1.1 and 1.3 SOLF are similar in that they have either a bit more turn or less fade. The 1.2 and 1.4 are more overstable out of the box, with the 1.4 breaking in straighter.

Could just be my experience. The 1.2 SOLF was my favorite driver, then the 1.4 came along and I stocked up on them.

That said, recently I came across a team stamp 1.3 and have really connected with it, it isn't overstable but can hold any line it is thrown on.

Some guys are huge fans of the 1.1, I used to throw a 167 1.1 for understable duties, but never beat another one in that far.

Good info! I actually picked up some OLS’s recently because my OLF’s are just too beefy at my current power level. OLS/OLF is such a fantastic combo, it’s pretty crazy that they don’t get more love but they don’t have a Mcbeast/Brody or trilogy hype machine behind them either

Picked up this SOLF at piag this afternoon. Feels nice and flat like my 1.3 MOLF’s. Pretty sure its a 1.2 though the stamp is too worn to see. Anyone thrown these?

I love my 1.2 SOLF, though have heard others say they don't like them.

My main driver off the Tee is the 1.3 Quantums.
I have bagged the 1.4 & 1.5 Quantums as well.

Now I am seeing a new run of Quantums, the stamp looks to be changed slightly, among other things, there is no run numbers, looks like flight numbers instead. Has anyone thrown these yet? I presume this must be run 1.6... any feedback on the flight?

Haven’t thrown any of the new runs. There’s a new MOLF run out as well, which is my preferred flavor of OLF

I have been trying out SOLFs again lately and just picked up a few at a local shop. How long have they been embossing the run number instead of stamping it? Mine were from 1.6 and were pretty flat. I like the flight though, I have been looking for something a little mellower than a thunderbird and I think these are going to cut it.

I have some of the newer yellow 1.3 MOLF, even newer light blue 1.4 MOLF.

I love the yellow 1.3s, but the light blue 1.4s are quite stiff, I like them with a little more give on the flight plate.

It's interesting you point that out, I had not noticed both the Orion LF and the run number is embossed.

I see it on my 1.4 MOLF.

I don't have any Sirius or Quantum new enough to have the embossing.

Based on my purchases I would guess the embossing has only been happening this year on the Orions.

Default OLF Mega Thread

Most recent SOLF I have is a 1.4, I’ll have to check if it’s embossed
