Default Diamond (in the rough?)

Anyone have any info about the Latitude 64 Diamond?



Found this info just now from discgolfsweden.se

Latitude 64 have just received PDGA approval for their new fairway driver Diamond, an understable small diameter disc, easy to control for beginners and kids. Something like the River but with a narrower rim, it will probably be available in weights from 14grams and up to 170grams according to the company. The discs will be available in the shops during April in in Opto-line plastic.

Some figures for Diamond:
Outside diameter: 21.1 cm (max weight 175.1 grams)
Inside rim diameter: 17.4 cm
Height: 1.4 cm
Rim depth: 1.1 cm
Rim thickness: 1.8 cm
Flexibility rating: 6.92 kg
Rim configuration rating: 30.00

I wonder how durable a 14 gram disc is going to be, even in opto.

We all know what you meant. My brain is getting tired and I got a good laugh out of it.

God, I hope it's something Teebird/EagleX like. Speed 7 moderately overstable compliment to the River. That would fill the biggest hole they have in their lineup.

Come to think of it, that looks like a notch on the outer edge of the wing. Oooh, this could be good.

Well, I'm guessing you're gonna be out of luck considering it says it's an understable disc right there in official description. It also says it has a smaller rim than the River, which in theory should make it turn over easier considering they say it's similar to a River, so my guess is that it will end up being more understable than the River. Sounds like a good beginner disc though.

They also say the Havoc is a fast overstable driver...

They say the rim is narrower, but according to the specs it's exactly the same at 1.8cm. It is smaller diameter though, 21.1cm vs. 21.5cm in the River.
