Yeah i don't see how glide makes a disc unpredictable. you are either familiar with a discs potential and limitations or you are not. Comets Teebirds leopards and even pro destroyers have the same glide potential as the lat64 counterparts. 4 very popular discs.

And too straight??? That's crazy talk, or someone that needs more field work. And I will even put myself in that very large group of players that has many flaws.

I love the crazy glide. Is recently come to terms with the fact that I can throw my rivers just about as far as anything else in my bag, but I take it as a huge positive. The fuse can be touchy, but "too straight" sounds to me like a compliment instead of a negative. Plus their plastic is incredible.. I could easily throw an all lat 64 bag, but have no loyalties and mix it up quite a bit.

GL rivers are the best thing to ever happen to the modern man.

I would not trade my Opto Pain or Fuse. They are $$. My GL River is a great all rounder; goes straight, left, or right as directed. The Flow can be touchy but that may be a case of the archer having issues.

Yeah
I might have to reconsider.
Superior glide, superior plastic, too straight, too good looking.
Never really thought about how maddeningly perfect that is.

I guess even george clooney changes rigs after a while...

I agree with the colors kind of sucking though. My go to driver is a dark purple GL vision. It is hard to find during the day sometimes and I put it away when it starts to get a little dark. I would love a bright orange or pink GL vision.

With that said, I could never, ever replace it. I bought a ton of lat 64 but then went back to discraft/innova but I couldn't ever get rid of the visions.

I tried the striker (replaced with a pro SL), a core (like my buzz's too much), and a fuse (prefer a meteor, way more consistent for me) and they didn't stick. good discs but others are better for me. I also keep trying to like my different rivers but its not happening.

With that said, If anyone is looking for a 167 GL river (white, like new) I would gladly trade for a Vision in similar weight and plastic.

Ditto.

I started with an Original JL Opto Striker. I had never heard of Lat64 before, but the guy at PIAS was unpacking the first shipment from them and told me he heard it was a decent disc. It was love at first grip for me. As soon as I felt the plastic, I knew I had to have it. About 6-8 months later, I was at a pro shop and got introduced to Gold Line. I got a Pearly blue River. It is, hand down, my best disc. A few months after that, I got an Opto Halo. I was interested in getting a new high speed driver, and it felt good in my hand. I already knew that the Opto Plastic is the most durable available to me, and that Lat64 discs have glide that constitutes a miracle. It was a little bit too fast for me at first. It took me about a week to get my arm speed up enough to throw it properly, but since then it has been great and is my longest range disc.
I don't actually know anyone who has tried Lat64 discs and didn't like them, so I can't comment on it being a passing fad. I can kinda see how the colors might not be bright enough for some people, but losing discs is an operator's error in my opinion. The price, i think, is fair. Sure, they cost a couple bucks more, but the plastic is far superior to any other company's, and you have to consider that the discs are getting shipped over from Sweden.
Yes, I am a Lat64 lover, and yes, my experience of the product line is only with the 3 discs I own and love. I'll tell you what though, next time I go buy more discs, The Lat64 racks will be the first I look at.

I don't have a Vision but would you like to sell it?
