Lighter weight Trilogy challenge ones were very flippy and the heavier lacked glide and started very OS. I had a GL production one that was a bit more reliable, kind of like a seasoned star Teebird but not quite as much distance. Had good forward fade and nice glide but... just not a Teebird. It was just another failed attempt at a Teebird clone. Explorer seems to have hit that mark, but I haven't tried the explorer just decided to stick with Teebirds.

I feel like the River is the closest thing to a longer Comet. It has a similar level of controlability and glide to me. I've been using one on a hyzer line that I'd normally use a more OS driver. The river pops up, glides longer, then fades predictably where an OS driver would head to the ground much quicker.

I think I could play most rounds with a River, a Comet and a Putter without much issue.

Does anyone know when the stamp on these changed? I used to have a sweet one with a skeleton rafting down a river with these dogs. One of the coolest stamps I’ve ever seen. Now it’s a really lame guy fishing. Kind of a shame they did away with the far superior art.

Yeah man, the Cerberus stamped Rivers are DA BOMB! Not only is the stamp way sweeter but the the flight is special as well. The fisherman stamped ones have a baby fade at the very end but the Cerberus Rivers just hover straight down without fade - so beautiful for tunnel shots.

I think the stamp (and disc) changed about 2 to 3 years ago. There's nothing like a Cerberus stamped River but if you want a half notch more stable go with the current fisherman stamped Rivers and if you want a baby tick less stable you can go with a Maul.

I lost my opto river to a creek the other day and i am about to buy another. I see they have a new stamp on the rivers. I assume this means a different run. Any feedback on the new run? Any different than the fisherman run?
