Based off this thread I ordered a Pro Line Pipeline from Infinite today!

Found a nice white one in a 163 weight .

Does anyone know if the pro line plastic will take dye? I assume it will if it is similar to a GL or Star type plastic.

So, the Rival has more forward fade while the Pipeline has more lateral movement, with the Pipeline being a little longer?

Rival is surely a speed 7, Pipeline is more of a speed 9. Both discs will fly fairly straight, Pipeline will hyzerflip or bend understable fairly easy but holds true. Rival is similar in those respects. FD is also close but with more glide than Rival.
Straight discs with tiny amount of turn are popular and very useful, I've wanted to find this $ disc. I've tried all these and honestly they are all good. Pipeline is faster and goes further, Rival is probably the shorter of the bunch but not in a bad way, in a control way, FD has so much glide it often goes too far for me. Lately I've tried a Neutron Volt, and really like that. It goes really straight and really far but has a nice solid hook-up at the end.

The elusive 'straight disc' is always searched for. In my experience these are typically very straight for an Advanced player:
from SLOW to FAST

-RDG Serpent
-Innova NOVA
-MVP ATOM
-Axiom ALIAS / Z Buzzz
-Here's where it gets tricky: FD, TL, Rival, Volt, F5 (if you get a good one)
-S-CD ; C-TD ; Worn in Neutron Wrath ; Orion LF worn in ; Viking maybe
-At this point no disc will ride a straight line, it HAS to move either left or right laterally, you need to balance the speed of the disc, with release angle, power and aim to get it to ride a straight line. Its possible to get that straight flight out of a driver for some time, but eventually will move laterally. Almost always will fade out

JLS is a great straight driver for that speed 6-7 range. Orion LS is good for speed 9-10 range. Seriously, millennium has the overall straightest discs I have tried.

I had an old Orion LS that was awesome, powered up went laser straight. I got a NEW Orion LS and its a different mold all together and muuuuch flippier. The other discs to me personally were a little flippy, but straight, JLS I have is more like a leopard.

But agree Millennium has some nice discs and worth looking into.

I wish they were more prominent in the scene

Good advice.

In your experience, which one did you like more, the Rival or Pipeline?

Honestly I kinda ditched them, I'm using a Volt for straight control (but stable) fairway shots and a Wrath for power straight lines, and my stable S-TD for hyzer-flip straight shots.

Never thrown a Rival but Pipeline is a go to disc for me. I replaced my Lucid Thief with it and couldn't be happier.

Which one flies closer to a longer seasoned Eagle X?

Pipeline all day. Most Rivals are pretty straight and don't really wiggle.
