GL will beat in, but once it finds it's sweet spot, it will stay there for a long time.
Squishy plastic. End of Line.

Primitus and Mirus were both drivers with the Lat dome.

Then there was the Medius in the mid slot. Primitus actually flew pretty well for me. The Medius was just awful, though.

If they were at all consistent, I would probably be throwing them instead of PDs. They'd get super flexy as they seasoned.

Once Zero Medium Pures came out, I switched over to them for putting. And then realized I really liked the plastic for throwing and switched entirely over for my straight putter shots.

Gonna have to agree with those saying lat64 has some of the worst premium plastic in the game. Opto x is great but that's how I think all premiums should be. I like stiff plastic especially for putters and the new runs are like z flx from discraft. Maybe I'll just have to suck it up and get a 25$ opto x pure...

It's all personal preference. For me, Innova Star plastic is too slick and many runs are too firm, while G* (or Z flx) are too floppy in most weather conditions. Trilogy premium plastic fits right in the middle, which for me is perfect. I actually think Opto-X comes out as a little too firm of a plastic for my grip.

We are incredibly lucky to live in 2019, where we have an abundance of quality manufacturers that make so many taste-specific mold/plastic combos.

G* is floppy? What molds have you fondled? I would say pliable, but the molds I've thrown maintain their shape when gravity's involved. I think Blowfly when I hear floppy.

Teebird, FD, Shryke. Not Blowfly level of floppy. More like a Z FLX or Lat64 Snowline.
