Just want to share my OLF story and this seems like the best place.

Always been interested in trying an OLF but have been a PD guy for years. Love me some JLS and Ive had an old SOLS in and out of the bag for years as thats a spot that I like to experiment with. But I was heading out on a little DG road trip and always put the tried and true discs in the bag when on the road and playing new courses.

Well the Millennium love was strong on this trip! We stopped at a killer DG shop (shout out to Okanagan Disc Supply in Kamloops!) who had a bunch of used discs for sale. In moments my buddy says to me, you might like this one and hands me a perfect, never thrown 1.1 SOF 160g. $10. SOLD! I do a little more looking around and dig up an unthrown Q Sentinel. Zipper top and perfect. $10. SOLD! I couldnt help but do a little happy dance right there in the store.

So the PDs are out except for the bookend meathook. This 1.1 is amazing. A bit of wind? No problem. Flick? Sure! Just really an easy to throw control driver that is sneaky long. Im in love. But scared cause I landed on a 1.1 and dont pay collector prices for throwers. But I cant wait to see how this thing seasons up. I suspect its going to keep getting better for some time.

1.1s are highly coveted, but I have the 1.4 posted above and its incredible. Sweet deal on the $10 SOLF and Q sent you made out like a bandit

However, lightweight 1.1s, SOF penned and zippertop, aren't that hard too find, probably ~20, maybe 25. If you use Facebook, there is a Millennium group where you could find another easy. Otherwise, scour used bins and sites for backups.

If you like Innova Pro plastic, Millennium Standard is their Pro version. I love my 1.3 MOLFs.

I have a white 1.1 SOF 161-3g?, weight could be less, if you're interested.

Thank you for the generous offer! It's too bad that shipping from the US to Canada is so stupid expensive these days. I'll keep my eyes peeled around here for now.

I feel definitely in the minority seeking out these older molds when most people are all about the latest, greatest disc or boutique run. I tend to doubt that a $100 Cloudbreaker is going to make me a better player!

The OLF has to be the most versatile driver of all time. This is my line up right now, and these are the only 3 drivers I’ve been bagging. 1.2 QOLF is my stable strong hyzer or headwind driver, the pink one is a newish 1.4 SOLF which is my main control driver, and the red one is a flippy 1.2 SOLF which is my distance driver, just a hyzer flip bomber. Crazy how 3 discs from the same mold can fly completely different lines and cover every driver slot.

Anyone know how the latest Q/S/MOLF runs that have the flight numbers are flying? I have a bunch of 1.4 SOLF's and they are just a little too straight sometimes so I'm wondering if the newer are more stable.

I believe 1.4 Q is considered the most OS of the recent runs. I'm generally throwing OLFs in the low 170s, maxing distance in the 375' range with them.

Latest runs of M/Q/S OLF with the 9/5/-1/2 flight numbers are all very close to those numbers off the shelf. Those runs all seem a bit flatter than the 1.4 Q/S OLFs that I have.

The 1.5-1.6 Sirius blends (swirly and light blue only) 170g+ are a bit softer than the 1.4 170g+ ones I have (light blue/white) and are more like my 167g Red one. New 1.5/1.6 S OLFs are more neutral and display a bit of turn (9/5.5/-1.5/2 flight #). 1.4 M OLF (light blue) is stiffer than the 1.5 S OLF and flies more stable, true to 9/5/-1/2 off the shelf. 1.6 Q OLF (dark blue only) is very stiff (more so than the 1.4 Q) and pretty flat. 9/5/-0.5/2 off the shelf.

Probably need to find a different mold if you want a more OS bookend. Draco/Firebird for same speed/more OS/less glide or step up to a Halo Wraith if you need the glide and OS to reach the same distance but left.

Man I thought I knew a lot about OLFs but you just took us to school. Great info. Also, I have a disc I throw when I need more hookup than an OLF. Looks and feels just like an OLF but its called a star Firebird

Hit an ace today with my 1.4 SOLF! Took a work trip to the Detroit area and drilled the chains with a flick
