Default Has anyone thrown the Opto G stuff yet?

I saw a few discs on the old interweb and wondered if anyone has tested these yet?

Just Googled this - so Opto-G is what they are calling the overmolds?

I still don't get it, man. I'm not against features introduced entirely for aesthetics like the scented wardens and fly dyes, but why not just mold these in gold and opto? Or come out and admit that there's something about overmolding these that accomplishes a different flight than what they would have otherwise.

Trilogy overmolds are not weighted like MVP. From what I felt, they were going for having different flex on the plate vs the overmold.
I may be wrong on their assumption, it could just be the ones I tested.
Long run production costs should be lower on overmolds as well, as several different discs can use the same flight plate(as MVP does)
