Default Opto vs. G/L River

I've been experimenting with a couple of 168 Opto Rivers for low tunnel shots, with a lot of success. I was wondering if there was enough variation in flight for it to be worth it for me to carry a couple of G/L in the same weight?

I happen to have both in my bag and they are my go to fairway drivers. There is a difference in stability in that the opto is more HSS than the GL. If you like throwing the disc then definitely pick one up in GL, beat it in a little and see if you like it. BTW a beat in GL River is great for annys.

Opto is a bit more stable and stays that way longer. My GL only lasted a season and change before it became uncontrollably flippy with moderate-heavy use.

I like Opto better, but I carry both. GL is definitely more flippy.
