River is one of our most popular discs of the past decade, probably due to its tremendous GLIDE. The River is a fairway driver for those accuracy shots that demands good control. It is easy to throw and fits most player's power and skill levels. With small fade and amazing glide, you can really let it fly on those big anhyzer curves.
Flight Ratings: Speed 7, Glide 7, Turn -1, Fade 1.
About the plastic: Opto is a perfect combination of polymers to produce some of the most beautiful and durable discs in disc golf. Discs in this plastic are translucent, fairly soft & gummy and are extremely durable so they can take a good beating and maintain their original flight path.
Very domey and worthy in my opinion of “7 glide”. Gets a good bit of turn if you throw ~350’ making it good for hyzer flip to straight shots and subtle turnover shots. If you throw about ~300’ then this could be one of your furthest flying yet also one of your most controllable discs.
I'm a big MVP guy who primarily uses a crave or rhythm for a fairway driver, however threw this and loved the extra glide on it. It'll stay in the bag for now.
One of my favorite discs in my bag. It's my go to stable driving disc, it can turn when needed and it can also stay flat and stable depending on how much spin given.
I love the opto plastic, great grip and feel. Very comfortable to throw.
