Bought this to replace an old rive, love this straight flying driver with a confident finish to the left (backhand right hand)
The picture showed the disc was pink and the pink gold, but the print was blue, so not what I wanted but still love it
As someone who has an average max distance of 330 to 350 ft, the Rive is just a bit too stable for me to use it as intended right out of the box, but only by a little. The glide is very good and as always, the plastic is phenomenal, although it is prone to denting easily, more so than other premium plastics like Gold or Opto. The thing with Royal Grand plastic is that once it beats in a little (which it does relatively quick), it stays like that for quite a long time before becoming too understable. I also throw the Grace and Havoc, which are more understable, and the Dynamic Discs Raider, which falls in between the Havoc and the Rive. I also bag an gold-X ballista Pro which is way more beefy than the Rive. All in all, the Rive is a great disc that has enough stability to fight the wind, but doesn't want to dump during the fade, providing the best option for long distances.
Perfect flight. Who does not love big distance :)
It's the farthest flying disc in my bag. It's awesome!
The rive has by far been my best driving disc for forehand flicks
