Opto-X Glimmer River
- In stock.
- Inventory on the way
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.
Speed: 7, Glide: 7, Turn: -1, Fade: 1.
Stamp colors may vary.
A bit stiffer than Opto River, so therefore I'm not using it in cold weather. Otherwise same flight characteristics, i.e. understable (not flippy) with extremely good glide and almost no fade. Very useful and reliable. Tip: try use the River for long forehand anhyzer lines, thrown from stand still. Can help your scramble game and save you strokes in the woods. Equally good for long, sweaping backhand anhyzer lines, and mild hyzer to flat throws. Often use the River instead of dd:s. It can go amazingly far (not good in head wind though)! Will always have a place in my bag.
The feel of the plastic on this disc is amazing. Its ever so slightly more domed and understable compared to the Opto River or hybrid River. I had only thrown this disc once or twice in the field before throwing it off of Tee Box #1 at the last sanctioned tournament, and it flew straight and true and glided perfectly down to the basket 292 feet away and parked itself 8 feet out. I love this disc.
been searching for a super straight w no fade fairway driver for a while. with babyhyzer and moderate power this flips up to straight, goes straight, lands straight. give it a bit of height and it fades a little. it’s money now and hope it doesnt change too much. time will tell
Colors are great. Love the disc.
The Opto-x glimmer River his everything you you would expect from a River plus a great look with the glimmer plastic. This version has the most dome out of my 6 Rivers. Only the Retro River is completely flat.
