Just got my Opto Bolt yesterday. It’s a 167gram bubblegum bolt. It’s exactly as Lat64 portrays it to be- an understable Halo. The thing I had trouble remembering about it is that you don’t need to force it with lots of power. I put about 70% power on it with a smooth pull, and got 100% of my BH distance. It’s fast out of the hand, and at high speed it will move over to the right pretty quick, then go straight for a good distance, and at the end, for me at least, it faded hard left. It’s basically like a faster Sidewinder. FH, I was only able to turn it over for a roller, which is what my Katana kept doing, and why I wanted to replace it. I feel likt I probably got a more stable Bolt than others might, but it is awesome. Big distance with little effort, and pretty accurate.

I have been playing for over 26 years and am about to enter Senior Grandmaster soon so my power and length has decreased over the years. I don’t get as much spin on my discs so I find I throw under stable discs when most other people would just turn it over so bad it turns into an ugly roller way off course.
My main driver for distance is a Flash. However when I throw the Bolt it goes 30 to 50 ft further, but it is off line a little. The same thing happened to me when I changed my main driver from “Z”XS to Flash, it went further but did not carry the line I saw in my head. But it went further. Now the Lat 64 Bolt is doing the same thing compared to the Flash. It is just a matter of me adapting my throw to get more accuracy. The distance is there; it is super fast right out of your hand and carries a long, long way. A good under stable disc is good as you start to lose your strength. And the Gold plastic is awesome. Check one out

Super Flippy, but Super Fast. The bolt is a great name for this disc as it flies out of your hand extremely quickly, but if you put too much power on it, the Bolt is going to burn. The disc has a nice dome and feels nice in the hand. It has a wide rim like the Halo and Havoc.
When I throw this disc, I make sure I have some room to work because of the sensitivity to power, but I am starting to tame this disc and getting reliable results with it. All I have to do is throw it with some hyzer (30 degree) and throw it with 75% power and poof, 350+ feet. The distance is extremely easy to achieve, but that comes at a cost. Don’t throw this disc into a headwind or it will burn. Crosswinds will also manhandle this disc. Tailwainds and no wind are the throwing conditions for this disc.
Also, this disc can hold some amazing sky anhyzers that never come back. I am still honing this skill, but I have put on some 300+ foot sky annys that I could never achieve with any other disc.
