The River is a very controllable fairway driver. It is great disc for low to little wind. A River is not good into headwinds. It flies just like a faster Buzzz SS and very similar to a Stalker with a little bit less high speed stability. The River holds a line very well with only a moderate amount of fade at the end of the flight. Throw the River flat and it will not deviate much from the straight path. I have opted for the Thief over the River because it feels better in my hand and has more high speed stability. The opto line plastic feels great; very similar to Elite Z plastic with maybe a little more flexibility and almost exactly like the Lucid plastic.
