What Latitude64 says:
River is one of our most popular discs. And this thing has GLIDE. It is easy to throw and fits most player’s power and skill levels. River is a fairway control driver and while it is not the fastest disc we have made, and does not have the widest wing ever made, it is a disc for accurate driving and good control. With small fade and amazing glide, you can really let it fly on those big anhyzer curves.

River (Opto & Opto Air)
TRULY EASY TO THROW FAIRWAY DRIVER!
The River is undoubtedly one of themost famous discs ever made, becoming a legend in just a few short years (first launched in 2010). The River has exceptional glide, and is Very Easy To Throw.
Everyone from beginners to professionals will benefit from using this disc, any time a mid-range disc won't quite make it, yet you still need a soft fade at the finish.
River turns from flat to very gentle annie before its gentle fade, or will flip to flat and fly straight before the soft finish. We can't recommend this disc enough, it is one of our all time favorites.
In Opto plastic, River is a little tougher than Gold Line.
