Sirius Orion LF
Flight Rating Category Value What Millennium says:
The Orion LF is Millennium’s breakthrough in driving technology. Off the tee it will cut through a headwind, and it’ll give you a predictable fade downwind. Together with the Orion LS, it’ll answer all your driving needs.

Newer players will love it upwind, while experienced players will use it to make amazing shots in all conditions. Distance + Accuracy = Birdies. Count on it.

Millennium's Orion LF is one of the most versatile and predictable high-speed drivers available. While its feel and design are a bit of a throw back to the rim configurations common to the late 1990's, the Orion LF has the speed and glide to hang with the majority of the high-speed discs available on the market today. While the “long fade” label of the disc's name may lead some to believe it's a disc designed for hard left-fade shots, the Orion LF's flight characteristics could best be described by “moderately overstable.”

Slightly understable at high speeds and moderately overstable at low speeds, the Orion LF has the versatility to be used for a very large number of shots depending upon your power level. Medium-powered throwers should find the Orion LF to excel as a long hyzer disc, a straight driver into moderate headwinds (10-15mph), and a predictable s-curve disc if thrown with some anhyzer. Bigger arms will find a use for the Orion LF as an accurate high-speed stable driver that holds a tight line-drive “s” flight and a straight driver when flattened from a hyzer angle. The Orion LF is also an excellent sidearm driver and has an above average performance with tomahawk and thumber overhand throws.

A major standout characteristic of the Orion LF is that if it turns over, it recovers and fades back left. This characteristic is lacking amongst the majority of disc in the same speed class. While the nature of this design does sacrifice some glide, the increased predictability and accuracy more than makes up for any loss of distance.

Another characteristic worth mentioning is that with a rim width of 1.9cm, the Orion LF is a disc that is very easy to get a strong grip on, especially for players with small hands. This may not seem important from the outset, but this quality improves release consistency and makes it easier to throw with nose down.

Overall, the Orion LF is versatile enough to cover several roles in your bag and has all of the characteristics of a workhorse high-speed driver.

Review: The SOLF is a very long and very predictable stable to overstable driver. I can drive a nice accurate 370' shot with a simple slight hyzer line nearly every time, absolutely no turnover/S-pattern required. I throw valkyries a lot but the SOLF is more predictable, especially with a bit of wind. I love Eagles (X mold) for all-around use, and the SOLF is great because it flies a lot like a slightly beat-in eagle but just longer, and has the narrower rim than wraiths/destroyers etc. so seems a bit more forgiving of angle and flies slower, with no shortage of distance. MONEY!
