I voted for two: Warden and Suspect.

I know that the Suspect is technically a "tweener" midrange, but it fulfills the OS, headwind, FH putter role in my bag. And a mix of Classic / Blend / Soft...

Indeed! I freely interchange my (OPTO AIR) Saint and Saint Pro depending on the wind, and if fade is required. An excellent combination, IMHO.

Interesting how two discs that look and feel...
