The best glide+overstability combo I've come across is a C-Line plus mold PD. The softer ones that aren't pearly. I did not click with the Escape at all. I didn't try all that hard to make 'em work though. They have a wicked vertical skip when powered down though. It's pretty cool to watch.
I love my Saint(s), but I'd never recommend them for an overstable slot. They only seem to fade heavily if you get 'em nose up, but that eats into the distance. I use my 173 GL for threading through the woods. A little turn, a little fade, but not too much of either and tons of glide.
