Oh, its not about my current avenger, or getting something to replace it. I was more or less curious about the "line" itself. Seeing if it was similar to the stability of my 170gl river to 174 opto river.

The overstable options I've thrown didn't have nearly the amount of glide that the GL or good opto has. I ended up giving up on the opto saint and went with the lucid escape.

Just pickup a max weight GL and go for it if you're looking for OS . I promise you won't be disappointed. Never mention the evelves though, they'll come for your first born lol.

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.

I just want to put out there that I don't think there is much that can beat a Saint for tail wind distance drives

for a speed 9 disc it flat out bombs

and I'm not talking about string winds really pushing the disc...just the usual stuff you would face
and not on a "pure distance line"

just a slight anny good snap and the disc just goes...straight...far

Is the Sparkle Saint the most stable out of the plastics?

I believe the consensus is that it is the least stable. Depends on the amount of dome though. Flat ones are tend to be less stable than domey

I'm not sure if it's been asked, but how are the RGL saints? More or less stable than opto or regular gold line?

My RGL Saints are more OS than their GL counterparts. It's hard to tell if it is more OS than the Opto.

I have 2 GL and 1 RGL. My RGL is less stable than the other 2 and is the newest of the group.
