So what from the DD/Lat/westside are you pairing with your saints? I have been throwing a 175 Recycled Saint and digging it for slow turnovers with a late fade, and straight shots, I have an opto xxx on the way. Is there another fairway type driver I should check out?

River or Fury. Fury will feel almost identical in the hand. Both turn over really well.

Nice is there a fairway in stability between the XXX and the Saint?

I throw Escapes with mine kind of like a Teebird/ TL combo. I also bag an Underworld for shots that need turn. I have a serviceable forehand so I don't have to rely too much on understable stuff except for the occasional hyzer-flip.

I think the escape and the saint are too similar for my tastes. I would like something with more lss and hss.

Then I would say Stag, but I doubt that may have enough HSS. Maybe a heavy VIP. The next step could be a PD or Boatman, but those are going to be faster.

My Saint is a lighter GL and Escape a heavier Lucid. Both are fairly fresh with about 2 dozen rounds and I havn't noticed any change in flight yet, for what it's worth.

My opto saint is 173g and has lost a considerable amount of hss. Even released hyzer it wants to turn a bit and late fade. I think latitude really needs a more stable fairway/control driver even though it says "overstable control driver" on it haha. Either way still love the saint. Pairing it with rivals and patriots atm..

They need a Saint with way more HSS. I'm patiently waiting. I know many others are as well.
