The 167 yellow GL Saint that i have lost its stability almost over night and is now less stable then my leopard. At first it wasn't like this and i was really loving it because i could throw it 300 dead straight with a tad bit of fade at the end. Now it does still serve a beautiful purpose in the bag but i was wondering what plastic and weight should i pick up to the dead straight feel. Also had anyone else had this happen to them

^not at all and my gold line saint has seen plenty of action and trees etc. it had an initial break in period, but has held its stability. The saint doe not like to be overpowered and will burn like you are saying. Try to slow down the throw and release it falt or with a little hyper. hmm if that is the case for you and you still want to try one id go with a heavier opto. there will be a little more fade on it, but low and hard will send it straight.

I have a 168 opto and it is MUCH more stable than I have heard it described. It does not want to turn at all.

For a point of reference I can usually get my swords to 350-375 with the flight path I was hoping the saint would have.

We will see but so far my saint is much more S-PD than eagle X.

Is the opto stiff? Never heard of one that stable. Stiffer ones seem to be on the more stable side of the spectrum.

It is pretty stiff. It is easily one of the prettiest discs I've seen too. I was just shocked because I don't have a cannon for an arm but I can usually get some turn on a speed 9 disc, nevertheless from one people were describing as effortless distance.

Its a colorshift opto. With a blue stamp. Although it is colorshift, its much more red than the typical opto colorshifts. I can snag a pic if you end up being that curious
