Saint is my distance driver, teebird is my fairway

Just have more control with the slightly smaller rim of the fairway, and the saint can absolutely bomb

What's really helped is using a modified fan grip w/ my index still tucked. I get great snap and good power and it just goes. A little anny with the same power and I get a nice distance line. I'm going to try with some more power rips tomorrow and mess with hyper angles to see what else it can do.

I just ordered, and it should be in my hand tomorrow, a new Opti AIR Saint! Color unknown, but it should be a bright one! I have been using a Bolt in experimental plastic, I don't throw that hard yet, but I will, it flies far for me, but now is turning over very quickly...it's all beat up. I will get a new Opti Bolt, see how that differs.
I have only been flying new plastic for a few months, taking up DG again since 1982, and I see how discs really vary from same mold to same mold, but not so much with Discraft...it seems, but I only throw a couple Glides and Buzzz' They seem consistent.
I love to learn and experiment anyway!
New Saint tomorrow! Just got a new Jackal today! I'll share my experience...after the weekend!

I forgot to mention, my blizzard champion discs, I have three, all starting to break away at the edges, 'cuz the bubbles leave gaps...maybe it's better that way so it breaks in, but they are really breaking!
So, Opti Air...sounds like the way to go for any air being added...right? Good job Lat64!

TONS different from '82, huh? Think I was still using a Whamo 142g lid in '82...hmmm. You have to be specific with most of Lat's discs. There are inconsistencies. Not so much with the Saint...at least that I have seen yet. I only have four anyway, but they all came from different places. Maybe that counts as pretty consistent. IMO, the Saint fixed some of what has been plaguing them, esp with the Strikers. Time will tell if we can say this in a few years or not. Will be a fun ride til then, though.

Discraft is just as bad as all of them now. Every run of Avenger SS's I have thrown was a completely different disc from the last one.

Get a River, that'll be your new favorite disc to throw along with the Saint. It's wonderful.
