After spending a lot more time with my Opto Saint, I am agreeing with some of the posters - it may look like a fairway driver, it might smell like a fairway driver, but it ain't a particularly good fairway driver - IT IS A LONG DISTANCE DRIVER ! Just watch the off axis torque and let it rip.

The Saint is making my Sword very nervous. The distance is there.

Get's my vote for best disc of 2012.

The Saint is my distance driver as well right now. It just feels better than the PD in my hand. I can get my P-PD out further, but I still prefer the Saint. It's the fastest thing in my bag actually. I'm loving the simplified shot selection, and the greater emphasis on using different shots that this simplified set-up is giving me.

I'm going to pick up a lighter Opto to compliment my 175g. Probably a 172g...

Saint is my main distance driver right now too. I don't really see that changing any time soon either. I have a 176 opto that is perfectly OS and can handle moderate headwinds. A 172 opto that kicked my E* Valk out of my bag because it is DEAD straight and a 172 GL that I can hyzer flip or throw long turnovers with. Saints rock!!

I currently drive with a Wraith and used to use an Orc. How does the Saint compare to them. I max out around 400' currently, down from 420 a year ago for some reason. I need a beat Wraith to hyzer flip. Would this be a good option and how does the plastic compare to Innovas Pro plastic. I am trying to get all Star plastic out of my bag because wet rounds and steamy hot rounds become a nightmare for me.

The funny thing is that all 3 are nearly identical! The PLH and domes are the same on all 3. The few extra grams make it more stable for me.

The Wraith and Orc are much faster...The Saint is more Teebird speed. Opto/GL doesn't grip any better in the wet than Star.
