Noodle arm here, so ya, some of you guys throw Teebirds 400, but I'm workin' on that. I don't see the Saint and Teebird as competitors, but rather compliments. With a Teebird, I won't ridiculously overshoot 300 foot hole and I typically get better accuracy/consistency with the slow speed.

Why throw a faster disc than you need to?
It is just a difference in the game we are playing I think. I would throw a Roc on most 300' holes. If I had a really low overhead I would scratch my head and either rip the crap out of a Super Stingray or throw the Saint on a really low line and pray. Hmm, maybe I do need a tweener disc come to think of it. That's the problem with adding a new disc, everything else in your bag gets shuffled or reevaluated.

After several practice field sessions, I felt comfortable enough to add the saint to the bag for some real game action. 2 rounds at a fairly wooded course and a couple rounds at IDGC proved to me that the Saint is not for me.
The thing was a complete tree magnet!
It now resides in my buddies bag, where hopefully it will see better action.

indeed
I offered it up in your wanted thread in the MP
it is a nice looking disc...just not for me

the Air Halo and King work quite well for me...although eventually won't stay in the bag either as I throw Giants and Bolts
