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
How did the Air Halo fly? What D were you throwing it?

it flies stable
will hold an anny for a while but will come out at the end

I did have one turn into a wind and not come out...the wind was from the right, I didn't give it enough height to come out

I've had some nice long straight fast flights from a slight hyzer flip

I never measured one off but I'd guess 360+ and perhaps just short of 400 on a really open throw

I'm not particularly familiar with the mold to be definitive but it seemed like a solid disc

if I was a Halo thrower I could see bagging it for open field distance

personally I'm waiting on the Air Giant

Hands down: Yellow Worlds Saint 175!!!

Straight as a arrow for short or long. Long anny as well.

Any of you throw them? All I know there's yellow and blue opto Worlds Saint. Is that true there's more yellow then blue worlds saint?

I also tried my wife's Air Saint 152 that had slight s-curve and really long that matched my Blizzard Boss distance during field test. Need good form to throw Air Saint.

I am throwing it at about 330' of flat-release power and I love it. Flies straight as an arrow on a low line drive and finishes with about 10-20 ft of low speed turn at the end, depending on how high I threw it.

On good rips I do get a TINY bit of high speed turn, but not much. I am confident throwing it into a moderate headwind since its stability is superior to any Blizzard model I have thrown.

The Air Halo is a big success for Latitude in my opinion. The Air Saint, however, is just not noticeably better in calm conditions than a regular weight Saint and therefore has no spot for me. The Air King that I have is flippy as hell, but in tailwinds with a bit of hyzer release it works. I'm still experimenting with it in calm conditions and don't have a good enough grasp on it yet.

Anybody noticed the updates on Joe's? The PD, FD, & Saint have the exact same numbers except the PD has a power req. of 5 & the other 2 are 4.

Still reach for my GL 173g Saint more often but on calm wind days, downhill, or wide open bomber holes I am starting to like my 147g Opto Air Saint. I have to throw it on a near 90degree hyzer angle but it bombs. The anny lines I can carve with that thing on a good throw are amazing. I've hit a few trees full power with it too and no marks and no notice of stability change. In fact it's seeming to get more stable as I use it more which is cool.

I agree with most of this except I don't throw a hyzer angle that is anywhere close to 90 degrees! I'm closer to 45 degree on my hyzer.

that is probably what he meant

45 degrees not 90

I agree with Alcstradamus that:

Nobody else thinks this looks a little off?
