I'd agree with that. I didn't try anything new faster than 9 speed this year. I had kinda crap luck with the Volts too. One stable one, about matched my heavy Opto Saint for distance and stability, but the Saint always managed a bit of extra glide. My other two Volts were far less stable than even my GL Saint. I really got a handle on the Saints while trying to figure out which of the two I liked better. I just traded/sold all my Volts (traded one for a Saint ).

I'm really liking how my GL is starting to season. It flips up to dead straight and if I get it low and hard, it'll do a very late right turn. I was in the woods on Sunday and a few times I kicked myself for throwing too low, but it doesn't care, 5' off the ground is just fine.

Threw my Air Saint some today. I liked it pretty well, it did decent in the little breeze we had. Considering that there was some breezyness, and being a new disc to me and all, I was liking it's flight pretty well, looking forward to working it out some more on a longer course Saturday.

I have a GL saint. I ordered an opto air a couple days ago. I know the options are more stable than their GL counterparts. But how are the opto airs flying compared to the regular optos? More stable than GL but less than opto?

I have both, Opto and Opto Air Saints. I don't notice any difference in flight or stability, only that the Opto Air needs less effort, naturally.

Awesome that's what I wanted to hear. I wanted the opto stability. I figured I'd try the air and if I didn't like it I'd just get a regular opto. Thanks.

I haven't thrown my Opto Air a ton still yet, but I really like it. Diamonds have been my favorite drivers possibly for a while now. The Air Saint, when I throw it flat will show a turn, then a decent fade. If I'd rate a Diamond between -2 to -3 on turn and a +.5 to +1 on fade, my air saint would be a -.5 to -1 on turn and a +2 to +3 on fade. This is throwing them in the 320-330ish range. It does gentle sweeping hyzers well, and it has enough meat to not be destroyed by the wind.

If there would be a poll I think this would be hard to beat for disc of the year. What would compete with it? Roc3? Vibram whatever?
