Vibram? Please! After throwing their glideless hunks of rubber they call putters, I never bothered buying anything else from them. I threw a few shots with a friends and wasn't impressed with those discs either. I forget which ones exactly.

I can't get used to their plastic either. Also don't like the logo plug on top of the disc...not exactly aerodynamic.

Just curious as to what you guys are pairing your Saints with. My go to Opto Saint is beginning to get flippy when throwing for max D (starting to stretch passed the 300 mark often). I just purchased a new Opto from Marshall Street to put in the rotation. I know that it might sound funny, but I have started throwing a champ teebird as my more stable counterpart to the Saint. This should cover almost all of my drives.

What are you guys pairing Saints with?

That makes me feel better... I mean they are both supposed to be straight flying discs.... but I like to be able to control the amount of fade by using one versus the other. Also, I have never had a problem with wind flipping over a champ teebird.

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.
I'm seeing the same thing with my Opto Saint and Volt. The Volt does seem better in heavy winds, but it's a bit heavier than my Saint (couldn't get the Volt that light). I've picked up a GL saint that I'm testing out, mainly holding onto as a backup.
