Goddammit, I cant wait for spring - I have an opto Saint, a Volt, but I ain't throwing them in the snow all bundled up. I want the freedom of loose clothing, and the comfort of warm air. I'll continue to throw my ribboned beast and shark until further noitice.

Same question I asked in the Volt thread: which should I pair with my predator, saint or volt? I have around 400 ft distance.

This should cover almost all of my drives.

What are you guys pairing Saints with?

Nothing that I can see it will fit in there. It's a tick less stable than the avenger.

Definitely seems like a Saint will fall between the XL and Avenger. Not sure how stable your XL is.

Can you park 4 gold with the XL? or are you still left with an upshot?

EDIT: for me the Saint is more like a slightly beat X Avenger. just not as long as an X Avenger.

The Saint is pretty straight w/minimal fade. I'd say in this case, the 9,6,-1,2 numbers are dead on...well, maybe 8,6,-1,2. Not as fast as other speed 9 drivers, like Roadrunner, OLS, Sidewinder, etc.
