Go with gold line all day. It has better glide and won't overlap with the avenger as much.

EDIT: for me the Saint is more like a slightly beat X Avenger. just not as long as an X Avenger.
From the gold tee i usually land near the bridge as long as i didnt shank it. or release too early trying not to shank it.

okay with your distance the Saint should put you right up under the basket. and mine have been pretty true to the flight numbers (-1,2). Speed feels slower but I have been playing with more warp speed stuff this winter.

well i can throw the xl longer than that but from the gold tee i tend to throw it too low probably due to the hole being slightly downhill.

I hardly pull the XL out on the tee pad though.

if i really crank the xl on hole 1 blue at j street i end up halfway between hole 1 and hole 6 basket.

I also did throw a friends opto saint from in front of the shelter near hole 1 and landed near 7's blue pad. I didn't get a good pull on it because i had a blood blister forming on my middle finger so it hurt to let it go. all that i can remember about the flight was that it turned a little but once it stopped turning it went straight until it faded out and landed.

this was at johnson street as well.

This should cover almost all of my drives.

What are you guys pairing Saints with?
I pair both my saints to both the opto diamond and xxx. For me with my trios, I can create any line I need. I don't like to carry many molds, therefore I've learned to create pretty much any line I need.
