I never looked or noticed it in my hand, but do the saints have a plus-y ish rim? That might contribute to the fairway feel?

Slightly tapered, but not as much as some of their other discs.

I literally threw my opto air in the garbage today. I got it a few days before Christmas. It started out with a long turn for 330 feet no fade. Now it's just dumb flippy. 150 feet turns and lands on its lid. This isn't oat cause I was still throwing my beat dx Leo great. Love my GL saint but this is just damn disappointing.

Hit my first ace of the year with my GL Saint today.

Hole 18 Rotary Park Huntington WV.

I bought this disc months ago and used it for a while. I let my dad borrow it when he lost his driver and i just put it back in the bag a couple weeks ago.

I thought you were gonna say your shot landed in a dumpster.

Sorry to hear that - what weight?

I've never bothered with the Air. I had a Sparkle Opto Saint, but I retired it to the shelf because I bought it at Dalaiwood and it's a first run. Been throwing a GL though and it's threatening a lot of other discs in my bag. They're all terrified to death that they're going to lose their spots in the rotation, so all of my discs are behaving better than ever. I've tried threatening discs before, but it never worked. It's because my discs don't respect me. But they certainly respect the Saint...

But, they are the closest thing ive found to a beat S-PD, which IMO is the best kind. I can throw my main PD in the 380-420 range fairly consistently and pretty accurately. Time will tell if the Saint offers me the same thing, but if its even 80% of what a seasoned PD is, Ill prolly make the switch. Its taken me 3 years, 1.5 years, and 1 year respectively to get my current PDs where they are, and idk if i have the will to work more of them in if I lost one, or when its time to retire them.
What weight are those? I have a S-PD I've been working in for 8 months now...still no turn on it.

Let me ask...has everyone's experience been that the GL saints beat to understable within a couple months?...or is that just mine?
