It's because my discs don't respect me. But they certainly respect the Saint...
I've been very happy with my GL saint. I plan on getting an opto but I just got an spd that I'm very happy with so far. Opto saint and my spd would seem to over lap.

Does anyone have any side angle pictures that show the profile/thickness of the rim and overall domeyness of the disc?

Stupid question...and I know my answer is in this thread somewhere, but I don't want to read thru the whole thing...I have a 170g GL saint that I love. Flies with a slight turn to dead straight with a soft fade at the end. Now if I was to get a 174 opto saint...would it be crazy to hope for an "avenger" type flight characteristic? No turn, straight flight, with a good dependable fade at the end...as a good hyzer disc? I throw my GL saint right now a little over 350'.

You'll have to thrown that 174 opto flat or maybe with a bit of anhyzer at first, but it will eventually beat in to what you want. Might be better to get a heavier GL.

Your saying that a 174g opto could give me a "more" overstable flight pattern than that of an avengers flight pattern?

it will be pretty close. Variations in the Saint mold might land you a more overstable one. Then again, some are pretty flippy from the get go.

I know i'm talking in circles. Why not get another avenger?

If you go heavier opto you will get less turn, still a little turn. if thrown with a small hyzer no turn. the opto in my opinion have an earlier more abrupt fade. They can compliment each other well. I use a gold line for hyzer flips and down hill/tailwind driver, and the opto that i have i can shape more lines because the fade is more pronounced. Never thrown an avenger. hope this helps.
