Yeah, a Saint has a lot more glide than a Viking.

My previous post brought to you by : BEER!

The Saint has a TON more glide than the Viking.

The Viking (as thrown by me) has more FADE than the Saint.

Aaaaaaand....scene.

You know what, though? Maybe it's just my form, but the Saint LOOKED like it was cruising well past my Viking, but in reality it only landed MAYBE 5 - 7 feet further.

I switched between the two tonight when I played Crystal Lake and as similar as they are, there are also a lot of differences.

The Saint sure looked prettier in the air, though.

thats the definition of glide: how good the disc looks flying.

so then the saint definitely has more glide.

the saint is smooth if you will. gentle on the turn and the fade is also not too abrupt. the viking likes to move quick. the turn is earlier and the fade is sooner. i think the viking does better at straight lower shots. I remember the viking was supposed to be a longer teebird by design not just semantics. Also with the glide of the saint it should be easier to throw it farther, but will get touchy. the viking eats power and will only turn a little more and fade later if ripped on.

We still have to play! Mike at Glide always says, "...you know, Mr. Glass?"

And I nod and then see that half moon in my mind's eye.

Stupid work and kids (and beer).
