I agree with almost all of the above*. The main thing I've found is that the Saint is WAAAAY touchier in the wind. If that thing is in the air and someone in a three county radius is blowing out birthday candles, the disc is going to turn and never fade back.

Other than that? Love it. Still have a big soft spot for my Vikings, though.

*Hee hee, you said longer teebird

I thought I had enough Saints, but then I saw the new stamp they put on this Recycled line one;

Yeah the Saint sucks in the wind. I was worried for a few days that the PD's and Teebirds of my bag would have a competitor...but absolutely no way if the wind is above 2mph.

Latitude waaay overadvertises its discs' stability in general IMO. If you were to consider "notches" in stability (using Innova as reference - an Archangel being Notch 0 and the most overstable meathook Firebird possible being a notch 10 for fairway drivers) Latitude's discs are 1.5-2 notches more understable than advertised on average.

I read to about page 28 before I gave up and skipped to the end haha, how does the saint perform for you guys with bigger arms? Do you find it more in the control driver slot or your turnover/anny type disc? What weights/plastic do you prefer? For reference when referring "bigger arms" high speed drivers 400-450 golf lines and max D 450+.

my question is, is there ANY reason for me to get a saint if I can already get my star sidewinder out to about 325ft in a dead straight line?

Sidewinder is touchy in the wind, but not excessively for me. How do these two discs compare in the wind? Which is better/worse?

Feldbeard in his interview after placing 2nd in worlds this year: "I started using my Recycled Saint for soft bends and straight shots. It honestly had an in the circle percentage of about 90 percent." He said it was one of his main discs. Seems like the love for the saint has finally extended to at least one pro out there.

I recently started throwing an Air Saint, and it won't be leaving the bag anytime soon. It instantly became my longest disc I can throw for accuracy.

I have a GL Saint and even though it says "overstable control driver" on it I say it's more on the stable side as I was trying to get it to S curve and it would not come back from an anhyzer. I am not sure where this disc fits into my game right now. Maybe I'll try an Opto and see how its stability compares.
