i threw the saint today...goldline and opto. man this disc is very sweet. reminds me and a buddy of a jls/tb type isc. feels great and has a moderate dome. both are lazer straight with the gl having a tiny bit less stability but not overly flippy. i was hucking it on lazers until it lightly faded at the end. i even threw some fh shots back and forth to my buddy and its a great disc for fh. super straight STILL and has great glid. i was fhing them 300-350 or so on tight lines with little turn.

honestly if i didnt have pds i would seriously throw this disc. it might be the new disc "smell" but i believe alot of peeps will be happy with it. great fairway driver for sure.

on the few bh drives i had..i was getting them 350 ish easy. i was more suprised with my fh shots though because my forehand kinda sucks and i dont really use it enough to get good d . today...the saint proved otherwise

Booter, how does this compare to the fd you were testing more stable? And as a former champ glow gazelle thrower, are my gazelles going to be in trouble?

Booter, how's it compare with a Viking? Or, how close is it to a JLS?

jd..id say its very close to glow gazs. i used to throw gazelles and its very straight with some hss and a small bit of lss. its definitely more stable than a fd. has good glide easy to get a clean release with. itll male a good river compliment for sure its actually very similar to a river in feel kinda. only its not large diameter and more hss.

lots of people will like it..i would bet on that. ifs similar to the jls in that its just a super straight flier than can take some power behind it but still workable . im still amazed at how well it takes to fh shots. i expected turning more than bh but it was pretty identical to bh throws that if it did turn..it was coming out of it.

my beat pd is pretty close to it in terms of flight.

i havmt thrown strikers in a while nor have a i thrown a viking in a while. but it could be close to a vike.

Thanks for the review Boot...
Extra stable River, eh....

You know...expectations sure are a b***h: I must have read 20 + posts in the last couple years by people begging for a "freak stable River" Now that it may actually be a reality....people are freaking out and soiling their pants because it isnt the OS disc they ordered. But...L64 helped create and maintain those expectations too...so there's that

All hail the freak stable river WITH river like glide!
