Still curious how this will handle a headwind, because that will be the key if it is going to replace the Bird.

From what Ive read, the Teebird is a bit more stable and slightly less glidey, so it will probably be a better choice than the Saint for shots into a headwind

My personal opinion is that since they are not as HSS as a Teebird, they will not be as good in the wind. You only have to watch that video of Hag-something to see that have quite a bit of turn. There may be more stable ones out there. Latitude is not that consistent. I found them to be a servicable fairway driver, but are not going to be as consistent as a Teebird. If they would only start molding Teebirds and Buzzzes in Opto, I'd be a happy person.

Kinda makes you wonder why Lat or someone doesn't throw away pride and simply do that. It makes sense unless lawyers and laws prevent it. But a slightly less stable Teebird with lots of glide is a still a very good thing. And for us sad, pathetic, non-400' throwers, it will work just fine.

Exactly. At my sub 300 power, this will probably be very Birdlike.

Nice. I will not be that lucky tomorrow. I am going to get nailed. And not in the good way.

I can't wait to get mine in tomorrow. Won't be able to throw em till Sunday but looking forward to it. I am looking for something teebird like but I wouldn't mind something a little less stable. Just hoping it is not to much like my aged olf 1.1's. Anyone that has thrown one also throw olf's? How do they compare?

my opto handled headwinds very well today, surprisingly so actually. Everyone I let throw it decided they needed one for their bag.
