Define noodle arm. I just want to make sure we are speaking the same language. Perhaps we need to start specifying noodle types. For example, 200-250 = angel hair; 250-275 = linguini; 275-300 = lo mein, etc.

And here is mine. It looks pink in the photo, but it is definitely more toward the salmon side in person. Rim definitely feels thinner than a Striker. Will report later once my daughter wakes up from a nap.

Strike that, having photo problems.

Angel Hair I guess.

I am a varying noodle arm. Progressing a little this week so I'll give results from last few rounds.

RHBH off tee. Been throwing River and Diamond about 275-300'. Hit about 3 drives today around 325'.

Thumber consistently 275-325' depending on shot needed an angles.

RHBH off tee with Pure hits about 225-250' in field. Probably usable from 200-225' on course.

RHBH mids - Fuse, Core or Warship probably consistently in the 250 range, but have been getting Warship and Core out to 275' recently. Occassional 300' greatness, but not often.

Thumber is my best shot, and most people joke that I should abandon the rest of my game, and simply throw thumbers and putters.

I AM A NOODLE ARM DAMMIT.

OK, so we speak the same language. You have a bit more D than me, but we are in the same range.

Here's a link to my Saint

Yeah, definitely check it out in person, though. I was expecting more of a bubblegum opaque pink, like my Opto Pure. This one is almost like a coral/salmon hue. Still a nice disc, and it will pop out when it is in the air.

Anyone get sparkles in their GL? I had some in mine. Looks sick.

Yup, my GL orange-red from DN has flakes. Kinda cool. Definitely wasn't expecting that. My pink Opto is exactly like onemilemore's.

They feel [pretty good in the hand, too. No idea when I can throw them...still working now.

Ok so i got a GL 168 and a Opto 172 saint today. I went to a course and threw them when ever i'd throw a teebird and i noticed that they were not going as far as the teebirds. the teebirds out preformed them until i got to the last two holes and the saints crushed going down hills and through tight gaps. They glided forever and held the line i put them on. The opto had more fade and HSS and if i really cranked on the GL it would flip a little. I will defiantly test these bad boys more.
