Got my 173 GL today. Won't get to throw it until tomorrow but feels great. Not as pearly as most but it's for throwing.

Opened up a 164 Pink and a 172 sparkle blue today, both opto. 5-10 throws each only so far. The 164 handled a little headwind better than I expected. So far so good.

Alright, here is my sub-300 power take on the Saint:

Leopard : Teebird :: River : Saint

For me, the Saint flew extremely similar lines to my 167 12x Champ Teebird. Straight with a healthy fade. If I didn't snap it enough, it would stall out early. Honestly, I didn't see a Jude difference between the two, except for on low lasers, where the Saint out-glided the Teebird. On some throws, the Saint went a touch longer. But not much.

It seems that this is definitely a fairway driver, but it lacked the wow-factor I experienced when throwing the River, Fuse, and Warship for the first time. That said, I am going to let it compete with the Teebird for a bit in sort of a battle royale.

The unintended consequence of my field work today, though, was that I finally unlocked the potential of my 157 P-PD. Holy awesome, Batman! This thing was outdistancing my Teebird and Saint by 50 feet. Good stuff!

Overall, if you want a River complement and an all-Latitude bag, grab a Saint. If you already have Teebirds, it's up in the air.

Those light weight discs can do a lot more than most people think. I wonder what a 157 saint would do?

light weight discs are great but can get a away easier and will get pushed around in the wind. I have gone to lesser weight discs and really like them but have noticed how touchy they can be if not thrown close to the way you want.

Cool, I have never seen anything like it.
I think that pic turned out amazing, especially a single quick shot from my phone
