Got a couple saints, they fly well, nice and stable. Idk if this makes sense but i actually disliked the glide on them, they were hard to gauge the distance on them and often went too far. So i dont know just yet if it'll make the bag, mabye on holes with a good tailwind. Its one of the few lat discs, however, that i prefered the opto. The GL was really slick due to the humidity but the opto was stoopid grippy.

MyThrow, local company team. We have about a dozen players and a few of them are on GGGT's team also. Paid entry to any PDGA event I want, so I can't complain.

Got a little more time with mine over the weekend, but we had freak calm winds so I still haven't gotten to see wind performance. It pretty much behaved the same as when I first tested it, but since I had more time to warm up and throw, I was getting better overstability from it...I must have been a little oaty that first night. Stretched it out past 400' a few times and it had more of that Viking flight than the Valky flight I saw initially. That said, those effects make my opinion stand that it isn't a Teebird with true overstability, and I don't expect it to do well in our normal 15-25mph winds. Still a great disc, though. If they prove to be somewhat consistent in runs I think it'll stay in the bag and probably bump out a driver or two.

Rather than read 650 pages of commentary on the Saint, I'm just going to throw in my two cents. Bought a blue sparkle Opto Saint from Scott Papa to "celebrate" Dalaiwood's last day, and it quickly kicked several other discs out of my bag. It didn't really kick them out, but if I can learn to make it do what it did for me yesterday and today on a consistent basis? It will be my go to driver for holes that are too long for the River. I've never thrown a disc that does what this one does for me. It holds a beautiful long S-curve when I snap it off with a RHFH, and when I throw RHBH it flies dead straight (or very slightly understable) before fading like the overstable disc that it claims to be. I don't know what numbers it's been given, but I'd probably call it a 9/6/-.5/2. Once I know it better it will probably kick both the Beast and the Surge out of my bag. Once I can make it do whatever I want it will probably remove the Firebird too. Apparently those Swedes hand their kids a guitar and a book on plastic chemistry and aerodynamics as soon as they pop out, because they're better than everyone at music and making discs.

i've been quiet in this thread because quite frankly i didn't want to buy into the hype. But today i threw my 173 orange GL Saint and have fallen comletely in love. This disc flies exactly how i imagined the FLOW would fly before they were released.

Great disc. Hyzer flip out of the box. Will hold that very long anhyzer. Will also hold that forward fade if put on a high hyzer. Great disc!

It is the perfect compliment to my OLFs. GREAT DISC! this disc will be as popular as the River is one year from now.


EDIT:
PS.... GREAT DISC

This pretty much sums up my first impression. I got mine today and only made it out for a quick 9, out of the 4 throws I had (the first one was weak, the second hit a tree) two were easily among the best I've thrown for those holes. Very very straight with a little bit of left to right movement.

Bumped one of my TB's out of the bag for the time being.
