Got my Opto Saint late last night (thanks Marketplace), and it's beautiful.

Hoping to do some hagiography later today.

I have a Saint, and as of right now, I sadly like my Champ Teebird more. I just got it a couple of days ago so it hasn't really been thrown too much, but when I have thrown it, I haven't been all that impressed (minus the ridiculous glide of course).

My question is, should I try throwing it with less power than I would my Teebird as you suggest? As a side note, I can't bomb, I'm only hitting 280-300 with the Teebird, so if that goes into any answers, I'd appreciate the insight!

I would say that the tee bird can handle a little more mustard than the saint. All lat64 discs prefer smooth not hard to go far. do you have an opto or gold line. There is a significant difference between the 2. Opto is more HSS and LSS where the gold line is less on both. The gold line will show a ton of turn and may not come back. The opto has a little turn and always wants to fight back.

Smooth is far especially with lat64

I'm about where you are at mm. I found my opto saint to be less stable(more understable?) than my t-bird. That being said, if I hyzer flip the saint it goes wayyyyyy further than my teebird. I have had a handfull of throws go out to 390-420. If I throw it flat at full power it will eat dirt at 200-250ft. When I power down its the straightest disc I own out to 300 ft.

Sorry, forgot to add, it's GL. I definitely concur with the added mustard on the Teebird compared to the Saint.

I saw this yesterday when I threw my Saint. It glided nicely, but I knew it wasn't destined for great things and ate dirt. I guess I'll just consciously work on smooth. Might give them a try on more technical holes so I really have to concentrate on smooth.
