Stag vs Saint Pro? VIP/Opto instead of Tournament/GL?

Hate to make another thread after asking y'all about another disc, but I'm trying to decide if I want to get a Discmania FD2 in C-Line, Saint Pro, or Stag as a slower overstable disc. And would y'all prefer Opto/VIP or GL/Tourn or both?

My current overstable discs I use are:
XXX (gl)
Trident (gl) - I use this much more than the XXX
Shark3 (champion)
PD Freak (S-Line)
Star Destroyer
Moonshine King

I wanted to get a slower overstable disc and need help deciding which one...

Saint Pro and Stag were both big disappointments...the hss just isn't there even though they fade well. They're ok at medium power or when the wind is low. Haven't gotten a chance to throw the FD2 yet but I've heard good things. Hard to beat a good champ Teebird, honestly. Of the ones on your list, I'd probably get an opto Saint Pro but depending on your power it might overlap a bit with your PD.

I just lost one of my Teebirds the other day, left it on the course like a dumbass towards the end of an unforgiving round. I just might have to get a Champ Teebird. I have one already but the wife uses it and it's a much lighter disc than I like to throw.

Get you a FD and an FD2/2nd run FD. Great combo to sit under the PD. I use to miss my cycle of teebirds but any longer.

I wouldn't say the Saint Pro is overstable depending on how far you are throwing them, but they are what I would choose. For overstable at the same speed I prefer the Felon, but again that is for my arm speed and distance. Overall I think the Saint Pro is a great disc.

I wonder how the FD compares with the Leopard, slightly faster and more stable?

I actually looked at the Felons also but I'm kind of leaning towards an FD2 because I already have the PD which is similar to a Felon but faster with less fade and a TeeRex that I haven't used because I want to dye it first.

Depends on the plastic but the FD flies how I always wanted the leopard too. Super straight with minimal fade. Not much faster and about the same stability depending on the run and plastic. The thing I liked more with the FD was discmania descriptions between each run I knew exactly what I was getting. I always had to fondle and try out different leopards to get one I liked. Also I found that once I got a good cycle of FDs and PDs I could drop the TD I was using as well. But it depends on what you're using that disc for.

FD is more stable than most Leopards, but I've had a couple champ Leopards that were dead straight like a TL...they never really beat in to what a Leopard is supposed to be like. Teerex is a weird disc, but if you've got a good one they make a fantastic really-high-wind headwind driver.
