How would a Saint compare to a Z Stalker and Star Teebird for 300ft throws? By what I see I gather it will be longer than the Stalker with a small turn and slight fade. Less stable than the Teebird but more stable than a TL. Almost like a straighter ESP Cyclone.

Basically, I'm looking for a longer Stalker. Opto or Goldline?

I would say get both. An opto flys like a faster domey stable stalker but with more glide and the GL's are like flat broken in stalkers but faster.

I would say opto for what you are looking for. I have had my opto turn and burn on me a few times and they are more stable than the goldline from what I hear. I find myself reaching for my saint more and more. Great disc.

yeah gold line is a different beast than the opts. I would say go opto all day. the gold line is way less hss. the fade is there but way later in its flight. The gold line needs a ton of room r to l to get its flight.

I will say that all my opts seem to be identical in dome and plh. the gold lines are a little less domey than the opts, but all my gl are the same too.

Honelsty may as well be two different discs in my opinion. opto is the way to go if its your only saint.

the 2 Saints that I have are 168 GL and 169 Opto

I'm thinking of ordering a couple more another 168 GL for tailwind but to give me extra comfort in winds I was thinking of ordering 172+ Opto's

those of you with heavier Opto Saints how are they performing when there is wind?

This is a great post for you know your addicted to disc golf when..... Your phone autocorrects "it" to ti. Or you have disc golf on your brain so much you just automatically switch it without thought. Not giving you a hard time for misspelling it, just thought it was funny.

To your question, I find my opto strikers to be more over stable. Almost like a longer t-bird. My saint will almost get the same distance but it turns right way more before the fade and glide kick in. Rhbh.
