Default Saint or Striker

I like both equally well, just can't decide which to add to the bag. Any help that Mau sway my decision would be appreciated.

I feel like a striker is more controllable in the wind.

Saint is more of a line shaper.

I found that to be true for my self as well. I just wish they had a disc that would hold true to both qualities.

a good striker will be a good bit more stable than the saint. The saint will have a ton more glide and once you dial that in will have great distance potential and remain very controllable. The striker is more stable and harder to get out as far but it really depends on the striker you have. the strikers have been all over the board with inconsistency. I will agree also that the striker would be a better choice in the wind.

I've got both in my bag and the Striker is my go to over the Saint in almost every situation, but I still love them both. The Striker can be finessed into a good turnover line with more control in my experience. I just feel like my Striker is a touch more consistent and more reliable in the wind. Guess I'm saying Striker over Saint.

And just wondering, but what're y'all's Strikers and Saints like? Really flat GL and reaaalllly domey GL respectively. Just heard of the variances in molds.

I have a 168 flat GL Striker and it is the most "Teebird" like driver I've tried. Thrown flat it is usually darn straight with reliable fade. In a decent wind it will turn some. I haven't been getting along with it lately though and I've actually put an esp Cyclone in the bag for most of my striker shots.

Only Saint I have much experience with is an opto air that I am really starting to like. I suppose it is probably
something more like a broken in Eagle of some sort. It has good turn and reliable fade. Not suitable for headwinds at all.

In my bag there is room for both. I'll be trying a heavier Saint in the near future hopefully.
