I'm sure I'll grab a few of these. I admit, I'm one who lashed out at all the warp speed stuff that was coming out. So I'm definitely excited about a new fairway, even though I wish it was going to be closer to a speed 7, since Teebirds & Eagles make up a bunch of my shots

this does not appear to have been posted yet but discgolfsweden has the following flight ratings for this disc

Speed 8
Glide 6
HSS 0
LSS 3

so even though a 1.9cm wing it is apparently a Spd 8 (maybe a thicker nose profile?)
0 turn would be solid as would the 3 fade
and if it does have that extra glide while being truly HSS of 0 then perhaps this might be a great disc after all

it must be admitted that those flight ratings make this an intriuging disc no?

Still QOLF overlap.

But then again, Havocs were originally rated overstable.

So, a notch faster, and a notch more stable, than a Teebird, with more glide?

Give me this in EZE plastic and I might need smelling salts.

Exactly!

Might beat into a killer disc.

At first I thought this would be a great combination, but after thinking about it, I am not so sure I would want this. The runs of Strikers from 6 to 18 months ago were very Predish. They had a little turn, maybe -1, more like -0.5, so initially the Saint sounds straighter, but with the fades so close in similarities, where would the Saint truly excel where the Strikers would not? Tunnel shots maybe. Someone with mild OAT issues? Okay, I can buy that. But unless this has some insane glide like the River, I do not know if they are really accomplishing much with this disc.

What I am ultimately looking for is a disc that can handle some power (and therefore clean but not necessarily perfect form) without turning and without fading. Hnadling tunnels shots are a definite must, but when I am looking for placement, it is so much easier for me to throw fast and level than flexing an overstable disc and finding the right anhyzer angle or throwing level (thus keeping it low to the ground) with a hyzer for a hyzerflip (not talking about a hyzer spike).

I already use the Axis, TeeBird, and Sword which have the numbers I am looking for, so I am not at a loss if the Saint does not live up to the comparison of being like a TeeBird. Yet I love Opto and VIP plastic, especially the day glow or dark blue colors. They really stand out. I use Star TeeBirds because I do not like Champion that much (although I am trying to break in a new Champ TeeBird because I like the dye and the weight). Having a Lat/ Westside option would be awesome.
