Default latitude 64 jade vs saint air

Every time it seems when I buy a new disc, I notice another one that I like just as much. I've got the jade and like it so far (2 rounds played with it) but the saint air seems sweet as well. Any thoughts on the pair?

I throw both, and I think the Air Saint is longer - mine has also beaten into somewhat flippy.

The Jade is a nice s-curve machine. Mine hasn't shown any signs of flippiness yet, but it isn't as beaten in as the Air Saint.

If that was directed towards me, I've used the Diamond a lot longer, and have never thrown a disc that has a higher distance to effort ratio.

I'll be interested to see what the Jade beats into, but right now my well-seasoned Diamond is great for hyzer-flips on tunnel shots and tailwind drives.

Agreed! I use the Jade as a less-stable complement to the AIR Saint. Perfect for carving up wooded fairways with s-curves, hyzer-flips and smooth anhyzer lines...

I also use the AIR Saint Pro for the more-stable complement to the AIR Saint. This trio handles cover all my Fairway / Control drivers needs quite well.

I'm really enjoying my jade, I'm able to get sweet S curves out of with normal effort. My Local shop has the normal saint but not the air. Is there a considerable difference between the two? I think I saw some in the low 160's.
