More talk about the Saint is needed, yes! Here or in the Saint thread?
I'm glad you mentioned the Viking. Bought two Opto Saints (172/175g). They're pretty identical in flight. They kinda reminded me of my good old Champ Valkyrie (very stable for a Valk) that I threw in a pond a while ago. I was hitting them somewhere at 100 meters, thrown flat or a gently hyzer, low lines. The flightpath was straight or a tiny S-curve, always a dependable fade in the end. Glided well if I was able to keep the nose down.
My form is pretty shitty at the moment. If I had the time to do some field practice, I'm pretty sure I could push them 10 meters further (that would be like 360ft, right?).
I think the Saint gives controlled distance for us maxing @ 350'-375', just like Latitude promises. Turso wrote that they become very flippy if you push them much over 400'. Well, not my problem.
I have tried one (just one!) GL Saint. It was noticeably more understable than the Optos I have. Still a nice disc, probably a bit longer too.
