Flight Rating Category Value What Innova says:
The Firebird is our most popular upwind distance driver. The Firebirdís combination of superior speed and stability make it possible to throw drives into the wind with confidence. An excellent disc for throwing long range flex shots. A favorite of sidearm and overhead throwers, too. This disc is designed for professional level players.

Review: This is another poor choice in nomenclature by Innova. It should not be called a Firebird, as it is not the same mold and does not fade hard. Instead, it is very straight and surprising easy to manipulate. This disc has become my main driver and is really taking strokes off my score. I recommend that experienced players unfamiliar with this disc give it a try.

Review: Dude, i went into Walgreens and saw they had discs. I thought they would be expensive, but when i checked, Pro and Champion plastic discs were $13.99. I was freakin pumped. I set out lookin for a sweet champion tye dye disc, but the only one that was my ideal weight was an Eagle- not a big fan. I decided to look for a sweet firebird, but it was only in pro plastic, so i questioned durability. My friend liked his champion firebird, so i bought it.

My first day out with it I nailed my drives with this disc. Previous reviews say no sidearm, but if you through it with a little edge or a hyzer it totally rocks. It was goin just as far as my orc, which is my disc of choice. I dont know why no one else could throw this disc well. O yea, and durability, not a problem. I toatally slammed it into like 3 trees at the fasted part of each throw and came away with a scratch about hardly visible to my eye.

I would reccomend this disc to people with average arms and due to my good expirience, sidearm throwers. Im no longer wasting money on star plastic for durability and grip, pro is the way to go. THE PRO FIREBIRD IS SWEET
