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: I picked up a 172g Star Firebird, and I'm really digging it. I've liked the Firebird mold for a while and tried all different plastics, but this tops them all. The Champion Firebird was my favorite for a long while, but I didn't like how hard it was -- it flew the best for me, but I never really liked the feel in my hand. The Star flies just as good if not better than my Champ, but has a very soft and flexible flight plate. The disc is also very flat -- I didn't expect the Star version to be as flat as other versions because of the plastic, but they pulled it off. I like to throw this for forehand rollers, overhand shots, into headwinds, when I need a big hyzer, or wide open shots 325-350' where I can launch it to the right with some height and let the disc work back. Surprisingly, it's also great for skip shots, which I hadn't expected because of the softness of the plastic. Very durable, good feel, and that classic Firebird flight.
