When I lost my beat in viper, (someone just called me to return it!!!!) I tried switching to the firebird. It just isn't the same. It doesn't glide as well and does not skip as well either (maybe a DX vs star plastic deal). I use the vipers for skipping around corners under trees, sharp hooking approachs, etc... Maybe at some point when I start to get MaxD near the 400' point and I can really crank the firebird out there, I might be able to replace the vipers.

Vipers are good discs.

I am absolutely in love with these DX teebirds. Just got them yesterday right before I was headed out to the course. They glide and stay straight forever. They are awesome at holding the hyzer line I put it on. I have managed to cut out 2 discs off my bag while increasing the functionality of the bag. Cant beat that :)

Threw a sidewinder for the first time yesterday. I may be able to remove both valks and leapords with this disc. Gonna throw for a few more days before I make a decision.

Sidewinder is less consistent than the Valk and Leopard. Keep them in the bag.

Yeah, it could just be the difference in Star vs DX plastic. You might try the Firechikn in DX, and if it doesn't have the glide you're looking for, try some hot water technique to add some dome to it.

I really like your bag setup. I could easily rock the same rig you've got - I've actually considered putting my DX Viper into my bag as a slower overstable.

Yea the sidewinder is a fun disc but its nothing I would want to continue to use. I will probably keep it in my truck to goof around with. I fixed a few things in my form and now my ch. valkyrie is now turning exactly how I want it.

Thank you. I love the viper. Definitely one of my money discs. When I pull it out of the bag I have 98.7% confidence it will go where I want to put it :)

The DX Teebirds are already flying straight without much fade, but then again I do play 12-15 rounds a week(had them about 2 weeks) so maybe they are breaking in fast? If they stay like this I will be super happy, but if they start to get way more flippy I will be displeased. I have added A LOT of D to my throws but not enough for these guys to be this straight. I threw my 170 DX about 350' pin high on the basket, but 20 foot to the left(lhbh) of the OB. The disc flew straight as can be.

Made a HUGE mistake today. I threw a wizard for the first time. The only thing that sucks is I just started getting aviar backups.

The wizards are absolutely a dream. My range with them is about 50ft. I bought couple of magics to mess around with, we will see how it goes. I have been messing around with flex shots for the first time with the champ teedbird. Definitely not accurate, but worked out on some long wide open holes.
