Thanks for the input guys!

Agreed. I'm guessing that I won't ever be throwing my TeeBirds to 400' in reality. The point of taking my PD out of the bag for a while is just to see if it's even a possibility for me. Even if I only push it from 330' to 360' I'll be happy with the improvement. I guarentee the PD will end up back in the bag once I feel that I've got my form where I want it, or if I go to a longer course.

I see your point here as well, but while 400' with a Teebird is my lofty goal, I'm certainly not there yet. Currently, the XL is my stable control driver because with my current power it still flies straight as an arrow for me. As I make progress toward my goal I'll adjust my bag accordingly, and hopefully drop the XL in favor of something more stable. I would imagine that a star teebird wouldn't be considered an overstable driver either with that kind of power
