Looks pretty good. I think you need a very overstable driver, though. Might I suggest a Z or ESP Predator?

To be honest, I lack the arm/snap to keep the Star Starfire straight. I don't really need a Pred/Firebird type disc. Thanks for the thought, tho.

For some situations pigs are life savers and you've certainly got the D to get even more use than flying around obstacles. Have you removed the flashing from the Star Starfire? I haven't and it's a very stable disc for me with the flashing.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I'm not sure. It didn't feel to me that it had much at all to start with. There's faint vestiges of it, but it isn't really a factor. My SL's don't always flip for me so you can see that I don't really have the skill to throw most discs out there like they're supposed to be. I've had several discs with ridiculous amounts of flashing, mostly on my mids. All 3 of my Star Sharks had quite a bit of flashing as did my Star Stingray. Rather than trim it off, I generally just throw them as-is until the flashing wears off from landings.

A couple of additions, no new molds really but it's making field practice easier :)

I have been struggling with the putter bit and am in the same boat. I would seriously keep a deeper putter like an Avair around bc it will eventually teach you better putting, I'm still waiting

IMO, it's easier to control a Pred/Firebird than a Starfire. You don't really need a ton of snap because you aren't trying to throw it straight. What you'll use it for mostly is spike hyzers and hyzers into headwinds. The very overstable driver is more important than the moderately overstable driver.

Alright, I broke down. I was in money spending mode today and they had a Firebird in the exact configuration I like to throw.

It's hard when you find your weight and color, isn't it?

I would recomend getting a light firebird or predator. You'll find times when the Starfire won't be stable enough to hug a hyzer tight enough for you...

zealot: uuh... 171g firebird just added there :)

rehder: my tl's go about 320-330 <killed one 340 about 5 weeks ago>, the SL's go 330-340 <maxed out at 370 about 5 weeks ago>

Still recovering from the finger injury, just got my first right handed throws in 5 weeks in yesterday. Can't throw mids yet as the sharpness of the rim rubs right over the scar.
