IMO, on one needs a Teebird, but they're super nice to have and worth carrying.

Your leopards should cover #1


most leopards will turn if you put any nuttage on them. most teebirds won't turn unless you put like 580' of power on em.

If I crank the leos they do turn, but a little hyzer usually takes care o that. But most of the time when I take one out I'm in the woods and not throwing with 100 percent power. I DONT have 580 power or even close to that.

That's the point. You can throw a Teebird at full power (assuming a clean throw), get a really straight flight and not have to worry about it turning over. They're great for distance shots that go straght, which is a nice shot to have.

Dudes if I was ever sponsered by Discraft this would be my bag setup:


X Avenger (Got to be careful with it though for Max D)
Tsunami
D Cyclone
D/Z Wasp
D Challenger

The Tsunami will replace the Teebird, Z Predator, and the Z Avenger for me. Tsunami's are SICK! The reason I would not throw a Teebird on discraft is because I would like the full benefits for being on the team because I know that they don't really care what you throw as long as you throw a couple or a few of their discs, but you wont get the full benefits if you throw something innova or something else.

5 Molds for me.

X Avengers are still pretty controllable but get a bit unpredictable when beaten in more. So I'm learning how to control flippy discs like a TL and an XL right now.

My bag looks similar to what masterbeato's Discraft bag would be except I have a Z Predator for very overstable and a Z Avenger for moderately overstable. Maybe I'll have to give one of those sick Tsunamis a try.

Very true, I used to throw an esp XL (which is leopardish) as my straight driver but switched to the DX teebird. I can get it to fly just as straight but with less worry (if any) of it turning over whereas the XL was more touchy if i didnt put the perfect amount of hyzer on it.
