The main quandary is choosing a stable driver or two to complement the Champ Leopard and Star Valk or Star Roadrunner. I play a mix of tightly-wooded and wide-open courses, so I need something that can handle headwinds, tree hits, and my less-than-pristine forehand.
Here are the discs I am considering. If the budget was not limited I would simply order all and compare . . .
Teebird 150 Star: I have two on the way from trades. I love Teebirds, but when new they need to be thrown fairly hard to fly right. Throwing hard and hitting gaps may not be the best combination.
Eagle-X 150 Star: Eagles have always been shorter than Teebirds for me, but maybe I haven’t given them enough time or punishment. Also need to be thrown hard.
Eagle-L 150 Champion (11x, if it makes a difference): I have never thrown these. Would they complement or overlap with the Champ Leopard and Star Teebird?
Northman 150 VIP: Also never thrown but intriguing – I am picturing something between the Eagle and River. I do worry about a large-diameter disc in the wind, though. Has anyone thrown this in 150?
What to do, what to do?
Valk and Northman overlap. My 154 Northman is the domiest i could find and it turns just a little on full power and fades a little at the end. Overall very Valk like flight. My 175 Star Valk is fairly new and it fades more than my 154 domey Northman. The Northman is about 10' shorter for me on average than full weight Valks. For me the 150 TB isn't that much shorter than the 154 Northman. I haven't thrown a fresh TB for a while so i can't compare exactly because mine has lost some fade and ain't as HSS as a new one. Throwing 410' occasionally skipping to 440' with warp speeders. Warp speed discs at 150 are fun if wild.
