Checked mine out over lunch. They're 11x flat, quite grippy, and a bit firmer than the 11x FBs I have. Overall opinion = $$$$$$$$$$$$. I haven't thrown them yet but I'd expect them to be at least 11x stable, maybe a bit more so.

stiff... thank gawd. i was hearing that these were wet pancakes. pretty stoked to get mine in.


If you are not a fan, let me know and I will trade/buy them off you.


hmm... just got em, very rubbery and flexy... not vibram burrito but maybe soft JK... the flight plate bends and twists with just a standard fan grip. i'll let ya know.

The glow firebirds are Beefy....i throw XXX and firebirds! i threw the new glow a few times today and it was beefy as an XXX might even be more stable. they are super hard and will last forever. i handed them around for a few pros just to look at and all they said was wow these are super stable....i really think the plastic will hold up since it is so stiff you get huge skips too. an amazing utility, thumber, roller, whatever these are the real deal. did i mention they are stable! i'll give it to some big arms too and see what the 500 to 600ft crowd thinks of the flight.

I got my fbs in today and damn. These are flat,stiff as hell and very nice. I did notice,when comparing to my other glows,that the tooling in these asia open fbs is different. It has the www in the tooling now. Not sure if 12x's are like that now since I don't throw those anyway. Anywho. Very tasty

I gave my ultra light Star Destroyers a throw
for a wide rimmed disc I was actually able to get some decent throws with these...better than any previous attempts with a Nuke or Katana (granted the Destroyer rim is slightly narrower)
I got 2 of my best/longest throws on my local course using these discs on Sunday
I will put that down to a function of the lighter weight allowing me to get some better rip on the disc
they will be of limited use...i.e. wide, open, and long holes or flex shot type of holes

for flat straight shots I can still do much better with my OLFs and X Crushes

but I was quite impressed

anyway, if you bought an ultra light SD and don't like it let me know

ok so its apparent now that the new glow fbs have a new core. it has www tooling . im hoping this is the reason these bad boys came out flat. and if they do production fbs like this with the new tooling and they stay beefy as fuck. i will no longer need to hunt 11x's down.

i saw C-PDs up there today
as well as Star Whippets
glow Ch. EX too

hadn't noticed those before, but the CPD being first in the lineup, i imagine it's a brand new offering.

so now all you guys who put your voodoo shit on me for having a 1-of-1 Dragon Chaser C-PD can buy some of your own


(you won't get my other one-offs!!)
