DX Teebirds and DX Rocs are like $8

Uh yeah come to oregon and see how long DX plastic holds up. My home course is Pier Park. Check out the photos on dgcoursereview.

a 160's s-pd is worth your money, even if it doesn't knock anything out of the bag. it's just a lot of fun to throw.


but anyway, eagles are just soooo much better in the wind than a teebird. so i made the switch.

I should say, somewhat consistent. I like the extra stability of the champs.

I would also like to add, that throwing my teebirds forehand as become my new secret weapon. They fly super straight when thrown this way.

I agree 100% on the 12x I had a couple opaque blues that were crazy beefy and refused to stay in the air. And yeah <3 Pier Park. Love this part of the country it's money when it comes to disc golf. Because of the wooded courses. A lot more Z Buzzz throwers around these parts than Dx Roc throwers. Most the really great players I know around here only use dx for rollers.

Replacing TB's with PD's didn't make sense for me, I think they are very different discs. If I dropped TB's after all these years I would pick up Eagles.

TB never quite suited the courses and it wasn't as straight as everyone touts them to be so it was never fully locked in my bag anyway. All of the PDs i own fade too much and i don't have any of the straightness level i've witnessed on one early loaner P PD 168. So the PD was main driver only for last summer for me. Leo/Stalker and Beast for me this season. With return to Leo later in the summer dropping the Stalker.
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.

Oh I do like the extra stability of the Champs. I have a couple that fly like a Champ TeeBird should. The ones I referred to however are crazy overstable. Throw them hard and flat and they just want to crash down before reaching 300'.

But yeah, it's Innova...

Back on topic: I really really really do like the TeeBird. Two things are keeping it from my bag: 1. no real space between my MD2s (powers up well) and TDs/PDs (power down well) and 2. I don't think I have a single hole on my home course where I'd need it. Well, maybe one, but I prefer my PDs for that.

Flat or domey? Clear or opaque? flight numbers or no? I haven't been able to find a beefy teebird in forever.

Domey, some clear, some cloudy/pearly (you can still see through them), some with flight numbers, some without.

Just check PLH.

another oregon golfer here, my home course is tree top in The Dalles. i have had dx plastic ruin in one round up here. star/esp or champ/z are all you can throw here for anything faster then a putter.

A tye-dye Champ Teebird was the 2nd disc i ever bought about 4 years ago. First was a Star XCal, i thought the teebird was a midrange, hah. didnt' use it at all for a LONG time. One day me and a friend were emptying our bag just throwin drives and i ripped the Teebird with a slide Any on it and it glided further than any other disc i had. I was floored. Since then it's been my goto distance+Accuracy driver. Sadly that one was stolen, and i got another and the wind deposited it about 8 feet out into the abyss that was high grass/cattails of a lake. Just got a new one and it flies the same as the previous too. So now the battle is between that and my new vibram disc.. they fly quite the same. Love the Teebird.

What variations of Teebirds do you guys carry in your bag?

I have a used and abused 11x champ which has made me want to stop relying on beat-in S PD's for a workhorse driver.

I've never thought of a PD as a "tweener" fairway/distance driver. It is a distance driver, it is just extremely versatile at the same time. The only reason I don't have a teebird in my bag still is because I've found PD/QJLS to be a lot more versatile than PD/teebird.
