beat in dx eagle. 165-175g. the REAL eagles, not the ELs. damn you innova!

a bit of flip makes 'em easy to get nose down, then they lock in, then they fade predictably and late. beauty!

Dx Cheetah, it has a ton of glide and good carry. Oddly enough I bought a dx leopard, a dx gazzele and a dx cheetah at the same time thinking the gazzele would be the most stable, but the cheetah was. My gazzele was flippy from the start. The cheetah and gazzele were light, at only 168g but that still doesn't explain why the cheetah had more stability.

Beat up 173g DX Valkyrie. A bit of hyzer and it flips flat, flies straight. :)

I just ordered two 168g-ish DX Teebirds to try them out and see if they will fill this role better than a Valk. I'm a bit concerned at the moment that the Teebird is going to be too stable for me seeing that a new Valk is pretty stable since I don't have much power/snap. But, I guess I can use the Teebird as a moderately overstable driver when new, and then transition it into the control driver slot when it beats up a bit.

I used to use valks, but then the S-curve was actually hindering my distance because it was going too far right than left. It was also impossible to keep it in a lane because of the S.

Roc...


Yeah it's a mid, but if I need control above all then this gets pulled out. An extra 50' isn't worth the loss in accuracy for me.

Ditto. I use old Pro Cyclones, but the new ones are OK.

All of a sudden I can throw a Cylcone farther than anything I have, unless I have to throw a low bullet.

forehand correct? Faster drivers tend to be more predictable for forehands untill the forehand form is mastered, which is not easy to do.

For controlled drives I've been using a 167 flash and a 170 ch. orc. These two fly about the same and I know what they will do every time I throw them.

its official Im ditching my sabres due to inconsistancy in runs. Im picking up Teebirds. Welcome back to my bag innova. Now if I can decide between rocs and wasps :-\
I found two teebirds today a light first run pro and a beat dx. fly like sabres but longer, I wish they were shorter, im probably going to carry a couple less aveners once I have a bag of teebirds
