It sounds like you just described a DX Teebird.


Just longer...

Damn, i didn't think it would make it into your bag that fast. I haven't been this anxious to get a disc in a long time.

I don't know if its in the bag, but I'm gonna be tryin it as my only driver for a bit. I've tried it in everything but a 20+ MPH head wind. It was doing great into 15-20 mph today.

So far the only problem I've had is dialing it in, but I've only had 2 days with it. I was tossing it on holes where I normally toss TBs on and I was going 20-30 past.

You like the flight path though? I figured it would suit you.

Totally. Straight with a good fade, straight into the wind and holds a hyzer the whole way.

i think if you were gonna replace the teebizzles with PD's youd benefit by adding a Cyclone/Gazelle/Sabre to bridge the gap between the Comet and PD, I could just roll with my strikers but having the Gazelles in there really rounds out my bag nicely

What does the wing look like? The Approved Discs and Targets page says it is 1.9cm wide... according to the chart, the Innova discs with a 1.9 cm wing are Firebird, FL, Viking, Valk, Archangel, Python.
Is it a Firebird wing?
The disc sounds like a more stable OLF. OLFs have the Firebird wing... maybe Dave just put a different top on it to get more stability.

FB bottom with the same top as the DD. Looks kinda like a Spirit top.

I really don't like Cyclones or Gazelles. They're fine, just not my thing. I like Sabres, but finding a good one is a pain and you have to throw them to damn high to get good distance.

I'm pretty sure I can get around this by either powering back, throwing lower, or adding hyzer. What advantage do see with a tweener disc? I never really got them. I did toss in a Leo until a PD gets broken in.

Especially when a buzz or similar mid flies just as far. I could see where it might be a little more easy to manipulate a certain flight line, but that is maybe 1 or 2 shots in a round.
