No, don't recall seeing it...there are dozens of vids from Tali Open, so difficult to find (the one round listing McBeth is the rain storm).

I'll admit the C-PD seems like a fair option for a top pro, especially if one wants to power up a narrower rim.

Not sure if Striker variability has come close to encompassing the enormous run-to-run variations of Eagle-dom.

Eagles are pretty consistent from what I've seen, if you don't count the X and L molds as the same disc. The Striker on the other hand can be a Firebird, a Valkyrie, or anything in between.

Just my luck to get a beefy Eagle then.
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.

Distance Drivers:
Star Roadrunner - Light weight, used for rollers only.
Champion Firebird - Must have for the wind. They go left for me no matter what; Very reliable.
Star Destroyer - I have 3 in the bag. I use them for any LONG shot I have, or they work great for sidearms.

Fairway Drivers:
Champion TeeBird - If i was to play a round with one driver this would be it. It does everything. I carry 4 in my bag for all sorts of shots. Best straight disc out there.

Mid-Range:
DX Roc - Several for all upshots

Putt & Approach:
DX Aviar - Putting


...


Innova players are going to market for Innova when pressed to post their bags. Like the rest of us they cycle stuff in and out based on course type or when they are working something new into their bags. I've seen Paul throw PDs and we have engaged in mutual PD love, but that was last year. I also saw Shusterick throwing them.

A little less meathooky than a Champ Banshee so a hair longer. Half a tick of less LSS.

Sounds like an excellent Eagle to me, you should get years of service out of that thing.

I like Preds better than Firebirds and that thing was definitely mothered by a chicken ravaged by fire. I don't have a use for yet another overstable disc i've got more different kinds than i can use. For those that throw Firebirds it would be overlap central and i wouldn't wonder if that Fireagle wouldn't break in like a Firebird at least until it is very beat going less overstable maybe even straight in years but lose that and blechhh. I can't see the benefit of an Eagle flying like a Firebird when you could make life simple and throw a Firebird if you like it. And get and Eagle flying like an Eagle should unless grip familiarity is an issue. For me it ain't having thrown so many discs. It is grip tackiness that counts for my dry hard slick skin 80 % of the year not the shape as much except i shy away from tall discs because of short fingers.
