I was gonna post a thread about this but I though I should just ask an eagle lover directly.
Basically, I don't know why anyone throws eagles when they could throw teebirds. They have about the same net stability, but the difference is that eagles turn more and fade more, right? I thought it was a general rule that straighter (less turn, less fade) leads to more accuracy.
Everyone always says to throw the slowest disc that could reach the target. For example, on an open 250 foot shot, you could throw a valkyrie or a roc (or whatever stable mid and understable driver have the same net stability at that range), but the roc is a way better idea. I can see two reasons for this: 1. the roc will be straighter, and 2. the roc is less likely to overshoot. It seems to me like the straightness of the roc is the main reason.
So shouldn't this logic apply to drivers too? It seems like an eagle thrown a little too high would go farther left than a teebird, and an eagle thrown a little too fast would be more likely to turn into the ground than a teebird, and generally be more sensitive to mistakes. (the way high speed drivers are sensitive to mistakes.)
Anyway I'm not saying you're wrong; you, and all the other eagle lovers here who are better than me at golf, must have reasons, and I want to learn.
