I throw Teebird-L's like none other and they are my absolute favorite. I have a 171g CFR Glow that is more overstable and I throw it at about 75% power with a slight bit of hyzer and it flips up flat, goes forever, and then has a predictable fade at the end.
I also have two Star TLs at 171 and 172 and these are great as well. (I tried a Star Teebird, but wayyy too overstable). These are really nice S curve discs when thrown with some power, but I find that in the woods I can throw them at 70% and they'll fly dead straight with very, very little fade. If you throw them low enough, they will skip a bit straight and not fade at all. I like Teebirds, but for a fairway driver they were a little too overstable for me and the TL is a great substitute (or beat up a DX Teebird and it will essentially be the same thing). For open fields, the Star TLs work good, too, just thrown with some hyzer. They will flip up and give a long S-curve with some pretty damn good distance. I reserve the huge distance open field shots for my Wraith, but if a hole is in the 350-375 range, I'll pull out the TL.
Pro Teebird-Ls are less stable than either Star or CFR and I find them best for long anhyzers, really tight woods where you can throw at 50% and they'll go straight, and for rolling when they get beat up. For a fairway driver, I think TLs are the best combination of straight flight and distance. Not recommend for headwinds however. They fly well in tailwinds though.
I busted out my beat Pro TL, too, and a newish Pro TL that I'd flexed a bit, and threw a bunch of rollers. This was a little frustrating because no matter how much angle I had on them, they stood up really fast and died off early, but I'm thinking it may just have been because the grass was long. I didn't have my standards (Star Sidewinder and CE Leopard) with me to compare though.
