Yeah Finnish has a really different rhythm doesn't it? It's rare to hear a non Indo-European language that isn't an Asian language.

Dutch is actually one of the closest languages to English. But Frisian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frisian_languages) is the absolute closest.

I'll add to the broken record: I carry a Zone, an FAF Firebird and a slightly domey 12x that I can actually throw.

I love my puddle top Ions. I have a beat Ion that's there, my putting putter is getting there, and my newer (still a year old) Ion is starting to develop some puddle top too. They all feel and fly...

That's a really cool looking disc. I'm even tempted to get some new Brinsters (still have some old ones) if they're coming out looking that good these days.

I use OLFs.

I have a beat 1.1 that has some turn but still has plenty of comeback, and I have an overstable 1.2. These are both Quantum. I have a bunch of other OLFs too, so I'm set.

I have an Ion that I've been throwing for about three years. It is seasoned to perfection and I can pull off some seemingly improbable shots with it. If I lost that Ion, I just might shed a tear....

They do feel different in the hand from regular TBs, but I think that's just because the T3 has a lower shoulder. There's no other difference. Here are specs for the TB:

The Zone is great for short approaches. It's pretty much the Zone and the Ion for me on forehand upshots.

If you're not feeling the Firebird, drop it. No reason to keep it in the bag if you're...

Yeah we'll have to see what they come up with for the stamp. To be honest, I think I'll prefer the bar stamp either way. Keep it clean and simple for me.

I paid $14.99 for mine.

The Zone is great for forehands, but as others have said, it's much shorter than a Firebird. I carry both, and throw them both backhand and forehand.

What about the Banshee? That should be a...

I believe the best out of the box Teebird is now the GStar Teebird3. DX is good, but the G* T3 is the new king among Teebirds.

Nice video Andy. Definitely easier to see the disc's flight on the course segment of the video, but worthwhile all around in any case. Good comparisons from a knowledgeable Teebird thrower.

I don't think there's much of a difference. It flies like a fresh, stable/overstable Teebird flies. In terms of distance for me, it's just as far as other Teebirds but I think I might be hitting my...
