Eagle vs. TeeBird?

I own both, and i am trying to find a purpose to keep both in my bag.... they overlap a lot....

I like the Tbird for drives... (if i didnt have a Tbird i;d use an eagle)
the Eagle makes for a good fairway driver. (if i didnt have an eagle, i'd use a tbrid.....)


any suggestions?

Ive got 4 eagles and 2 teebirds in my bag. I use the TeeBird for shorter controll drives, and i use eagles for a fairway on every hole almost. Eagle is my fav. disc, but the TeeBird is good too

I, too, have both. I can't decide which I want to keep, but I am leaning towards the Teebird.

I don't own an eagle, but I've thrown one a few times. I do, however, own a teebird (as well as TL) and I love it. The value of the teebird is with tight wooded passages and sidearm drives.

The TeeBird is kind-of a single purpose disc. It really only does one thing really well. Fortunately that one thing is flying long and straight with minimal fade. Really, who does not have room in the bag for a long straight driver?

The Eagle is more versatile. You can put it on different lines. You can flip one easier. It will fade harder. It's basically better than a TeeBird at everything...except going long and straight. The more pronounced fade of the Eagle makes the TeeBird noticeably longer as well.

Now if you want to carry just one, the Eagle is your disc. It just does a whole lot more than the TeeBird. But really, who does not have room in the bag for a long straight driver? I'd just carry both and call it a day.

A Teebird is a notch more overstable than an Eagle to me. The Eagle goes pretty straight, the Teebird has a more predictable fade in my experience.

A TeeBird is quite stable out of the box. You have to beat that fade out of it. You don't really appreciate what a TeeBird is until you beat the fade out of it and it starts flying dead-nuts straight for a mile. But yeah, they start off pretty overstable.

Is one version (X or L) favored by most people that use an Eagle?

I was thinking of revisiting the Eagle, but I wasn't sure which version is better.

My Eagle and Teebird are backwards of whats on the Innova charts.

My favorite Eagle is an 11X Champion thats flat and colored like these new Latitude 64 Gold Line discs, all swirly and full of streaks and striations.
Its ultra stable and nearly impossible for me to turn over. I think it's more an Eagle-X than a regular Eagle, so its more like a Teebird.

My Teebird is a standard Star run. Its a flip flat flies straight disc.
It doesnt do anything better than my KC Pro Gazelle, so the Gazelle and Eagle stay in the bag, the Teebird stays home.
My Eagle is more stable than the Gazelle too.

Eagle X is usually more favored. I like it better too. It's much more stable than the L mold. For me the eagle L flies like kinda like a leopard. I'd get the X mold.
