1. not always. flat firebirds are more stable than domey ones. flat rocs are less stable.

2. maybe

Depends on what you want it to do. Most of the time its a firebird because it will flip or pan out really quickly.

However if you want the disc to flip slowly try a roadrunner. Good for going over the top of trees in a get out of trouble situation.

So I just started out in the sport about 4 months ago, my first driver purchase was a NukeSS 170-172. Initially it would always end up cutting hard to the left and I was getting about 200-250 out of it. Now I'm getting 300-350 out of it but it's unpredictable, more often than not it's turning right and staying right.

It's fairly beat in I'd guess being my primary driver since I began. I bought another this weekend in the same weight and it seems to go hard left like the first one did. Is this the norm for discs that are "broken in" and is the right turning pretty typical of what I will see out of this model going forward? Should I try moving to a standard Nuke to get a straighter line?

Sorry if these questions belong elsewhere, just thought it was relevant. Any advice is appreciated.

Welcome to the sport! I believe you ought to find a lower speed disc. I always suggest a Leopard but that was my first driver so I am biased (still have in my bag always though).

And yes, as you beat in discs they will be more understable.

Not fighting, but a few months ago I compared the number of discs to different sites and DGC still has like 150-200 fewer discs than the inbounds site.

Doing an unsanctioned tournament coming up soon with a friend of mine, and I have a question in regards to par for the intermediate division. What par can we expect to play by, and is it safe to assume we would be playing shorts?

Hard to say since it really varies by TD and by region. What course are you playing?
