Teebird, Eagle, and TL

I hear people say these are similar discs all the time, so I was curious what the differences are between them. I have two eagles and love them, I use them for forehand and backhand and they work well on both sides. I have never thrown the other two. Would either of them compliment my Eagle? I will take any suggestions for an understable compliment to the Eagle, I have a Roadrunner, but I want something different. NO SIDEWINDER SUGGESTIONS PLEASE.

Pro Leopards will work but I would say just beat the snot out of a DX Eagle if you like them. If I didnt like my Rivers so much, I probably would be humping all over the Eagles in stages of wear pole right now.

I had a Champ Leopard that was pretty beat, but it would not turn. It just flew straight, which is not a bad thing, but I need something to turn, not fly straight.

none of those are really understable. Also what plastic/mold are your eagles?

I will go with rube and vote leopard ... in Pro plastic. Breaks in much faster and has glide for days. Also meteor is a good choice. It is a faster midrange and with good power they can go a long way.

A Teebird is like an Eagle-X with less turn and less fade (more straight). The TL is like an Eagle-X with more turn and less fade. The Teebird complements both the Eagle and the TL but IMO, the Eagle and TL don't complement each other all that well.

To compliment the Eagle from the discs I have thrown I would recommend:

Pro Leopard
GL River
SS Avenger
Vision

The last 2 are a little faster, but flippy and good turnover discs. But the people that I know who throw Eagles just beat the snot out of one, and keep it for turnovers and under stable duties.

I like the River, its the same speed as a Teebird but its more understable and has more glide.

River: Speed 7, HSS -2, LSS 1, Glide 6

Tbird: Speed 7, HSS 0 , LSS 2, Glide 5

I have a river, it is even more understable than the leopard, I can't tell if I like it yet or not.
