Default Thunderbird

Quote:
The Thunderbird disc from Innova Discs was PDGA Approved as of 8-5-2014.

"The Thunderbird comes from strong bloodlines. The stability of a TeeBird with the speed of a Valkyrie; it could be best described as a seasoned Firebird, but with less fade. The Thunderbird is still predictable in the wind and a great choice for your new favorite long-range placement driver. Flight ratings: 9/5/0/2" - by Innova Discs

Isn't that basically the FL? Maybe it had more glide?

If the teebird3 is a faster teebird does this mean the Thunderbird is really a teebird4?

I seem to recall the 3 having less glide, so the 4 would really be an FL.

Someone with better knowledge than me can feel free to correct me, but I thought the Teebird was originally called the Thunderbird?

Innova doesn't really have any gaps in their lineup? So maybe now they are just getting bored and releasing whatever comes to mind.

I'm pretty sure the disc was originally PDGA approved as the Thunderbird.

*Edit: Found it!

Also, there is quite a gap between a Viking and a Firebird.

I browsed that thread before I made this one. Search is a wonderful thing.

I will be trying this out for that exact gap.

Jolly Launcher Brinster Thunderbirds FTW

If these are flat like the T3, i could see this being another mega hit.
