Has anyone compared a flat C-FD with C-TD as a straight flyer with minimal (or less I would say) fade? I'm now throwing S-PD, C-TD, S-FD combo but wondering if C-FD is stable enough to fill the gap between PD and S-FD.

i know people were referring to the + Ctd as having lap with the pd. which i imagine was ppd. anyway, its not, and anyone who says it is, is prob a noodle arm. sorry noodle arms.
my cfd light or heavy is pretty significantly more stable than the CTD.
i have a 170+ ctd and compared it to the 168 CFD.

I definitely agree. I have 1 Non + C-TD, 2 C-TD+, and 3 S-TDs, and all of them are more prone to turn than all of my C-FDs. This includes my CFR Russian Open C-FDs and my flat beefy C-FDs.

Honestly, I don't find much use for any of my TDs anymore.

took it out today. i agree with you, i was getting equal distance, but it seemed slower, and actually had some S line glide.
it for sure sits right in the middle of the S and current C. Purely speculation but it flies like i would imagine a 180 or 185 S would.

all in all, you see one, id buy it before i beat you to it.

I went and sold off all but my critical/favorite Teebirds and picked up a few more C-FDs. I picked them up today, and I'm quite pleased. I initially got 2, and then 4 more. 5 of the 6 are flat (2@ 171g, 3@ 175g) and the white one, sure enough, is domey!

Now I just need all this damn snow to melt so I can throw it..

I have noticed that the FD seems slow in the air, but I'm never disappointed in the distance I get.

Attached pic = these should last me a while.

awesome i was just about to PM you to let you know marshall has a clear, red foil stamp CFD, but against odds, you got one.
im thinking we will start to see more of the clear trickling into shops. it may not be the CFD they make more recently, but still plenty useful.

Can one of you guys help me find a flatter S-line 169-171? I know they aren't as flat as the new C-lines, but there were a few with very mild dome released at some point. I threw mine in the water, and all the ones I've seen lately are pop top domey.

Threw the C-FDs a lot today and yesterday (not the white one though...) trying big hyzers and flat lines and even a huge anhyzer. Seems like with a good, clean throw these will hold even the anhyzer line for about 80% of the flight before the fade kicks in.

I also couldn't notice any difference between a 175g and 171g C-FD.

Also threw all of my drivers into a mild, steady headwind after the round. my SFD went about 15' farther than everything else I threw (Saints, Viking, CFDs). It took my hyzer than the others and tracked about 40' right before swinging back... I was kind of amazed.
