Default KJ Nybo Swirl Star Teebird

I don't know why I had to have these. Something about the swirl stuff that Discmania is running now that looks so cool.

But anyhow I'm really loving this pretty disc.

Anyone enjoying theirs?

From what I've heard/read they're more like Brinster birds, little to no turn and strong fade

Not even close to a Brinster bird.
I know my form isnt great but I do get turn from my KJs. There is hefty fade. They fly just like the first two runs of AJ tour series star Teebirds.

Not gelling with mine but hard to describe why not. Swirly grey is blah, so that does not help. I will likely keep it, but it is going to need a lot of beating in.

I considered ordering one but couldnt decide from a Infinite's variety of colors that your body might expel when sick so I opted for Pink with Infinity Bomb stamp.

I can't comment on modern runs of tbirds. As when I threw them that was ten plus years ago and they big were distance drivers for me then.

These are by no means what I remember from my early champs. They feel very stable and really start putting the breaks on with the big late fade.

I would think they are similiar to brinster birds and the more overstable runs.

Personally, I love the plastic both look and feel. Good tack, pretty swirl look and not too stiff. I would imagine they had to get okayed by the camp himself so as far as I'm concerned they are the bad boys of star plastic tbirds.

Tried them...didn't love them. I expected them to be beefy, and they were far from that. If anything, they were less beefy than stock, IMO.

Hmm that's odd, a decent local player I know told me he's got one and it didn't have much turn at all. Maybe he got a fluke :/
