maybe it is just my form, but my TBs (champ, star, 11x kc pro) always hook in the air but I can throw an eagle on a very straight line with a hard finish. My champ Eagle is pretty beat in, but it is my go to disc. Have a star teebird that is more beat in an it's just a meathook. Teebirds are overrated in my opinion, at least the newer runs.

How far do you throw? could help determine why you are seeing Teebirds act more overstable.

I didn't see a difference between Teebirds and Eagles until I was putting them over 310'. Now there is a very distinct difference to me. It could be that your Eagle is an Eagle-L. I carry three of those in different stages of wear, and even my most overstable one has more high speed turn than my seasoned champ teebird.

I do throw both the Eagle X and Eagle L mold and couldn't feel more stongly that they should have different names, more so than the "L" and "X".

I turn my eagle over, it is lighter than I'd like a disc to be but I still think it should be able to be thrown flat without turning it over.

So which eagle is it? Which teebird are you comparing it to?

12x Eagle 169g comparing to 167/169/172 12x Teebird and 175 Totempole stamped teebird(champion one from factory store as of recently not super old).

I tend to flip the eagle over and the teebirds can hold their lines with the same exact throwing motion.

Is it an Eagle-L or X? Try throwing the Eagle on a slight hyzer angle, it will likely perform better.

Regular Eagle I believe. It doesn't say L, I don't know enough about eagles to make an educated decision. Just an E on the bottom of the flight plate.

probably '320 max on flat ground. It is def an Eagle-X though because it is a 12x champ.
