Question What's up with my teebird?

I've been playing for a couple months now. A 169 Champion Teebird was my first driver. I think I remember it being a decent driver for me, but I've since added a Trak, an Astra, and a Katana. Now when I throw it, it just kind of spike hyzers at around 175 feet. What should I do?

Throw it by itself for a day. No other drivers. Relearn it. Relove it.

How far can you throw your other discs?

Interesting. Usually when you start going up to higher speed drivers and then come back down, you have the tendency to OAT the slower speed drivers (read: turn and burn it at 175 ft) instead of noob hyzering it. Not sure. Chuck's advice is sound, give that a whirl.

Idk about the trak, but I don't think you need katana's or astra's just yet. They may go further, but it can't be a clean throw. The speed that is on the disc, is what is needed to get the disc to fly like it's supposed to, not how far it will go.

I suggest throwing your teebird while fixing your form so you can keep throwing further and further, while building your arm and technique to start throwing faster discs.
