Let's compare Teebirds, shall we?

Searched for quite some time, and couldn't find a thread like this. Found lots of Teebird vs. such and such disc, but not one talking about Teebird vs. Teebird. This thread will basically be for all us Teebizzle lovers to talk about which plastic blends/runs/etc. we like best.

I'll kick it off by saying I've thrown just about very type of Teebird under the sun, with the exception of the new Brinster Teebird. I was very partial to my 11x Champ Teebird for a long time, but it's all black with a (somewhat faded) prism blue stamp, and can sometimes be hard to find.

I got a Star Teebird, 175g, and I never looked back. My favorite was a 175g white with a sick American Flag style spin dye that I unfortunatley sunk in a nasty, deep pond last weekend at Badlands in Denver. I don't think I'll ever get over that loss.

Anyway, Star Teebirds are my favorite. The grip and durabilty are just amazing, and they always fly just right for me. I also have a few Echo Star Teebirds that I bring out when it's pretty wet. I'm not entirely convinced that they actually have better grip than regular Star, but my mind and hands seem to think so.

So let's hear it, Teebird fans: what's your faves?

Probably a good thing to get a list of Teebirds and runs that we know of, much like the Mythical Roc thread.

Anyone?

I throw standard 12x Champ Teebirds. I threw a DX one briefly, but ended up going back to champ. I get good hyzer lines backhand and can really shape a lot of different lines forehand.

I'm interested to try the Brinster ones.

This will likely be incomplete, but I'll give it a shot:
10x Kc Pro/11x Kc Pro
DX
Test Run
11x Champ/12x Champ
GLow DX
Flat, firm Glow
Metal Flake CFR
Star/Echo Star
Totem
Brinster (unsure still if this is the same as Totem)
Pro
CE

Am I missing any that anyone can name (discounting TLs)

I was under the impression that all CE TBs were TLs. Were there any runs that weren't?

I think the first and 2nd runs. Definetly the 1st. I've seen a few myself, and there's a horribly depressing story (and picture) of one in the "Broken Disc" thread

I think it may be worth noting that the old dx tbs are nothing like a dx tb you would buy today, not specifically sure what years that was. Currently my favorite is star as well.

To add to the list
champ glow cfr

I don't think the Totems are the same as the Brinsters... but they are at least similar enough that I'll be replacing my Totem with a Brinster in my bag...

Add to list: First Run Pro.

(I don't think there were second runs).
