Default FD or FD2? - closest to TL

Just curious. I threw a sweet FD (star swirly) of my friends and it flew sweet

i was looking for a very TL ish disc. Straight, even with power, but not overstable , not much fade, F5 was good, TL is good, curious about the FD or FD2, which is more like a TL?


I like to try new discs all the time, so not looking to replace, but trying a disc to be very similar. thanks

I have not tried an FD2 yet. I have a C-Line FD (and another on order), and the TL, especially Star and sometimes Champ TLs are a staple of my bag. IMHO the FD is more understable than the TL. It would be a good candidate for the "not much fade" criteria you want.

I would also suggest the Opto River. I use the Gold Line River, which seasons into losing its (already small) fade and being a straight to understable disc. The Opto should keep its characteristics longer; at least my Opto River has...

^River is noticeably more understable than the TL and is much more nose angle sensitive. I respectfully disagree with that suggestion.

C-Line FD! It's the straightest disc I have thrown. The fd2 is shorter and more overstable than a Teebird

FD for sure. The FD2 is more like a Banshee or something.

FD all the way, it kicked the beloved TL out of my own bag a couple years ago. I have an S-line that saw a ton of use last season and all through the winter, and it has very little fade but hardly more turn at speed than when it was new.

Cool, sounds good. I saw a Glow Max weight FD that looks to be nice and beefy/stable for an FD. I may have to try it out! thank you

Yep, TL is straight with minimal fade. Rivers turn, sometimes a lot. Ratings are 0,1 vs -2,1...fwiw.

I'd say FD is closest, the FD2 for me is like a mini firebird; if a Teebird and a Firebird had a baby.

I personally throw a GStar and Champ TL.
