Teebirds, Gstar, star, champ.

I love my 12 champ teebird. I had a star teebird and did not like it as much. It was super domey and just didn't fly like I wanted. I was wondering if the Gstars are flatter, or if there are any specific runs of flatter teebirds in general.

Pre flight numbers 12x are flat in my experience, I have like 5 of them and they have way less dome than the newer 12x and the new star teebirds.

Like I said, my newer star has the most dome, and the flight numbered 12x seem a bit domey too, but not as much as the fresh star I bought a few months ago. Dx are normally relatively flat or have a slight dome.

To answer your question on the G*, I have handled about 20 of them and they are all flatter than my domey star and the new 12x. Some colors in gstar seem to be flatter, like the red and blue, but definitely not domey. I hope that helps.

The one I have has a little turn out of the box. Kinda like a DX teebird might.

Havent seen any turn out of mine yet, but it has some pretty nice glide.

The G-star birds seem to be on the flatter side. Some star teebirds are pretty flat, but some are also fairly domey.

They will turn slighty if you over power them or have a head wind and at that stability, they are perfect for flex-shots. Combine power, outer wing up, and a little head wind and you have an ultra-understable flight path that is still resistant to flipping.

Nice disc to say the least.

I just threw a DX teebird and TL in the bag until I can get my 12X and Brinster teebird broke in.

The current run of Star Teebirds seem to have more flats than the previous run. The GStar Teebirds have some variation like every of run of plastic does, though finding a flat GStar isn't very difficult. Just go to a disc shop & look through all the Star & GStar Teebirds. You should be able to find a flat Teebird. Are you looking to replace your Champ Teebird? Whats your fairway setup?
