Nate sexton firebird

So what did everyone else think? I was really excited, not expecting faf but expecting a total over stable pig. Well the one that I threw of the 3 that I purchased was a total disappointment in reguards of stability. Flew similar to my 11x eagle x. I had 2 others on my card throw it, one throws 440, one 325 and me 390. All of the flights flew straight a ways and hooked up but not like a firebird should. Plastic feels like 400g prodigy plastic. The other 2 are going to ddga on Facebook where 1 already is.

Hmm... I've got two that are bevel topped. The third has a more progressive shoulder. Hopefully the bevel tops are OS. I'll find out tomorrow. Or perhaps tonight if I get a hair and decide to play a glow round.

So your saying that they actually fly, not just head straight for the dirt?
Sounds good to me, I have some FAF glows that really make me feel like a Nancy.

Once I learned how to properly throw Firebirds FH and BH equally as well I knew my game was coming together. Learning to manhandle that mold gave me that moment of clarity where I said 'Ah, that's why all the players better than me use that disc'. Best OS driver in the world.

If yours are too much for you check out a lighter weight one.

I got a couple and took one out to play today.... I think they are great, certainly made the bag. That being said I normally throw Candy Pro Firebirds. I never had the need for one of the FAF champs. Rarely do I need something to go 90 degrees one way or the other.

my higher plh beveled 175g glow fb flies about like my mildly seasoned felon. Not a bad disc, but its not moving my felons out of the bag. Should be great for glow rounds. don't really feel like paying $25 for a moonshine felon with an amazingly boring 10yr anniversary stamp.
