Is there any reason to consider this disc at all if P/S/C PDs are mainstays in my bag? Or reasons why the Thunderbird is 'better' than the PD?

I was wondering the same, except with Saint Pros

A guy I play golf with uses a PD and says they are the same as Thunderbirds.

If the PDs arent going anywhere i would say no. They pretty much fill the exact same slot.

No... A good PD cycle will cover anything a thunderbird can do.

NO. IMO the only trait the Thunderbird has over the PD is the 'Hand feel'.
It feels like an old friend in the hand, but I'm not overly impressed with the mold and its flight.

I've only tried the JL Thunderbird, but I dont find it to be very glidey like everyone keeps saying. Its also not as beefy as I had hoped. I was hoping it could replace my 1st run C-PD, but no chance. It could replace a fresh S-PD, but the S-PD has more glide and is faster. Even the Q-OLF/S-OLF are more crisp in flight for me. I wish the Thunderbird was more of a 10 speed. Its just not far enough away from a good Teebird for me.

I do think the Thunderbird is a superior mold the the Saint Pro.

The Thunderbird is a good mold, but its just not strong enough to beat anything out of my bag. I'm going to go back to the PD cycle for my control driver slot

Destroyers and Teebirds already exist in Color Glow.

I think of it as a Champ S-PD. I like the grip of the plastic more, so I'm keeping it in. Right now my PDs have a Thunderbird and SOLF mixed in and it doesn't feel like I'm using different discs.
