I like that description too!

I would say well seasoned teebird with more lateral movement, reminds me more of a well seasoned eagle/ beefy leopard.

I just hope the next run of fds is more like the 3rd and 4th

I've only thrown fourth runs so far what's the difference between the fifth and fourth runs?

Fifth are closer to first runs in flight.

I read that about the fifth runs but I just started throwing fd's and have never thrown a first run how does the compare to a fourth run hss,less wise?

while there are nuances between runs, I think plastic is a bigger factor. For simplicity sake (anyone feel free to correct me)

DFD
most understable of any of the plastics. Great for standstill shots/low power hyzer flips/rollers/shot that definitely need to end right. Biggest advantage is how little power it needs to start flying (very useful) FLIPPY

SFD
very neutral flight, imagine if a leopard and a Tl had a baby. Great for long straight fairway drives/hyzer flips/ LOOOONG anhyzer/standstill shots. Can definitely handle more power than the DFD but again doesn't take much to get this disc going. NEUTRAL

CFD
I am least knowlegable about the 1/3/4/5/6 run FDs, from what I understand they all teeter around the -1,+1 flight path some being a hair more stable some being a hair less. STABLE


2nd run CFD
the holy grail for those who fell in love with them, it's an FD that flys like a teebird. random happenstance and while great for mold consolidation (not to mention damn perfect flight) they are limited and alot have been bought up and hoarded. flat,stiff,pearly goodness. OVERSTABLE

long story short

Hmm... wonder who's been doing that??


(paging fasteddie and OB Four :p)

Here's my personal ratings for all of the FD's from the FD thread:

2nd run C-Line (pretty much no high speed turn; strong forward fade; I'd rate it 0 HSS, 2 LSS)
3rd/4th run C-Line (some high speed turn; good forward fade; -.75 HSS, 1.5 LSS)
S-Line (starts out as a straight shooter, but will beat into being less stable. second closest to the flight #'s after it's been beaten in a little imo; -1 HSS, 1.25 LSS)
1st run C-Line (closest to the actual flight ratings of any FD imo; -1 HSS, 1 LSS)
5th run C-line (about the same as the 1st run. Stiffer JL plastic; -1 HSS, 1 LSS)
G-Line (predictable high speed turn and a lot of glide; less low speed fade; definitely more understable for bigger arms; hyzer flip machine; -1.25 HSS, 1 LSS)
Lady Line (definitely understable; beat in quickly; -1.5 HSS, .5 LSS)
D-Line (flip city!! I've spent a little more time with these and they're still super understable out of the box; beat in super fast; great beginner & roller disc; -2.5 HSS, .5 LSS)
