My first MF was one of the ones that had more and smaller flakes. It was such a great compliment to the beat up star. Even after a lot of wear had amazing wind fighting HSS and still strong forward fade. After I lost it I tried to replace it with more MF and just got a new tourney stamped MF. All of the new ones are great Teebirds but not what I had. They don't seem to love the wind like my original. They are ok in wind but just not as burly. Likewise my fresh AJ sig stars (embossed) started out way mellower than my old star. Its great but i've had trouble getting the right disc for the more OS teebird slot. A fresh eagle doesn't have near the glide the teebird has at the same HSS, I've been using a nice meaty star wraith for the shot i used to use a fresh Star or my original MF.
Iíve been using an absolutely beat firebird for my OS Teebird slot. I have some 12x birds that were pretty beefy at the start but they lost that OS understandably quick. At first I had a Ď16 Halloween stamp Champ firebird that got run over by a riding mower but lost it trying to go over a thicket. Now Iím tossing my Ď18 Sexton firebird which was my workhorse FH disc last year.

My issue with a Thunderbird in that slot is itís easy to overthrow or the disc doesnít fade as hard. Perhaps using an older Star Thunderbird, the brick hard ones, could work but I havenít bagged mine for it.

Interesting about the new Star, I havenít tossed the 5 I bought a month ago...yet
