Thereís probably some overlap there, but for me they fill the thunderbird/firebird slots. The two I throw the most are yellow 2nd runs in Apex plastic, which are the most stable color/run. They both fly like firebirds, while having a consistent feel with the other two in my bag, which are stable but with more forward fade.

I think they get compared to teebird because both molds basically want to go straight with reliable fade. I find the teebirds a bit easier to stand up from hyzer, while the non yellow alphas will go straight on whatever line you put them. The beautiful thing about the alphas is that they behave the same at a variety of power levels. The teebirds have been in my bag longer and are so consistent that I still reach for them, but I could see the alphas replacing them eventually once they really beat in.
