I did give them a try.

I should preface this with the fact that I love DX. DX Teebirds, Leopards, Valkyries, Rocs, Eagles... the DX versions are the best versions.

DX Banshees were a different beast. Typically DX will lose some fade, then develop some turn, all the while developing crazy glide. And DX typically doesn't beat as fast as most people think. But DX Banshees beat much faster (than say a DX Teebird) and the lost fade and started turning at the same time. This made for some unique flight paths, because even though they lost fade, they still always finished. Flew Eagle type flex lines. But they never seemed to develop really any extra glide.

I should note this was a small sample size and it was two+ years ago I did this. I was playing much less, so even though I tried DX Banshees for most of the season, I really only put significant wear on three.

So I was not impressed. Champ Banshees are the best Banshees in my opinion. I've since moved away from Banshees, as it is so easy to find Teebirds that fly basically like Banshees nowadays.
