swirly star with jackal stamps are actually quite beefy. I can hardly turn mine.

I've been loving my NS2 FD (the first FD I bought) but lately I've found myself wishing for something to fill the slot between a beat up DX teebird and the NS2. Our local shop has some luster C-line FD's with mini bar stamp as well as G and S lines with their stamp on them.

Would any of those 3 be a good fit between the beat teebird and NS2?

For reference I'm throwing the teebird/NS2 around 300-340' the teebird needs a fair bit of room to work left then back to a few feet left of center (LHBH) while the NS2 goes straight then hyzers very reliably to the right. I guess the shot I'm imagining is if I had more power and could flip the NS2 up or get a bit of turn out of it before it fades.

Probably a non swirly S line or an older C line.

Luster isn't a bad option especially if you get one in the 167-169 weight range.

Luster's are a flippier run and are probably exactly what you're looking for.

Thank you for the recommendation, I've been loving the Luster FD, it's become the go to fairway in my bag and probably the most used disc off the tee the last 2 months.

I'm not sure if it's just because I'm using the luster so much and getting used to the lower fade that has or what, but I could almost swear my NS2 is getting more stable as it breaks in. It's not really thunderbird stable. But you could make the argument for baby thunderbird I think.

Anyone notice the recent runs of S-line are higher PLH and more overstable than older jackal-stamp runs? I have a couple swirly S-lines, which were advertised as more overstable, but also a few of the most recent non-swirly run. Closer to a Teebird than my older S-lines have been.

I'm down to 1 of the older S-lines, I think I'm going to have to find an alternate disc at this point for the stable to slightly understable slot. Frustrating because I have been really relying on the FD as a workhorse. I was so excited when I saw they were back in stock too...

Most fd fans are hoping for more OS runs IMO

I have plenty of options for overstable and even straight with late fade/dump.

FD had the spot with a bit of turn plus very little fade with long glide for straight long tunnel shots....now I may have to look at TL3 for this...
