I have a number of Teebirds in DX, Star, G-Star, and Champion, but my favorite of all is my 162g Star. I have thrown that disc a ton and it just continues to get better.

I keep saying I don't give my 150 Star Tbird enough respect. I also love the DX.

If you like the 150g star, try a starlite. They are simply amazing lightweight discs.

They weren't always like that. The Star TB's I have from before AJ's signature went on them are COMPLETELY different. They were beautiful discs out of the box, not the mini firebird things they are now. If you can find an older one for cheap, buy it and compare it, they don't even seem like the same mold. Not sure if the plastic just changed that much or what, but there other discs that are made by Innova that have had the same thing happen to them. S-PD's have been terrible for the last several runs, but the older ones are a thing of beauty like older star TB's

Anyone get one of the new ones without his signature, are they different? Maybe some old stock? That would be amazing.

I will also add to the trend of fawning over DX Teebird's. They are fantastic, I love how with a little use you get the gorgeous slow turn from them that doesn't fade back. Absolutely brilliant for hyzer-flipping tunnel shots. It's a fine line between worn just right and roller though.

I did get a star lite Tbird, and a few other starlite molds. Amazing how stable/OS they are for their weight.

Am I allowed to declare Teebird3 love here? They just hook in and stay straight so beautifully then fade very predictably. Bag DX and star to cover for wind variation.

There's been a lot of variation in Star TB's over the years. I remember a chunk of the PFN's and lot of the numbered pre-AJ's as domey and straighter. Some of the early AJ's were on the OS end, then domey and straighter a bit after that. My experience buying the embossed AJ's from the last 2 years has been a good middle stability premium plastic TB. Definitely has some fade when fresh but overall true to the numbers and not firebird territory OS.
I have not tried any new embossed no AJ's.

My favorite Teebird I own is a team stamped glow T3 (thanks Streets!) - I dyed it pink though. So damn consistent, I learned to trust it as fast as any individual disc I've ever owned.

I was going to buy a Teebird. Compared side by side with the Explorer I already throw, the Teebird’s dome was uncomfortable, or at least less comfortable by comparison. Decided to stay with Eagles and Exploers.
