Default Thunderbird VS PD

Hey!

I have a question regarding Innova Thunderbird and Discmania PD.

Right now I have a Champion Thunderbird, I like this but am very curious on the PD.

Is the only different that the Thunderbird have less glide and have less fade? What do you think are the differences between them?

My current fairway lineup is:

S-line FD
Champ Leopoard3
Champ Teebird
Champ Thunderbird
C-line (FD3) 90% forehand shots.

Excepts that PD's fly like speed 9 Teebirds rather than speed 9 Eagles

This may be true, but not sure it actually answers the question who may not be familiar with Eagles.

I think in general, the PD is just a tad more stable.

I think if you can throw these discs 375'+ consistently then you'd see the most difference, with the PD generally being more of a laser and the Thunderbird having more wiggle to the flight but not untrustworthy.

I throw ca 390 feet with a thunderbird.

440 with a driver, tern, ddx. Thats my power.

My bag:

S-line FD
C-line FD (havent tried it yet, mail call)
Ch Teebird
Ch Thunderbird


I'm thinking of buying one in the p-line, s-line and the C-line to cover a lot of shots. Is that good?

Can the PD take out the thunderbird?

Sorry for my bad english I'm from Sweden

Yes and yes.

Your s and c may start out at similar stabilities - more overstable than a thunderbird. The p line will probably be your most used at first. Throw spike hyzers and thumbers, etc, with the s line. It will beat to fresh p line eventually. The p line will beat to turn over. The c line will stay fresh to beat the wind. Voila.

That's exact what I used to do, and I'm strongly considering going back.

I'd say thunderbirds are like speed 9 teebirds but I know the PD has had a million different runs so I suppose it depends on which you were throwing.

I remember the C-line PD I had liked to pop up flat but then liked to really hook up and fade more at the end in comparison to a Thunderbird. I think I will get a PD to try out again sometime soon.
