Yeah I've been bagging my max weight Luster for over a year and it's still got those same numbers I'd say. I can FH it as hard as I want and it doesn't show turn. I've got it to drift off line when throwing hard into moderate wind BH or FH though.

I wish I could throw it harder, I can't really get it to wake up on BH shots other than placement/hyzer lines or punching through wind. I think it'd be a good pro-level disc. It is excellent on the course, it just isn't "fun" if you know what I mean. But that's why it's consistent.

Is your star Thundy still more OS than the luster? Or does the fade just dump more at the end? The luster doesn't have a dumpy fade but the HSS is just so strong that it starts into the fade kind of early if you can't smash it.

Lost my Pro Thundy the other day.. It was my go to and favorite disc for a while.. Pretty upset about it.. It was in such a perfect spot where I could throw full power on some hyzer and it would flip up to flat possibly turn a tiny bit and ride out to about 375 with some decent fade at the end. So I bought another.

I love pro Thunderbirds BC they are less stable than Champ and Star's (although I have never thrown a stock star). They are longer and have such amazingly controllable turn. I can get a good 50-75 more out of my pro Thundy's than my champ as well as get that wonderful turn for easy shot shaping in the woods.

Thundy's are great. That is all.

No the Luster is more os mostly because I use the 166g Star all the time.

I browsed the local DG shops yesterday. I told myself I wouldn’t buy another disc unless it:
-was a mold I already throw
-was bright orange or bright pink for woods golf
-was right around/just under 170
-was a premium plastic other than GStar (already have one)

Long story short, now I have this beautiful Star, 167G. The color pops so well, and out in the sunlight it’s got just a little bit of swirl to it.

Can any of you tell me if the color glow fly any different than any other thunderbird?

Does anybody else throw the Metal Flake Thunderbirds? I picked one up and they have more turn than both Champion and Star. Is this what others have found as well?

No. My most recent 168g metal flake was in between a pretty overstable Star and my beat-in champion Thunderbird. Reminded me of a fresh champion of right around there. This one was domey so that might have given it a little bit more of overstability. Was your metal flake in question flat or domey?

Not domey, not super flat. Somewhere in between. Actually got a decent amount of turn on it.

Are you sure it is a Thunderbird? Just because it's stamped as a Thunderbird doesn't mean it is one. I've seen this happen to a couple people (including myself).

I've never thrown a fresh Thunderbird and had it turn before so maybe you got a weird one.
