Idk why but to me that video seemed scripted. As another long time eagle thrower and a lover of old eagles. I can say that, in my opinion, the Barsby eagle is one of the worst feeling and flying eagles on the market. Too stiff, too overstable, not enough glide, terrible colors and only in max weight. I hope they change this for next year.

Well I guess I don't feel too bad...Innova can't even make a good Eagle for Gregg.

When I started playing, I loved Eagles. Now, the rare Color Glows that are more true to the -1/3 are the only ones I throw. So many of the newer Eagles I've thrown are almost as overstable as Sexybirds.

It's pretty sad when Innova can't even make their classic, well-loved molds correctly.

Are those a special run of the color glows. I ask because I have a small stack of color glow eagles and none of them would have a -1 for turn. Maybe a 0 for turn but if there is any turn then its hard to see.

I got mine from DGU. They were F2s with miffed stamps. But they fly like my old Champ Eagles from 2004-2005. Hyzer flip or turn with a generous finish.

It’s like he doesn’t like they way they turned out as eagles, but likes them none the less. Like he wanted true to numbers eagles, but got banshees instead, but it’s still a disc he enjoys.

I don’t think Star is too overstable or too little glide on eagles. These swirly star are definitely less glide, more OS than all the other star eagles I have thrown. Still a good disc. I think with some heavy use, in a couple years these will be bombers that people want.
