I just decided to order a C-glow FD3 I have heard these are more OS than typical FD3's but...what can I expect? I have a glow Champ firebird and its a beefy brick, which is great, but I wanted a more OS thunderbird kinda disc - so I hope this will work out. I wish they made standard S plastic in normal colors like white, blue, red, etc. I don't seem to see those around.

Glow is more firebird than thunderbird.

Yeah glow FD3s usually are flat and pretty OS for sure. I switched from FAF firebirds to them. I still bag a Spirit also for really stupid OS duties though, so its not like the glow FD3 is insane OS or anything.

Nope, it's that useful kind of OS.

Luster FD3 is the least OS. Not as long or as much glide. Maybe even a touch less fade than a super OS thundy

If you already bag birds and you just want a slightly more OS one you can pick up a star, or a Jerm bird.

Doombird 2 is the closest your going to find to a OS thundy but again still more FB than ThB.

^ ^ ^ ^ Yeah I got them in the mail, tested in the field, and yeah you are all correct, it was pretty flat, I compared to a Sexybird and yeah the are about the same, witch a lil more glide out of the FD3 - Champ Glow FD3 flies like a Star Firebird...not nearly AS OS as my other Champion Firebirds but close. I like the disc, pretty much a mellow Firebird but in the Champ Glow plastic it is almost a Firebird clone. I actually like it a lot and hope to get that nice wear into it so eventually will be perfect. So far I put it in and took the firebird out. Once it works in (probably forever because champ glow is durable) then ill pop the firebird back in. Thanks for the feedback. Its a cool disc for sure. I got the Simon Lizard stamp from Black ink heehee - it was my birthday gift to myself.

not really vintage, probably the 17' or 18' . I have a stock star firebird and its a lot like a sexton and they flew very close, a little more glide than all of them though, FD3 is flat but a little different wing. I'm digging it tho

Maybe try a PD if your looking for a more overstable thunderbird. I have a few c-lines that a pretty overstable, much more so than my thunderbirds. Maybe a start thunderbird too?

As far as the fd3s I carry 3 of them. 2 glows: one newish that fills my overstable duties. A pretty beat one that is my straight with an overstable finish and a c-line fd3 that is really beat that is my straight to understable duties.

Hope this helps!
