It is significantly more overstable, especially at low speed. And especially the newer 1.3 run QOLF. The really early SOLFs weren't THAT much more OS, but there is a pretty big difference in how they work. OLF, slight HS turn, solid LS hookup. OLS, fairly significant HS turn, little LS fade unless thrown with some height.

Do the New Qolf handle the wind well?

I have several sparkle QOLF 1.3, and they are very overstable. More than the two 1.2 I have. I like them. Great fade and headwind driver.

YES. Although they are a little domey, 1.3 QOLFs are the beefiest QOLF run yet. They will start with just about 0 HST and pretty solid fade. They are the sparkle run, for easy ID.

I've got 5 sparkle 1.3 QOLF's sitting here that all have identical small dome, and they're beefy! I know some are domey, I've seen them.

Yup. Little domey. More so than 1.2s which are more domey than 1.1s. Same order for most to least OS.

Are they good enough in the wind to handle Firebird type duties?

No. Is anything?

I could slot a 1.3 QOLF where the SPD is. Not where the Firebird is.

This is why it gets tricky with OLF's, and he'd probably be better off going with the PD. More frequent runs, easier to find, and more to choose from.

Anyway, 1.3's QOLF's are the beefiest, and sparkles the beefiest of the 1.3's. 1.2's aren't quite as OS as 1.3's, and have a little better glide...and they're not sparkle. I don't throw 1.1's because they're basically all gone, and extremely hard to find.

I've found both 1.2 and sparkle 1.3 QOLF's to be money into a headwind. Not a Firebird, but plenty OS if you have decent form and don't tend to anhyzer or torque-over your drives.

I've never seen a non-sparkly 1.3.
1.2s are really good slightly OS workhorses. I love those, and they came in nice bright colors.
1.1s are hard to find, and getting rarer all the time. It is tough to find someone who wants to come off their stash at this point. And there are other discs that fly the 1.1 line, sortof.

But a 1.3 QOLF really does start around the same as a Patent # SPD or the less beefy CPD runs. And they hold up great in a wind. I threw the heck out of them for a good while. They are PDs for people who like to throw with a little hyzer.

Eagle vs. Teebird really is OLF vs. PD, clichιd as it sounds the 400th time around.
