I have an 11x that I've bagged since it came out, definitely flies dead straight with a touch of hyzer and will drift a bit when thrown flat but always comes back to center.

How far you throwing it? Does it show any turn or just hold flat?

My Star Teebird is as you've described - super reliable, zero turn with a predictable fade out to ~330'. I've only thrown my GStar teebird a handful of times so far, and it has just a hint of turn that seems very useful.

I only get them 280-300. At 330 I'm not surprised you see some kind of turn. I've only ever thrown it in the 330 range with a tailwind and it definitely wasn't going to turn in that case.For me it's dead straight for near the entire flight then the easy fade at the end. I've thrown it into some pretty gnarly headwinds and it still never turns. Straight to fade, every time. That's max weight, I have a 168 gstar that will turn slightly on a good rip and is not as reliable into a headwind. I've been throwing a lot of putter rounds lately and the only exception to the rule is that teebird, there are a few shots on my course where it's just silly to not throw it.

Almost 20 years, that's a commitment though

I'm just surprised I haven't lost it at this point.

I have some nice Teebirds, an old MF Champ and a Glow Champ are my favorites, but I have not actually bagged a Teebird since 2014. I found the Stag, and now paired with Tyrants I don’t feel the need to have one. I often consider throwing a Tb back in the bag, but then I get distracted and forget.

Anyone that's thrown 2017 Jennifer Allen Teebirds - are they super OS? Like really good for FH's?

Mine is pretty stable, I've never thrown a stock champ teebird though, only a few shimmer star and a MF one. Mine is probably slightly less stable than my SE Criminals if that means anything to you.. Or slightly more overstable than my 17 Sexton FB that has seen a good amount of use.

Wow that sounds OS. Like a solid 7/5/0/3. Right now I've got a 168g Glow Champion Teebird that is getting it done. It's basically replaced my Resistor. I want to keep stocking up beefy Teebirds so I can keep up the consistency.
