Default New DX Teebird? Spread the love!

Hey folks!

I'm looking to try out a new (or virtually so) DX Teebird. I'm trying to sort out the stable/overstable slot in my bag in anticipation for the upcoming season. Anybody have one I can try out and see if I like it?

I'd like to do this on the cheap if possible, since $8 can snag me a new one. So, trades are preferable, and I'm open to other unusual deals that would get me a Teebird in hand for less than that. Anyone want to help a brother out and possibly spread the Teebird gospel?

Here are a few less-than-sexy discs I'd be up for trading. I have some nice ones too available in my trade thread, but I wouldn't be up for doing a straight 1-to-1 trade between those and a Teebird.

170 DX Roc 7.5/10 no ink
175 X-out Champ Leopard 7.5/10 ink
174 Z Flash 7/10 ink --- older run
170 TM2 River 5.5/10

I'm flexible on weights, but for what it's worth, I'd like to try something in the lower 160s if possible.

Cheers!

Dx teebirds tend to be less stable off the shelf than other plastics imo. I throw new dx for my turnover shots and i only throw them about 300. The new champ teebirds however are pretty stable. If you wanna try a champ out shoot me a pm. I have a New 175g just sitting here I'd get rid of.

I appreciate it man! I'd take an 8/10 to try out; I'm not too picky!

i see in your thread you had a lightweight GL River.. you not like it? I would say that and dx birds are pretty similar with hella glide and stablility wise

I do like it, but I'm phasing them out atm with the Underworld now firmly in the bag. I was hoping the Teebird would handle the wind better, as the Rivers get pushed around all to hell in this windy New Orleans environment. I'd wondered if they'd be comparable stability-wise, though, so that's good to know.

yeah a new dx bird should be ok in the mild wind but not going to like a ton.. star teebirds or hella nice tho.. more glide then the champ but still plenty stable.. champ would prob be a better wind fighter

Try a champ or star TL. More stable than a dx teebird to start, but retain their flight characteristics longer
