Have not gotten a chance to throw yet, but they feel great. Stiff, but not the most stiff champion I have ever felt.

Orange disc is the flattest/highest plh "Flat Topped" Firebird I have (flattest and highest plh I had before these two). I also have a super flat 11x, but it is not quite as flat or high a plh as the orange.

Green is slightly less flat/high plh of the two.

This is now the flattest and highest plh I own.

These are pearlly, but hard to capture with my phone's camera. More so than they look in these pictures.

I don't have any original 2012 FAF to compare these to, but I will try to find a local that has one. I suspect these will be less flat and lower plh, but not sure about that.

How do they 11x fly compared to a domey 12x or ‘17 Sexton? Normal fairly flat 11x

Where did they come from? I’d like to get a couple.

Hyzerfarm. DCU had several a couple of months back, but when I noticed they were engraved and a new run, I took it with a grain of salt that these were as flat as they claimed. But I decided to pull the trigger on a couple from Hyzerfarm (sold out of max weights now). I expect more of these to show up in the next few months in various places.

I picked up a Star FB several months ago, 170g 2011 tourney stamp. Ugly worn stamp, ugly big ink, lots of surface scuffs, a few dings but 8/10 disregarding cosmetics. Very flat, very firm but not FAF, the plastic seems pretty indestructible though. Just short of stupid OS but workable. I traded a true FAF that I couldn't find a use for, this one I can flex or rip on a FH for FB stuff.

Was all the Star plastic around 2011 like this stuff?

Agreed, our club just received our Innova order and had some TFR Flat Firebirds included. Man I wish we had ordered way more based on the 10 we received. Strangely of the two I picked out one was as ChefKoolaid described, pink pearly almost luster like champion and board flat. The other was an ice blue that was completely crystal clear, also board flat.

1100+ posts, too lazy to search. What would a 150 class Champion Firebird fly like?
