Most OS are the very opaque 11x and early 12x champs that are super hard, almost no flex and are board flat. This is generally referred to as an FAF Firebird. These would be 2010-2012 if memory serves.
There was a more recent run in 2018-2019 (i think?) that are super flat, opaque, and stiff as well. Have a few and they're in the same neighborhood as the 2010-2012 FAF runs.

Yeah those are pretty good ones. Flat and pearly and OS. Noticeably different in feel and flight from the typical domey embossed Champ Firebirds that have been made recently.

I have an array of newer Firebirds, old ones as well, and a flat Champ from any year is the ticket.

****, if any Firebird isn't overstable enough for you, you the thrower are doing something wrong (exclude DX).



If you're not already invested in limited/OOP runs, PLEASE do not chase them down. Please.

FOR ANY MOLD FROM ANY COMPANY.

Based on what I've thrown and heard my best guess is (most OS to least OS):
16-15-19-20-18-17

With the caveat that I don't own them all.

I know new OP asked, but you know what's even easier? Stock stamps.

Buy a Sexton to support a pro you like sure, but if you're hunting down 2017 runs he's not seeing a dollar from that resale. Random Jabroni is.

yes but when random jabroni makes 50 bucks reselling a disc, an insane demand is made for new runs of that disc which drives sales and production which does help fill Nate's pockets.
