Yes.

My eight year old daughter.

Have you ever tried a Polecat? Its everything the Birdie is without the goofy Thumbtrac. It also comes jn R-Pro for mire duability and better grip. Try one.

I have an old one I found one day, the DX feels really nice.

My doubles partner had one once, but his bag looked like he just went on a shopping spree at Academy. You know, Starter Pack, Groove, Birdie. And a few others. He never threw the Birdie though.

And come on, the Thumbtrac is nice. I like it alot. On the Rhyno.

Yeah, actually one of our local players who has consistently taken top in our charity tourneys and our tag competitions uses an old beat up lime green Birdie to putt with (outclassing our Aviars, Ions, Wizards, etc). Seems like a good option for hilly courses where an overthrow can mean going downhill or into rough because of the low glide, has anyone checked out any of those OOP tye-dye pro Birdies the factory store was selling?

I just picked up a 175g DX Birdie a couple of weeks ago, and it's really helped my putting game. With the Birdie, I haven't been missing left or right as often, and I've also had much more success putting in the wind. I'm indifferent to the Thumbtrac, but I agree that the low glide really helps when putting on steep slopes.

Ive played with a former world champion who carries two birdies in his bag. He uses them for upshots.

I play with a local guy that flick putts with a CFR champion birdie and consistently slams 100'+ putts with it. He also throws the heck out of it, dead straight shots.

Being that they are in Pro, do they get more glide than the DX's? Also is it the same as the Driver Pro plastic or do they have extra grip to them like the Pro Pigs and Rhyno's?

They do glide more, but out of the three I own none of them are board flat like a tasty Rhyno would be (ex-Rhyno lover here). One is domey, the other two just aren't completely flat.

I haven't handled much Pro plastic lately (not an Innova guy) but I would have to say they are a mix between the firm Pro Rhyno plastic and driver Pro. Probably leaning more towards the firm Rhyno Pro, but like I said I no longer handle Innova plastic anymore (except for old DX Cobras).


I have one I wiped the stamp on [acetone] and it started to peel on the top a bit, I'd be happy to work out a PIF type deal so others can get their hands on it if they'd like . . . other two are still 10/10 and I'm not sure what to do with them.
