Sounds like it's more like a PD that loses fade but maintains high speed stability. Beat DX Firebirds are crazy fun. You can flip one 75' off line, and it'll still fight back to fade if it has enough height.

I've thrown a lot of DX Banshees and a lot of DX Firebirds. DX Firebirds are like a zenmaster disc golf secret; they are magical but almost no one throws them so almost no one understands the magic. Like EVERY DX disc loses it's LSS first and stops fading, but the Firebird does it in reverse. Throwing one is an accident you have to stumble across. I mean, 90% of the people who throw Firebirds wouldn't touch DX anything; they will never see the magical beat DX Firebird in action.

Beat DX Banshees are old golf discs. They lose the LSS before the HSS like golf discs are supposed to, so they fly more like TeeBirds. They never have the magical TeeBird glide, though.

If you don't have a beat in DX Firebird go to a PIAS and find one for your bag. You can thank all of us later.

I’ve got an x-out champ Banshee that I bought 3 years ago so it’s probably not the cool version everyone is waxing nostalgic about in here. I still like it though, it’s beaten in to very straight with good glide and then a late pronounced left fade (RHBH). Flies very similarly to a fresh Avery star Teebird, except the Teebird has more HSS. Distance for me is very close, maybe a tick more distance with the Banshee.

Mine actually has one. I thought about it a couple times, but haven't snagged it. I need to sell some of my recent acquisitions first though.

Yeah DX FBs are great. I snagged the one at the local PIAS and proceeded to throw it 400' with relative ease. Outdistanced the Plasma Trace I had with me by 45'+. Super fun to throw, and it will almost always fight back if given enough height (throwing sky annys it won't fight back, but otherwise it will).

I did give them a try.

I should preface this with the fact that I love DX. DX Teebirds, Leopards, Valkyries, Rocs, Eagles... the DX versions are the best versions.

DX Banshees were a different beast. Typically DX will lose some fade, then develop some turn, all the while developing crazy glide. And DX typically doesn't beat as fast as most people think. But DX Banshees beat much faster (than say a DX Teebird) and the lost fade and started turning at the same time. This made for some unique flight paths, because even though they lost fade, they still always finished. Flew Eagle type flex lines. But they never seemed to develop really any extra glide.

I should note this was a small sample size and it was two+ years ago I did this. I was playing much less, so even though I tried DX Banshees for most of the season, I really only put significant wear on three.

So I was not impressed. Champ Banshees are the best Banshees in my opinion. I've since moved away from Banshees, as it is so easy to find Teebirds that fly basically like Banshees nowadays.
