Default F2 Pro Teebirds

Anyone else throw the Factory Store Pro Teebirds? A guy I play with had me throw one and I loved it. I managed to find one on ebay and have only gotten to throw it a little bit. It's snowy here and don't feel like losing it. I have been searching high and low for a spare one. I check ebay now all the time for them, as well as countless facebook auction sites. Anyone know if there are other places I should look for them?
Thanks!

I bet you will find someone on here who will sell you some. Would be best to post a thread in the Marketplace for this. My recollection is that most people didn't really like them because they were pretty flippy. I owned a dirt-brown one, but I got rid of it a long time ago so I can't help you.

Are you sure they were Factory Store Pro Teebirds?
I'm not aware of any factory store Pro Teebirds.
I have a couple of the 2006-ish era first run Pro Teebirds that, like hugheshilton mentioned, are flippy. They're not bad, just not what people wanted when they bought a Teebird.

I'd love to see XT Pro Teebirds... or even better IMO, Eagle Xs.

EDIT: I just found what you were talking about... Pro Teebirds on the Factory Store. Sorry, I've never thrown those unless they are from the same 2006-ish era run and sat around for 10 years before finally getting stamped. I don't think this is likely.

Awesome I will try the marketplace. Didn't want to buy in just in case my chances were slim, but I'll give it a go.

But yea, my pro is just a touch flippy right now, which for me is what I look for. It's taken a few tree hits but hasn't gotten crazy US yet. It's not very broken in though so who knows.


Yep Marmoset...those are it, I will probably edit my original post to include that link

Pro Teebirds? I'm intrigued now. How flippy are we talking here?

The old Pros?
Usably flippy. Speed 7 Sidewinder. The amount of turn is depends on the power and nose angle.
Again, they weren't bad discs. But they weren't Teebirds.

It's not the same, but a G* TB, especially in lighter weights will be very similar to a Pro TB. They're a dime a dozen if you can't find the Pro ones.

I had one of those pro Teebirds from the pro shop and it was about as stable as a Gstar Teebird but the dome was big.

I have a pro Teebird I bought from the factory store and threw quite a bit. I agree that a ~168g G* Teebird will be pretty close. To be honest I just switched to the Pro Thunderbirds since it's a stock run disc. They're a little longer but it is a pretty easy switch

I have a pro TL from the factory store that I haven't thrown yet. If the teebird is flippy, this thing might do barrel rolls I guess.
