“Wild speculation” people.
And he wasn’t world champ when he picked the Rr either. World champ signature will sell. And we all know eagle3 isn’t a thing, yet.

That said, let’s go swirly spatter colorglow Thunderbird destroyers!!!

Signature Barsby KC Pro Aviars are up on the factory store. I think same logo on top as his signature Roadrunner plus a commemorative bottom stamp.

I meant flat as ****. They are so flat they have puddle tops (atleast my blue one does). If i lost all of my 11xs i would be fine because these x-out feel and fly exactly the same. i guess i should have kept this one secret : ) but i got my backups.

from the looks of it those green x-outs are also flat. the X is actually purple and looks amazing in person

Whoever swiped that last yellow X-Out, you will not be disappointed

...Yeah for the tour discs like Sexton Firebirds they seem to try to nail something down. But the world champ discs like star Destroyer, star Teebird, champ Thunderbird, champ Roc3, etc. they are just the normal discs with a stamp of their name/title.

i wonder how old the x-outs on infinitediscs are. if they are currently being stocked (i see a variety come in monthly) then innova is capable of making flat eagles in opaque gummy plastic similar to their 11x’s. Anyone got info about “big X X-outs? and when they were produced?

Paul's bag on the other hand? A bunch of stuff off the rack at Big5. Nothing wrong with that obviously, just no brainers for big production runs.
My impression is that Barsby doesn't throw old Eagles necessarily for the flights as much as the grip. In his ITB video he specifically says that grip is the top of his priority list and old Eagles are naturally going to grip better than new ones because plastic gets "finger printy" and less slick as it breaks down.

I mean on paper and seeing the lines he hits the Eagle should be the disc. But do they start off super beefy and that's why he likes old ones?

Whereas the Roadrunner bombs for anyone with a clean throw.
Fairly common, especially in premium plastic. It's kind of what endears the Eagle to Eagle throwers, it's like the FW driver version of the Destroyer in that with enough Eagles you can cover everything. Most of them will break into line-shaping goodness but some Eagles are just "fat" and stay OS and dumpy like a mini-Firebird. Those are still kind of cool when you find one in lighter weights b/c you can really put your ass into them and they'll boom despite how light they are.

Yeah he throws so many forehands that it makes sense that he prefers flat Eagles to domey Eagles.
