Also, Legacy's 5 year CG Enemy isn't FAF. It's flat as hell, but soft and gummy. FAF is flat and firm.
Well I meant Flat AF, which it is.

Anyone know the deal with these older Star XXL Firebirds? Good, bad? Flat or slightly domey? Super O/S or a little bit better of a thrower? And most importantly, how does it compare to the other FB's?

I've thrown and owned 5-6 champ Firebirds the last couple of years and they have all had the same very OS flight. I bought a star Firebird a few weeks ago and this is very much different. It's a lot straighter and I can get much more distance with it, I love it though but would compare it closer to a slightly lower glide Thunderbird than the champ Firebirds I have.

Is this normal? If that's the case I might need to stock up. At the moment I hesitate to rely on this disc too much since I don't know if I can get a replacement for it or not.

Sure, but why bother if the cheaper more wildly available alternative already suits the flight you are looking for?

cause color glow plastic is awesome, and if you try even a little bit it's really not hard to catch a drop. unless you are international, in which case I probably wouldn't even bother trying to get them

I made a video comparing the flights (flat release) of a Champ Firebird to a 2020 & 2021 Sexton Firebird.

very cool video. if I was local I'd let you throw some of my earlier years to compare the fight to those as well. one question: what exactly does "shot trajectories normalized" mean?

Switched out my usdgc '17 for a new '21 the other day to see how they fly. seems like the '21 is noticeably straighter... not really what I want out of a sexton firebird seeing as how they are already pretty straight for a firebird
