Default Avery Jenkins Star Teebird

Does anyone have any experience with the Avery Jenkins Star Teebird. I lost my beat in Star Teebird this fall and picked this up to replace it. I threw it a couple of times in a quick round yesterday and it seemed more stable than expected. I had found the previous Teebird already beat in, so have actually never had a brand new one. The previous one would just hold such a straight and true flight, whereas this one seemed to fly more like my big jerm thunderbird if anything.

well that is frustrating. I asked them when purchasing it if it was any different that the regular Star Teebird.

Are you talking about the Tour Series ones or the production ones with his signature?

Tour series teebirds will be more overstable.

A fresh stock run star teebird with AJ signature will start off overstable, you will need to beat it in a bit to get it in that sweet spot you had with your old one.

Try out the Factory store Pro Teebirds or grab a Star TL. Both will be super straight with the Pro Teebird hooking up a little bit more at the end.

Go buy a Legacy Rival. Flies like a broken in Teebird right off the shelf.

They start of OS but quickly break into a straight flier. There hasn't been a change from pre Avery to Avery star teebirds, aside from the stamp.
Buying lightly used, broken in discs is the way to go. A new disc rarely flies as desired.
