Default Flare vs Fireball

Anybody prefer one over the other for FH rollers? Looking for a Firebird, FD3 kind of disc for the ol' Gyro bag. Thanks.

Flare is what I use for FH rollers and it does great. Very much a FAF Firebird type disc. Fireball is nice but I don’t like it for rollers as much, it feels more finicky somehow on those shots.

Haven't tried FH roller, but in general, Flare is closer to what you're looking for.

Flare is my favorite disc in a long time. I love it. Great FH flex BH and FH skips and you can’t turn that sucker over.

The Flare's profile looked more roller friendly and I've been liking the Streamline plastic so far so I went with it.

Hows the Flare been doing? I have a Fireball and Ive seen some Flares that just look beautiful and makes me want one.

My Fireball seems a little dumpy and I dont get as much left to right movement as I want forehand but I assume thats probably my form.

I just got it in the mail yesterday and it's going to rain all day today.

The wing is a little sharper than I was expecting for a supposedly Firebird-esque disc but it's flat and grippy.

IMO its more Os than all but one Firebird run(mass run at least) after 2012.
