I've often wondered why people don't just throw a star teebird over a pricey 2nd run FD. Either way, I love the idea of retooling failed molds, gives us another option that makes us wonder "wait, why am I not throwing a teebird??"

Star Teebirds are some of the most inconsistent discs I have thrown. Some are soft and flat, some are domey and soft, some are stiff and domey (the good ones), some are flat and stiff. The new star Teebird3s are very nice, but they didn't make them for a while. The old champion Teebird3s (non-metal flake) were also very good, but they don't have a production run either.

I tend to get good deals on 2nd runs so I have a good stack, they last forever and have a unique feel that I cant find in any Teebird. For forehands I cant deal with Teebirds, backhands they are great. 2nd run FDs are great both ways. It's the same reason people only throw 2-line Destroyers or prefer 11x Rocs, it's all about feel and confidence in what you are using. The only fairway that I have found that I like as much and have the feel for forehands and backhands is an Eagle. Problem with the eagles that I like are they are hard to find too (flat opaque).

I might switch but there is no need right now because I have a stack, the retooled FD2 or the star Teebird3s are getting me interested in switching or could be backups for the future.

fd3 and the new fd2 share the same top. it is a little faster and a lil less HSS than the firebird top, it's actually a modified firebird top. its a little slower and more HSS than the teebird top. so im not sure because the fd2 will be more OS than a teebird but the fd3 will be less overstable than a firebird

What a bold claim from that rumor! It's hard to imagine a disc that feels OR flies better than a second run FD. I really hope it's true.

New release of "Reinvented" Konopiste Shimmer S-Line FD2s. Interesting that they bumped ratings to 8/5/0/2
