Yeah, that does make sense. I'll have a grouping of these on Thursday, so I'll go throw and see what's what with them. I'm somewhat excited, but cautiously so.

I think I am the sole person who got a Crave and didn't like it at all. So maybe the TL3 will be more my style.

And truth be told, it doesn't really matter...I have a pretty complete bag, I am just trying to make the wheel rounder at this point. But this one slot has been a pesky slot to properly fill for, oh, 10 years.

I picked up a g* TL3 (hoping to use it as a winter disc) and was very surprised at the stability of the flight. The TL3 was dead straight with no turn at all, and an early, gradual fade. Not a ton of glide either. This TL3 definitely had more HSS than my champ 12x Teebird. Even with a headwind this didn't want to turn at all.

Maybe I just got a freak of an overstable TL3, or maybe it needs a little more time to break in. (It got it's first throws ever today).

I'll probably still keep it around for the winter rounds, but I don't see it kicking out the Champ Teebird and S-line FD in my standard bag.

I've noticed that mine is a little nose angle sensitive. If I get the nose up it flies like you are describing, but if I get the nose down and give it a little hyzer it flies a very tight s curve. You may have also gotten a freak overstable one. I also deflashed mine immediately, so that might have something to do with it too.

I haven't deflashed mine yet, I'll have to give that a try. There may have been a few slightly nose-up shots as well. I'll pay more attention to that next time as well and try throwing lower and flatter.

Next to the envy, this is my favorite disc of the year. I think it's what always secretly wanted from my teebirds.

I threw one today and saw it thrown. For those players whose absolute max is about 350 and prefer a flat champion fairway driver, this is your perfectly seasoned straight flying teebird with good glide and not too much turn or fade. For me it was a great intuitive turnover disc when thrown with speed.

Anyone have experience with light weight tl3s? I'm surprised at how much turn my new 165 has.

I started playing this year. And the TL3 has been my favorite. My first 400' throw and first Ace was with the TL3, I carry a few, all with different level of ware. My oldest 171, has a little bit of turn to it. It flies almost exactly like an FD.
I love how straight the TL3 is, even on forehand shots.
The nose angle observation is true for me as well. Even slightly cocked up, it will soar up in the trees before you know it, but throw flat it just goes.
My first 400' throw was dead straight, only like 10-15' off the ground the whole way.

Love love love the TL3, my most thrown disc.

It just needed time to break in.

This is a very sweet disc. I throw it straight with very little fade, on a big hyzer angle for gentle sweeping turns, or on a anhyzer to go the opposite direction before straightening out at the end and gently sitting down without turning into a cut roller.

Yeah, me likey.

The only problem is I also really love my C-line and S-line FD Jackals and this disc competes with them for a slot in the bag.

Necro-bump!

Wondering about this as well.
