Yep.

Actualy, the Thunderbird was Innova's answer to the Avenger.

I think a Z Tracker is a little closer to a Thunderbird than the Undertaker, I have all 3, just compared how they feel in hand.

The Undertaker is a little flippier/glidier from the start, not quite the same beef as the Tracker and Thunderbird, and once broken in, I would give the Thunderbird an edge on glide, Tracker will not have quite the same range.

Predator and Avenger are a step up in beef above the Thunderbird, I would take a Predator over a Thunderbird all day long, huge fan of the Predator (and its cousin the Tsunami).

Crush is a whole different animal and should not be compared to a Thunderbird, the wing is way too wide to be put in the thinner fairway driver category.

You would have to beat the hell out of an Avenger to make it fly like a Thunderbird, but Avenger would be the closest mold.

Sorry you at right I was thinking of the talon.(I have a talon and a Crush with the same tourney stamp on them). If we include DGA I think the proline Tsunami would be the closest.

Never will understand why people feel like they have to throw only one brand. Throw whatever works for you regardless of who makes it. Except Salient lol

I guess for the sake of on topic, either beat up an avenger or buy a higher plh undertaker

Agreed. I have discs broken down into categories (with of course some overlap)

Slow Putters / Avg Putters / Fast putters-or tweeners / Mids / Slow Fairway / Fast Fairway / Control Drivers / Distance Drivers / Maximum Distance Drivers

I'm not quite as granular, but my divisions are:

Putters
Approachers
Mids
Control Drivers
Fairway Drivers
Distance Drivers

Lines between groups are very fuzzy...
