I would say most strikers are far more like a faster eagle. Almost all of mine have had minor to significant hs turn right outta the box.

But they do have a teebird fade tho.

If it helps, it was a 175 opaque champ teebird, and I avg a 380' drive, and can hit 420 on an all out drive
Ok...so why didn't you love it? You wouldn't have made this thread if there wasn't some characteristic that you didn't like (love) about it.

When I really think about it, I don't remember why I didn't throw it as much. I guess because my wraith hit the sweet spot that took over my teebird shots. Anyway, I guess now what I am asking is: should I get a star or echo star? Both would probably be in the high 160s or 170

Star. Echo plastic can be sketchy

Honestly man, if you like Wraiths, I think you just need to get an Eagle X. You're talking about that sweet spot, and I think an Eagle is going to give you that same kind of feel. They have fairly similar flight paths, just diff. speeds. That might be just what you're looking for. Pick up a 170's champ or star Eagle-X.

Yeah but I've had that wraith for 2 years now. It's a star that is now dead straight. I just bought a new one that is too stable for my preferences. I really think a teebird is the disc for me, especially since I have a lot more throws with one than an eagle

Get an 11x KC Pro Teebird if money doesn't matter. Great flying dice in great plastic. Get 11x Champ or Star if money matters. If you want to go away from Innova find a nice flat Striker.

Then again, there really isn't as bad Teebird.

Ah, gotcha. I guess our sweet spots on our wraiths are diff. I like when my wraiths have a lot of turnover and almost no fade.

In that case, and if you're looking for a dead straight fairway, Teebird or TL are your money makers. 175 TL's are pretty slick. I have a special place for both of them in my bag, and they'll be with me through thick and thin. Maybe try one of each. I personally like 170 champ teebirds for finesse, 175's for workhorses. Then my TL's are for dead straight shots with absolutely no fade, and are actually taking the place of my sidewinders it seems for understable duties.

My vote is for Champion Teebirds. I have CE's and 11x's in my bag, but also like the Glow Champion TB's as well. After breaking them in, the Champion TB's maintain their flight characteristics very well.
