I would imply the upper wing needs some work. if they get that right it would set the bar for arguable one of the finest fairways to be tooled to date.

Necro bump!

Does this disc fly similar to say, a Thunderbird? I like the blunt edge feel, but I don't want it to turn, just something I can crank on that'll fly straight, and finish left

I don't have a ton of experience with the Thunderbird. I've thrown the early stiff Star Thundy that flew like a seasoned Firebird, a couple champ Thundies that would actually hold a stable line before a decent fade, and a couple DX Thunderbirds that would turn into a headwind. The tournament longbowman was similar to the DX when new. A moderate headwind and it'll turn. The VIP Longbowman is my fav. It holds onto its HSS and loses LSS first. The VIP fits between a beat Firebird (hard fade) and a fresh Champ eagle, so a ton of overlap with the Thunderbird IMO. I think later star Thunderbirds are less stable At least, most of the time with Innova molds, Star is less stable than Champ YMMV.

Anyway, I carry one for an easy to replace water disc when I don't want to risk throwing my prized 11x firebird.

You do realize you're quoting a comment from 2-1/2 years ago. I'm sure they're over it by now LOL Terry hasn't logged in in over a month. He may have passed the bar and can argue for a living by now.

one thread is enough for both love and hate, it'll be okay, I promise

Well you are on pace for 1000 posts in your first year... just be careful, DG is additive, don't forget to spend the majority of that wasted time actually throwing frisbees

back on topic,

I grabbed the wrong VIP longbowman yesterday before leaving for Bud Hill. As mentioned before an easy hyzer disc. I've got two and the more seasoned one is 10-15% longer but relatively similar HSS. I know this as the stupid disc sailed 30'+ long

The seasoned one could probably serve water disc duties for my seasoned CE eagle now, it could be an eagle3 They're both flat and flip up a few degrees before holding a hyzer line into decent headwinds.

It should be noted that I only use the VIPs as an open hyzer disc and they don't get a lot a play. I could see this beating into a stable teebird slot given how VIP/Lucid/Opto plastic quickly loses stability in my experience... anyway that could be awesome... not having it become another slot that's still useful or create a cycle.

I'll stop now with the +/- in one thread

Would this be a good option for a bit of a slower, 0 turn FH disc? I'm thinking that it might be time to go with something a little slower than a FB for a FH utility, but looking for alternatives to a Banshee or Resistor.

Basically, seeking something with a rim width around 1.8, or if 1.9 a very chunky wing to slow it down. Around 4 glide would be fine, solidly 0 turn. I'll be bagging this alongside wraiths for distance FH and something like a mortar or aviarX3 for ups, plus maaayybe like a machete for skippier shots.

Sometimes I use the Longbowman as a longer-sort-of midrange. I find it to be in the slower side of speed 9. Good glide though. Great disc.
