I don't think they're Firebird OS.. definitely beefy though. On a good rip mine goes straight with a dependable fade when slowing down. I don't feel like mine overlaps with anything, it's found a way into a slot in my bag.

So it's like a PDx, right?

if they are over stable as advertised I won't be that disappointed cause a considerable amount of my pd stock is leaning less overstable than I'd like.
The AJ PDs I have are quite overstable. Not sure I'll need another OS pd...hmm.

Picked a MF up at a shop today, can confirm slight dome and nice plastic, slightly grippy for C line. Compared PLH to my flat, beefy 167g Jolly Launcher and the MF is a touch lower. Compared PLH and dome on 8 MF at the shop and they were identical. Mine scaled at 175g on the button.

Gonna throw it soon, hoping for workable beef.

For me, the PDx is, for all intents and purposes, a beefy PD. Not much difference at all that I can tell. But, that's just me.

Threw the MF in the field today, confirmed beefy and some of the best grip I've felt on C/champ plastic. More dome than I prefer on a PD. Not gonna kick the flat, beefy 167g JL out of the bag at this point. I'm sure I'll like it better after some wear so I'll keep messing with it. Wish they ran some in lighter weights.

So, my PD 'cycle' currently is:

167g JL, flat with slightly higher PLH. Beefy but workable, this is a disc that's convincing me that I should probably throw 170g or less for drivers.

171g S line, just put it in the bag so it's still very OS, should work in nicely in about a month.

171g S line, finally beat an S line in enough to kick my moderately beat P line out. Good distance for me, dependsble fade, probably about -1/2 for turn/fade.

I have a couple beat P lines that are less stable but that encroaches on my SOLSs, and I love my SOLSs for S/US lines. Have some fresh P lines that I also love but I'm gonna let them sit for a while.

Must I banish my SOLSs in order to be a true cycler?

Indeed. A true cycler must banish that which makes his bag impure! Become one with the mold. Only then can he attain the power of a perfect cycle...

Just picked up a CPD 167g on a whim. Pop top.

Build me a noodle armed distance lineup out of nothing greater than rim width 1.9mm... GO! EDIT and oh yeah nothing OOP

Hey look, I double-bumped this thread. Oh well!

So thought experiment time - I was thinking about checking out a very light weight disc to rip on for distance, but I have never been a big fan of bubble plastic, especially the newer stuff with the bubbles in the rim. I have considered MVP fission plastic, but that's for a different thread.

I was thinking to myself, how can I combine very low weight for added distance without sacrificing all my control in the process? I really want something to lean into in calm conditions and throw Simon-style monster hyzer lines.

That's when I took a closer look at inflight and realized that the PD might be perfect for this - narrow rim to speed ratio, so I can go real light even in champ (found them <150g in C on infinite just now) without needing to go blizzard.

The question is, has anyone tried these super lightweight CPDs? Do they fly like a PD should in calm conditions?
