Has to be G-Line PD. PDX wouldn't make any sense (because there's no such thing that I'm aware of and the PDX is not comparable). G-PD would be the closest winter variant to the Thunderbird.

First Thunderbird was a 166DX, then just got a 147 DX and 169 GStar Thunderbird to pair w it. The 147 definitely goes straight longer, small bit of turn, then finishes almost as hard as the 166. The G Star is pretty to look at and had a great flight. Bit more turn and doesn't fade as hard as the DX. I tried them out FH and tomahawk along w my new Pro and G Valks. 45 degree hawks turned them into rollers altho the 147 fought flat and got some extra range. The G Stars were actually my faves for both molds. Looking forward to more w them soon

Came across a DX Thunderbird at PIAS the other day, and needed to get over $20 to get my card stamped, I went ahead and purchased it. DX plastic felt good, it was flat-topped, 172g.

Took it out with my other DX discs and played a round on a heavily technical/wooded course that has some dogleg-left holes. For my RHBH throw, the DX Thunderbird was oustanding on these holes. It flew well, straighter than my Champ and (especially) Star Thunderbirds, then faded nicely. Bounced off a tree or two, so it'll be seasoning in.

Good disc, the DX Thunderbird. I should've gotten one earlier....

DX Thunderbird came recommended to me a few months ago for the extra speed and glide I was looking for. Nice and flat and floats excellent for my arm speed. I think it actually flies awesome both RHBH and RHFH. Very good disc and I recommend it for sure. Was my favorite disc of choice for a few months especially on the wide open holes without trees (to avoid damaging the DX cheapy plastic)

I tried but it is still more high speed stable than seasoned champs and always comes up 30-40 feet shorter.

Yeah. Mine is rock hard and never changes.

Who's the idiot that's been crying for the stiff star plastic? I'm not a fan of this stuff.

I love stiff star plastic. I got a stiff Roadrunner that flies pretty stable, it's actually very similar to my S-Line FD. Perhaps more stable. FeelsGoodMan
