I agree with your second point. I bag the Predator AND the Firebird. Very different discs for very different shots. If there was a Discraft version of the FB, I would def check it out.

That's weird, honestly. I mean, who would bag a firebird and an fd3? Similar comparison. Unless you're talking about a sexton firebird, which a flat predator will be more overstable.

I bag a sexybird and 2 FD3s. (s-line and luster). They are all very different from each other but feel similar in the hand.

Sexton is great for flex forehands that you want to move more laterally and still have a good skip. S-Line is great for OS duties and thumbers. Luster is great for straight to fade shots.

I throw PD2s for the super OS lines and don't need a FAF FB. I don't have the arm for it anyway so the PD2 is easier to get distance on.

Thrashers -

I'm thinking of adding a pair of Thrashers to the bag as wide open, max D drivers. I want one a little more on the US end of the spectrum and one on the more OS. What should I be looking for?

My only real reservation with the Predator is the feel. I know a lot of people complain about its feel for sidearm but I cant even stand the feel backhand. If you come across a Z flex Pred then you will find a disc similar in flight to a Firebird but its still feels like crap. However, the O.O.P. Reaper has a similar wing profile with almost the exact same stability and consistent dumpy fade. If DC doesn't reproduce it then I hope DGA will under a different name of course.

Just my two cents....

My swirly Glo ESP signature Thrasher is flat topped and flies sorta like a Destroyer. Flies straighter and longer with about the same fade as the couple of worn Champ Destroyers I have.

I don't have a cannon for a arm, but these swirl Glo ESP fly more stable than the numbers suggest...at least with my N of 1.

I picked up one of the sig swirl glo ESP used and it sounds just like yours, the plastic is very firm also. Definitely more stable than the Big Z and Ledgestone ESP that I've thrown.

Thanks! So probably a Big Z and Swirly Glo ESP would be a good combo

Sounds good. A heavier Valarie Jenkins sig Thrasher paired with a lighter Z Thrasher might do ya, also.
