Your bag looks pretty solid! I had luck with DX TeeBirds my first couple years. How far do you throw? Champions are alot more overstable and would compliment the River nicely. I'd get rid of the Rat and keep the Harp.

Thanks. I actually got a Champ Teebird before I bought the DX, I think the Campion one is too overstable for me right now. I also just got the Harp, Im thinking it might kick out the Rat and the Bard. Im throwing my drivers about 290-320 and mids about 250-275. Measurements are courtesy of Udisc.

Hey I like that Tursas in the bag.. I'm a TP Tursas guy myself. How's that River flying for you compared to the DX Teebird? Can you get it to turn over for anhyzers alright?

I didn't have the love for the opto River like what I read on here I went to a 167 star Roadrunner personally but I think they're real similar.

*also personally I'm taking this week off from discing down.. Insanity, Inertias, ended up throwing the Volt in the bag and my Axis so I can gauge my progress and I've got enough ooomph to make them work again.

The Tursas is my favorite mid. And I love my River. I use it for hyzer flips and long turnovers. Its great at finishing long and right (RHBH). Flies great. The DX Teebird is still pretty stable, long straight flight with a predictable fade. Im hoping that by discing down, I can get more consistent accuracy. I can throw my longest drivers about 375 but they end up just sprayed all over the fairway/rough.

The Discmania FD is a good premium plastic fairway for the DX Teebird style flight. DX Teebirds are amazing, but if you want something that doesn't beat in then these are somewhat close...DX Teebirds do have incredible glide though.

Make sure you throw neutral putters too, don't lean on the Harp too much if you don't have to if you're wanting to really learn from discing down.

I was gonna say this earlier but I was on my phone. Even an Envy is likely more beef than would be instructive. Something like a Proxy, Magic, Magnet, etc would be excellent for getting that buttery smooth down.

I can get behind that!!!

I was thinking about this thread... I disced down through the fall and winter.. Fell off the wagon a month back. Tournament is coming...

So I improved my form significantly . I can get my putters out past 200 now let's say 220' ish I haven't measured closely. I can get a Comet to fly 260ish but it turns out I'm old or something I'm down to a solid 300 on flat ground. Thing is my putters and mids are killer this year and I get great distance from my fairway drivers.. With a height advantage of say 5' I can thump a 320 drive with 10ft I can easily get 370.

I think a Gstar Teebird is a great disc between a DX Teebird and a Champion Teebird. More durable then the dx but not as stable as the champ.
