Default Should I buy a Champion or Star Firebird

Hello all,

I recently lost my goto Champion Firebird by throwing it into a pond this past weekend. I do have a back up, so no big deal for that round. However, I am looking to purchase another Firebird to back up the one I'm currently throwing.

I love the Champion Firebird, but have heard good things about the Star Firebird as well. Finally my question, which one would you all prefer to have in your bag and why? I just wanted input from others before I go buy the same disc again.

Thanks all!!

I prefer Champ plastic in discs I want to stay OS like the Firebird. So i'd say get a Flat Top Champ Firebird.

I carry both a flat Star and a flat Champ. My Star definitely has more glide/distance and isn't as overstable and the grip is better and it will be it over time. Champ will last forever and will hold it's stability. If I only had one; it would be a Champ. Mine will be useful till the day it's lost on the course.

I have a star in my bag right now. It's not as overstable as the champion, but it still fights wind and comes back every time.

I carry a 12x Star 172 in my bag and its kinda domey and getting beat. It's been a great disc since I bought it, but the more beat it gets its not flying as consistent so I am going to buy a new Star and I'm also tempted to try a flat Champ because of all the good things I hear.

If I had to pick one, I'd choose Star. Just because it's easier to throw.

But I doubt I could throw one any farther than my Banshee. Well. Maybe farther right (RHFH)

Do it, I threw a Star Firebird for a couple years then I switch to Champion Flat Top & haven't looked back since. You won't regret it.
