Its similar, yes- but has less high speed stability. You can crank a TeeBird pretty hard and it will go dead straight, a Stag turns a little bit. If the Thief flew as advertised I would be happy, but its numbers are misleading. The rim on it feels great though.

I don't think a Stag has a 1.7cm rim.

Dimensions are similar to the Jade, just flatter. Considering how well that disc fits my hand, I am really looking forward to getting a spark in my game!

First impression throwing the Spark is that while the rim width might indicate speed 9, it seems to fly slower than most speed 9 discs. It is overstable and doesn't seem to have quite as much of the signature Swedish glide as other discs, which might be why it seems slower. Really comfortable grip for my hand, so I'm hoping the more I throw it the more I like it.

Upon further review, it is very much Firebird-ish. A friend of mine who is a Firebird fiend (I'm not and never was) gave a toss and loved the feel and the flight.

So like an XXX just a hair faster? I have always though a good flat xxx is very firebird like.
