When are we going to get an FB3? I’ve been waiting for too long for this stinking disc. We got a Wombat3, and no FB3.

How do they even make the 3 discs? Are they basically all a bit faster but have less glide?

How different would a FB3 be compared to a flat topped FB (the ones with the stamp)?

But I agree that it is surprising we haven't seen it yet. Maybe they have purposely held it back to space out popular releases but that pretty dumb.

They seem to flatten the top and make it a tick faster. Wouldn’t be much different than the ones they flatten, but if it were another in demand mold they would have to stock it instead of me having to sort through tons of discs every time I want a FB with no dome.

Yes, the "3" top is supposed to be a flat top with the original mold's underside. Early "3" molds such as the Roc3 and Mako3 were FAF in Star plastic, while the Champions weren't quite so FAF board flat but were still pretty flat. Later "3" discs such as the TL3 were disappointingly not FAF board flat.

An FB3 would theoretically be slightly different than a flat FB where the top and bottom mold pieces meet. But there's theory and then there's practice, and who knows how an FB3 would actually turn out...

They should just do more runs of the FAF 12x FBs and then, between those and Sexybirds, all the FB lovers would be happy.

Yeah, the FB3 is redundant. There are plenty of flat top Firebirds out there. If Innova did produce the mold, they would only be eating into their own sales with increased overhead, and further complicating their lineup (DGCR’s favorite pet peeve). Moose, buy some of those pearlies you were lusting over. IDK what the issue is.

Can I just state for the record FAF means flat as ****? DGV and other places tried to say "flat and firm" but that's utter bull****.

Carry on...

I don't know how widespread the use of adding "AF" to adjectives was in early 2013 when FAF discs started showing up (iirc). At the time some retailers were selling them as Flat/Firm. I have some '13 LV GCC FAF Teebirds that are definitely the stiffest discs I own. They remind me of Gateway G9 stuff. And of course they are board flat.
I have seen "FAF" used to mean "flat AF" on DGCR more often than any other way. At this point, regardless of the original meaning, the term has been defined in a certain way on this site through the way it has been used here.
I wonder if anyone is aware if discs were ever distributed directly by Innova as FAF or if it has been used as a description by retailers only? What about in CFR?

This is exactly why the FB3 isn't a thing. Could possible confusion between the FD3 and FB3 be a reason?
