Default How long before the faf firebird clone?

This has to be one of the next releases and most anticipated since innova makes every disc super domey now including firebirds. Let's get some FAF in stiff pearly pinnacle plastic, I will buy 25

DD has something they call the Felon. Seems very FB like. Not sure if it is FAF.

Gateway Spirit was first. I'm not sure (Gateway gurus can confirm or deny) but it might even predate the FAR Firebirds in champion plastic. Either way the Spirit is even more OS if you can believe that. It's damn near unthrowable. I would challenge you to throw a Spirit on hyzer but it would cut so hard that it would rip a sizeable hole in the fabric of reality and send you to the magical land of Narnia to frolic with Mr. Tumnus and try and get some Turkish Delight from the White Queen.

Recently, the Latitude 64 Stilletto is close, but faster. The MVP Motion isn't a direct copy, being that it's overmolded, but the flight is similar if not a little better. It was clearly inspired by the Firebird and I've never seen a Motion that wasn't board flat. The Lat64 Scythe is also pretty close in flight to a FAF Firebird, but it isn't flat. It's also a little more workable. I wouldn't say it's as close a copy as the other three.

My guess is you're waiting less than a year.
