Default Cycling Fairway Drivers - What Mold?

I currently cycle Rocs & Destroyers, since I like cycling those molds I decided to cycle Fairway Drivers also. I want to carry only three Fairway Drivers (not including my Firebird) so my bag has the same number of discs in it as it does now. I searched & couldn't find any other threads on this topic. I currently carry a (Flat Top) Champ Firebird, just thought I'd add that because some people considered it a Fairway Driver. So what mold & in what plastic should I get for for cycling Fairway Drivers?

now, to be honest, i don't have a ton of experience cycling . . . but i'd say it'd be hard to go wrong with a pinnacle rival and two icon rivals, one beat and one fresh.

i used to have a pinnacle rival that was too beefy for my taste. this is more in keeping with pinnacle plastic in general.

however . . . i got my eyes on some beautiful plastic the other day and had to buy it.

i bought a super gummy FR pinnacle that, by all accounts from several people i've talked to, acts more like an icon. i haven't thrown an icon, so forgive me. for me it's dead straight, out to 350, and then it will fade a little. i imagine if you were to get a heavy pinnacle for wind and a fresh icon for straight, then a beat icon for turnovers/hyzerflips, you'd have a decent cycle going.

take it with a grain of salt; just an idea from a guy with new discs who hasn't done it.

oh, and by dead straight i mean 0 turn, not "hey it ends up back in front of me". this thing is a laser.

I too like the rival cycling so far, been using it about ~6-7 months. But take my words with a grain of salt..

I use a fr pinnacle rival, pearly plastic flat stiff run. I have two fr icon rivals, also stiff and flat ones. One beatup and one fresh. I use these for a majority of my shots.

DX Eagles. They're awesome.

I believe taking an DX Eagle through it's complete life cycle is one of the best learning experiences in disc golf.

You are going to get A LOT of people saying that teebirds are the best fairway to cycle. I believe this to be true if you want only one fairway. But...in my personal experience and belief, in order to truly cover the full fairway slot, two cycled molds are better than one. For example I like to have teebirds and rivers. The reason I feel two molds are needed in the fairway slot is that there is generally a bigger variety of lines to be hit with fairways. I say pick 2 fairways, one overstable and one stable with great glide, and then beat those two molds in to cover everything.

Full disclosure I don't/haven't done this but there seem to be a lot of people on the forums that cycle pds, especially since they come in pro, star, and champ. If you consider the firebird to be a fairway (I do) its the same rim on the pd.

Agree totally....Turns into such a nice, sweeping turnover disc. If you have one champ, and a few DX's you're pretty set.

I'd have to say teebirds and keep a few dx till you can beat in a star and use a champ for the more stable shots.
