Why not go 150 Teebird?

At or near max weight no the Banshee is not longer. More blunt nose, less glide, more fade. Awesome mold for sure but not longer.

150 class Banshees are awesome but they are not longer Teebirds for sure. I can throw a normal weight (for me at 167g) DX Teebird further than my 150g Banshee by 20' or 30' I think.

150 Banshees carry further, but are still on the OS side. Mine don't turn at all and I throw them 300 ish. My good Eagle X throws on a worn star are about 330'. My elevation is about 5k feet. They throw just a bit further than my heavy Banshees.

They kinda throw like a long mid with more fade for me.

What is nice about them is you can still find the nice flat PFN pat#'s around fairly easily.

For a longer Teebird try a 150 class PD, Thundy or OLF.

I have been bagging a 151 Champ Banshee for a minute. I love it. It's my OS driver. It's a decent wind fighter for its weight. I would say mine is a ding more OS than my beefiest TBs/Eagles. I usually bag a spectrum of TBs or Eagles and bookend them with a Banshee and Leopard. I'm too cool for distance drivers.

I also prefer to power down a Banshee and throw it mid range distances than rip on an OS mid.

^^^ This. I've been doing that a lot recently, especially when I took the Green Hornet out of my core bag. My 157g Banshee has worked very well in that capacity, as has the Jen Allen Teebird..

I've bagged a 150g Ch Banshee since they became available. For me they fill a longer midrange approach and touch line upshot disc. Occasionally a tommy overhead for very tedious skinny lines. They are great for longer flick upshots requiring power with a little skip fade at the end. For me they feel almost identical in the hand to the CE Leopards for flick upshots that need a harder finish.

I think Brodyseus did a few years ago, if he is still around to talk about em. (unless of course I'm confusing him with someone else).

I have a few PFN pat# in the good ole dx that I'm likely getting rid of with my champs pretty soon.

I began to throw champion Banshees around 2013 but then I found a GoldLine Trident, and I've never looked back. But now that my stash of tridents are running low I may have to revert back to my banshees which I'm not too happy about.

DX Banshee starts out as a Banshee, seasons to a shorter Teebird.
