So I got my Barsby eagles in from the factory store and got to test them today in 15 MPH winds here in Missouri. I put them against the Eagles I normally throw (new star, used star and heavily beat-in star), my Thunderbird lineup (Star, Champion and Pro) and a flat VIP Ahti which I currently throw in place of my favorite Firebird which met a pond. I throw primarily forehand and am comfortable ranging eagles and the Ahti from around 300-330 and Thunderbirds from around 330-370.

These things are overstable with no turn but nice glide. Similar overall stability to the star Thunderbird (a little straighter and slower). Not as overstable as the Ahti in either HSS or LSS. More glide too. The most overstable eagle I threw today for sure but with more glide than my new stock eagle which I'd give a 3.5-4 in the glide department. Plastic is a bit slick but I expect will become more grippy with use. I'd say middle ground in terms of firmness. Not as flexy as the new star blend my AviarX3 is in for instance but not as rock stiff as my one-year old star thunderbird. Closer to my mini stamp star Thunderbird which is my one of my favorite star plastic discs ever.

I really like these Barsby eagles but they do have a unique flight. I'd compare them to the HSS of a new champion Thunderbird with really nice glide and the LSS of a new star thunderbird. I'd give the flight numbers of 7,4.5, 0, 3.5. The parting line is definitely higher than all my star eagles. The closest disc comparison I can think of is a slower Sexton Firebird. Not as overstable as my Ahti or any firebird I've thrown (save the Sexton Firebird). I'm going to test it as a way to kick the Ahti out of the bag. I've never trusted it as much as a good, flat Firebird and I might try to use the Barsby eagle and Metal Flake Slab to replace that utility slot.

Let me know if you guys have anymore questions.

First off, you rock, great review and welcome to the DGCR This is the kind of Enthusiasm that's been missing from this site since the MP crashed Seriously, I appreciate a well written review where I can get a feel for your game and how it might translate to my own.

On an eagle note, Calvin Heimburg is my new favorite player, got to play a couple rounds with him with controlled 400' eagles on violent hyzers

Thanks 7ontheline! I've been playing for just over two years and reading this forum for as long as I've been playing. I've picked up some of what is helpful and not helpful in what was helpful/ not helpful for me as I have been reading. Glad I can help others get some perspective on new plastic!

Heimburg is my sneaky pick to win GBO. He already put together one great win in Vegas - I'm hoping he can continue that hot play at GBO. On a selfish note, I'd love to see Heimburg do a flat color glow Eagle as a tour series.

Just got my first forehand ace yesterday with a star Eagle-X!

270ft slight uphill, small flex and nothing but chains! Whoo-hooo!

Barsby Eagles are beef.

More so than a stock star Eagle X

I need to put some serious beat on my Barsby thrower.

I recently picked up 2 Eagle Ls (1 star and 1 champ). They have a noticeably different flight. Mostly on the HSS stability side of things (i.e. a bit more willing to turn). The LSS was similar.

My favorite Eagles are the L’s. Less fade, love the combo of X and L. I throw 150’s, so I have stocked up on the L’s

This is what's keeping me from getting any. I already have beefy fairway discs (domey Teebird3, or Banshees) and my other fairway slots are complete going from F3s to Teebirds and then a Star Eagle for the times when I need a lower glide disc/more fade. The regular Star Eagle seems to even be taking forever to beat in. I've had it in my bag for a year now and I'm still not getting any turn on throws that go out to 350' or about.

What's the value on the CE eagle with ink and definitely a thrower? Probably a 6/10

Go find the what’s this worth thread.

On star eagles, the x I have came with a nice turn. The plastic is a bit softer than normal. The star L I have had almost no turn, and earlier fade. Stiffer than average plastic. Maybe the plastic stiffness effects the LSS?

What would the difference be between the Eagle-L (Infinite Exodus even?) that is produced today and the Teebird?
