What was it about Thunderbirds that you didn't like? If thought they were maybe a bit too stable try out a Pro Thunderbird. They are amazing flyers and a bit less stable than a star or champ. They will also develop some turn once beat in. Oh and they bomb

Not sure exactly what it was but I struggled getting it out of my hand clean. Bad angles, early releases, late releases, etc.

Weird thing is the PD has a similar feel in my hand and I dont have those weird release issues.

The only Thunderbirds Ive thrown were champion and metal flake champion and my PDs are all S-line (star) so maybe that made a difference. Ive never been a fan of the feel of champion plastic.

Grip definitely better in Star/S-line than champ/C-line.

If hand feel is a big deal, the CD2 has the same top mold piece as the PD (Discmania's "anhyzer" top).

Yea I mean Thunderbirds are probably my favorite mold. I love how they feel and come out of the hand for both backhand and forehand. With that being said Champ can be pretty stable and metal flake might as well be a slightly beat in firebird. I'd say its worth a revisit trying out a Star and Pro. Don't sleep o the pro for a stable workable bomber.

Everyone needs to try a Pro Thunderbird. They glide so far and straight, it's really amazing.

Why the wolf? Innova has many animals that could fill your hole nicely. Cheetahs, gazelles, pigs, rhinos, etc.





(Weird... I didnt realize how many Innova discs are named after animals. They have a full blown zoo.)

Or if a guy liked Westside he could just stuff an Anvil in his hole.

Just saying.







(Heading to the practice field shortly. Have to plug something into my hole before tags tonight.)
