The new Thunderbirds must really be nasty. I've only thrown older ones, and they fly pretty damn true to the numbers. 9, 5, 0, 2.

The Thunderbird I bag is a champion 175 that can be hammered out to about 400' on a flat line with no high speed turn.

I will agree that I don't want Thunderbirds any beefier than the assigned numbers. I'd just move up to a Firebird if I wanted that.

I can confirm that my most recent domey Pro Thunderbird is as stable as my new champ Thunderbird. I wouldn't call it Star Thunderbird overstable but I can't wait to get some wear on it because it already bombs even though it only has a HAIR of turn on full power throws (425 foot power). I can push it to 370 when a star Thunderbird is really going to be 350 max on a slight flex line. It will fight some wind with hyzer but it's no glideless Firebird for really windy shots.

For me, the flat Thunderbirds have -1 turn almost out of the box while the max weight domey ones are pretty true to the 0 turn out of the box.

I have a stiff Star Thunderbird that reminds me of what you're talking about. Every bit as stable as a Sexton Firebird (mine at least isn't as glideless as a flat firebird) if not a little more so. Sounds like you've also had bad luck with the Pro Thundebirds because my most recent domey Pro Thunderbird is an absolute money disc. I also got a new metal flake thunderbird that isn't quite as glidey but still is a nice straight to fade disc when the wind kicks up a little...
