I used a couple 175g Champion Banshees for about a year. I got them because I wanted something a little more OS than a Teebird. The Banshees I had were very domey as were every one that I saw in person at a couple different PIAS in my area. This dome gave my Banshees more glide than I wanted. I remember the flight #'s were 7/3/0/3 officially but actually flew more like 7/5/0/2.5. Not what I really wanted.

This lead me to the Resistor and that mold has become crucial to my game. Incredible FH disc. Super flat. I own 3 and they all look and fly the exact same. Eats through the wind. If I had to play a round with just 1 disc along with a putter, the Resistor would be it. Give this disc a try.

They were super pop-tops.

I have a PFN Opaque champ Banshee that is DOMEY. Nice glide for such an OS disc. But I don't usually want nice glide in my OS discs.

How would a Banshee compare to a FD3? I was gonna get one or the other as a headwind fairway last week. The PIAS here doesn't stock the Banshee and had a nice c-line FD3 so that's what I went with

Ya, the newest ones in the more clear plastic and with flight numbers are a lot more domey.

I just think tags between the good Brinster Teebirds and Star Firebirds they get lost.

I don't like them as much as the Firebirds because you can't use them quite as versatilly over a certain speed. It's not a bad disc for sure though.

I agree with AJB though if you want something that will fill This slot but isn't Firebird/XXX Overstable the Raptor is very good.

Banshees are awesome. I've always used one. Want to try a DX soon. Mine are flat. Find a flat PFN with the cloudy plastic, I still see them in stores. They're the best.
