One thing I've noticed is that other companies seem to struggle to produce stable-overstable fairways with smaller rims as well as Innova does. Firebird and Teebird are the best examples. Many the DD fairways, for example, are 1.9 and up.
That seems like it's splitting hairs between the XXX and the Firebird. And even so, there are also Felon's which in the Lucid-X plastic are more overstable and the Westside Ahti which I forgot about that which from everything I've heard is very comparable to a Firebird.

In DD's lineup it makes sense that they have faster fairways because their mids are fast compared to most other companies.

And I wouldn't call Teebirds popular because of the stability. It's more about how they beat in and work well over time along with great glide and distance potential without sacrificing control. Some people search out more overstable versions, but plenty of others prefer ones that are more workable. Companies have discs that are slower and overstable too. The Spark is probably more overstable than the Teebird and the rim is probably somewhere between a Teebird and Firebirds. But the Spark doesn't have the glide and distance of a Teebird.

Vip Ahti flies exactly like a champ Firebird for me. I’m obviously not 1040 rated, but it would certainly be a disc wysocki could have thrown had he felt Lat64 was missing something in that spot for him in their lineup

I agree it's splitting hairs. Firebird does seem to have the je ne sais quoi combination of thinner rim and right amount of overstability.

But I'd say Teebird is popular exactly because of it's stability and controlability. It's got a small rim for a fairway, but you can rip on it and it will go straight without turn. It's stable, not overstable. No other disc with that rim width is as stable.

Would be like watching Lizotte Light.

IDK about thay I think the fact that he would play within his means but attacking at the same time would look similar to seeing Barsby or Dickerson whe. They're super on point

....I'm pretty sure that Ricky has a stack of seasoned KCs sitting around somewhere. They might have a prodigy stamp on them, but still.
