Yeah they keep that fade for a while but it will get some turn.

Yes, a little it's not magically going to turn into a Teebird but it gets a little more.

Mine picked up turn first and even after being pretty trashed (landed on this big rock throwing fh roller for one big gash and bunch of smaller nicks) still has fade.

It's a pretty cool disc for hyper flips, turnovers and finesse.

Though over the last few days I have been working on one line throws (as Feldberg calls it) and honestly can tell a difference compared to before where really I was throwing two line. When I was doing it correctly I was making beat rocs hold hard hyzers and anhyzers. Compared before to (hyzer) flip to turnover and anhyzers(cut roller/roller). I was having to actually throw a roller for it to be one.

Only reason I mention this is because a lot of people say beat dx teebirds fly funky with oats. So I assume firebirds do the same.

Anyway next time I practice I'm going to work on throwing more "one line" and bring my beat dx firebirds and teebirds along. See if they fly different.

That depends on how often you hit trees and how hard you throw. Mine last a good amount of time but no one has ever called me a power thrower.
