My guess would be fd-->instinct-->fd2 part3. I have a feeling it's going to be more OS than a regular teebird. Interesting to see if they stuck with the teebird bottom and fd3 top, or if they changed the parts. I'm hoping for something like the '17 allen teebirds. Very flat, pretty good glide and a solid but not a bomb fade. They are pretty stiff though, hope the color glow they used in these fd2' s is a bit softer and grippier.

Wasn't the FD2-retool supposed to replicate the 2nd run FD? I remember hearing that all over the place when they announced the disc.

Am I reading correctly that its more os than a teebird? Less so than a thunderbird?
If beat in star teebirds are too beefy, you probably won't have a use for an FD2 because they seem to be more OS than a teebird. Keep in mind none of us commoners have thrown the final retooled version of the FD2 yet, so we are speculating. Night Strike to replace a beat teebird might make sense though.

I like the idea of night strike, and thanks for the info! Im in a rut about what fairway driver to use, replacing beat star teebirds I loved and lost last season. I just dont want to beat one in again and lose one in water or something silly is all, and those new star birds are typically a hair too os for a long time when I want to use them.

Do I just cycle dx birds? Give pro teebirds a shot? GStar?? If I had a couple hundred to drop on discs Id get them all and love to throw them before the season really gets going here but alas Ill only get a couple to mess with, and something off the shelf or with a smaller amount of season to get to that sweet spot is what Ive been in search of tail end of last season before the snow, and now.

Have you tried a max wt. Champion TL? (Or maybe a Champion TL3?) Also, the DGA Pipeline is in that 'tweener' range between a too-OS Teebird and a TL/FD type disc. You might give that a shot.

The champ TL is probably a good option, or wait for an instinct, or grab an explorer.

The new fd2 is very close to 2nd run fd in terms of the profile. Different top than the proto fd2 and different bottom piece also (as in not the teebird bottom).

How far were you throwing those beat birds?
S-Line fd is a great fairway, decent hss and soft fade. Gstar TB has a very mellow flight compared to star, I suspect you will like them out of the box. The explorer has a similar flight to a gstar iirc.
