Actually that gif was for recommending a disc that is completely different than what the OP asked for...

A straight fairway driver that doesn't have much fade has never been confused with a Banshee...


Well maybe a beat to death banshee...

Agrees, and get the highest weight you feel comfortable using. This will help make disc more overstable. If that does not work then get the MF Champion to help. Good thing is Teebirds are easy to sell, number of people use them.

A light(er) weight Champion Banshee might be fine for the OP's level of power. The Banshee is no Firebird (IMHO), but yes, it's overstable.

As I look at the OP's message, the first thing that came to mind was the FD, probably best in C-line plastic. A heavy Star TL3 might work if the Teebird fades more than the OP wants.

Depending on what you like the feel of a new Star TL could be good, maybe also a heavy Stag, or Proton Crave.

Apparently this is just far too logical.

What would fly like them? TB3s? The new FD2? Another manufacturer? I'd appreciate any input.

FWIW, I can get a TB out to about 400' and max out around 500', so my form is pretty good and discs fly true to their flight #s.
Btw... you need to post a pic of those KC Birds. You cant bring up a disc like that and not give us the disc porn...
