Default Switching Teebirds to DX?

Champ Leopards are shorted than my Champ Teebird but Pro Leopard is longer than the champ Teebird, so now, think I am going to try DX Teebirds (since pro is not widely available)

Anyone do this sort of thing? I am actually starting to like lower end plastic better on about everything.

I do get the best distance with the DX. Of course with wear and tear, I also get the worst accuracy. I only throw the DX on open holes.

I throw DX Eagles and really enjoy them. Usually I carry either a champ EX, Champ EL and a couple of DX eagles or because I have a giant back up of them, 10x eagles in the normal kc pro plastic. Champ Teebirds and Eagles are nice but they just can't hit some lines that the DX versions of those discs can.

regarding wear and tear, I usually have a DX eagle in the bag for 3-4 months. Eagles and teebirds were designed to for DX plastic and can take a pretty good beating before they become useless.

Yeah, I figure for the price, I could go through 2 of them for the price of one star or champ roughly so that helps. Im sure a champ or star version could last longer than even 2 but the performance benefit is what I am looking for.

DX teebirds are some of the best, straightest discs out there.

Ironic I just played a lightweight and dx only round today. I was also thinking the same thoughts. Took all the star and champion discs out of my bag for an experiment. I only used lightweight pro dx ang glo discs. I love the feel of these plastics and seem to get much better d w less effort. Got me thinking maybe all those big guns I see are not really stronger or faster but they have a technicians handle on lighter plastics. I fell in love with my pro destroyer again todAy oh and I still think the 150 r pro is crap
