Default Convince me on Teebird alternative

I pretty much throw Innova discs but I am looking for a Teebird type fairway driver and I want to try a new company. I have done my research and looked at a ton of disc reviews but I haven't been convinced yet. I want something that flies straight with a reliable fade at the end.

I have an FD2 but it is too overstable. I also have a thunderbird so I am not looking for a longer Teebird.

Reviews I have looked at. Clash, Crave, Resistor, Rival, Patriot..

TLDR: I am looking for someone to convince of a Teebird "esc" disc to try from another company. I throw them around 300. Nothing OOP please.

The Rival is basically a Teebird, good disc for sure. The Resistor is much more beefy, the Crave a seasoned Teebird. Maybe check out the Servo from MVP. A little shorter, but really, a very similar disc IMO. Either that or the Volt.

I was going to suggest the Crave, but like said above, it flies more like a seasoned Teebird!

Why are you moving away from teebirds? What don't you like about them?

Why pick one of the greatest molds Innova has ever created to switch out? Pick another disc haha nothing beats a teebird.

Seriously. If you like a teebird, throw a teebird.

Exactly.

I throw a lot of different discs from a lot of different companies. I have many manufacturer specific bags fully loaded in addition to my primary bag. The Teebirds have a firm hold in my primary bag and their absence is felt in all of the others.

If you're really hell bent on trying something in the Teebird slot, try the Rival. It's the best alternative I've found thus far.

opto line striker. flies teebirdish enough to replace them, but has it's own nuanced flight that's worth checking out. very overlooked great disc.

Teebird. The greatest fairway driver of all time. Stop being silly.
