For the moment maybe. The Explorer is a straight-up Teebird clone.

Is the River Pro more overstable than an Explorer?

I want more head to head comparison between the River Pro, Explorer, and Teebird.

I wouldn't claim the River Pro is beefy at all and certainly not a Beefy Teebird. I have a 1 month old Gold Line RP that is way less HSS than a couple year old beat up Star Teebird.

The River Pro has decent HSS but does turn with 350'+ power on it. Released on a big Hyzer it will fly straight for a good while holding the Hyzer Angle. It has great forward fade though.

I would like to try and explorer but so far all the Teebird replacements by Trilogy just aren't for me. The Spark for example is way more overstable more banshee like with a bit extreme fade.

The GL Spark is more of a beefy Teebird, flies like a Brinster Teebird IMO. Strong HSS and a moderate to strong fade

Weird. None of mine from the TC I ran have any kind of major flashing on them. I also have a Gold Line Burst and it's fine too.
