You can't go wrong with a teebird. I like to run a star, I've tried DX birds, but one bad hit and the DX bird is a different disc completely, one more and its roller status.

I really want to suggest the Viking here but the limited plastic options are a bummer.

Teebirds lean OS especially in Star & Champion. If you already like DiscMania how about a CD2?

I'd say Thunderbird. Same flight as a Teebird, but a bit more distance. It can be used as a fairway or distance driver.

Teebird, Eagle, CD2, PD

Since you like PDs why not cycle just PDs? You like the PD/FD combo. An Eagle cycle would make the most sense to me. They beat in very similar to PDs. Teebirds tend to lose low speed stability first as opposed to PDs/Eagles. They tend to lose high speed stability first. They turn more but still retain the same amount of fade. Teebirds tend to lose fade before they gain any turn. You can't go wrong with a Teebird cycle though. I did it for years.

It’s hard for me to cycle discs. I only get out to play two or three times a week and 90% of the courses I play are pretty easy on discs. I have a disc or two that I have used for three years that don’t fly any different than when they were new.

A FD, FD2, CD2, and a PD should cover every fairway style shot you need.

I used to bag an FD, FD3, CD2, and the PD. I cut out the CD2 because I found I usually opted for the FD or PD depending on the shot.

I may break out the CD2’s and see if that one mold can cover everything I try to do with the FD and PD.

Just trying to see if I can cut my fairway molds down to the FD3 and something else and carry fewer different molds.

Come to think of it, I have a brand new Instinct I haven’t tried out yet. Might see how it flies and what it can or can’t do for me.

River and Eagle/Teebird is everything I need for the fairway. I don't have a big distance shot, so those are my main drivers. I do love the feel of the Beast, and for Hyzerflips I love using the Jade 160g.

Star TL is about halfway between an S-FD and PD. Seasoned Teebird, basically. I have not tried a TL3 yet but that would be another option.

I pair Star TL and Plasma Insanity for all my fairway needs, BH and FH.

Get a DX and a Star
I agree if you want premium plastic only you can find a Star and Champion, get the Star almost Flat top for more OS and the Champion normal dome not so much OS more neutral as long as the wing is the same. L mold and X mold find the mold you like best then go from there. Or use same plastic but L and X wings. I am not sure 100% which is the L wing but I thought the straighter wing came later?

I use a few fairway discs then most who only use one or two but that is due to how those discs preform.

I also do not consider speed 9 a fairway disc being a player who started playing when speed 10 maybe 1 or 2 11 speed discs were out as the max discs so speed 9/10 was then the way older brands sill/now call them, distance drivers/control distance drivers.
