Traded for a new FB, one of the newer embossed flat lustery runs. Y'all still loving these?

I like the one I got and would love another. It’s not FAF OS, but it is about the same as those almost flat pearly ones from 2014ish. Which is my second favorite run.

So while not perfect, yes they are very good.

I picked up a 158gm Star Firebird
almost concave
the nose (to my eye) looked sharper/faster

thought it would be a fun disc to throw

it doesn't like to fly
damn stable (not really a surprise given the shape but still...)

I'm going to have to introduce it to some hard objects

Since I don't throw a FH 450', this may be the perfect Firebird for me. Very flat with grippy, pearly champion plastic. Played in 15-20 mph winds yesterday and it earned its keep for sure. I actually prefer to throw something less OS than a FB when I can but I'm always happy to have one in my bag in the Okie springtime.

Dude at my shop says this plastic should be the norm for the foreseeable future for champion, which is awesome. I have a couple TL3s that are the same.

Good to hear! The plastic seems to organically change every few years and it suits some discs better than others. The super clear plastic of 2015-18 was very well suited to things like Shrykes and Terns but the Firebirds and Rocs suffered IMO.

The new pearly Champ is my favorite in years.

Innova shared that the run of pearly flat Firebirds of 2018 was a blend including "leftover" Luster. Recent shipments received by Infinite have been from a different run, with less pearls. Grab the pearlies when you see um!

Don't get me wrong, there are a ton of beauties still coming up for sale. I'm only saying that I've noticed the Champ Firebirds they receive go from 100% pearly to 50%.

The next run is another great one. They're flat, OS, molded with transparent & tacky plastic. I'm sure some will favor them over the recent pearlies.

Shop got a new shipment of FBs and they are still lustery. Had to get a backup.
