Interesting, as a FH dominant player (also played around a decade of tennis growing up) I find this is an easier throw, it's like a volley. Throwing distance is where I run into nose up issues as I try to end my swing up like a tennis forehand.

For short distances like a 250' or shorter (or the length of a tennis court) it's no problem for me to dial it back. When I'm needing fairway driver distance it's more consistent for me to have stability in a disc like a beefy Teebird over my Stalker.

Stalker can get it done in the woods on a FH but even then can be touchy.

That jl champ is sooo slick though. Even when beat in. At least my brinster is. It's ok when conditions are optimal but I usually don't bag it

I love the Brinster bird, I usually have at least two in my bag, never had any grip issues unless soaking wet, and then I can't grip anything but dx or pro. That being said, the jl champ is slicker than star or regular champ. What is your plastic of choice for a teebird?

I have thrown these since they came out. My favorite TB ever, and I have tried them all dating back to the early 2000's. They are beefier than almost any other TB (except maybe a brinster). But the flatness makes them better for FH's. I got a stack of 10-15 that I am very thankful to have.

The Brinsters are not only slick, but also very firm which makes it hard to dig the thumb into it if you know what i mean

I like star best, but I do bag a beefy champ teebird and a superbeef champ firebird. other than those I only carry star plastic for drivers (all my drivers are Innova, ha)

Regular old stock star teebirds are my jam.

I can totally see that, its interesting how everyone's tactile preferences are so different. I can't seem to get a clean release with a softer disc, feel like I'm bending in half while trying to throw.

I do love a good ol' star bird, always keep one in the bag.

DX Teebird love here, snagged a pair of nearly new ones from the Disc Nation used bin for $5 a pop. Best gliding Teebirds out there. Ripped one on a high 410' laser with a slight tailwind this afternoon- such a beautiful flight. Been too long since they've been in the bag.
