Default teebird vs roadrunner

hi i have a new star roadrunner that i can throw 300ft very straight and a new champion teebird that is overstable i can throw 220ft. will i be able to get my teebird up or past the roadrunner when beat in? lower speed so easier to accelerate but wear off some of the fade? thanks

The Roadrunner will probably be the longest disc, no matter how much you beat that champion Teebird in. At least until you develop more power. With tons of power the Roadrunner will turn into a roller while the Teebird can hold up and fly very well, even for power throwers. I find that with around 300ft of power the Roadrunner is pretty much the furthest flying disc. Easily matches the distance of high speed drivers like the Tern with tons more consistency

First, Champion plastic retains its flight characteristics for a long, long time. I have a Champion disc I've used 5 years that hasn't changed on me. So your Champ Teebird may (or may not) stay overstable for a good long while, even with heavy use.

Second, the Roadrunner is already understable, but when thrown correctly it should still outdistance your Champ Teebird.

No. I think the Roadrunner will always be a longer disc. The Teebird will be valuable for its predictability.

That's more dependent on your form. A beat up Teebird might go, say, 240' for you right now. A beat up Teebird with your exact same throw will not suddenly jump to your 300' reference. Improve your form and both the TB and RR distances will increase, stagnate and don't change a thing and your question will be considered dumb (not trying to bash!). Teebird distance can creep up on a RR for sure, narrowing the gap, but no generally speaking the RR will always fly farther.

For example I happen to have an arm on me, and (with hyzerflip) I can and will always be able to throw a Roadrunner farther than a Teebird. They're designed to do different things.

All else being equal, I doubt it.

You have to play a lot of rounds to beat the fade out of that Champion Teebird. I don't think you'll get that done in the near future, no matter how much rocks and trees.

Once it's straight, you can get it to Roadrunner distance. At least my beat DX Teebird flies as far as my Champion Roadrunner: around 300 feet -- on different lines, though.

I think a Teebird pairs well with a Roadrunner with that 300 ft distance power/technique. If you've got the new off the Teebird, it can be your workhorse driver for about anything except pure distance and anything that requires active turn of the disc.

I've found that the Nova is a great putter for working on form. I use mine to warm up to do away with any wrist roll that might crop up.
