It's 90% likely the same exact disc. I don't even know what you could tweak. I only threw out the old anhyzer top bit because that's almost the meme at this point.

If these came out super flat like that clear run of Slabs people are going to be going bonkers over a disc they can't throw past 200'
Yea it will be interesting to see if it is an exact clone whenever it pops up on the approved list. My Max is finally getting to the point where it doesn't quite hold that OS FH roller line anymore. So one of these could find its way into my Grip when a production run is released...

You could loan it to first time players.

When you step up and throw a 300+ foot shot (or 400 or whatever) and they can only go a hundred feet with the PD3 they’ll think you’re a rockstar.

LOL! I used to do that all the time to the worst of the huck bros. A flat top firebird puts the ego in check real quick.

A smoky clear champ firebird was either the 4th or 5th disc I ever bought back in 2003-2004 era. It was beautiful. I threw it for the first time on a hole that had thick brush off the the right. It went in early too say the least. I didn’t find it.

This was way before I had a clue what anything meant when selecting a disc. I just thought that’s a nice looking and feeling disc I’ll try that one.

LOL

I have an embossed max I got not long ago from infinite or gggt in the last 6 months or so. I bag it for stupid headwind forehands (my home course is 5 or 6 blocks off the ocean) and forehand rollers. It's awesome
