But seriously, they are more alike than they are different. They both use the Firebird bottom, and they're both "longer Teebirds." I throw the PD because for me it is longer and has a straighter flight. My caveat is that the runs that I throw (current bag cycle attached below) are not what people buying new would find. I have no idea what run those S-Lines are, but they are from about 2012, are flat, glidey, and break in SO well...

I have one of those, has patent numbers and is the longest PD I have.

And I have one of those. Used bins are my friend.

The biggest difference for me was when they slowed down. ThBs act more like TBs in the sense that when they slow down, they stop and dump left. The PD will continue to fight forward as it slows, and no matter how they land, they always find a way to skip forward instead of left. I never seasoned a ThB enough to see how they season so I can't speak to that.

Oh baby I have one of those big d in the desert PD's too, in maroon. It's my go to beef cake for hyzer bombs/spike hyzers. Pancake flat. Only one I've got though so I can't lose it.

I also have a Jesse Heinonen signature S-PD which I'm told is pretty sought after, that thing has broken in beautifully.

Has anybody tried the "freak" stamp PD's that just came out? Are they super over stable? Are they on a new run yet?

I'm running really low on penned PD's.

I only got 4 throws with the 171g freak stamp today. It is more stable than my lightly seasoned dark maul. No where near as straight as I was hoping for.
