Question Everything about the TL!

I can't do a search on TL, so I have to make a thread. I want to know everything there is to know about this disc... how it does in the wind, turn pattern, stages of wear, etc. I am Thinking of adding a few to my bag to cover the straight with minimal fade and turnover slots, because I can't get an eagle X to do those and I haven't completley connected with an understable/straight fairway driver yet. Would something like this for a fairway set up work?

New Star Eagle X- straight w/ hard fade
worn Star Eagle X- turn w/fade

Newish Star/Champ Tl-Straight with minimal fade
Beat Star/Champ TL-Turnover

Also, I would love to hear about the differences between the champ (not + mold) and star TL.

Buy one and add it to your bag, and throw it. Perfect way to find out

From what I've gathered, Champ TL is pretty stable, almost Teebird stable. TL+ (personal experience) is stupid stable. Mine flew like my 11x Teebirds. Star TL (personal experience) has a tiny bit of turn to it new, but it still really straight with very minimal fade.

try google with a site-specific search for the two- and three-letter searches. I added Teebird-L to the TL for this one. Plenty of hits. Just paste it in the search box.

Bad thing about that is if you lose it then you won't have as easy of a time to replace it.

I've never thrown Champ. I found a brand new one on a course once, but the rest of the course was so overgrown that I was afraid to lose it again for the person I'd just left a message for. I have a couple of stars though, and they do exactly what they're advertised to do: They fly dead straight with minimal fade at the end. I still get the same flight beat in though, so maybe they haven't hit enough trees (unlikely). If you want an understable fairway driver, jump on the River bandwagon or get a Leopard.

Its not bad. Its just basically the same as a regular teebird in terms of stability.
