My Star Eagle is my overstable fairway driver. It stays overstable because I just don't use it that often. The DX Eagles cover all the other fairway slots and get much more use.


Maybe that's the difference. I am throwing a DX Eagle 99% of the time. Same with Teebirds though. I like DX plastic
Nothing like a DX Eagle or Teebird, that’s for sure. DX Teebirds, IMO, are the best flying Teebirds ever produced. I’ll go as far as to say better than 11x KC Pro ‘birds.

Just got my first Eagle, and 'effin I love it! 175G Star, and almost board flat... Is that typical?
It's definitely more overstable than I expected, but I love the reliability it gives me so I can always commit. SO awesome for low lines and shaping shots.

Did you get the new INNfuse star ones - with the full color eagle stamp? That's what I was asking about a couple of pages back. If so, can you share a bit more about how it flies for you and roughly how far you're throwing it on which shot types?

These aren't the same Eagles we're talking about here, but original Eagles from 1983, i.e. Aeros. The newer Eagle was created 1999.

Well, today I got out for the first time to throw my new INNfuse Eagle. What can I say other than this disc is a massive disappointment?

I do like the hand feel and the aggressive low profile of the board flat top, but the flight is stego-esque. I can throw a buzzz around 280 on a rope and longer if I sacrifice consistency but the INNfuse couldn't get out past the buzzz. Meanwhile my two champion 12x eagle x's get out to around 320-330 on a predictable straight to hard fade low line.

Thanks Captain Obvious, I was totally unaware of that.

I thought it was interesting and figured other people might also. So I posted it in here for the people that might not have seen the thread.

only way I would pay $5K for an eagle is if it has wings, talons, and beak.

Exact same experience here. Thought maybe I'd bought a dud but it looks like it isn't. Stego was the first thing that came to my mind as well; seems to be flying straight and then the left side just drops and the disk dive bombs to the left.

When I first met a guy he had a Prototype 1999 DX Eagle in his bag he used for rare occasions as the mold got changed a tad to be not perfect flat top, later he got a Champion in X, had to search for that as L had just come out. He since had the one Eagle in DX wear out then got more Eagle X and last he told me in 2018 he uses only modern Eagle in the OG mold, this was right before the L version wing got used for another disc by Infinite Discs.
