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.
Still salting over my initial disappointment with the INNfuse Eagle, I recently tried reframing my POV.

When I first started disc golf around 18 months ago a friend gave me an older circa 2015 Champion Banshee. Loved it for forehands and before my backhand power developed a bit I couldn't distinguish its flight from my 12x Champion Eagle. I stopped throwing it when I moved back to southeast Asia because I knew I had no way of replacing it.

It dawned on me yesterday that this board flat INNfuse Eagle actually flies just like my old Banshee. Reading the forums last night, I learned that some new runs of Champion Banshees are domier than the older ones which was a disappointment to that disc's fans. Adding the straight, low and workable overstable "L" shot with the same mold I already use could be a useful addition to the bag, especially as I don't currently bag a Firebird.

Anyway, this might be helpful to some old Banshee throwers.

These are my eagles. Orange is a eagle-L flat and finger printy, dead straight flier. The pink is boardflat and stiff and is pretty stable. The blue has a slight dome and flex and is my all around eagle for shaping lines. Blue and pink are eagle-x

Almost Pro Plastic?

So I stuck my main Star Eagle in a tree. It isn't very old, maybe the first run of embossed, and is very beat up has a very nice -1,3 flight to it. Needed to grab a replacement and unfortunately don't have any well seasoned Stars to seemlesly fill in. The one stock stamp eagle I have and grabbed i noticed was REALLY soft for Star. I grabbed several other discs and damn if it doesn't feel more like my I-blend Exodus than it does My other fresh star Eagles or Teebirds or Exoduses. I'm really excited but sad I only have one of these. A Pro-ish eagle sounds damn amazing to me. It has really healthy fade still, seems to maaaaaybe have a touch more glide, i'm really wanting to see how it beats in, and if that is quickly.
Anyone else picked up a new Star Eagle that feels way softer than recent Star runs?

My 1.8 Sirius Scorpius is like this as are my most recent Star Teebirds. I just figured this was the plastic they were getting now. Otherwise, that they were just outliers. I like it better than the ridiculously stiff stuff from a few years ago.

I'm a bit torn. The stupid stiff stuff did/does beat in (a lot of rocks on my home course) but it takes a while. I keep looking back and folding and pinching and feeling a bunch of my different discs now and I'm at a bit of a loss in general. I have several Pro destroyers that have a very distinct difference in feel between star and Pro plastic.

But damn the speed 7 stuff I have just doesn't seem consistent. The I-blend (which It thought was pro) is not much different than star and my star has a huge range of variability in stiffness/flexibility when I look at Teebirds and Eagles and Thunderbirds.

Just the nature of plastics. I've been very pleased with the plastic Innova has been pumping out within the past three - five years.

I’m new to the Eagle family, and just acquired my first flat top 175 g Star Eagle recently and have been in love.
I’ve been reading through the thread a bit, and have seen a lot of comments of various Eagle runs.... Can someone explain the difference between X, L, and S?

I’m sure there’s some other variants out there, but saw these come up the most. What’s the difference between these and the regular Eagles?

I'm really happy with my current fairway setup so I probably won't get any regardless, but there is no way I am buying one of those until I hear some reviews after how last years flew.
