In premium plastic, I find that Teebirds don't really beat in under normal play. Whatever flight they have new they'll maintain for a long, long time.

Now, if you were talking pro or DX Teebirds, those things can beat fairly rapidly.

Unless you hit trees or cart paths continually I wouldn't worry about your Teebirds losing stability.

uDisc's accuracy varies quite a bit by cell phone provider and by location. If you really want to know your distances, you can go throw in a football field (360' being goalpost to goalpost). Not a huge deal though. I think whether you're throwing 325' or 350' or 375', the advice given thus far is all still valid.

DX isn't always the best choice for beginners (most of the time tho yes), but in this case 100% check out a DX teebird as close to 168g as you can find.

If you want it to fade more, keep it in the bag but add a Star Teebird in the same weight. If you want it to turn more, check out a DX Leopard in the same weight. As the DX Teebird wears, it loses fade and turns into a laser fairway that you will likely want to complement with another fresh DX Teebird either way, and so on.

Alternatively, if you want to go with premium plastic, a star teebird accompanied by a star or gstar leopard or leopard3 or FD or TL or TL3 (yikes innova) is a nice choice too.

Pop Top Teebirds are the least HSS of all Teebirds except Teebird3s. Why this is I have no idea. But all my domey Teebirds are closer to 7/6/-1.5/2 and all my domey Teebird3s are closer to 7/4/0/3.

A Teebird with dome can hit 350’ with ease. Whereas a normal Teebird will take a little more effort. It’s a weird quark I’ve noticed with the mold. However, when I try to toss them to hit 400’ they just turn and roll whereas a normal Teebird has a shot of reaching it.


I have way more Teebirds than I like to admit and have thrown them as my main driver the past three years.

The Viking was supposedly created because the Champ Teebird molded up so much more stable than the DX Teebird. I don't know if this is a true story or not, but I absolutely think a Champ Viking is the answer to a straighter Champ Teebird.

Champs take forever, if they change much at all, however, stars can cycle slowly. I had one for about 5-6 years I lost recently but man I loved it. Laser beams for me to 335. Not much movement either way. I added an old echo star in too that seems to be beating in fairly quick. It's even developed a very slight turn already.

Echo star is the best teebird IMO. Too bad they are OOP.
