sorry I should have said CFR PD as I did not mean specifically only the DGR version

for example the Desert ones were really flat and somewhat OS

my CFR CPD (DGR stamped) is extremely comparable to my very flat Glo Firebird...i would use either one. It is pretty much a toss up.

I find flat CFR PD's to be extremely suitable Firebird replacements.

Not quiiiite as OS, but adjusted with hyzer you can get the same effect. They sidearm and overhand great, just like a Firebird would. They throw xlnt into headwinds, again like a Firebird.

But this is coming from somebody with honestly 350' power at most, not like the other 90% of DGCR members who claim to throw 400+ so easily.

That's pretty much the distances I was throwing too pablo. My arm maxed at 350' before I took a break and lost a lot of my distance.

I haven't thrown a lot of Firebirds, but I always felt like they were faders right out of my hand (especially the flatties). I liken CFR PDs to be more like Predators in that they will travel straight, even without headwinds, before fading. Maybe that's because I throw the 169s...? I compare them to Predators because I tried Preds for a month or two and never adjusted to the rim, especially when I could accomplish the same stuff with the same disc as my main driver in a different plastic.

My Starfire is the "fade straight out of my hand" type. Definitely looking for something that will stay flat then fade.

Ya I throw PPDs and TDs 375'. So it is hard for me to use the CPDs in a way other than OS duties

I'll speak up for the Boatman, since no one else has. It will hold a nice straight line if thrown flat and low and give you a nice predictable hard fade at the end. It is one of my most predictable discs I have. I do not however use it for distance shots. I have other discs for that. It is used primarily for hook shots. over water shots, and anythng I know I need predictability. I did try the Villain and wasn't very fond of it. I find the Giant as mentioned earlier as a much better alternative. Have never thrown the Pd can't give any feedback.
