Default Birdie?

I find my DX birdie to be indispensable for really long go for it puts or even short approach shots. Even if I miss it's going to leave me close enough for a very doable put. Anyone else use this disc with similar results? Could anyone point me to a similar Discraft or Gateway disc?

Discraft Pro D Magnet. Once you beat it in, it will fly almost dead straight, but unlike the Birdie, if you need to throw a hyzer or anny around something the Magnet will work better than the Birdie will.

If you like the birdie you might like a Wolf for a mid-range. It has the thumbtrack and similar thickness.

Any beach frisbee works well, that's what I use my birdie for. Catch.



Try the hydra. I feel it's a deep rim like the birdie.

The Hydra will fade more than the Birdie. The Magnet will not

I think the discraft rattler is similar, but I'm not positive on that.

I threw a birdie for a while. I was amazed how much better my putting got when I started throwing aviars. Especially in the wind. Took so much finesse to throw a birdie well. An aviar, well, it's like throwing a ball into the basket. Very predictable, every time. For long putts I find S curving an aviar hits just as many (if not more) putts and makes the come back putt shorter.
