I'm the one who's beat. I just bought two brand new dx Firebirds, 150 and 175, thinking I'd have one fairly straight and a hard turner. I got just that--but the lighter disc is the one with the hard turn. I don't get it. Anyone else with similar results?

Nice necro bump, there.

What you describe sometimes does happen. Weight is less of a factor than how the disc molds up. I've had lightweight Starlite Terns that were much more overstable than Star or even Champion Terns, as an example.

The good news is that they are DX, so if you go throw them both a lot, they're going to season in more quickly than premium plastic would. And the real good news is that you get to have fun throwing the discs while that's going on...

DX Firebirds were amazing back in the day. Now they are crap. Flies like a less reliable DX Eagle in the best case. Do not buy.

Lol.

I throw 166g DX Firebirds. I have no real issue with them. They are not automatic beef like a Champ Firebird; they can flip some into a headwind. They fly twice as far as a Champ Firebird for me, though.

There is a hole on my home course with a pond to the right, the DX Firebird is the disc for that shot. Unfortunately I don't know how they cycle because I never make it through a whole year without putting a disc into that pond.

I've found the DX Thunderbird to have a longer life cycle than the DX Firebird. The latter develop high speed turn more quickly in my experience.
