Default Any love for the FL??

So I accidentally stumbled on this disc when I thought I was trading for a CE FX...Turns out it was an L mold, so I threw it just for fun and fell in love. That particular was quite beat in, so it is very very straight, but I started throwing newer ones and am extremely impressed. However, I don't know anyone else that actually throws them. Anyone??

No, I like the beef. I do think it would be cool to see a Firebird X though.

They have a Firebird X, it's the current Firebird. There were plain F firebirds, but I don't remember what happened to them >.>

Ive never thrown one but I imagine a DX firebird (x) could fill that spot if you want a cheap easy to find alternative

when they beat theyre super funny to throw. they turn over then out of no where they fight out and fade hard like they usually do. i dont see any practical use out of it, but a beat fb is a funny trick shot

FLs are beast. I discovered them same way you did. Man that is such a sweet disc, you can get sweet skips too. Great for side arm and everything.

Really? I had no idea, I'm glad they added more fade though it makes it a very useful disc.

I threw one for a little while. Reminds me of a PD. Once it beat up it was useless. Random turn one time the next time it would fly normal and then it would fly like a regular firebird. I got so frustrated that I threw it in the woods and turned my back. RIP FL
