Default Can someone explain this

What's up guys? Can someone explain the difference between a TL and a teebird. I have a TL that I love but see everyone loves Teebirds so i wanted to just know what the differences between these discs are

A lot like the Eagle, Eagle L situation. EX fades harder than EL, Teebird fades harder than TLs. TL flies pretty much like a broken in TB. They're both pretty nice.

Common thought is that the TL is essentially Teebird-Less (Stable).

Some will argue that it's Teebird-Long, but that's just dumb.

On the name, I've also heard Teebird-Leopard (top plate of a Teebird, bottom of a Leopard= TL)

They can coexist in the same bag i think (see my sig). My beat star bird and my used star tl are different enough that i can justify keeping them both around. I love the star TL for a slow turnover and i have a champ one i really like for putting it on any line and holding it. I carry two star teebirds one newish and overstable and a beat one for awesome dead straight laser beams

Tl = beat in teebird. If you don't have a beat star or Champ teebird a tl is a great option. If I ran out of beat Teebirds I'd carry a TL... But that's not happening anytime soon.

You heard wrong. As far as I know, there isn't a single "L" molded anything that shares a mold piece with Leopards. :themoreyouknowgif:

Bro D knows!

Overall, the TL is a straighter flying Teebird. I have thrown some pretty beefy TLs though.

i hear people saying leopard bottom all the time. funny that the leopard has a weird notch in the wing that none of the L molds share. plus how can you use a speed 6 wing for a speed 9 or 10 disc (sl, fl)

they coexist well in my bad. i don't have a beat star TB so I use my TL for straight shots w/no fade or shots where i want a little turn. TB comes out if there is some head wind or some fade is OK.
