What makes the Marwede birds better?
Sextons seem to have some shoulder and a little bit less initial stability. The Marwede ones I’ve run into so far are as close to the old FAF Firebirds as any I’ve seen. Very flat tight top and a little firmer.

Was at a local shop today that got an Innova order in as I was shopping. Most recent run of champ firebirds looks flat and a little gummy.

I agree with this 100%. They are almost two different discs, crazy to think they come from the same mold. I enjoy both for completely different purposes.

It’s the plastic used not the mold.

For sure, just pointing out the two runs cover two completely different slots in the bag.

I’ve been out of the game for a bit, just coming back. Looked at some of the prices of 15, 16, 17, and usdgc, Sextons… did I miss something? Why are these so expensive? They were always pricey, but this is a new level. Might have to unload my stacks in storage…

If you have stacks in storage, you will make a small fortune.

I'll just throw this here, how's the Invictus compare to the Firebird in stability? Star to Star.

Grrr. Lost my thumber disc today. It was a board flat champ Firebird. It was clear plastic and I’m actually amazed I haven’t lost it sooner.

Went to a local shop for a replacement and was pretty disappointed with how much dome these newer runs seem to have. Picked up the flattest one I could find but it definitely isn’t as flat as the one I lost.

At least this one is yellow so maybe it will be easier to find.
