The DD Prime, and by extension I would imagine the Retro and Origio, discs apparently start very overstable in overstable molds. Now that I take a closer look though, it doesn't look like any of the Trilogy overstable fairways come in base plastic. The Verdict is the only one that comes to mind that comes in Prime, which I understand start very stable and probably go farther than a firebird anyway.

Possibly a suregrip blaze or spirit if those are around at all?

That's honestly a tough one - seems like the firebird is one of the few OS drivers produced in base plastic. I would also recommend a DX Banshee which fly real nice. Can't vouch for how DX starfires fly but that's the next click up.

First run DX Thunderbird flew overstable and had an awesome feel. I'm not 100% sure that the later runs fly the same tho

You could try a Pro-D Crush, or maybe a force. those are both pretty OS and come in baseline plastic, infinite has them for like 8 bucks

I don't know if either are similar to an FB but if you are just looking for a cheap meathook over hazardous terrain they would be viable options

Champion Firebird X-Outs for 8-11$. I just bought the last one off Marshalls, its clear, fingerprinty and flat as ****. Feels extremely good in the hand and it only cost me $9.50. In comparison to all of my friends 12x KC firebirds, it is much flatter and grips more

I have been eyeballing the 175g orange x-out on infinitediscs for awhile now, you should snag it. It looks flat and grippy too

As far as I can tell the only defect are two black specks in the rim deep within the plastic.
