That surprises me, but I haven't thrown a lot of them. Either way, I would grab a star/champ one and try it for a few months.

Mine are/were realtively flat.

I’m actually hoping to lose the turn but maybe keep some of that glide. Was curious about the color glow specifically in the Teebird mold. I have several other discs in that plastic and really like it.

I've always thought color glow teebirds were pretty beefy. As far as the T3 goes, I've thrown a glow T3 from I believe the first batch that were ran and it was pretty overstable, recently ordered some for a tournament this last fall and the PLH was lower than the other and flew much more like a T3 should.

As far as regular TL's go, I've seen some flatter and I've seen some with stupid amounts of dome...star TL's primarily the culprits.

Based on what you're describing I'd say what you're looking for is a TL3. Unfortunately I haven't seen them in glow or color glow, but there are champ TL3's out there in a very nice gummy pearly plastic.

I think what I’m hoping for is that they fly a similar line to my champion metal flake Teebird3 but with a little more glide and a touch more distance.
I love my Anthony Barela Champion Glow Teebird3 - it's definitely a little glidier than a fresh Star/Champ Teebird. I think you'll like em!

Thanks for all of the advice.

Looks like my Teebirds shipped today.

The way shipping has been going these days I should have them in a couple of weeks. Lol.

So after I talk up using a TL instead of a teebird, my champ TL is now turning just a bit for me. I am happy to see this, as that is the shot shape I was hoping to see when I first picked up a TL. I think it compliments a more OS teebird very nicely. The shortest shot I would use a TL for is probably 275 and the longest is probably 350, but that may be pushing it.

Anyway, if you are looking for no turn, a fresh TL could be the perfect disc, but it looks like they can break in to being something you didn't end up wanting.

Most recent run of Champ TL3 I got is a little gummier and slightly less stable than the previous runs, for what that's worth. They are nice and pearly and grippy.

Champ Glow TL3 would be awesome. Luster or Metal Flake would be my first pick for next TL3 plastic though as I prefer a firm feel.

Well I must be lucky. My color glow Teebirds showed up today. That was pretty quick compared to other things shipped to me recently.

The plastic is just as I expected, grippy and gummy and a little flexible but not too grippy or gummy or flexible. Mild dome and feel really good in the hand. They’re in the bag and hopefully I’ll get out and play a round in the next couple of days and see how they fly.
