I'll add on to the comments on this

DB2s seem to come in 2 kinds
Domey or Flat(ish)

Domey are perhaps the most OS Doombird I've thrown.
Flattish ones (although the one I had was seasoned) was straighter...maybe Koling Thunderbird esque

DB3s are flatter and more likely what most people would want from their FD3. I didn't find the DB3 to have more glide.

In terms of Doombirds my experience would be most OS to least OS: Domey DB2, DB3, DB1, flatter DB2

Anyone else throwing the color glow FD3s? It has become my go to forehand disc as well as a staple in my backhand lineup. Flies more like a beefy teebird or a Thunderbird than a firebird. Between the fd3 and the Tl3 I have the entire fairway part of my bag covered.

I really like the FD3 but I don't want to struggle to find a flat DoomBird in a decent color. If they made production flat S-Lines in bright solid colors I'd have a serious collection.

Yes. I love it. Maybe the glidiest run of FD3 I have tried. I really like it for backhand shots. I actually don’t like it as much for forehands as my swirly S-lines. Usually if I’m throwing a forehand I am counting on a skip. The color glow plastic just doesn’t skip like my other FD3s.

Definitely doesn't fly like a normal FD3 for me. I only throw FD3's for FH's (I'll use a PD for BH shots at that range/stability), and the newest CG run is too flippy for power FH's. If you can control the flip, they will bomb. I've hit 360' on mine, which is a good rip for me. But for now I've decided to stick to my DB3.

I use the Discmaniac CGFD3 both FH and BH
it's not too dissimilar too a domey CD2 (i.e. Roaming Thunder 1)...so I would agree that they don't fly like a normal FD3

I also use a random combination of DB1, 2 or 3 (depending on what I take out of my bins on a particular day) but with the extra stability these provide these would be more situational...spikes, flexes, headwinds

I like the softer grip on the CGFD3s and "easier" flight...I reach for it more often than a truly OS version like the DB1,2,3

I've got some of the Mobile Store Exclusive "first run" flat CGFD3s but haven't tried any of those yet.

The flat mobile store ones were on the truly OS side from what I read.
