If you like the feel of GStar plastic in your hand, then yes, it's a good way to go.

Agreed; I'm not a fan of GStar (as some here are aware), and y'all will have NO competition from me getting a GStar Teebird. But for those who do like it, it's the next step up from DX...

DX Teebirds are great. Lots of glide, long flights. Why are you thinking of getting G Star? Do you like the feel of the plastic, or are you concerned about durability, or some other reason(s)?

Give the DX Teebirds some time. I'll also echo the merits of cycling. Throw one of them until it gets beat in. Then you'll have two Teebirds, a fresh one and a worn in one that together can cover a wider range of shots. If and when you need something more stable/durable then buy another in your plastic of choice.

One of the things I wish I'd done differently when starting out is buying fewer discs. Unless you are playing really rocky courses, or losing discs easily, a couple of DX discs are all you really need when starting out.

When I first started, I picked up a Champ Teebird with the teebird stamp. That was one of my favorite discs... and then I lost it. Anyone know where I could find another?

You mean 12x Climos? They are available at just about every single store that sells discs

I don't think so. It had the "teebird" stamp, like the DX's. It could have been a 2013 Brinster Teebird.

DX Teebird are wonderful things. I keep one in my bag for long-straight water shots. Just learn to avoid trees and they'll beat into lasers. Haven't thrown GStar birds but I read they're really nice. Strange that I don't as I love my GStar Thunderbirds, Destroyers, and Rhynos.

As for Star, they've got the stability, especially the New AJ ones which fly very close to my PFN Star when new. My FN Star and 12x champs are fairly understable (FN Star has more dome and new 12x are close to AJ) and don't handle wind too well but they don't flip and go on me. I'd rate them as -1/2...ish. I will say the champion ones have a pretty awesome amount of glide to them.

Teebird are wonderful discs, everybody should bag one...or seven.

I know what you're talking about. The Innova Proshop had some Champ Valkyries with the DX Valkyrie stamp, and I got a couple some time ago.

Ergo, you might try the Proshop for DX-stamped Champ Teebirds...

That has to be what it was. I just couldn't think of how to describe it. It was a big, bold DX stamp too. I didn't think it had the other graphics on it that the Brinster has.

None in the proshop...

How did the one you lost fly when new?

Might have been a totem TB or a circle stamp. They have done a couple releases on the proshop. They fetch a fair penny on the used market, and sell out very fast when offered. I have never owned one, as I have plenty of Brinsters to hold down my bookend TB. They were touted as being OS TBs.

I like Champion Teebirds because they maintain the same flight pattern for quite a few seasons.

With DX plastic, you can throw it until it starts to behave differently (less stable) and then replace it with a new DX Teebird. Then you will have a stable disc and a less stable disc to throw depending on the shot. (Seasoning)

Personally, I don't like cycling discs and like to have a stable Champ Teebird and compliment it with a Discmania FD, rather than have seasoned DX Teebirds that have beat in.

G-star is nice for cold weather but gets too floppy in the heat. IMO.
