He had been using C-line FD3s for this slot recently, I believe.

He had a metal flake fd3(less OS, but still OS) and a c-line fd3(closer to a firebird) and he appeared to really like them, that's why it's so surprising to me that he made the switch

Is it a Sexton FB? He was using those before the move to the FD3.

I wonder if the switch has more to do with going to an all-Innova bag than any other reason...

The Firebird is considerably more HSS than the FD3. I've been noticing this more as I've been working with the FD3. I was hoping to replace my Firebird or Criminal with the FD3 but honestly, it lacks the beef needed for certain shots.

It's just interesting, at least to me, that McBeth went through the Firebird, Monster, Sexton Firebird, then FD3s, and now back to FBs when it looked like he really liked the FD3s. Maybe Dave Dunipace will make him a FirebirdX3...

The cynic in me says that the reason he made the switches was because Innova won't take Kenny's name off the Champ Firebird. McBeth is just looking to his brand. Another world championship would net him another sig disc, but it won't mean much sales-wise unless it's a mold he throws that either is popular or can become popular by replacing something else in people's bags. The Monster and FD3 COULD have been that disc, but it seems he's never liked throwing them as well because he always ends up coming back to a Firebird. I think the only reason I've ever heard him give officially for switching away from Firebirds was they weren't quite "comfortable" for him or something to that effect. If that were true though, he wouldn't keep coming back to them...

Or I could be completely out to lunch. Just idle speculation.
