I wouldn’t say flat as a board, but it’s flat. Rises up a little off the shoulder then levels out

Blue is 11x, white is CE, orange is fresh 12x

CE plh is way higher, orange has what I call dome, at least it feels that way, blue is kinda in between

Innova should definitely give Barsby the pro eagle.
Between the different weights and plastics that you can get the EX in, I don't see the need for anything else.

A seasoned Star is a thing of beauty and sneaky long. I've had faster fairways seem like they go further but found that my DX and seasoned Star landing in the same area. They appear slower in the air but get similar distance due to their glide.

Only if you want the most shapable and easiest to range fairway made by Innova. Teebirds are just worse eagles if you ask me.

The great thing about Eagles is that they're always useful. The really OS ones are rarely ridiculously so and they don't really get really understable except in DX. And it's a good disc in every plastic it comes in.


And sometimes you find one that looks like pink glass:



This one is beefy.

The only reason I haven’t bought one yet is because OS might overlap with my g star thunderbirds, stable with my teebrids, and understable with my valks. I’d still love to try one though

Eagke is a good disc. Only reason I do not bag one is because the TB is much more comfortable in my hand

I would bag an Eagle if I could find a current production FLAT Star or Champ Eagle. I have some older opaque 12x and 11x Eagles that are flat (or close to it). They’re great for forehand shots. All the new premium plastic Eagles seem to have a decent amount of dome to them. I would love to use Eagles as my primary sidearm fairway driver. I just hate throwing domey discs forehand. If I throw domey discs sidearm they always seem to come out with wobble. So for now I’m flicking Firebirds, Thunderbirds and Teebird3s.

I agree a Egale 3 would be a nice disc to have, a nearly flat top disc that has micro dome the problem that majority of Champion and Star Eagles have at the moment. DX can find them but does not last as long in the right flight.
