Default Glo Firebird - Comments/Suggestions...

Pondering on ordering one....
not much info out there on this disc, outside - "lots of people have them."

My assessment/Guess:
Glo Plastic Tends to make things:
- more overstable.
- fly farther

via online research:
The current/last run is very flat.

This should make a very fast, very flat and overstable disc.
How does it compare to the 11x, etc...

I know it's going to be a meathook out of the shipping envelope.... but i also think it could be an amazing FH disc (for me). I am hoping it could replace my Banshee (champ 8/10) and be the intermediary between the Rhyno and Boss.

My glow Firebird is super beefy, even at 167g. It is also very stiff plastic and just as flat as my 11Xs.

I just got a glo fb about two weeks about, 165g, so flat it's almost concaved, and too overstable my arm. I have an 11x X-out that is crazy stable, but not like this bad boy.
