Yes, all Fireballs I own or have seen are flat and comfortable. Firebirds were always really comfortable for me too for what it's worth, but they seem to have more variance in their dome.

Note that neutron fireballs tend to be run in a slightly softer blend. Not sure why, but I love the way it grips. It's one reason I bag the mold.

Super stable like regular champ firebirds or more akin to a sexton firebird/felon?

Been nearly a decade since I tossed a Firebird, but I'd say it's like a "typical" Firebird that's been used for a summer. Very OS with an aggressive fade, capable of nice skips, easy flicks and laughs at headwinds, but it does have a little glide.

That's my seasoned SE Fireball, at least. I've thrown some others in Neutron that flew the same, and I've seen some neutrons with extra high PLH that fly more like the extra OS Firebirds.

Try to compare a few if you can, and buy the PLH that fits the flight you're going for. Lower for a broken in Firebird, as high as possible for pure beef.

I need to get a good stiff overstable one. The last one I had (and all the ones available locally) was the new gummy N that doesn't skip well on grass. Fireball needs to come to the ground hot!

For those of you who throw a fireball, what other very OS discs do you carry? I have a good backhand and forehand (after some work) and am currently running entropy, resistor, fireball and energy but have been looking into simplifying it into three molds.

I have yet to see a stiff Fireball.

Entropy, Fireball and Dimension are my 3. I think fireballs power down well enough to drop the Resistor, which I bagged for years.

that‘s exactly what i did. i bagged both for a long time until i realized that my fireball can easily replace the resistor.

Entropy, Pyro, Resistor and Fireball are my OS side, Entropy and Resistor see most of the action.
