Review: This is the end of my second season playing disc. I was kind of disappointed that my drive distance has not progressed much past 300 feet. (I just need to practice more.) I have used many, many so-called fast driver discs from both Discraft and Innova. There is no magic disc out there that will give me more distance with the same effort. I have at least a dozen different driver molds. Not one of them goes farther than the others. (If you throw with 300' of snap, that's all you're gonna get!) So, I went the other way. I am refining my run-up with a very repeatable X-step and working on my snap. Enter the Star Tee Bird. It is a slower speed rated disc. I am losing exactly zero distance with this disc. I am gaining a lot more control. I use the heavier 175gr for wind and the 167gr for normal go for distance drives. Innova advertises their discs perfectly. Deadly accurate.

Review: After throwing discs such as Eagle and Valkyrie, the Teebird shocked me at the amount of fade it displayed. After a few rounds, i learned that this disc takes more arm than my othe discs to fly properly, is relatively easy to control, and extremely predictable. Flies well in all wind conditions, and serves the purpose of all fairway drivers: getting you right up to the basket. You can't beat the steady, reliable fade of a Teebird. Star plastic has a nice feel to it, and after throwing a DX eagle and Champion valkyrie, it feels good and is still sturdy. this disc will get a lot of use from me.

Review: I really like this disc (yellow version). At first I was surprised by the amount of low speed fade when new. But after using it for many rounds, I find it to be my most predictable driver. It is great for a whole variety of stall shots where my fade has to come at a certain time in the flight line. I also use it for long two-finger rollers, some sidearm shots, overhand shots, predictable fades, low skip approaches, and lots of low ceiling shots where I can turn it slightly at the start for a low tight S-curve. It is still a Teebird to me, meaning it is pretty reliable at faster and slower speeds, as well as being pretty forgiving on nose angle. I still use DX Teebirds as main straight drivers, but this disc complements the DX version very well. Easier for me than a Champion Teebird, though those have their uses too. Also perfect as a straight driver into light/moderate wind. And as for the Star plastic, well it scuffed a bit early on, but even using it for overhands and two-finger rollers several times a round, the flight characteristics remain very stable and predictable.
