11x Firebird

Postby Ferch » Wed Jul 14, 2010 10:30 am

I have been searching on the net for an 11x Firebird. Finding one isn't too hard, but taking the chance that it's not flat is. I was wondering if anyone has an extra and isn't asking too much(over 25) for it. If not, does a flat Star fly similar when thrown as a thumber?

Ive seen a lot of people use excals as well. They dont have the exact same flight, but I've seen people do quite well with them

I stopped by yesterday and I think I saw 2. He has so many discs there it may take a minute to find them.

I've seen this disc. It is more like a fast Extreme. Super Fn overstable.

FYI...Apparently Innova has a new mold piece for the newest runs of Firebirds. Supposedly they're coming out flat and stable again (like the 11x). I guess an easy way to tell them apart from the other 12x Firebirds is the WWW tooling on the bottom.

Discraft made them years ago, it's a Predator

I don't think they are that similar. Preds are significantly longer with less HSS once they beat a bit from what I've seen.

My experience with the Pred is they are a little quicker but the same if not more overstable than the Firebird.

My two cents worth on these two.

The Predator has more of a gliding hyzer where the firebird has more of a dump hyzer. I think that is part of why the Predator has greater distance potential over the Firebird. I would say that they are comparable in stability, with the Firebird having a slight bit more in the fade department. Both are great disc's for that overstable fairway driver slot in your bag. Personally I like the firebird over the predator because it is easier for me to throw a thumber with. Throwing a thumber with a predator is no fun at all.

I would agree with that. I have heard the best thumber discs from Discraft are the Flick and now I'm hearing the Z Force.

Joe, Predator compared to the Force - does the small wing affect the thumber? too slow to get D w/ the thumber or what?
