seems to me like the DX TeeRex and DX Starfire and DX Wraith -- while great, consistent Distance discs -- aren't understable enough to maximize tailwinds and flirt with world record distance...
of course the more overstable stuff is a lot more forgiving if you are heavy on power and light on technique...
I have a really nice beat up tee-rex, the first one I bought at the Bowling Green Ams. Still over stable, but when thrown flat it fights hard to try and flip to anhyzer but just doesnt quite get there. It ends up flying longer and straighter than a wraith put on the same line. I would be willing to expect someone out there using a dx-teerex that is light enough or beat enough to hit some amazing long distance D attempts in a long D competition. Knowing how low speed overstable that disc can be, if you manage to get a great hyzer flip out of the disc with the right tail wind, not only will it go forever, but if you hit your line right, when the disc finally flexs back out, the wind will push it like a kite out of hell.
As for teebirds, sure its a great disc, I just see more accuracy, reguardless of the situation, distance, or speed from my tee-rex. Could be I control a larger rim disc better?
Dave, a faster goblin? That sounds so sweet! I would love to test out some of those bad boys! I love the goblin and still have not decided whether or not it will replace either aviars or coyotes. I know the aviar will stay, but how is the goblin doing in sales? I would hate to see it go the way of the bulldog, my favorite windy day putter.
