The Firebird’s combination of superior speed and stability make it possible to throw drives into the wind with confidence. An excellent disc for throwing long range flex shots. A favorite of sidearm and overhead throwers, too. This disc is designed for professional level players.
Until recently I had never had a disc like the Firebird in my bag! I throw it hard and flat and it still fades hard at the end. It is my go to disc for certain situations and I am pretty sure it has saved me a million strokes! I also use it for getting out of trouble shots like a thumber, tomahawk, and a flick disc from an awkward stance. I love it.
If you need to throw a driver in a howling headwind, reach for the Firebird like all the top pros. There isn’t any driver remotely close to the Firebird in the wind, as a sidearm driver, for knife hyzers, and for overhand shots. If I ever see a player without a Firebird, I make sure they know what they’re missing!
