Firebird, Monster, Banshee, Predator, Tsunami, X2, Xtreme (anything that's really overstable, fast spinning, and over 170g, heavier the better for into the wind). Buy them in good candy plastic and you'll be able to throw them into the wind for a longer period.

You'll wonder how you ever played without one.

I will be throwing my new Firebird for the first time on Saturday. Excellent. I have never thrown one, so it will be interesting.

Twirly has heavy Firebirds and heavy Predators.
I love my Predator. Love it!

PEACH


I would say predictable, as opposed to interesting. Peach, you can expect it to turn left with a RHBH and turn right with a RHFH. You'll find all kinds of shot to use it on.

Cheers!

Mammoth weather out there. Going out to throw Yetis with the wind. (maybe a couple thrown into the wind for kicks and giggles)
