I'm looking to replace my lost firebird from Mountain.

I need a max weight, or close to it.

Will trade or pay cash.

Please PM or post on this thread.

Thank You Shocked

What are you offering in Trades?

I have a few FBs at home, but I am rather partial to them.

Too be honest I don't have much for trade.

I have a brand new Zone you might like Thumber? Heard you talking about you tossing one.

Spike, I'll get you whatever you feel it is worth? I need some more firebirds and I would consider acquiring more for trades or cash or whatever...

Spike PM on facebook and I can offer something.

Thumber can you bring a few tomorrow you wouldn't mind trading or selling?

I will be at SHIRE tomorrow night.

Good news....I still have a few beauties left

Bad News....most are 11X and not really for sale, unless you are willing to pay $40+ per disc

Good News....Twirly sells FBs much cheaper than that

What the value in 11x versions? Why are they worth more?

They have magic in them

They are very consistent and out of production so they are now hard to find

Flat and stiff

Plus I really like them so they have more intrinsic value to me than maybe the market would bear

Paging Ken Little!

Bring a few you wouldn't mind parting ways with. And maybe if you could help me pick a few from twirly.

I'm not an experienced disc selector, I get confused easily frown

11x plastic is valued due to it being a little more consistent and durable than later runs of Champion plastic. It really isn't worth the increase in price, especially considering the new plastic Innova is putting out. Just look for a flatter Firebird at Twirly's. A full weight Champ FB will be crazy overstable. I would recommend Star if you want it to be a big distance driver. For my longer Firebird drives I like mid-160's Champ.
