The Birdie is our best "go for it" disc and an excellent approach disc. It is a slow, straight flyer with a sure Thumtrac™ grip that makes it easy to go for it without worry.
The Birdie is a slow, straight flyer with our Thumtrac™ grip for a sure release. It has great chain catching ability. Great for approach shots, as it flies straight and slow, start to finish. It is one of our best “go for it” discs as it doesn’t go far past the basket on misses, and stays put when it hits the ground. A good disc for those players making the conversion from flat edged disc sports: Catch, Ultimate, Freestyle, etc.
The Birdie is a unique disc, and a very compelling option for people, who love a very slow, straight, hand-filling putter, with a thumbtrac just inside the top of the flight plate. Many people find holding the Birdie to be very satisfying, and this is the key aspect of selecting a putting putter. (As opposed to a throwing putter.)
The Birdie has a very square leading edge, thus the "1" speed rating. This makes it very easy to range the disc for upshots, as a throwing disc, and a very controllable putting disc.
The Birdie has a sister disc, oddly called the Polecat (who knows why) which is a shallower Birdie without the Thumbtrac. A very popular disc, and Queenstown's Innova-sponsored Hemi Te-Awhitu would rather fight than switch! Something about "from his cold, dead hands".
Recommended as a throw-n-catch disc because of its lack of speed and glide.
