The Thunderbird comes from strong bloodlines. The stability of a TeeBird with the speed of a Valkyrie; it can be described as a seasoned Firebird with less fade. The Thunderbird is predictable in wind and a great long range placement driver. Pros will appreciate the shot shaping ability of this driver while less experienced players will find a consistent, predictable flight.
“The Thunderbird is a disc that flies with the control of a fairway driver but has the long range capacity of a distance driver. Equally useful for backhand and forehand shots alike. Will definitely be a staple in my bag for years to come.” – Jeremy Koling
Excellent disc to learn forehands with. I now use my G-star Thunderbird for 60-80% power forehands that I need to finish straight or distance backhands into headwinds.

Great disc. Have had a few Thunderbirds. GStar, Star and Champ. Champion starts overstable and breaks in slowly. GStar breaks in much easier. For some reason this mound in Star can be super beef and take ages to break in. Once dialed in the Thunderbird really is like a longer, faster Teebird

As mentioned previously, this is basically a longer Teebird. Great for the windy rounds and when you need that gentle right to left fade.
A must have in anyone’s bag, I carry two, one more beat in that than other. WHAT A DISC. Stable, beats well and great flight.

If you’ve played disc golf for a decent amount of time, you know what the Thunderbird brings. Handles torque and has a predictable finish. For me, it’s great for those 70-90m shots that require a reliable flight path.
