Innova TeeBird Review

What Innova says about the TeeBird:

“The TeeBird is one of our most accurate and reliable fairway drivers. It has a combination of straight flight, high glide and good speed that make it accurate and long flying both upwind and downwind. It is a popular choice for pros including 12 time World Champion and Hall-of-Famer Ken Climo as well as 2009 World Champion Avery Jenkins. The Teebird is a very versatile driver; Excellent for pin-point accuracy, distance, and sidearm.”

Right out of the box the TeeBird is pretty overstable. When thrown flat, it will fly dead straight with a lot of fade as it begins to slow down. After it breaks in, this disc will glide straight for days. Put the disc on a hyzer and expect a hook shot. If you release this disc on an anhyzer angle it will flex back. I really like the TeeBird for hyzer shots and skip shots in the fairway. It also works great with my forehand.

The TeeBird is often described as a slower Thunderbird or the Thunderbird as a faster TeeBird. I think that comparison is accurate. If you’ve thrown a Thunderbird before you’ll have a good understanding of how the Teebird flies. If you love your Thunderbird, grabbing a TeeBird makes a lot of sense. Use it for similar shots that you don’t need as much distance.

The champion plastic makes the disc a bit more overstable than it’s DX or Star counterparts. So if you a looking for a less stable version, pick up a Teebird in one of those plastics. I wish I had grabbed a star or Gstar version of the TeeBird because I can’t grip the champion plastic as well. Other players like or even prefer Champion but for me, I need a gripper plastic.   

This disc is the perfect go-to driver. It’s a workhorse for medium drives and anytime you find yourself in the fairway. It has a nice stable flight so you’ll be able to hit gaps with ease. I grab the Teebird out of my bag anytime I’m facing down a narrow tunnel shot. Because of its stability, I use it a lot for flex shots.     

In this Innova TeeBird Review, I’d recommend the Teebird to intermediate and advanced players. These players will have the arm speed to get the stable flight the Teebird is made for. You can trust this disc. If you really rip into it this disc might turn over a some but it will come back and finish left. Newer disc golfers might use the Teebird for hyzer shots or in the wind but wouldn’t get that much use out of it.

If you are an intermediate player looking for a stable fairway driver, you’ll love Innova’s Teebird. Pick this disc up and you won’t be sorry.
