The Innova Champion Firebird is a distance driver that is overstable. It is one of Innova's most popular upwind drivers that works well into a headwind. The Firebird’s combination of superior speed and stability make it possible to throw drives into the wind with confidence. An excellent disc golf disc for throwing long range flex shots. A favorite of sidearm and overhead throwers, too. This disc is designed for professional level players.
It is a great choice for headwinds, power players, big hyzers, flex shots, and stable sidearm shots.
Speed 9, Glide 3, Turn 0, Fade 4

"If you need a disc to go left no matter what, this is the right disc for you. You can throw this disc as hard as you want and it will not flip over. It is my favorite disc for strong head winds and hyzer shots. This disc is also over-stable in all weights!" - Paul McBeth
"Until recently I had never had a disc like the Firebird in my bag! I throw it hard and flat and it still fades hard at the end. It is my go to disc for certain situations and I am pretty sure it has saved me a million strokes! I also use it for getting out of trouble shots like a thumber, tomahawk, and a flick disc from an awkward stance. I love it." - Hannah Leatherman
"The Firebird is really fast and truly predictable. If it’s windy and there is trouble around, I pull out my Firebird." - Steve Brinster
"The Firebird is probably the most used disc in my bag. I can pick a spot on the ground and land it there just about every time." - Will Schusterick

The Innova FL is a distance driver that is straight to slightly overstable. Also known as the Firebird-L, the FL was designed to have more glide and less fade at the end of the flight than a traditional Firebird. It is an excellent driver for windy days as well as sidearm throws and overhead throws. The FL is a great first step into the world of overstable drivers. 21.2 cm diameter.

"The Firebird is the gold standard of overstable drivers, and the FL is an even easier-to-throw version of the original." - Christian Dietrich
