"The TeeBird is the workhorse of all my drivers because: 1. It has plenty of distance. 2. It is super dependable upwind or downwind. 3. It is very predictable. 4. It is the Roc of drivers. " - Steve Wisecup
"The TeeBird should be a staple of every golfer's bag. When new, it flies straight with a smooth hyzer finish. As it gets beat up it flies straight with very little deviation from its flight path." - Mike Solt

For the sake of comparing:
The TeeBird+ differs from the TeeBird in that it is made from the Plus Mold. The angle of the rim under the disc was changed in that it angles outwards slightly more than the regular rim which is more of a 90° angle to the bottom of the disc. This slight angling of the rim provides a smoother release. Everything else is the same. There is a limited supply of Plus Mold TeeBirds. Try it before they are gone!
The TeeBird-L fairway driver is straight. The TL is the brother of the reliable TeeBird. The “L” stands for “Less Overstable” and “Longer”. This disc has the same great speed and glide as the TeeBird, but is straighter flying with less fade at the end of the flight. If you are looking for a straight flying maximum fairway driver, the TL is the answer. It is a great choice for a first fairway driver, tight fairway driver, placement driver, turnover shots, and beginner disc golfers. Beginner friendly. 21.2 cm. Speed 7, Glide 5, Turn 0, Fade 1.
The TL+ differs from the TL in that it is made from the Plus Mold. The angle of the rim under the disc was changed in that it angles outwards slightly more than the regular rim which is more of a 90° angle to the bottom of the disc. This slight angling of the rim provides a smoother release. Everything else is the same. With its easy-release rim, the TL+ comes out clean. The Plus rim and the TL's neutral flight make this disc easy to throw for straight drives. It could be the ultimate smooth fairway driver.
The TeeBird3 represents the evolution of the TeeBird. The TeeBird3 is faster (Speed 8) with less glide, and has the same trusted turn and fade flight ratings as the original TeeBird. Many people have described a lot of discs as a "faster TeeBird", but this is the real deal. The flatter flight plate promotes speed while reducing glide, effectively producing consistent, accurate flights. This is a point and shoot, target specific fairway driver. Speed 8, Glide 4, Turn 0, Fade 2.
