The Innova Thunderbird is an overstable distance driver. It comes from strong bloodlines - the stability of a TeeBird, the speed of a Valkyrie and described as a seasoned Firebird with less fade. The Thunderbird is predictable in wind and is a great long range placement driver. Pros will appreciate the shot shaping ability of this disc golf driver while less experienced players will find a consistent, predictable flight.
It is a great choice for accurate drives, controlled hyzers and placement shots.

About GStar plastic in general - it has more flexibility and more grip than regular Star. It's more flexible in cold weather yet not floppy in hot weather. It retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastic. It's just as durable as Star and maybe slightly more since added flexibility prevents damage during hard hits. All said and done, it offers high performance, longevity, superior grip, flexibility and an amazing pearlescent sheen.

"Don't be surprised when the Champion Thunderbird becomes your favorite go-to driver." - Paul McBeth
"When I need great control without sacrificing much distance" - James Conrad
"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
