The Innova Star Firebird is an overstable distance driver. 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.

About Star plastic in general - it has the durability of Champion plastic with the superior all-weather grip of Pro plastic. Star discs have the same flight rating characteristics of Champion discs, although some Star Lite discs may be slightly more high-speed stable. Star retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastics.

What others have said:
"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
"Most predictable disc in my bag. Best disc in the wind. Great for sidearm shots. I carry 3. One brand new for headwinds, low skip shots, and sidearms. One semi beat for spike hyzers and 300-350 ft hyzers. I know it won't flip. 5 year old beat champion firebird for straight shots with a slight hyzer finish."- Craig Cutler
"This is my favorite driver! I have thrown this disc over 600ft. It is my favorite and most predictable rolling disc. My best disc for over-hand thumbers. The best disc for any headwind." - Brian Schweberger
