The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

i think i'm the only person in the chuck that uses this disc. i love it. 2 of my 3 aces are with eagles. i love the flight, the feel and the way it sticks. i use mine for low straight long drives. i call them my "darts". i carry 3 (2 champion, 1 star) in my bag at all time and i have a lot of backups ready to go. i have start'd to collect older ones as well. 9x kc pro, 10x time kc pro, 11x champion, champion edition (how do i tell what run it is?) . i need to pick up a few 12x, do they even make those.
damn, i'm a n00b when it comes to knowing about disc history.

I started with the DX version after watching a beginner freind launch his for a long time. About 6 months ago, I picked up a Star Eagle and have been loving it. The gentle curve of the eagle is a super precise driver. I know it is not a long range bomber, but the upstate SC (Greenville) has more precision shots than open bombs. Have not tried the champion versus the star, how do the compare?
for me, the star is a bit more stable than the champion. i can get alittle flip out of the champion and i get more distance out of the star, better grip i think.
Dude, I got a 2nd or 3rd run stable Champ Eagle that is the same as the day I bought it...A go to disc for a variety of shots.

All I can do is guess on that...like I said 2nd or 3rd. I come to that range based on when I bought it. I wanna say around the late summer/fall of 2000. I picked it up after losing a first run Champ Firebird on one of the first Fly-18 disc golf/ball golf endeavors in Titusville FL. I have both the replacement FB and that Eagle in my bag.
Glad to see another post of a stable eagle, was beginning to think I was throwing it wrong. I have a champion eagle that I picked up a couple years ago, I love it but it's pretty stable.
I have a Star Eagle-X that is slightly overstable as well. Has a lot more fade and breaks sooner than my DX or Champ T-Birds. Takes a lot more snap to hyzer flip than my 'birds as well. Very nice disc, and if thrown low will usually give me a nice skip too....
How can you tell the difference between an eagle and an eagle-x?
i think the star is the eagle x. on all my star eagles it has written on the bottom "sex"
i like to think of it as my sexy plastic. on the bottom of the champion has "ce"

and as far as a nice skip, to me a nice skip with an eagle is little skip, around 3-5 feet. thats what i meant when i said i love the way it sticks to the green
You know Feldberg carries like 10 or more Eagles at all times, it's his everything disc. I damn near aced Winthrop #17 with one forehand, hit hay bales and I had just bought it (my first one ever) right before the round.
Still throwing my CE First Run. Love it!! Can always count on it!!
eagles, t birds and rocs are my favorite discs. all fly very similar with the roc being the most stable, and the eagle being the most overstable of the three. Without these discs my game is near useless.
