Generally probably yes, but it depends on the strength of the wind too. You can throw a lot of discs into a headwind, just keep in mind that they are going to act like you threw them harder. Discs turn more when you throw them harder...often I'll just put a little more hyzer on the disc I'd normally throw on that shot. But when the wind is really going hard, you'll probably need an overstable disc (that term being relative to how hard you throw in the first place). I'm throwing my fresh rocs into headwinds more where I used to be afraid to throw a midrange in the wind. I've been surprised with good results. I just have to throw a little harder than usual to fight the wind and maybe add a touch more hyzer.

so, could it be safe to say that real overstable discs are best fer headwinds?

It is very straight and hyzers INTO a head wind. This is the best use of this and other very overstable drivers. You can throw hard and keep the line.

The wind alters a discs flight but a Firebird is very overstable so it holds its flight line and is still predictable in heavy wind

Eric, I use my teerex x...which now they tell me is the same as all the new teerexs coming out. Apparently the teerex mold broke at some point and now it's nearly identical to the teerex x mold. I'll have to try a star teerex and see if it's true. Anyway, I use my rex for the same type of shots I use the fb for, it's just my long overstable hyzer disc. I usually throw that rex upwind too, it has more carry than the fb upwind. Actually I should give that fb a try for those I suppose...

It's very fast with very little glide, so the wind doesn't really affect it.

MAN, Wade put it far better than I did in 3 words.
