The Birdie is our best "go for it" disc and an excellent approach disc. It is a slow, straight flyer with a sure Thumtrac™ grip that makes it easy to go for it without worry. The Birdie is a slow, straight flyer with our Thumtrac™ grip for a sure release. It has great chain catching ability. Great for approach shots, as it flies straight and slow, start to finish. It is one of our best “go for it” discs as it doesn’t go far past the basket on misses, and stays put when it hits the ground. A good disc for those players making the conversion from flat edged disc sports: Catch, Ultimate, Freestyle, etc.
