The FD2 is a reliable speed 7 workhorse fairway driver for all skill levels. It’s not too glidey to avoid you from sailing off-target and it has a low-speed fade you can depend on. Packed with a nice amount of high speed stability, this disc gives you nice straight lines when thrown flat and hard. The more power you put behind this disc, the straighter lines you will see it perform. When thrown more gently, the fade will kick in earlier in flight making cutting corners easier.
Josh's Field Work -- The FD2 is exactly what it claims to be. A reliably stable fairway driver. When thrown at 80% speed, this disc won't flip and finishes reliably and strong in the hyzer. It will even reliably fight into mild headwinds. Discmania describes it as 'not too glidey' and I agree. When compared to other stable, slow fairway drivers like the Teebird or Rival, the overstable component of the FD2 definitely kicks in just a hair quicker than the Teebird or Rival and gives the FD2 a little more 'get to ground' quality without getting into the overstable dump truck neighborhood of the XXX, Firebird or Felon. On a firm throw, the FD2 comes up reliably about 10-20 feet short of the Teebird. If you like the feel of the TeeBird but crave just a little more overstability. Try an FD2 (note - most of my field work is done around 5280 feet of altitude. Expect less stability at lower altitudes)
