    Is this similar to what they did with the Eagle a few years ago? I don't remember which came first but there was the L mold and the E mold and it changed the rim. They do fly different.

      No. The Eagle L, E, and X molds are all products of different lips. Just as the Teebird and Teebird L are different. Notched lip versus straight lip. The new Teebird+ has a slightly angled inside rim that is supposed to provide a "beefier" feel in the hand, yet produce similar flight characteristics.

        I believe you are talking about a 'Normal' force... it is considered when calculating frictional forces between two static objects. It varies directly with the cosine of the angle in question.

          Is this just the Teebird +, or is this "new" rim angle going to continue through the rest of the Teebird runs? Kinda nervous because I use a Teebird quite a bit.
