The Birdie is a slow, straight flyer with Innova's 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 Innova's 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.
