To those that have thrown multiple plastic types of the Tern; which is the most stable? Which is the most understable?

first off... all champions are in the Jolly Launcher plastic.

Champion is most stable, followed by star, then the proto metalflake Christmas discs. Those were flippy.

Isn't Innova going to be making all their champion stuff in the JL plastic now, or will it only be certain molds?

The champ is more stable, but certainly not overstable. And the star was pretty neutral with a more pronounced turn. Tons of distance with the star (worlds stamp) But I could see big arms turning that thing hard without a hyzer release.

What is meant by Jolly Rancher plastic? Is it just the colourings?

It's "Jolly Launcher". My understanding is that it is just more vibrant, and more translucent than the older Champion. I'm sure there are differences in feel and flight, but I don't know enough to comment on that.

My apologies, I simply scanned and read what I expected to be there.

Thanks for the information though, Hammer.

Unrelated:

People have been talking about hearing the phrase "Tern it UP!" on the course.

makes me wonder what region of the country, because there's two ways to interpret the pun.

One is "turn it up," as in the volume. In our neck of the woods, it could also be "tearing it up," as in the course, depending on the intensity of the accent.
