Excellent. I've been looking for a disc to fill that spot in my bag and am hoping that the Star Tern will do it.

My birthday's coming up at the end of the month and I think I know a couple things that are going on the short list right now!

I just counted my discs with my daughter this past weekend as I was sorting them, checking on my backups, etc. The count is at 108. My daughter says that I need 3 more for a cool number... 111. I think that I'll have to take her up on the suggestion.

Now for me the Star Tern seems to have more glide and lift. So you have to throw it a bit lower. Well with my form I have to throw it lower.

That's pretty awesome that she said the number needed to be 111. The things kids say

The KC Tern started pretty neutral stable for me but after many, many impacts the last two months it has really hit a sweet spot. Thrown flat it makes an awesome s-turn with decent fade. Hyzer flip and its a frozen rope for a good disrance before starting a turn. And it holds annys the whole way...no fade.

The Star Tern is flippy in a fantastic way. I cant throw it flat or with anny unless I want a juicy roller, but playing with hyzer angles has got me some amazing shota. And the Star Terns definetly have more glide than the Champ version.

So are these available anywhere yet? I was checking out DiscGolfCenter and there are none there yet. I even looked at the Innova site and didn't see them on their list of Terns available. Thanks!

One of the shops in Denver, Fly Green, posted pics of their shipment of them on their Facebook but I havent found any online retailers with them yet either. FLY GREEN has an eBay store if you dont feel like waiting...Id bet they are on there.

Thanks. I'll check it out. I've had such great success with DiscGolfCenter that I'll probably wait... but you never know!

Edit... they sure do have it. http://stores.ebay.com/Fly-Green-Dis...=p4634.c0.m322

Silly me didn't put Star + Lite together. So not only is it already the -4 HSS Star version of the disc, but it can also be super-light. Now I really have to think about what I want to do.

I have been thinking about replacing my Wraiths with something faster/less stable. It has filled my max distance BH slot for many years but I am just not getting enough real distance, just a lot of control. I am just skeptical of how the Tern can handle headwinds. I'm just going to have to buy one and test it out.

Keep a new Wraith in the bag for headwinds.

A new Tern will do okay in a headwind on hyzer, but IMO its better to have something more on the overstable side for windy days.

didn't bag the champ tern. Its just unstable. sometimes overstable sometimes understable. You never know what you get. its damn long disc with good glide but width of landing area is just way too wide.
