I've been throwing the Champion Terns for a few months now and the 3 that I have thrown were all pretty domey. I decided to pick up a Star Tern and there generally 2 types. One was pretty domey like the champs that I currently throw and the others were fairly flat. I decided to pick the domey one, but I was wondering if anyone know how the flat ones fly compared to the domey ones or vice versa?

I just received a 175 Jolly Launcher Tern that I am loving. I fought giving it a chance, but I'm glad I did. It fits perfectly between my new Star Destroyer and seasoned Star Vulcan. This might be my longest disc yet. That extra bit of glide translates into a lot more distance. I'd say an extra 50ft for me at least. This is my first disc in Innova's new Champion plastic . It feels much more floppy than my other champions. Hopefully the old champion durability is carried over.

I'm proud to say I am the reason that Mr. Butlerton got a Tern. Well, half the reason. The other half was his excellent playing ability that allowed him top choice of the open box for our league.

ranger: my wife got a Starlite Tern and she likes it. However, she's getting the same flights out of hers that I do out of mine...she tops off around 225 distance and I'm around 325-360. So I would reckon that means the Starlites are even more understable than their regular Star counterparts. (she has clean form, so that's not the issue)

I posted a short book on post 870 in this thread about my experience with the Champ and Starlites if you're interested.

As a result of this thread, http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...ghlight=tuning , I may also have to try to tune my 151g Starlite to see if I can get some more high speed turn out of it.

Dude, awesome review. That's some solid info.

I throw fairways the same distance as you do, and am currently searching for a max D driver to call my own. I had tons of success with my first unLace, but after chucking it over a fence I replaced it with a dud (understable to the point of unthrowable). Rather than playing the game of trying to search for the perfect replacement, I'm doing some research and trying to try out a few different molds. The Tern has definitely been on my radar, and from the sound of it, a Starlite Tern would be a good place to start!

I just dug out my star tern and tossed it a couple of days.
Still a little too much disc for this noodle arm (almost no turn, and no extra distance).
I will keep on with my saints for now, and keep working on getting > 325'-350'
