What's in a name?

It's named after the sea going bird.

Guess what a bird has to do out at sea? Go a long way on little energy and glide.
Guess what kind of disc a company might sell a ton of: goes a long way without much power and has a lot of glide.

With numbers like 12, 6, -2, 2, I'm thinking that's exactly what this disc is supposed to do, assuming it true to the numbers.

Plus it's bound to be at least somewhat flippy, so that could be why they chose Tern, as opposed to Seagull, Albatross, or Pelican.... sounds pretty good compared to those!

Today was SUPER Windy, so in calmer situations my opinion may change.
I thought the Tern was the same mold as the Wahoo.

I might be the only person on the web that thinks this... but I hope that this is correct!

Any new info on when this thing will be available in standard runs? I don't need a special stamp and am very interested in a Champion Tern when it's available. Haven't even gotten to throw my Christmas Frenzy yet and I'm already wanting another disc.

Innova factory Store has Pre-Production Metal Flake Champion Tern Factory Second. Here is what the said about the turn. "We have a small supply of Pre-Production Champion Terns! These Pre-Production discs will have different flight ratings from the Champion Production run. These Terns have extra turn | 12 |6 | -4 | 1 |."

Played around with someone very high up at Innova , without knowing who i was playing with . He was throwing both versions of the tern , the tern 2 , and the tern 4. As an older gent he could not turn over the tern 2 , but could throw some AMAZING shots with the tern 4 , he was throwing huge shots (at 60+ years old). I am interested in the tern 2 as it was described as a long slightly turning disc, i am definitely interested.
