I know A LOT of sub-900 players.
Ivar played a lot of tournaments, but only one PDGA tourney and I am WELL below 900. Check my PDGA number if you don't believe me...I shan't embarrass myself by posting it here. I had a really bad tournament, but still...

I play four or more rounds a week and have been playing for over 20 years. I know a lot about the game. It irks me when players with natural talent get all high and mighty. The REAL question is: how many of those players who are 900-plus rated players have fun every time they play? I guarentee the "chuckers" sure do.

Apologies for the drift. I took the Terns out for a round today and was making so
e really good shots. I was wavering between it and the d4, but the Tern has won. I have a tendency to smack trees, and today was no exception. Some scuffage, but no chunks. So the new plastic holds up well.

And the glide man...the GLIDE! This has to be Innova's glidiest disc ever!

Chucker here and yes we do. But, in all seriousness....The plastic feels great, and you're right. This disc has glide for miles, and flies on a pretty tight line. I like it a lot.

What weight are you throwing Andy? I've been cyber-stalking you since we have similar D and are both high.

1 - I'm a consistent 425' on a Teebird thrower.

2 - Balls out on a lower-ish line, the Tern flips and eventually crashes, but doesn't turn and burn as easy as I thought it would. From my experiences with them, it's similar to an ESP Nuke in understability. e.g. it can definitely burn if you want it to, but if you hit the sweet spot, which is annoying, it can really find some close-to-acceptable lines.

2.1 - High max-d hyzer line, and it flips and glides for days. Takes up quite a lot real estate to go from L-R; I would approximate 70'-ish.

3 - I don't have to try hard to get 400'. This is kind of nice. (Still more L-R than I would like though.)

4 - Will not take a place in my bag. (Destroyers and Augusta Wraiths for me.)

5 - Most importantly. The plastic quality is great compared to some of the waxy "champion" Innova has been boosting. The disc I have is "blurple" 168g, nearly clear. Rather grippy, even in cold. Not quite as grippy as the Prodigy stuff coming out right now. Not quite as hard as 11x plastic. Durometer (shore D) readings are ~70 on the rim. I will be more excited if Innova can retain this level of quality.

We both win!! I was always good with Dave, Tim and all the Innova guys when I played competitive golf. They always took care of what I needed so I continue to back their product. Not always consistent but back then they were the only company that made stuff that could handle how hard and far I threw. I would like to try some Lat 64 stuff out, looks really good. My friend is going to try and break the record with the Tern, his words were, "there is no other disc like it".
