Not really too similar...my d4 is a little more stable for me. Very little turn...plus that "easy release" tech is just a little TOO easy for me...lot of early release on the d4. I prefer the Tern. I did review both on InfiniteDiscs. Sorry to make you jump to a vendor site bit I'm typing on my Kindle right now haha.

Of you want a better comparison just PM me and ill hit you back tomorrow

Wahoo: 21.0 / 2.0 / 1.2 / 16.1 / 2.4 / 5.7 / 33.25 / 10.21
I know that I can find the information elsewhere... but would you please identify what each of the numbers above mean? I'm pretty confident that the first is the diameter and the 2nd is width of the "rim." The others, I just don't know. Thanks.

This thread has taken a Tern for the worse.

If I could throw a Teebird 425' I wouldn't be in the market for a Tern.

Either Andy doesn't care about me and Danny, or he has a real life.

That is all.

I buy everything and anything, good or bad. Maybe a friend will wanna throw it. It's an interesting disc, and not bag worthy for me. There are plenty of discs that go L-R (RHBH) with larger sweet spots than this one for me.

Plastic is definitely higher quality than the norm with Innova. If you have the means, I would say buy it for that reason alone. I'm really surprised to see it side by side with some other recent Innova purchases.

OK. So DGCenter came through for me as always. Ordered on a Saturday and they were in the mail today, a Friday. Not too bad.

I got pretty close to the orange that I wanted, although the disc is more "clear" than I anticipated.
Here's the orange one I got, at 163g.

And I listened to you Matt, got a pink one, too... at 162g!


And check out the inner and outer edges of the rim. You can really see how it's more clear. Very cool looking discs.


And the plastic does feel a little softer and more "grippy" than other Champion plastic that I've felt, just like others have mentioned. Now I just hope that their flight for me looks as good as the discs themselves!

thanks andy. yea thats sufficient for now as I intend to try out the D4 tomorrow, got me a little nervous with the release thing, haven't had early release issues since i started back in october and altho I don't have 425 ft of power I would def say the tern is my longest disc and all my releases with it have been beautiful maybe the shallower rim is something that benefits me. God I really want a proto star stamp in hot pink or maybe dayglo yellow, but what I'm seeing them go for at 30+ is a tough pill to swallow as I intend on throwing them. Might just grab a second production stamp so I have two to work into bag as I love it enough to duplicate this disc. way to go innova

Better update your signature! And that yellow font is impossible to read, btw.
