I will wait for star. I do not like Ch. for distance drivers.

The new plastic coming out is amazing. So grippy. Here is the proto Tern I just got

The new plastic is really nice. It seems like Innova is trying to step it up a little bit, which they need to do because I feel that Opto and Goldline are superior to Champ and Star. I think the Tern is the best mold they've released the past couple of years. Its got an insane amount of glide and its easy to throw far.

picked up a 175 at PIAS

I haven't been playing a lot the last few months, but took it out to a local course a couple days ago that has a wide open fairway on the first hole. I immediately compared it to a beaten Destroyer. My form was still a bit rusty, so the headwind shots weren't very consistent, but when I threw it fairly well it flipper over nice, glided, and faded back nicely. I don't use a range finder or anything, but it seemed a good 30-40ft longer than my destroyer that I would normally throw on that hole.

I think this will be a favorite for me on open holes until I learn it a bit more. On a few of the shots it was very straight like a Teebird, so the "S" curve a lot of folks mention may only apply to those not getting enough power to throw it straight. I have been carrying a heavy Valk in my bag for years and has similar flight capabilities to it as well.

oh, I typically throw 350-375, but can throw maybe 400 on wide open holes with a good rip.

If I really just rip on my Terns, it goes very straight. But I have difficulty ranging it when I do that...and I have other discs for that shot. I like the Tern for those 80% s-curve shots

After using it for a few weeks the Tern still out drives anything else in my bag.
I've parked holes that I've never parked before.
However, it also is a bit nose/wind sensitive (for me at least) and I also have throws that turn and burn at less than 100'.
I've found that for me, it responds the best with less power.
I really like it, but still don't use it in tourney rounds because I don't completely trust it just yet.



Oh yeah, I have a 175 and a 170.

I won a Tern in a raffle and have been throwing it a bit for the past week. I was expecting an understable disc, however unless I throw this into a noticeable headwind with a 100% effort, I'm not getting much/any turn. Pretty straight, lots of glide, lots of fade, really fast. Pretty comparable to a new champion katana, maybe just a little more glide. We'll see what happens when it starts to beat in a little. As to the plastic - it looks good and seems to be a little more pliable/flexible than the recent champ plastic. Feels pretty good in the hand.
