I dunno. I've had my Terns for awhile and they've taken plenty of hard impacts, and I still don't get a lot of turn out of them. Try throwing a big, high turnover shot with it...you'll be suprised at how pretty the flight is

they definitely prefer a higher flight release. Not really designed for low line drives, at least not the way I throw them.

You can line drive them, but you really have to put some stank on them and anticipate the skip. I've thrown a couple 300-320 foot buzzsaws with it that skip another 30-50 feet, but you're right, there is definetly much better discs for that.

How's this plastic holding up for everyone? My Tern's rim is taking a beating, especially for how few times I've throw it.

I haven't had any problems after thwacking a couple of trees now.

We actually won a contest for once. My family now has 10 Terns on their way to us in the mail. I've been waiting to try one out just in case, and I'm glad I did. I'm curious if they'll be too much like my go to beat up Star Wraiths, or if they'll help compliment them.

I came in here to post that I finally got some wide open field action with them yesterday, and they flew very much like my star/pre-number-pro wraiths. They actually do go a little further, and if you have some hyzer on them, mine didn't flip over. Mine is still really new though (probably only been thrown 15-20 times now), and it is 170g, which was the heaviest I could find in the local PIAS. I'd be interested to see what a max weight could do, and what one of the lighter, 164-165ish ones does. all in all, I like it! great backup (or replacement!) for the wraith, and a straight long strong end-fade disc if I need it in the woods.

^^^I have one scaled at 166g. Was able to rip it out to @ 350' w/ a little anny.
Very impressed so far, and am interested how it holds up after some tree whacks.

I finally got a chance to throw mine last night. The wind was kind of crazy, but that thing really bombs. I managed to throw a 400' shot with it (with a tailwind of course), and a few 350' drives which were pretty as well.
