Just added a 163 Champ to my heavier Champ and World's Star. The newer one is just as I had hoped, and between the others in stability. The 163 flips up from hyzer, makes a move to the right, then slowly comes back. Best I've felt about my driver lineup n a while. Now, what to do with all the Renegades?

Also being the star version, I felt it should have a little to high speed turn, if I am throwing it correctly.
It only dipped one or two times, otherwise it just flew straight with low speed fade at the end.
It might just need a little seasoning to fly the way I think it should.
On a side note, I can throw my teebirds and my Buzzz almost this same distance.
So i will stick with the slower stuff for now.
I have been dipping into my higher speed pile of discs a little.
I have decided to try and make Terns my next disc to work on.
so I just traded my protostar Mamba for another new star tern.
so now I have 2 star 166/167 Terns and a CH 170ish Tern .
so now I am just going to work on beating it up a little when the opportunity arises.
We will give it a chance to see if I can make it work.
I figure by the time my throwing is up to a 12 speed the disc might be ready.

I threw my 171 champ tern 470.. But I can't throw that far consistently. It's gonna need some room to work at that distance that's for sure lol

Yes, but you have to give it some height and hyzer.

I have 3 Star Terns that are only useful with no wind but a 167 Champ Tern that holds up pretty well and is surprisingly stable compared to the Star plastic. Got my second ace ever on Jan 1st, hole#2, Truckee, Ca with the Champ Tern. Both of my career aces in 17 months of playing have been with Terns!

I wish I could get one out past 400' but just don't have the power and form yet.
