Star Tern Flight Ratings

Why does the Innova chart rate the Star Tern as a -3 HSS when all the discs I see in stores are rated as a -4 HSS?

I found this while looking in to it...

Quote:
Innova states that the flight rating of this disc in Star and Champion plastic slightly differ. The flight rating for Champion Plastic is 12/6/-2/2, for GStar is 12/6/-3/2, and for Star 12/6/-4/2.

I know that the star tern that I just picked up is not a -4. It is more stable than the gstars that I have.

at least they are trying to say their discs aren't consistent between plastics.. as far as the numbers being accurate, that speaks for itself i think.

The chart changed from 2013 to 2014. I assume the mold stayed the same and they adjusted the flight numbers on the chart?

Interesting. I hope the new chart is right, because if it flies like my Vulcan (tough to keep from turning and burning) which is also rated as a -4 HSS, I'm really not interested.

I bag a champ and a star, and I'd say that the star is definitely at least 2x as US as the champ.
