So this is Innova's answer to the Lat 64 Diamond then?

Fast, good glide, but flippy beyond all reckoning and unlike Blizzard, below 140 does not float.

I saw these at my local shop today - the 137 felt really light and good in the hand. I like the texture and feel of Star Lite over Blizzard.

I'll get one someday....

Well, that day was today.

Picked up a 150 Star Lite Valk and played 9 holes today. I definitely flies like a Valk for me, good distance and nice healthy fade at the end. I was hitting some good distance with medium effort.

It seemed less flippy than a 148 Air Saint I've been using a lot lately, although the latter has had its share of tree shots.

Pretty similar discs otherwise. The Star-Lite plastic felt nice and grippy.

Some of the Star-Lite discs I was looking at had lots of bubbles in the rim. In mine the bubbles aren't evident.

I found it very difficult to get a 150 Star Valkyrie after I lost mine.
Starlite filled the bill for me.

Got out and threw this again this morning. What a disc - it has the best glide of any Innova disc I've thrown. It handled the breeze, and I was getting some good distance with poor footing and winter clothes on.

Very pleasantly surprised, as I didn't really remember too much about it.

I've bagged one of these at 149g for almost a year now. For downwind or no wind drives with an open fairway it is my go-to. Fastest disc in my bag is a 9 so this and a heavier star valk are my distance drivers.

Flies similar to a DX Valk for me, with maybe a touch more HSS than DX. I normally throw a star teebird around 290 to 310 and I get the Valk out to 350 downwind normally, with maybe 375 once.

I could see getting this out there in good conditions. I just laughed a few times when I threw it today, the flight was so awesome.

Or you could grab a regular champ in the upper 150s. I have two that are every bit as reliable as their max weight counterparts. They are so great my wife stole one from me.
