Different numbers on TERNs?
 
I went swimming in the local water trap and happend to pull out 2 StarLite Terns. I was looking through my haul (23 discs) seeing if there was anything I might wanna try to throw and noticed that both of them had different numbers one is 12/6/-4/2 and the other is 12/6/-3/2 did they change the mold at some point or did they just revamp the numbers?

Same mold, revamped numbers. Initially, the Star Terns were coming out very flippy - not sure if they corrected something, but the Tern is still as far as a know really easy to buy a spectrum of off the shelf in premium plastic - grab a champ for the -2/2, then your preference of G*, Star, EchoStar, pro... And if you want, a CFR or tour series Tern in something like glow champ or swirly star for the top rung.

I have a 170 champ Tern for bombs it's -3/2 and it flies just like -3/2

Cool I was just curious. Being a 12 speed disc I would usually say it was too fast for me (my 168g M5 has a stable flight) but at around 150g, -4 stability, and FREE why not go toss one?

Terns are now all labeled -3 except Champ which remains labeled -2.

Interestingly, the 1 starlite Tern I've thrown was among the beefier Terns I've seen. At 158g it was holding steady on full rips. The wimpiest (flippiest) Terns I've thrown were all stars.

With some of those flippy discs you get variation in stability from plastic to plastic. Enough to put different flight numbers on the discs.

This is all true.


Some friends of mine have ended up with really flippy G*s, but none of mine have been.

old stars were -4 and were SUPER FLIPPY and then newer are -3 but still flippy - special swirly star are more like -2 , Champion is like -2 and a Glow Champ is like -1.3

the Turn on a Tern can Vary by disc ;) but yeah different severity of turn depending on run, plastic, etc

Which makes the Tern a great mold to build a driver fleet. The Echos may be the glidiest drivers ever made.

They revamped the numbers on the non-Champion plastic Terns to -3,2 from -4,2 after getting feedback from users. Champion Terns are -2,2.
