I have the same experience with Starlite Terns. 2x157 Starlite Tern were more stable than 2x163 Star Tern

"Me three" on this. My sample-of-one Starlite Tern was (and is) more overstable than even my Hannah Leatherman Swirly Star Terns. I even tried to lose that Starlite Tern, but found it the next day.

I did lose mine. Didn't even look for it. Still not sorry.

I'll also add in...I've only tried one Starlite Tern and it was definitely more stable than I expected. Just flipped up to flat and had a fade to it. In comparison my beat in champ Tern will turn over and barely come back if I throw it too hard.

I don't think I've ever thrown a normal weight Star Tern...

Thanks for the good advice. In my hands they fly almost identically to an upper 150's Bolt, but the x outs in I plastic at 148 are 10 grams easier on my arm

I understand the concept of easy distance, but you need a disc that has at least some resistance to flipping on slow drives.
I've seen some big drives thrown with a beat 150 Starlite Tern. They are fun to watch get past 400'.

I think it comes down to the run regardless of plastic. My SL RR is my "beefy" RR. I also bag a 164 Champ that was so understable it took a while to figure out. I also play a lot more in the woods than I do the wind.

Start with a Star Leopard, if that gets flippy, then go...
- 160-170g Star Valkyrie
- Star Beast or Z Undertaker
- Light Champion Tern

Have you considered an air plastic hatchet

I’m a big fan of the Discraft heat and most recently the Star Mamba! I love how much distance I can get with those discs with little effort.
