Have you thrown Swords too? I think you'd like them also, they are basically interchangeable with less stable Trespasses and feel a little deeper in hand to me.

When I built an all 11ish DD bag for no real reason other than boredom, I found Trespass/Wraith(beat Star)/Sword to be a really good combo. Added a Mamba for severe L to R since I do not forehand. I was out of Renegades.

Swords are kind of a fun disc. Domey with a ton of glide. Definitely on the flippy side. They'll go a long, long way if you can keep them on line.

Basically like a slower Shryke.

I have black Star with the red and silver and blue foil stamp. It is not for me.

No, haven't tried a Sword. I'm sure it's a good disc, but if the Trespass is more shallow, I'll stick with it.

I always know where my Flick is going, too. At about 140' BH, 160' FH, it's going to fade hard to the ground.

Noodlearm, here, has Shrykes (one Star and one Champ) in the bag, and leaves the Flick at home in the trade pile.

I had a long post typed out but my connection timed out before I could post.

I'll try a shorter version this time.

I'm a Trilogy thrower (usually domey Gold Line Ballista or domey Lucid Trespass in this high speed slightly understable distance slot).

I can get a Ballista or Trespass out to the 400-425 foot range on a good clean throw.

I've recently tested a Z and ESP Nuke. I can't see them sticking. The ESP seems to have no glide. The Z is stable enough that I am not hyzerflipping it (I'm at altitude).

I have no problem with the Ballista and Trespass but if there's a disc option that can have a better hand feel and get me more distance then I should consider it.

I'd like to be able to hit hard on a slight flex or hyzerflip (depending on wind and shot selection).

Recommendations for what Shryke (or should I consider the Tern) I should look at?
Star or Champ? (I don't really want to go GStar)

I've looked at the Mummy Innfuse Halloween Shryke...has anyone thrown one of these yet?

First, I would look at the Pharaoh before Shryke. If you can find a stack of Shrykes, find the one with the highest PLH.

I personally prefer Terns, but my dislike of Champion in drivers is what led me to try multiple Shrykes and Pharaohs. If you try Terns, at your speed, go Champ. If that end up being stable, then go to Star. I really don't care for G* Terns, and Pros are terrible.

I throw a star Tern for my flippy, fast slot. For slightly flippy a Shrine in star will be good. Search them though because you can get some wonky stuff going on

thanks
interesting that you mention the Pharaoh as I emailed Infinite to ask them about that disc.

May I ask why you gave that recommendation?
Less variance than Shrykes?
Possibly right between the Shryke and the Tern?
