How does star work better for you? Distance? Stability?
Star seems to be a tiny bit more predictable than G*. I also think Star is a little longer. I like the plastic better, so maybe it's an overall comfort thing for me.

The Tern is one of those discs (along with the Boss) that has different flight numbers for the Champion discs vs. the other plastics. The Champ Tern's turn and fade is -2,2; while the Star is -3,2 (and older discs may say -4,2).

My Star Terns have always been less overstable than my two Champ Terns, and usually give me better distance (and that's with one of my Champ Terns being 157g).

E* TBs are magical, E*DS was the Tern or Shryke before they existed, E*ThBs would be amazing, as would E* Shrykes. Too bad "everyone" wants these ugly Swirly Star. Just give me color glow Star and bring back E*. I wish I had an E*Tern, something tells me I would've loved one.

By far my favorite Tern. Eco Star is also my favorite TeeBird. And Destroyer.

C'mon Innova!

Totally agree, and I'll add the EStar Archon to the list of molds that are great in EStar. Nowadays I'm using Pro plastic, which isn't a totally bad substitute. But yes, bring EStar back...

I agree, the Pro they make now is pretty good plastic, like a lesser Star, but not that bad.

Glow Tern for me seemed a little beefier and less glidey than star or regular champion. Good disc for bigger arms. I was still able to get it over 400' easily. Just didn't have the huge flex glide that most other Terns do.

Thanks!
I have a 167 star on the way, Im curious to see how it flies for me. Im hoping it will flip up for me a little easier without getting too touchy.

My experience exactly. It seems to be a good disc to help eliminate nose up throws as well. They are very apparent when they happen.
