Champ Shryke doesn't turn easier than my bio Tresspass but lighter Stars do. I can pump the Tresspass on a roped lower line than the Shryke which takes some more height to work for me. If I had to choose between the two I'd go Star Shryke for sure

I don't have any Shrykes yet. My local stores did not have any. I believe my wife may have ordered me 2 for my birthday.

I started in this thread mentioning that I throw Trespasses and Ballistas and that I was looking for something easier to flip up than the Trespass but that could give me Ballista distance with a bit better control.

I picked up 2 Champ Terns from a local store. 173 and 170. The 170 is less HSS stable than the 173.

I will say from the outset that the Tern seems to be giving me some of the longest throws I've had (new disc joy perhaps). If the Shryke can exceed the Tern then I think I will be very happy.

The Tern does flip up for me easier than the Trespass. It is definitely longer. This is good. However, it (the Tern) doesn't fight back as well as the Trespass. So the "pros" of the Tern are that it gives me easier distance and in the way that I want to throw. The "cons" would be that it is not as trusty in wind so I need to be careful with the release.

So far I would say the Tern has a fair chance of kicking Trespasses and/or Ballistas out of my bag as being a disc that meets the parameters I was searching for.

I'm hoping the Shryke can give me a similar flight but perhaps a bit longer and with a touch more fight back. My assumption is that my wife ordered me Star (I'd given her links to follow for ordering) but I may have to try a Champ.

Someone a few posts back mentioned the Captain. I tried one that belongs to a friend. Just one throw but thrown back to back with the 170 Tern (the Captain was a slightly seasoned 171 First Run) and the Captain appeared to have quite a bit less HSS.
I think you'll end up liking the Shryke a lot. I find them to be longer than the Tern, and just a tick more stable. The Shryke is less likely to go bombing right and not come back. I don't bag the Ballista or Trespass, but I really like both molds. Just perfect, effortless distance without being too flippy.

I had a Tern in the bag for a while, but when the Shryke came out I switched it up. The Shryke (for me) was simply a better disc. It didn't flip over as often and provided better speed, distance, and glide.

I would get a star and champion Shryke in the high 160s or low 170s and see what you think. Its my go-to disc for open distance bombs.

Take all this, and reverse it.

Side note: I've used Shrykes, Terns, and Trespasses. All are good. I'm currently bagging the Trespass.

Wait for the Shrykes, they are likely what you want.

The Captain I agree is less HSS, it is a long flier but is not meant for wind and the fade is late.

I find the Tern and Trespass neck and neck for myself. Very similar distance, speed, and power requirements. They have slightly different characteristics but they are very comparable for me/take the same slot in my bag.

The Shryke will have more stability both HSS and LSS, so give that a try. If you're looking at DD then the Sheriff is a little faster and a little more stable than some Trespasses, but less neutral for the overall flight...and the Captain is less stable than Sheriff. I would just try the Shrykes that are on the way and see how you get along with them.

When I compare Tern vs. Shryke, I'm doing so having thrown probably 10 of each mold. I've also thrown 5 Ballistas and at least 6 Trespasses. Its kinda hard to base your thoughts on a certain disc having only thrown 1 of them.

I think to really see the difference between a Tern and a Shryke you have to throw them 400' or more. At 350' power the discs will behave very similarly.

Another often overlooked (and dissed) mold is the DDX. I've been playing around with them lately and am loving the results. They don't quite float like a Tern, but they also aren't as prone to flipping. I've been throwing a DDX every bit as far as a Tern, but on a more direct (less S curve) line. The DDX will give the Shryke a run for its money on sheer distance as well.

The Trespass is probably DD's best driver in terms of consistency. I haven't run across any bad ones.

The Ballista is surprisingly good (consistency) considering its a super fast, wide rimmed driver. The 5 Ballistas I've thrown have all been great. Reliable high speed turn followed by a nice fade. Trespass and Ballista are my two favorite trilogy drivers. I'll go ahead and say that the Ballista is trilogy's longest bomber. It, the Sheriff, and the Captain are all pretty close.

I agree with the DDx comments. However, the one difference I will point out is rim depth. The DDx (and the katana, too) has MUCH more shallow of an inside rim. This is a major drawback for me. I have several DDx and love them--they go FAR. However, I feel I can grip my shrykes and destroyers much more securely, which leads (for me) to more confidence in my throws. Just a thought.

I carry a Shryke, Pharaoh and multiple Terns every round. I used to throw Trespasses, but to me they are more like a Wraith. I sometimes carry an all 11 speed driver lineup, and two of those go with me.

Yeah, the rim depth on some of the newer drivers is very shallow. If you don't have a decent grip the disc will slip often.

In fact, I'd say over half of the speed 13-14 drivers manufactured today have shallow rims. Shallow rim = extra speed. You don't see very many wide, yet deep rimmed drivers even made anymore.

I think the Shryke rim is actually a hair shallower than a Destroyer, but deeper than a DDX or Tern.

The Tern rim only gives me issues in Champion which is why I have been trying so hard to replace them. My next order will be a mixture of weights and plastics in Pharaoh in an attempt to permanently purge champion from my driver lineup.
