I haven't thrown every disc in that stability range, but I will say I've thrown my inertia against a champ tern and they were right beside each other almost every time. A mid to high 160 gram beast crushes, a buddy of mine had a star beast that just wouldn't stop flying. A big thing about that general idea is that people who want more distance often times (not saying this is anyone on here, in fact usually everyone on here doesn't do this) wants a higher speed driver... companies don't make a lot of lower speed discs that crush because they wouldn't sell as well as a high speed disc that's marketed towards being the longest disc in any given bag, I.e. Tern. Also, ever thrown a Hatchet?

RHBH: beat-in gold line bolt ~300'
RHFH: new(ish) lucid renegade ~280'

Longest drive of my career: ~600' downhill on the top of the world hole at Whistlers Bend DGC with a beat-in nuke.

I think the one I have is 168. It's fast and has decent glide, but it doesn't like to hold a line. It either flips over or hyzers out early. It won't stay flat and cruise for big distance. It isn't a useless driver, but it's definitely not anything I'd take to a distance competition.

What use do you find in this?
IMO any driver that hyzers out early AND turns over AND flies an S line, inconsistently, has no use I can think of. Why would you step up to the teepad holding a disc that you dont know what it'll do that time as opposed to last?

I think a Beast CAN be thrown as far as a Tern, but the Tern will take less effort to reach the same distance. It's faster and glides better. I've actually had some very long tosses with Beasts through the years. It's the longest 10 speed driver out there.

The Tern is unique in that it has the flight characteristics of a slower disc even though its a 12 speed.

I won't call it an idiotproof driver, but its pretty close. The Tern can add noticeable distance to most peoples' drives.

None at all. Haven't thrown the disc in years for this reason. I threw the Freedom some about 3 years ago. It was an alluring disc, and looked like it could be the next best thing. I simply wasn't impressed. All the other drivers I was comparing it to were going as far or further.

I'm throwing about 300-325 on a good day with my Valkyrie, same range as you. That means our internet distance is in the 420-445 range - we're crushing it!

That's all? Are you throwing it upside down?

I used to throw Beasts. Yes, they are long, and you can find variable stabilities in the different plastics. Still, I could never throw them as far as Terns or as far as I am now throwing Shrykes and my Sheriff. Speaking of, the Sheriff is the longest disc I've ever thrown into a wind.
