I'd buy one if it was named the Shirk. Or the Shrek. Or the Shorc, which is a cross between a Shark and Orc. Or the Shriek to compliment my Scream. Or the Shroom to work with my 420.

Oh what the hey, I'll buy one anyway.

First, I will say that I have absolutely no interest in this disc.

But, what do you think Innova the business should do? Rest on their laurels and just market what they have already made? That is a recipe for disaster from business standpoint. A company that does not release new products is destined to be left in the dust by its competitors. Look are car or watch companies (especially the luxury ones). There is very little real change in the new models that come out, but new "updated" models are released. Now from Innova's point of view, they have two options from which to choose. Either release updates of classic molds, like plus molds, vtech, 3 series, which have varying success. Or they can create new molds all together, success also varies here. A combination of the two is what they are doing. For the well established molds, they offer slight tweaks while still producing the classics. With less successful molds, they are often just creating new molds that end up replacing the less successful ones. If they have a spot in their lineup that is filled by a mold that does not sell well, why not create a new mold to fill the same spot. The very fact that it is new will almost certainly increase sales over the previous poor selling mold. And it just so happens that most of the poor selling molds tend to be on the understable end of the spectrum.

Sorry for such a lengthy response, but I just don't understand bitching about Innova "oversaturating" their lineup. No one is forcing you to buy the new molds, but at least you have the option if you want to do so.

Hopefully it's a Tern for those with big hands.

I think the market is oversaturated in general; not just Innova's line-up. Realistically, there are only so many speed/glide/turn/fade combos you can produce, ditto innovations in plastic, flight-enhancing gimmicks, etc. but what's a company whose business is making discs to do? You can't stop making them if that's the business you're in, so overlap, oversaturation, etc. Try to view this as a positive, though. It's truly a glorious time to be a disc buyer; there are so many!!!

Because it helps complete the family. They have that wing in 12/11/9, so they might as well have a 13.

You would think this didn't need to be said.

Okay I like the name Shryke WAY better than Shriek honestly. I'm sure this is the disc that the person who posted the Shriek thread was told about; there was just a miscommunication. I do think they are intending it to mean the bird although possibly a more "mythical" version like the Roc.

As to all the people complaining about another Innova high speed driver, I don't understand this complaint unless you just like complaining. Sure, Innova released the Colossus early this year, but before that their last high speed driver release was the Daedalus, which was approved February 2014. Between the Daedalus and the Colossus, they released the Thunderbird, Savant, Whale, VRoc, Wombat, Colt, VAviar, and Commander. Since the Colossus, they've released the Stud, Mirage, and Makani. It's not like they are just releasing high speed driver after high speed driver. Their releases are all over the map speed-wise.

Also, on their flight chart the Shryke sits between the Groove and Dominator, both notoriously poorly received molds. You could argue that they need to replace both of those with something decent so hopefully this is it. For those arguing that we don't need another Tern, actually the Tern is quite shallow which is one reason I don't throw them. I find something a little deeper like a Destroyer much more comfortable in my somewhat large hands. I wouldn't mind trying out a slightly deeper Tern honestly. Maybe I could buy this disc in Star and get the flight that I get out of my GStar Destroyers in better plastic.

I'd like to see a 10. Which one is 9? Valkyrie?
