if you want a more stable shryke, check out the champ version. I have a slightly gummy blurple champ shryke and it wants to fade.

The last 2 champion Shrykes I've thrown have been fairly stable. I won't say beefy, but they'll definitely hold up to long throws without turning and burning.

Hammer them just right and you'll get the most beautiful S curves.

Champ Shrykes are definitely not flippy. Most of them at least. I have seen a couple flippy champ Shrykes. Champion seems to be the most overstable plastic for that mold.

From all of the runs of Shrykes I've thrown, this is how I would rank stability:
INNcolor Star, XXL Star, Glow Champion, Stock Champion, Mini Stamp Star, Penned Star, Color Glow Champion, Embossed Star, G-Star, Pro.

I've thrown at least 2-3 from each of those runs. The INNcolor and XXL start near beat up Star Destroyers. The Glow Champ and Stock Champ are close to fresh Sheriffs. The Mini Stamp, Penned Star, and Color Glow are the best out of the box bombers I have yet to throw of any mold ever. Then the Embossed, G-Star, and Pro are rollers out of the box.

This is at about 450' of distance so YMMV!

How does one find these? Would the INNfuse Mummy be one?

Haven't thrown the INNfuse Mummy so I'm not sure. but the INNcolor and XXL were limited runs that the factory store and DGU ran. I know Infinite Discs still has 1-2 XXL's but buy/sell pages or EBay are the best bets for finding these now.

Very pricey. But in my opinion worth it. As they beat in, they start to gain some dome that lets it start to drift like Shrykes do, but also retain a bigger fade than stock runs.

After someone stole my Pharaoh, I had some extra Shrykes so I tuned one overstable to try to make it fly like the Pharaoh. I used one of the Shrykes with a higher shoulder that already was somewhat overstable for a Shryke. Now at a 400 ft power shot it flies like a -1/3 turn/fade. It is great and slightly more overstable than my Pharaoh was.

Just an idea if you wanted a more overstable Shryke. And yes I know some of you think this makes the disc illegal for PDGA play. I disagree with you.

The question is, how long will it last? I would guess it would require fairly regular tuning.

I am not sure.. I would assume as long as a disc that was normally like that. My other tuned discs held the shape just as if they were new that way. I am sure it will lose stability faster than normal, but I think the difference will be negligible/ not noticable
