Yeah but that's the thing about the Groove. Whether you've bought 5 or 500 OR EVEN 0 the only answer to that question is "I've bought enough."

Looking online, people seem to not like the Groove calling it gimmicky and the Shryke is more praised and popular. I wish I could try them both, but I can’t really invest in more than 1 disc. Thanks for your help deciding!
Just get the Shryke.

If the Groove feels more comfortable in the hand, then look at the wings of all the Grooves you have available to you and find the one in the middle of them all, if there is only 1 Groove, get the Shryke.

Only one real way to solve this conundrum. Buy a Shryke and a Groove. Take them to a field and throw them side by side. Somehow, Innova saw fit to give these discs the same flight numbers. They aren't even close. The Shryke is flippier than any Groove I've ever thrown. It flexes out on massive S curve lines. The Groove on the other hand is much more overstable than listed. It flies like a brick and has almost no glide.

If you throw sidearm hard and need an overstable disc, get the Groove. If you want a more understable disc for long flex bombs, get the Shryke.

I'll say one thing: If you get a Groove you'll throw it a few times and then feel an intense desire to leave it on the course somewhere. The disc flat out sucks.

The groove I had never had a chance to be thrown. I had just switched arms so started throwing control drivers more. It wasn’t terrible but I didn’t like the groove. The thing was really OS too...

The Groove I had was an awesome flex disc. It was the first disc I ever reached 400' with. I lost it at some point, as I usually do with my longest distance drivers, and didn't bother replacing it because I had found the Katana, which I could throw further, but I also lost many Katanas, all of which were super amazingly long. Then at some point, the new Katanas I would buy flew nothing like my old bombers (the new ones wanted to fade too soon without holding the turn). So my point is...ummm...I want my old Katanas back!

I was gifted a groove for Christmas, but never got around to throwing it. I’d be open to a trade if you’re interested. PM if so.
