Default Innova Shryke

Launches first in GStar on 11/14

The Shryke is an easy to throw, very long range driver for a wide variety of players. A mild high speed turn puts the Shryke in glide mode, which along with its high aerodynamic speed, give it incredible distance. The low speed fade is also mild, which makes it easy to keep on the fairway. The Shryke is similar to our popular Tern but faster and slightly more high speed stable.

FLIGHT NUMBERS: Speed 13 | Glide 6 | Turn -2 | Fade 2

Okay. They made a Cannon. That's cool.

After Legacy copying many Innova molds, it's interesting that they are returning the favor.

Maybe they mean for this to replace the Groove, and IMHO that atrocity of a groove in the rim of that disc.

Not sure why I have any need for this disc, what with a Star Daedalus and GStar Daedalus available to me, my desire to disc down, and the Tern getting the job done for me...

Gee, another spd 13, this turn/that fade driver from Innova. How many they got now, about 20? Beyond saturation

They just released the Colossus too.

I think they're taking a page out of Trilogy's playbook and saturating the market with high speed understable for the distance - from - plastic chasers. Makes $$$.

I like the Colossus and the Tern, so I'll try it anyway.

Shrykes were large and intelligent birds, known for their cruelty.

During the Quint and Twig trilogies, shrykes were nomadic slavers, running the Great Shryke Slave Market in the Deepwoods. Later they took control of the Great Mire Road, establishing their capital at the Eastern Roost. For a number of years the shrykes were the dominant species on the Edge, as their control of the Great Mire Road allowed them to dominate the Edge's trading and commerce. Their fortunes changed at the Battle of Lufwood Mount, when the shryke army was smashed by the warriors of the Free Glades.

So Orcish?

Ok, but Trilogy is 3 brands...

This just continues to drive me away from Innova, except for some of their older gems like Sidewinder, Roadrunner, Orc, Wraith, Destroyer, Boss...and Millennium and Discmania variants. THAT was good stuff.

You mean the largest DG company refuses to be stagnant and live on past glories? What gives them the right?

Agreed. Innova has had some great innovations, and some good variants, as well. The "L" series had some successes, and the "3" series has IMHO been very succsssful, especially with the Shark3, Roc3, and Mako3. The V-Tech series gets abused and joked about, but some good discs have come out of it, including the VCobra, the (DX proto) Colt, the Stud, and the Mirage. The VRoc was also a surprisingly good disc, and while I've never tried the Whale, some have really liked it.

Innova = good company, good discs.

Good thing there aren't any other companies with a bunch of overlap.

Darn Innova.
