Also go back and read your first sentence.

Then count the number of Innova offshoots that you listed in your second sentence.

Notice anything?

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
I wish they would have gone with Shrike instead of Shryke.

I'm talking about Innova saturation with tons of speed 13 drivers now, under the Innova name. The reference to Millennium and Discmania was in the context of older proven molds that are dam good discs.

Maybe improve your reading skills, Dan?

But maybe, just maybe this one will go farther!

...That being said, the Tern was/is a huge hit and they want to capitalize on that. I'm surprised that the Colossus isn't pushed more, I've only seen a few on the course. (I realize the numbers are different, but I thought this would be their Tern+)

They will push the Colossus when they have it out in lighter weights. I'm surprised that the Shryke isn't labeled as a 14 speed though that would be stepping ok the Colossus' toes wouldn't it.

I'm just glad that disc golf companies don't decide their releases based on focus groups of DGCR users: all they'd get is bitching about this and that....

We'd get lots of putters. We all throw putters 350' here.

I'd throw a Shrike. A Shryke? Is it a bird or a bad goth hair band?
