So which one is going to forgive lower armspeed and just go the farthest? I haven't tried anything Millennium, but I've been really impressed by the distance potential of the Tern in the past, as well as the DDX.
I think the Tern or Shryke are Innova's most forgiving distance discs for small arms. They're fast, but glide well enough to squeeze out every foot possible. I'd avoid the Daedalus. Its a squirly disc and IMO doesn't fly as far as it should based on the numbers it was assigned. The Mamba could work too, but even at low speed its erratic.

My gstar is my new go-to distance driver. I can't believe how far this thing glides. Also can't believe it's faster yet more controllable than my Terns. What an amazing disc, seriously.

I know. Its like they took an already very satisfactory disc (Tern) and refined it even more to create the Shryke. The Shryke really is one of (if not the) best distance disc on the market right now.

For a speed 13 disc its surprisingly throwable.

I just wish the Shryke was as shallow as the Tern...

The depth is a pretty happy medium imo. Right between a tern and a ds

This is the good thing about Innova overlap. You have two discs (three is you include the DDx) that do basically the same thing, but feel different enough that they can accommodate players with different feel needs.

That's actually what I like about the Shryke, that it's deeper than a Tern.
