For me with Shryke vs. Tern it wasn't even about grip. The Tern is shallow, but I never found myself throwing it poorly for that reason.

I'd release the Tern and Shryke on similar lines (slight hyzer flip). They would follow the same path and drift right a bit with some good flex. What really set the Shryke apart was how far it would flex out vs. the Tern. The Tern always seemed to fade out a bit prematurely while the Shryke held the turn longer. I also feel the extra bit of glide in the Shryke vs. the Tern is noticeable.

The Shryke does take a few throws to really dial in. It has a definite sweet spot. Throw it too softly and it'll do nothing but hyzer out. Throw it too hard flat or anny and it flips.

I do like the Tern, but at this point I don't see it working its way back into my bag against the Shryke.

I don't like the Tern. Even when I get a good rip on it and it gets good turn, I really don't like the sudden and abrupt fade that it has. Once it starts to slow down it has absolutely no glide and just searches for the ground.

This is exactly it for me. I actually DO like the Tern, but I don't bag it for the reasons above. The Tern has a great flight path until the end, when it seems to lose all momentum and fall out of the air like a rock.

For an understable disc, the Tern has a dumpy fade. The DDX has the same fade, but even stronger.

Wish I would have read this before I bought 2 of them. They're really not a good disc. I hate buying discs and then they suck so much they never make it past field practice. What a waste.

It's odd, because I've generally found Pro plastic to be the most glidey.

Surprised of all the Tern hate. I don't find mine dumpy at all. It typically doesn't really fade out unless I don't get it up to speed...

I'd say maybe I got a good one but seems to me it's pretty popular, and likely for a reason... no? Mine is Star plastic.

Unless I turn one over in a headwind, my Terns have some of that dump fade... but I'm good with it. I also like the Krait because of its straight flight and dump(y) fade. So I consider this to be somewhat of a positive for the Tern...

I haven't tried a Pro Tern yet. Are you still having these problems with Pro Terns? Is this the general consensus from all, that Pro Terns are not very good? TIA for any and all replies...

I have probably owned over 20 Terns in all plastics. I have still not encountered this discs.

The tern's fade all depends on your power, i would never call it a "dumpy" disc.

Side note, the tern in Luster plastic absolutely bombs.. i need more.

Ditto, if you're getting a dump out of a tern, you shouldn't be throwing any high speed driver's at all.
