Update: another day on the course with the Destiny and the Star Shryke. Weather is moving in, but there was virtually no wind, in a "calm before the storm" kind of way.

The good news is that my putting was great.

As to the Shryke, I had the same problems with this disc I've had before: grip-lock, inconsistent flights. And lest you say "it's the archer not the arrow", I didn't have any of these problems with the Destiny today. The Destiny outflew the Shryke by as far as 30-50 feet at times. Also, I did see what some others are saying: the Shryke had a bit of stability and faded very nicely.

So the Shryke gets to stay at home unless I'm taking drivers to the range. I might be curious to try a Champion Shryke when they come out in regular production and I can get one in a price less than what DGU charges (not to mention more realistic shipping costs). Maybe the Shryke would be a great forehand disc, or a (mild) headwind disc. Time will tell on that...

I'm telling you, I've yet to find a disc by any manufacturer that can hang with the Destiny. It might be in a class of its own. King is close, but its not quite there.

Testify! I totally agree. The Destiny is awesome... except when the wind is beating my face. Then I reach for the DX Destroyer, or DDx, or Flow (which is OS and not broken in yet).

Yeah, the Destiny isn't a headwind disc. For calm conditions and open areas you can rip it further than anything made right now though.

The DDX is starting to get some attention from me too. I did some field work yesterday and it was continually hanging with all the other discs I brought.

Still though, for sheer bombs I'm reaching for the Destiny. I'd say Nuke SS as well, but the SS is too understable and very hard to keep on a flat line when you throw it hard.

between my shryke, destiny, D4, and catalyst the catalyst gets the most distance and is more reliable than the others. My D4 has more stability but something about their discs makes for inconsistent releases for me. The catalyst has become my go to tailwind bomber and it just flies so easily

I think the Shryke is staying in my bag. At the same weight in star plastic, it flies similar to my Terns, but a half number more HSS. Get's about 10' distance than my Terns given the same flight path - about 330' reliably, occasionally out to 350'. It feels close enough in hand to a Tern that I can basically treat it as a fresh Tern and not worry too much about too many molds to keep track of (Shryrn? Terke?).

Maybe more like a Shroove, or Grooke...

Haven't tossed a Shryke yet, but the Groove and Dominator flat suck. I hated both of them vehemently.
