I just had a 167 *Tern show up at my house the other day. It's the dopest! Flip up and big glidey turn when thrown on hyzer more hyzer for straighter shots and flat for big ass turnovers. Bomber for sure.

Took this disc in the course for the first time last night After having only done field work with it. I must say I am nothing less than impressed, I was getting near 400' of distance with th I had boy. Also on my home course there's a few lines that just seen to require the Tern, or something like it. Great disc!

I happen to have a lead on some E*Terns. I liked the pair of Stars I had, much more than the Champs I've tried, so what makes E*s special?

I wish I knew. Maybe they are just like the hyrbid child of Champ and Star, both of which have their pluses. Mid to high 160s just bomb without burning for me.

Latest Tern I threw was a shimmer? star. Metallic looking silver plastic. I'm not sure I love the plastic. It seems to ding easily and not be durable. The disc itself is outstanding. Very domey with a ton of glide. Perfect Tern flight. Pretty big high speed turn followed by a healthy fade. Huge S curve bomber. I rather enjoyed this disc. It reminded me of a Shryke.

Probably the best flying Tern I've thrown in years. Domier than most I've seen too.

I'd love to know what the plastic was on the World's Star Terns. Those were the best ever. A few always available on eBay, but pretty pricey.

EStars are composed partially of recycled material. They tend to start out identically ot Stars (in feel and flight), then after some use they rather quickly (I'd even say "suddenly") break in, and my experience is that when they break in, they're just that much better. It IS hard to explain...

I'm not a fan of Shimmer Star. I got a Mystere to try out when the CFR Shmmer Stars was all that had been made. I did not like the feel of the plastic (a bit too close to GStar for my liking), and I did not like the flight of the Shimmer Star Mystere at all.

The Star Mysteres are vastly superior in feel and flight.

I currently have 2 champ and 1 echostar Terns in my bag

the E* is domier than the champ and quite a bit less HSS

I would say the plastic is better for this time of year (grip / feel wise) if you are in northern climes

Well, I've thrown 2 shimmer star discs now. The Tern and Mystere. The plastic is only meh for me. It seems worse than regular star and gets beat up easily. The Tern flew very well, but the Mystere didn't. I agree that I liked the regular star Mystere more than the shimmer one. It seems like Innova did a knockoff of Discraft's ti plastic. The ti plastic is better quality though.
