I have a whole bunch of different Shrykes in all plastics. The Karina Nowles one is WAY flatter than all of them. I just don't like the way it flies. Something similar to a Freedom. Lots of high speed turn, poor glide, then a dumpy fade.

Terns and Shrykes are great discs, but you still find poor ones out there.

So far, the only bad Terns I have encountered were Pro. The only bad Shrykes were flat.

Back from my first field test of my new stack of shrykes..

Thought the Eveliina Luster one would be the most OS, but no...but it gave me the best distance

The color glow flew the same line as the Luster but has less glide

Lisa Fajkus splatter Star was the best one..quite stable for my arm speed it basically flew straight with a nice fade at the end

After this my driver setup will be
Luster Shryke...splatter Star shryke...tour series Force...Nate Doss Ti Force

Tried a very lightweight Shryke today. 152g star. I was expecting a super flippy, long, glidey disc. That's pretty much exactly what I got. Thrown downwind the light Shryke was great. Big, high, looping S curve bombs. Thrown into a slight headwind it flipped like a paper plate. No surprise there.

The plastic itself is shoddy. When Innova makes really light star discs they seem to put air bubbles in them. This gives the disc an overall rough looking appearance.

I had to throw this Shryke with a lot of hyzer to keep it from burning right. It also seemed to work best if thrown very high. This allowed the disc to flex out all over the place with a lot of side to side movement. Top distance was about 410' downwind. It would have been more, but I was throwing on a cold day and the ground was muddy. I was having some grip issues.

Overall, this disc is fairly useless for me on a course. Its too flippy and not the least bit controllable. Distance is there. I'd be interested to try this disc on a warmer day in calmer conditions. The distance with a Shryke that lightweight is fairly effortless.

This Shryke would be perfect for noodle arms looking for some real easy distance. Again, it sure as hell shouldn't be used on any hole where accuracy is a concern.

Picked up a 8/10 max weight proto gstar shryke from the used bin today and am curious what the consensus is on these. A storm is rolling in to OKC as we speak so I won't be able to do any testing for a few days so I figured I'd ask the audience. Thoughts?

Flippy, but super long. Don't throw it into a headwind. G* Shrykes are really fun, but not always the most consistent. They take a little while to learn.

Be patient with that disc and practice with it. You'll probably end up liking it, and it might become your longest driver.

Yep, send it to me. I will make a good home for it, and it will get plenty of use as I throw it on my home course. Lightweight Shrykes = darn good drivers.
