Default Deeper Tern and Possibly More OS

I like the way the Tern and DDx flies but unfortunately the shallowness of rim leads to release issues and inconsistencies. I would just beat in Destroyers but I would rather have an out-of-box flier to be easily replaceable as I've lost at least 4 Destroyers and at least 2 Wraiths. I'm trying to stay at 2.3 rim width or less as the Boss, Katana, DD2, Shryke, and Raketen all feel really uncomfortable in my smaller hands.

Prodigy D series, solved my issues with Innova's depth. Specifically the D4 instead of the Katana. I do have a 170 gram flatish D2 that flies more like a DDx though, although out of the box the D3 might be what you're looking for.

The Krait is basically a deeper, more stable tern. Same S-shaped bottom wing, etc.

I had a Konopiste Open CD3 that flew amazing until it went in the drink where I have to wait until July or August to get it. I wish Innova made Star Kraits! How does a Krait compare to a CD3, Wraith or E*DS penned Destroyers? I had a GStar Krait a while back and it was beefy just like the Opto Flow I also had about the same time though I was only throwing it about 275' though it did bomb 325' on FHs.

Agree on the Krait. Agree that I want a Star Krait, also. The Krait is a bit more overstable than the Tern, gram for gram; the Krait has a good straight flight and dump-straight-to-the-ground fade, while the Tern will turn(!) and smoothly fade a bit more.

I was throwing at the range today, and had my 160g McBeth 3x Krait and my 168g C-CD3. Because of the light weight, the Krait gets a bit more distance and more of a flex S-turn, especially into the wind. If the Krait and CD3 were the same weight, I think their flights would be very similar, with the CD-3 maybe catching a bit more distance into headwinds and the Krait into tailwinds. Both are really excellent discs(!).

What about a Pro Destro? It would probably start where you like your Stars so it wouldn't be as big a deal if you lost one.

I traded for a G-DD (which feels better than any of the 10 or so Wraiths I've had) and it bombs almost as far as my Destroyers if not further but I feel like 2.2 or 2.3 rims feel better in tbe hand than 2.1s. I thoyght there had been a thread on this very question before but I couldn't find it. If it was for a FH disc it wouldn't matter as much but with shallower discs I can't grip as much rim so I don't power up on them as much as I should. Domey Terns are fine but they don't fly like a Tern.
