I finally got a chance to try the Tern. A bit mixed feelings about the disc. Every time I was able to rip it right, it flew really nice, giving easy distance. The Innova flight stats seem to be correct. However, the rim is (for me) very hard to grip, so I had lots of early/bad releases and then of course the disc acts like it was a true overstable high speed driver.

Not going to buy one. Fun disc to toss on a field, wouldn't bag it because of the rim.

this was my first take on the disc as well the low profile is hard to get used to. I have gotten used to it and now don't get more bad shots with it then i do with any other disc. This disc has a big up side for player with slower arm speed like my self.

Yup. Took me a few rounds. One of my buddies as well. Like the disc so much I am thinking of getting the Star that disc values has, but really hate speacial stamps. Probably should just wait for thr regular one. Having one in -4 2 would be awesome.

OK, so the first Innova pro to be out there giving this disc big props? Ken Climo. He loves it, says it gives him easy controlled distance. I saw him working it out to at about 400', seems to do what he wills it to do.

I like that color combo. I would be tempted to buy one if I didn't have Vibram's R419B. Similar flight ratings but faster plus better grip.

I have one of the silver ones with the strange orange slice stamp. Just curious about the normal ones.

Yeah...I have one of those exact discs (mine is 166), and yeah I was surprised by the HSS. I bought it to replace my Mamba and it is more or less just a downwind version of my 172 Champ Tern.

I picked up a used 164 Champ Tern that's been thrown once. Anyone else see a plus rim on these?

Oh and it has a sweet Treebeard stamp.

The Tern is hands down the best Innova driver released since the Destroyer/Boss. It has some super glide, good speed, and enough stability to use it in most conditions. It pretty much flies like a broken in domey E* Destroyer.
