Innova Tern

Postby JHern » Mon Feb 25, 2013 12:10 pm

I picked up a first run, same great plastic they used for the Roc3. Katana-esque shallow rim depth, but the wing is not as wide. I have a feeling these are going to be a big hit, anyone throw a bunch of these yet?

I have one, but I have nothing of substance to add. It's too fast for me to really tell what it's supposed to do. The plastic is nice, though.

*adds something after he says he has nothing to add*

I'm planning on adding a "this is too fast for me but everybody else is doing it so what the Hell" driver to my bag. The Tern and Krait are early leaders for that slot. The Krait is more comfortable in the hand and they fly exactly the same for me (because I have no business throwing either one) so I'll probably go with the Krait. The Tern does seem to fly farther for me than some other high-speed discs I've tried like the Vulcan and the Archon, and it doesn't seem to dump as badly as a Boss as it slows down.

If you have any other questions about how discs I can't throw fly for me, I'll be here all week. :P

I've always been all for using at least one disc that is too much for you as a yardstick and motivation to push yourself farther. Not to mention some great results when the stars align and forcing flexibility and finger muscle power training. For perhaps one day mastering wider winged drivers after being trained hard with massive wings. Not necessarily as regular or go to driver mind you.

Straight then left is a perfectly viable and justifiable line and if a hot rod discs achieves that with more D and equal or better consistency as a shorter slower disc i say go for it. Maybe not each time but to push you forward. Don't give up you never know when and how you can overcome the form detail that keeps you from achieving more distance. If lucky a good disc can push you beyond your current limit if it does not demand more than you can give. It is a long shot but sometimes you can shoot the moon. Spoke like a true disc whore cough.... You decide.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Everytime I see this disc mentioned I have to do a double take reminding myself that this new disc by Innova is not called the "Turd".

Nor is it the "Turn" as a lot of others have misunderstood.

Anybody know where I can find this in Star plastic? From what I've read, Star Terns are more understable than Champion Terns. But there don't seem to be any Star Terns.

I found the following at Infinite Discs:

Innova states that the flight rating of this disc in Star and Champion plastic slightly differ. The flight rating for Champion Plastic is 12/6/-2/2.


I don't know if it's just a mistake, or if we will see Star in the future. I sure hope so, as I hate Champion for distance drivers.

Innova does that with just about every release. New discs get released in champ. People buy it. When sales start to drop, they run it in Star plastic. People buy it. People like new things. Ever notice that Taco Bell has something new to try every month? Check out the new CantinaBell menu... http://www.cantinabell.com/

Do they ever put different numbers on different plastics? I read that Star would be 12 6 -3 1 and Champion would be 12 6 -2 2 .

I got one last week. I like it a lot. It has become my distance driver. I always get a high-speed turn with it. I've only turned it all the way over once or twice. Usually get a nice S-curve, with lots of glide. Even if I get the nose up, the low-speed fade is not excessive.

My wife started playing about 8 months ago and was throwing about 225. I bout her a turn and it added about 40 feet to her drives. I've played a few rounds with it and found it gets easy distance even for inexperienced players. It is a very forgiving disc.
