The Innova Star Tern is a slightly understable distance driver. The Tern has excellent speed and a flight path that maximizes glide over the entire flight. Similar to the Archon, the Tern designed for long shaping throws. In the hands of a powerful player, it just may be one of the farthest flying discs due to the long glide and natural turn. This disc golf driver is ideal for players looking to get distance from a controlled slight turning driver with ample glide. A power thrower can throw it on a hyzer line, let it flip, glide and hook back up at the end of the flight for serious distance. Overpowering this disc is not necessary.
It is a great choice for glide, shot shaping drives, and as an out of the box roller.

About Star plastic in general - it has the durability of Champion plastic with the superior all-weather grip of Pro plastic. Star discs have the same flight rating characteristics of Champion discs, although some Star Lite discs may be slightly more high-speed stable. Star retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastics.

What others have said:
"The Star Tern went into my bag immediately and I now carry two of them. It is a great disc for throwing uphill and hyzer flip. It also holds a nice anhyzer line." - Hannah Leatherman
"I am loving the Champion Tern. It is similar to my TeeBird but gets me farther down the fairway. It is a true flyer that holds the line you put it on." - Kevin McCoy
"The Tern is a long range driver with a great combination of distance and control. I like using it for long, downwind field shots and long anhyzers. At the end of its flight the Tern has a very unique lift that yields an increase in distance over my other long range drivers." - Chris Sprague
"One of my farthest flying discs. Fast and under stable. I like to keep a mix of these in different weights." - Karina Nowels
