The Innova StarLite Tern is a distance driver that is slightly understable. The Tern has excellent speed and a flight path that maximizes glide over the entire flight. Similar to the Archon, the Tern is 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. It is the ideal driver for players looking to get distance from a controlled slight turning driver with ample glide. The Star version, which has a bit more turn than the Champion, is targeted toward the less powerful player. 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 a shot shaping driver, great glide and an out of the box roller. The Tern has phenomenal speed and glide that has to be seen to be believed. Players are achieving personal bests with this disc.

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 StarLite discs may be slightly more high-speed stable. Star retains flight characteristics longer than DX or Pro Plastics.

"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
"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
