The Tern is a high-speed control driver for anyone. Its balance of -4 Turn and +2 Fade allow for a variety of medium to strong throws with a predictable S-curve movement. Advanced throwers will find that a good snap will make the Tern work with a wide range of release angles and two-stage flights. Newer throwers will find the Tern very forgiving, with the "flex shot" yielding predictable long placement shots. The Tern is shaping up to be another classic distance driver design from Innova!

The Tern STAR is made from Innova's grippy and durable STAR line of plastic. Please note that Innova has given the Star Tern a turn rating of -4, which is more understable than its Champion plastic counterpart, rated at -2.

    The Tern is a fabulous distance driver for players with intermediate power.
    At ~250-300+ power, you can turn it over enough to get a long glide and distance, but it has enough low speed fade to come back at the end and make your shot land predictably. The shallow rim makes control a lot easier than the wide rim distance drivers of similar speed. You can also throw it with some Anhyzer and it will turn over smoothly and only fade at the end - as opposed to turning over and crashing into the ground. I like all of the Star, G-star and Echo Star plastics for this Disc. At this point G-Star is my favorite. Try lower weight (e.g. Star Lite) Terns if you have less power, or just want more initial speed and understability.

    This disc has become real popular. It helped Valerie Jenkins win Worlds this year.

    Advantages: - Good distance with intermediate power.
    - S shape line makes for predictable flight patterns.
    - Shallow rim is easy to control.

    Disadvantages: - Might be a bit too understable to use in windy conditions.
