Like the name, this disc has natural turn. Similar to the Archon, the Tern is a fast slightly understable disc that is designed for long shot 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. The Champion Tern flight numbers reflect a more stable flight.
Diameter: 21.1 cm
Rim Width: 2.3 cm
Best Choice for: Shot Shaping Driver, Great Glide, Out of the Box Roller
Star: 165-175g The Star Line is created with a special blend of grippy, resilient polymers. Star Plastic offers the same outstanding durability of Innova's regular Champion Plastic, plus improved grip like the Pro Plastic. High performance, longevity, and superior grip make Innova Star discs the ideal choice for your game.
GStar: 165-175g GStar is a blend of Star that adds flexibility and even more grip. GStar is opaque like Star, but features a pearlescent sheen. Their allure is only surpassed by their beautiful flight. GStar discs have a smooth, gradual transition in flight and the same durability as the Star Line
StarLite: 130-159g The StarLite line incorporates Blizzard technology into Innova's popular Star plastic. This results in high speed, premium plastic drivers in weights all the way down to 130 grams!
EchoStar: 165-175g Discs once destined for the landfill are now given new life as our Echo Star Line. Made up of a blend of high-tech recycled plastic with a minimum of 50% pre-consumer waste, every Echo Star disc has nearly the same durability as Innova's premium plastics with a superior grip.
Champion: 160-175g The Champion Line is produced with hi-tech plastic that provides outstanding performance and durability. Champion discs are distinguished by a clear or pearlescent plastic that retains original flight characteristics for an extended period of time. Whether used in heavily wooded situations, or on extremely rugged courses, Champion Line plastic will continue to perform predictably and avoid damage.
Pro: 165-175g Pro Line discs are manufactured using a special blend of plastics designed to provide unique qualities which offer increased durability (compared to our DX plastic) and provide an enhanced grip (when compared to the Champion plastic). The Pro Line of discs provide additional glide when compared to all Innova's other disc lines and are more economic than the premium Champion or Star Line discs.
Each disc has a distinct "personality"; the flight path that makes that disc unique. Flight Ratings can be used to compare Innova golf discs to each other. Other companies have adopted a similar system, but it’s important to note that flight ratings shouldn’t be used to compare discs between brands since each company rates discs differently. Flight Ratings are based on right hand backhand (RHBH) throws.
SPEED 1 TO 14 Speed is the rate at which a disc can travel through the air. Speed 14 Distance Drivers are the fastest, having the PDGA maximum legal wing width. Faster discs cut into the wind with less effort and are best when throwing up wind. Slower discs take more power to throw upwind, but they’re easier to throw more accurately and may actually go farther downwind. High speed discs are not recommended for beginners as they require more power to fly properly. GLIDE 1 TO 7 Glide describes the discs ability to maintain loft during flight. Discs with more glide are best for new players, and for producing maximum distance. Beginners wanting more distance should choose discs with more glide. Discs with less glide are more accurate in high wind situations. TURN +1 TO -5 High Speed Turn is the tendency of a disc to turn over or bank to the right (for RHBH throws) during the initial part of the flight. A disc with a +1 rating is most resistant to turning over, while a -5 rating will turn the most. Discs rated -3 to -5 make good roller discs. Discs with less turn are more accurate in the wind. Discs with more turn are easier to throw for beginners. FADE 0 TO 5 Low Speed Fade is the discs tendency to hook left (for RHBH throws) at the end of the flight. Fade is rated from 0 to 5. A disc rated 0 will finish straightest, while a disc rated 5 will hook hard at the end of the flight. High fade discs are usually used for Spike and Skip shots.
