Default Slower Wraith?

I have been trying to throw a Pro Wraith, but it seems to be too fast for me at speed 11. What are some other discs that fly similar to the wraith, but require less arm speed? I have heard that an Orc or Beast might work well, are there any other suggestions?

Welcome to DGCR. Do you mean slower discs that fly like a Wraith for you or fly like a Wraith for someone who can get them up to speed? If you are throwing a Pro Wraith less than 300 ft try a Latitude River in GL plastic or a DX Teebird.

I meant a slower disc that is easier to get up to speed and flies like a Wraith should. I average about 280 ft with my Pro Wraith, but I just cant turn it over quite yet.

Dropping one speed isn't much. You may be better with a Sidewinder or Leopard.

Flies like a Wraith should in a lower speed disc?

Eagle.

/thread.

However, the typical recommendations of Teebirds, Leopards, Rivers, and Stalkers are always a good bet for a slower speed driver that can fly a better line with less power for newer players.

Teebird, Saint, or Stag would be my suggestions.

Wraith is a turn and fade driver.

Orc.
OLF.
Eagle X.

Orc is pretty close to the Wraith, but I would recommend you first try a Champion Viking. Some might say it's not like a Wraith, but it might be a good disc or you.

My next suggestion is a Gold Line Saint, as it will season in nicely.

At ~280' I'd go to a Gstar Teebird. Should be stable enough to be trustworthy like the Wraith would be, but straight/glidey and easier to get up to speed. Plus everyone has a use for Teebirds, no matter if they throw 250' or 450'.
