I cycle Wraiths and Destroyers, they feel very similar in my hand. I use Wraiths for turnovers and hyzerflips and Destroyers for my more overstable shots and headwind shots. When Destroyers beat in you can just remove a Wraith from the bag and add a new DS. Destroyer is really unstable when they are new, I’ve gotten new stock stamp that is understable and Destroyer that is more OS than a Xcaliber.

While we're on the durability subject, even Champion from a few years ago isn't the same as it is now, nor is it like 10 years ago was. Or look at Legacy's Pinnacle...there were different types of the opaque and there's different types of their translucent. It's impossible to compare properly.

I totally agree with you. I don't think the trilogy premium holds up to wear nearly as well. We have no proof but I agree. Maybe one day I could do an elasticity test.

Destroyers, OLFs, and Gazelles.

Truth.
