I always felt like the first star Wraiths ever introduced were the best. This would be 2007. They were domey, and made out of fairly stiff, indestructible star plastic. The discs would last years without getting beat up or losing stability.

You want some dome on a Wraith. Flat star Wraiths are REALLY overstable and glideless.

I wouldn't attest the dome to stability. I have relatively flat, but mellow flying Wraiths

Agreed, it's about PLH and not dome.

PLH for sure. I've been using Star & Champion Wraiths since '06 or so when they came out. The most OS one I ever had was a pop-top bottom stamp Star. The more workable ones for me were flat. Meaning they were slightly OS but had some turn before fade.

I've been throwing the Wraith more and seeing it go as far as my 13 speeds, straighter too.

GG likes his too. Same as Conrad. I think it might be the best DD ever. Some might say Destroyer but I think the Wraith can be thrown by more people from the most powerful to more avg distance throwers with the right Wraith.

Default Halo Wraith

Got to try a Halo Wraith today for the first time. (First Halo disc I've tried of any mold). I was a little curious how it would stack up against other Wraiths flight-wise.

Disc is 173-5 and is really domey. Domier than most Wraiths I've ever seen.

Plastic is gorgeous. Reminds me of good star.

The disc itself flies pretty much like any other star Wraith I've ever thrown. Tiny bit of high speed turn and a pretty hard late fade. Impressive glide. I'd attribute that to the fact that the disc is so domey.

Overall I'm impressed. I was worried Halo plastic would be super overstable, but it isn't. Just a really good Wraith. I liked everything about how it flew. I was able to get this Wraith over 400' repeatedly.

My Halo Wraith is noticeably more overstable than my Stars, but it isn't freak OS

This one I had today definitely wasn't turning much. The glide saved it though. It faded fairly hard, but it was a glidey fade.

The distance was still impressive. It seems like the kind of Wraith that could beat into something really good with some use.
