I like to cycle Pro Wraiths. I feel like I get more snap with the plastic. They beat in to nice dependable turnover discs.

That being said I do have a Star that I use as a go to when I need a bit more stability.

I was given a well used 170g Star Wraith several months ago and I am a less than 300 ft thrower so I just recently started using it. Man, I love that thing. It is just rock stable for me, throws dead straight with some fade at the end. If I should happen to lose it I would be looking for a replacement immediately!

Don't think Star is your answer imo. They are known for being over stable from what I can recollect and have seen first hand. I have two Star that are worn and quite flat. They don't turn and glide like DX in my experience. Talking from 400ft max d experience with DX when I was throwing them a year ago

Trying to build a Wraith lineup around a fantastic 168 Star that is a perfect middle stability for me. For downwind US throws, would a light DX Wraith work? There will be no trees involved on these throws.

Echostar gets flippy at a decent rate and would hold it for a while before becoming too flippy, but sadly that plastic is going the wayside.

Pro beats in faster than echo in my experience.

A light DX would probably work as well, but I’m not sure how much tailwind we’re talking about, and how much flip you actually want in the tailwind. Sometimes you gotta throw to know!

If you like and are committed to the Wraith mold, why not buy one of each? They are all going to fly differently but that's a good thing if you want it to be. Being able to throw the same mold on a number of different lines is something some people like to do. Others hate the idea. But at least you'd know first hand what they all do.

The Wraith is the only mold I do this with. I've had a hard time over the years finding a high speed driver that was comfortable to use and offered in so many good plastics. A few months ago I lost my go to beat up Star Wraith. It takes a while for Star to season so now I'm working in a lighter Pro to pair with my os/heavy Champion.

Depending on the course I'm playing I've got that Pro & Champion along with an older G* & a fresh Blizzard (159g) that get rotation in my bag.

Sure.
I'd probably choose Pro for that spot though. Might just need a touch of seasoning.

Dx wraiths are the best. Flip to flat and glide for a country mile.

They are the best until they aren't. Which can be quickly. It's a high speed driver so it hits trees at high speeds. Then you just have a taco. The good news is that you can basically buy 2 dx discs for every 1 premium plastic.
