For those of you suggesting the Wraith, do any of you also throw PD's?

I can get my S-PD out to about 340' and my Wraith flies about the same. Are the speeds too similar for them to be useful together? If you're using PD's, what's your distance driver?

I generally skip a speed (so every other) if the disc is in the same stability slot until I get to speed 6/7 and down as the distance gaps between individual speeds tend to be wider as speeds decrease.

Ranging tends to become more important as you approach the basket which also tends to go along with your slower discs.

I carry several wraiths for distance driving. I use a 150 blizzard wraith for nonwindy days I can throw it easy and it will fly stable or I can crank it and it will slowly turn over. I have a Champ that is very stable and a Star that is very overstable almost a meathook.

wraith is the natural step I think, slower than a destroyer and they can be worked on every line. I would start with a pro and if that's too flippy get a star one. the wraith is a great start into the true distance drivers.

I don't use PDs but I have two s line ones and I would say that pairing a pd and a wraith could be done but they are so similar in speed it doesn't make much sense because they can hit similar lines, but the pd would make a good control driver between a destroyer and teebird speed discs

Thanks so much for the replies everyone.

I've got some money set aside to test some more discs this year.It seems my Max distance spot is really the only one I have a ton of trouble with(that and the Buzzz vs. Fuse thing,that is for another time).

Someone mentioned Saint. I did try a Saint out and it was just flippy for me for what I wanted it to do. My Fury is mainly for the woods,So I though the Saint would be great for big open drives. It just didn't work out.

Wraith seems like a popular one to try.

I think my Destroyer is an earlier run,before the AJ stamp. It is pretty dang beefy.

I did however pick up one of the discs I mentioned today.I got me a GStar Krait. First Drive with it I got it to around 420ft,then my next drive with it I parked this one hole and threw it everybit of 410ft. I think this disc is what I'm looking for.I can throw it flat and it turn just a bit and come back with some good fade. If you throw it low it just B-line's it to the basket. Pretty awesome disc.

I was throwing it side by side with my King,Tern(i got back) and Destroyer. I only outdrove my Krait once and that was with the King.It was maybe 15ft farther.The thing is the Krait was consistent for me. Maybe Speed 11 is what my Arm speed can handle best for big distance?

I'm thinking for now putting my Star Tern as it's sidekick so to say. Tern for big turnovers and Krait for consistency.

If star is all you have the Tern in, you would really love a Champ. A lot more stable. I'd bet you throw it farther than the Krait.

I did try a lighter one that one of my buddies has. It is a 166 and it flipped on me a little bit. Maybe if I get it around the 173 to 175 range it would not be so flippy?

Forgive me if it's been covered already, but a champ tern might be worth a shot. I bag a star and champ and the champ still gets good distance but with less right to left movement. Much more control for me and keeps my molds down

I carry a high 160's and a low 160's(can't remember exact) and they do fly slightly different. Both are way more stable than my World's Star Tern. Heck, I consider my heavier one an into the wind disc.

I'll keep that in mind. I'm trying to keep my Molds at around 12 to 13.

Good to know man. I'll see if the shop has one in my weight and to see if it's not as flippy
