You didn't say what you didn't like about the Wraith...I think that is a great step up for having some hyzer flip but still some sweeping flex back. A good controlled FH distance driver that should get you more D than the Felons.

The Sheriff is an absolute bomber on FH hyzer flips. They tend to turn over then fly turned over for like 80%+ of the flight, with a late flex back at the end. So the Wraith is better at lasers while the Sheriff is great for bombing. The Sheriff will not handle barely any wind at your FH power, be aware. Likely your Felons don't handle stiff headwinds either though...

Keep beating in that Thunderbird too, I find it a great complement to FH shots with the Felon when you need a more true sweeping hyzer, or less fade at the end of a tunnel. I think they handle wind better than the Felon too.

Wraith is exceedingly comfortable in a forehand grip. Then again, it would seem that FH grip is very prone to personal preference so YMMV.

I got a new S-line DDx and I'm loving it in practice. It hasn't made the bag yet, but it flies straight to stable with no turn out of the box. Flight numbers are 12/5/-1/2 so it either needs seasoning or I'm not throwing hard enough. Probably both, but I got it to experiment and find my own max distance FH disc. I throw CD2s as my workhorse FH driver and max out at about 350' for reference.

Bio Enforcer.

If I bagged Trilogy molds, that's what I would throw.

Just got the Infinite Disc Pharaoh and surprised by how good of a forehand disc it is. I used to throw solely forehands and this is my farthest flying one.
