Stars will start out more stable, and beat in a bit and act much like a pro i think.

I had a mint colored natural beauty about a year and a half ago. I used to use it for forehands. lost it on hole # 12 of Parma's old layout. Had my name and number on it. Someone had to have picked it up.

I love my wraiths, they're my go to distance driver. A star wraith was the first disc I broke 400 with, and a pro wraith is the only disc I've managed to break 500' on flat ground with. I've got 3-4 in my bag, and pull them out a lot on longer courses.

Default goodbye star wraith

My 2yo daughter left my pink Star Wraith on the fairway the other day (#18 Grandview, DSM).
She was picking up my lie and toddling around with the discs and she dropped it and no one seemed to notice, until we were all strapped into our car seats.
Just couldn't go back. I hope the group behind me likes it as much as I did.
This is, like, the third time I've told this story, I just hope that the person who found it might read it somehow.

I was thinking, haven't I seen this story before?

It was really hard for me yesterday to resist paying $20 for a pretty yellow Star Wraith yesterday. I ended up just getting the Pro.

Quick question that I thought of after seeing your post, Cali...

What's the deal with Augusta Wraiths? It seems like a few people love them and pay a lot for them. Are they just collector discs, or are they especially great throwers?


EDIT... also, those of you like Cali who have collector Wraiths or just a collection of throwers, post a pic for us to see!

Augusta wraiths are the first run wraiths. It has been said that the Champ and star augusta wraiths are the most consistent molds there were of the wraiths.

Do they fly any differently?

Augustas weren't the true "First Runs". The black Protostar stamped Star Wraiths were the actual first runs. The Augusta's are popular because they are super flat and fly faster and more consistent than any other run of Wraith ever produced. I threw them and loved them for a few years but moved on to the Destroyer since you can find consistency in current molds for a lot less money.

Here are a few more I have/had and used as throwers.






...and here is the disc that sparked my short stint with the Wraith. My first disc to break 350, my first ace and just a great thrower overall.
