I like having options. If there's a noticeable difference then that's enough separation to make me interested.

The stars from like two years ago were less overstable than the current run.

Very true. New run is domier and OS. Akin to the 4x McBeth Destroyers.

Has anyone tried the Juliana Korver 9x stamped Wraiths? They look interesting. I'd like to get one from somewhere other than ebay though

Exactly. When you hear guys like Big Jerm saying that there's a new, "good" run of Wraiths means that the new run is OS. That might be good for a 600ft arm, but for most average players is going to be really quite os

New they fly like a well seasoned Star Wraith. I carry a G* and a fairly new Star Wraith in my bag. I haven’t noticed any durability issues with G* plastic and my home course is riddled with large granite cliffs and such.

OK, I'm convinced! G* Wraith is going to be my next purchase.

Regarding the new runs, flatter stars aren't as OS as the domey ones and they aren't that hard to find. There are some new champions out there that are flat with a high plh and they are the most OS Wraiths I've ever thrown.

I've recently switched to Wraiths (realized that I shouldn't be chucking massive rim stuff, go figure) and in trying to start a cycle of these. Right now I have a domey C-Line DD(which is essentially a Wraith), and a nice flat new star Wraith. I have so much control with these over the wider rimmed stuff, and I'm not losing much if any distance.

My question is what would be a good understable 11 speed for my driver slot? Right now I have a Trespass in that spot, and I expect it to beat in quickly because that's what the Swedish plastic does. Does anyone have a better suggestion for this end of the cycle until my wraiths get beat enough to slot there?

Grab a pro wraith, you'll be able to season it to understable fairly quickly
