Since despite that I keep buying wraiths hoping to find one that is oddly OS and can't, and I lost my dd today, I'm going to have to bag a destroyer for headwinds and big fades. Bah. I have never clicked with the destroyer. I might just put in a boss.

Try a dayglo yellow Star Wraith. They usually have extra beef!

Only yellow one I've seen in town is 166g or something like that. I have my doubts on it.

Here is a question for anyone that's bought a wraith lately. this season I've purchased 6 new wraiths, 5 I have thrown. One 175 started out with a little beef, but after a handful of rounds it broke in to a nice rather straight flight with a normal fade out at the end. Another star 175 that started right out at the pretty straight and never changed, a star 170 that started right in that straight spot, but hasn't been in the bag long, a star 167 that is refusing to beat in to be a bit turnover without a headwind, and two pros at 173 that have a little more turn than the stars, but better fade.
Question ia, anyone else experienceing wraiths beating in fast out of fading hard, but than seemingly stop beating in? Or starting with minimal fade and staying that way?

I might be over thinking this, but it just seems to me like I have 5 discs that are at different wear points and weights that all preform the same shot.

I really hope that they don't change the Wraith, it has been my go-to distance driver coming up on 6 years

The BWR actually flies really nice, like a wraith with a touch more glide, they go very far out of the box

I have an 11 speed arm and the Wraith is perfect for me. I cycle DX plastic Wraith's in different weights (160-175g), plus one blizzard for water holes - it floats.

Right there with ya. I think most players are 11 speed players or slower really. Anyways I've got a bottom stamp Star Wraith (175g) that is just so beefy still after hitting trees for over a year now. Are bottom stamps always this way?

Thinking about going all in on wraiths. What's the way to go with current production runs (or easy to get) if I want 3-4 to cover distance drives?

Glow champ

Bottom stamp star

I'm currently running a bottom stamp star, star, echo trio and it's working great. I really enjoy getting the same shots I got from destroyers for years, with a good drop in power requirement, using wraiths. Only lost 10-20 feet of distance if any. I am going back and forth between a Z Force (strangely not that OS at 172 grams) and a Glow Champ Wraith for that headwind distance slot. Still needed so far as I have yet to find a crazy beefy wraith in my year of looking. That's kind of what I like vs the destro tho haha.

It's preferance, really. I like the feel of a old pro, but hate them new. So a pro from a used bin is what I like for my us driver.

I use star for all of my main drives. Champ is a bit more os, glow is supposed to be even a little more os.

If you are going to get three I suggest a star, champ, and a pro. Get them in the same weight and see what you like.
