I picked up a new shield stamp s-line and a c-line yesterday and got a few throws in with both before injuring my shoulder. These are exactly what I wanted as a Wraith complement. There is no turn at all out of either one. I'll have no problem swapping these into my overstable Wraith slot for forehands and headwinds. Great disc.

I've thrown all DD's in all plastics. It is a wraith bottom, but they all generally fly a bit more overstable than their wraith counterpart (or at least turn less) due to the unique Discmania anhyzer top which tends to make the disc more overstable. The newest runs of C-line (JL) and S-Line (FLAT) are a little more overstable than older DD's or P-lines.

P lines are absolute money. Mine is 169g and I am getting it out on a laser to at least 400 every time.

The P line has the same HSS as s line, and mondo glide and amazing grip. Never had a Pro plastic have anything near this HSS let alone any HSS at all!!! I'm gonna buy a stack off P line DD's. Haven't had any huge winds to test my P line with but if they don't fight it as well, I would just take out a pd2 or my S line DD!

Seriously, try out a P line DD.

Pro Wraiths would be a challenge to find matching the stability of the average P line DD's but Wraiths in the other two plastics come in variations as over stable as you want. I have a faf, champ Wraith X out that is the most over stable speed 11 disc that I have encountered. My 500' with a Destroyer arm speed buddy could only get it out to 300' with a near half circle arch and, with my 380' with a Wraith arm speed, I have no real use for it. Seriously, I can throw a Rhyno farther than it.

The three best drivers in the world share that same Firebird wing:
Innova Firebird
Discmania PD
Millennium Orion LF
(I carry all three.)
(PS. I've heard, from reliable authority, that the OLF, Sidewinder and Roadrunner share the same top as well. Making FB, PD, OLF, SW, RR a natural family.)

You can add the Starfire / Wraith to that family. They share the same top with the OLF according to http://www.discgolfsweden.se/discar/...px?DiscId=2489.

Makes sense. When I need a true distance driver (which is pretty infrequent), I'll throw a Wraith.
Orion LS shares that top as well, according to rumor. But, from personal experience, I'm not sure I agree.

Other than variations in how the same top mold might mold up, what variations are there in flight plate molds besides a diameter that matches up with the lower part (rim) of the mold?

More to the point, how can one look at a top and know what affect it might have similar to looking at the rim?
