I really like my escapes, especially the biofuzion. It is by far my most used disc. I don't have the arm you have but I can get mine out to 350 max. I gained a consistent further distance with the escapes vs the teebirds but it wasn't by much more. If anything if you are hitting what you are with the teebirds now i would even take it up maybe to a speed 11-12 for the max distance shots and stick with the teebirds for everything else below that. With all that said give the escapes a try Ii highly recommend them.

I like the Avenger for what my Teebird will not reach comfortably.

Orc could work for you, speed 10 but very similar flight to a wraith. Personally, once I get past a comfortable distance for my Teebirds (375ish) I switch up to a Boss, either pro or star depending on the shot.

The Sword is a nice controllable driver to me. I have tried an Escape though and it seemed pretty darn good if you're looking for something a little slower. I'm surprised no one suggested a Wraith yet. It's pretty much a classic for good distance with control.

What are some other suggestions you guys have for control drivers around this speed, that might be an easy transition from Teebirds and Eagles??
Glow Champ Valkyrie's are a good stable disc. Champ Valkyrie's are a little more straight to understable. If you are looking for something similar to a Wraith, try an Orc, I like it in pro plastic but star plastic is nice too. For the past month I did add a Blizzard Wraith 150 to my bag and I've been getting some effortless distance. Good luck in your search.

Just throwing Orion LF and LS out there since they haven't been mentioned yet. OLFs are great longish control drivers. Can't go wrong with PDs though.

If you're looking for a longer wraith, check out the Trespass. It has similar feel in hand and same width rim as the wraith. My bio fusion Trespass is easily 50' further than my eagles and teebirds on hyzer lines.

Also, I'm thinking something's not working if you're only getting 15-25' further with a wraith than a teebird. I've got some max wt. glow wraiths that are almost opto flow overstable so maybe its the discs??

Check out the Orc & Beast. I'd also say the PD is a great Distance Driver if you wanna cycle them.

Well to be honest, it's probably been over 6 months since I picked up my wraiths. I have really improved my form since then too. Maybe I need to grab some new ones to work in. I only have two stars, one is 174 the other 167.

Def not looking for anything faster than a wraith at this point
Whats the consensus on which run of wraiths are best. Pre-agusta? What does that even refer to?
