I would agree with that. I think for me the difference between a Wraith and a D1 is ~ 15-20' or so and I don't know how well that scales.
Also an important note is the Destroyer is wider than listed specs in star (listed 2.2, mostly 2.3) so the Wraith is much more comfortable in terms of rim size (true 2.1)

I throw the Wraith in all plastics (except Metal Flake, which I can never find), including DX. They are hard to beat for most power levels.

I guess don;t have any of the new color glow Wraiths. Are they more stable or about like a regular champ? I would definitely consider a Martin Hendel or Madison Walker tour series.

The Walker is stiff swirly star and starts out nice, the Hendel is color glow and super beefy.

Seems like Wraiths have been pretty popular with the pros lately. Big Jerm FHs them, GG throws them and rolls them, and James Conrad seems to lean on them for backhand as well.

I'd like to see another run of the production Glow Champion Wraiths again. Beef you can count on.

Wraiths have always been my preference for distance... especially the Pro Wraiths.

Destroyers seem to have more options, though

I hope the new popularity of the Wraith makes them as big as the Destroyers!

I think they'll stay the same size.

Picked up a Marm-o, double stamp with a DX double Shark stamp over the top.
