It's been a year or two since I bagged a lot of Wraiths, but I got an Augusta Wraith for xmas and just HAD to let it fly.

It's definitely in thrower condition, stamp wiped and well-used. But man, the plastic feels and looks great. It flies beautifully, at 60-70% power it flips easily but doesn't want to turn & burn. The fade is mild but dependable.

I had initially thought that it would be too close to my Destroyer and Shryke to earn a spot in the bag, but honestly it's closer to a mix between CD2 and Sidewinder because of how easily workable it is. So I think I'm going to keep throwing it! Just a sheer joy.

I used to bag a max weight Augusta CFR Wraith about 10 years ago. Great disc. Probably the best Wraith I own. Really mellow. Great glide, and it holds the high speed turn for a long time. Gradual fade too, not dumpy. This Wraith was easily capable of going over 400'. Probably the longest Wraith I've ever thrown. Definitely not as overstable as most star Wraiths.

My Augusta Wraith flies something like 11, 6, -1.5, 2. Really glidey with some decent high speed turn.

New personal best today 105m, this time with a 175g bottomstamp Star Wraith..which surprises me, never thought i could throw a 175g Star further than my 155g Blizzard one...but i did.

And the 175g bottomstamp Star Wraith was way less stable than i thought it would be. . a bottomstamp Destroyer is SUPER OS for me

I think a low 170 or a high 160g would be the sweetspot for me. . the 175g Star flew like 11, 5, 0, 1 for me. . would like a 11, 5, -1, 1 . . so a Star 167g might work

Looking at the lokal shops here in Sweden i can find:

Champ, Star, GStar, Champ Dyed, Star bottom stamp, MF Champ, Madison Star and Martin Hendel Color Glow Champ. .

Can anyone rank these ones in stability or is the Wraith similar no matter what plastic its in?

I have an Augusta and several 07 worlds CFR champ wraiths. I find they are similarly mellow. They work great for my forehands. Right at the point you think they will start to fade, they zip on forward another 30-40 feet and then have a mellow fade out, while still penetrating. Seriously the only discs I can forehand over 300.

Madison Walker Swirly Wraiths are pretty overstable relative to most wraiths. But the plastic on the discs is amazing. Grippy rubbery star. Definitely check them out!

Just buy stock runs. Don't let the manufactorers screw you over with their limited releases

Default Wraith love - post your stories

I enjoy getting screwed over.

Ill happily pay more for special runs of plastic or cool stamps. I also buy the signature/tour series discs hoping that some of that extra money goes towards supporting a players tour efforts.

Also, four or five bucks isnt a ton of money to me. If I can get a standard run disc for $15 or the same disc in a better plastic or with a cooler stamp for $20 Ill probably spend the extra $5.

I admit I'd pay a little extra if a stock disc had a really good appearance to it. Like a Z or Champion disc with a really good opaque flight plate in a good color. Sometimes there's a little price hike on eBay for something that just looks really good.

I try to stick to stock as much as possible but if I like a player that has a limited run of something I like it's ok to support them.
