If you want a little more stability grab a nitro as well, they only go ~395 with our power, but they are overstable at that range.
My friend bags an Octane. I think I'll have to give it a try next time we go. Sounds like a pretty good disc.

Obviously they are very very different styles.
I'd think stepping up from Leopard and Underworld to Sidewinder and something like PD would be more like it. Destroyer's a huge step up.

Hitting those distances with those discs, you should be able to throw pretty much whatever. BUT if you aren't used to the bigger rims a thunderbird is a good stepping stone on the way to faster discs.

Also, I expect your just not used to the wraiths rim and it's throwing off your follow thru if it's that beefy. If I'm wrong, hold onto that thing. I havnt been able to find a star wraith with any good over stability in awhile.

I definitely second that second statement, star/echo star wraiths are just long with a little wiggle and minimal fade. Just grab some high speed driver and get used to throwing it is my advice, they all throw different.

375' with a Leopard is impressive. You could definitely step up to something much faster and push your distance to well over 400'.

A Surge or Wraith would be a good start. They're fast (but not too fast) and have a fairly neutral flight.

An S line PD will be the best disc you ever buy. As for an all out distance driver I would try a DDx and Outlaw.

I assume you're hyzer-flipping the Leopard? I'd try a Saint or a Northman next, or maybe a Champ Roadrunner.

You may benefit from a high speed driver (12+), but you seem to have a good thing going with your form. I suggest continuing to step up the speed gradually.

While you do have a valid point, personally I would step up to the high speed stuff. A volt makes a very good control driver, there would be no need to have anything else between it and a driver for all out d. With that power the benefits of a speed 12/13 driver would definitely be noticeable, so another disc would in my opinion cause eventual overlap

I would even say to go the P-PD/S-TD route. Nice speed 10 rims for both and they each are further than the discs mentioned, but faster and longer like the OP wants. Plus there would be no need to step-up from the PD for a while since you can push them out to 425' respectively. Another plus for the PD is it can be thrown in almost all wind conditions depending on the plastic.
