While a DD almost certainly does have a Wraith rim with an anhyzer top, the CD3 rim measures equivalent to an Innova 10 speed. I’d bet it’s an Orc rim.

My wraith love story is I had a Champ for about 2 weeks then shanked it into OB trees and giant boulders playing a practice hole and it was “gone, reduced to atoms”. Decided that it was too much disc for me and disced down to a beast and eventually a Valk.

Seems about right. If you had really small hands it might be a problem but otherwise they feel nearly the same and they fly really similar distances.

I guess I throw like a girl. Got a Madison Walker Wraith and her specs seem to suit me. Looked through a stack of about 10 today and they were all flattish and 170-172g.

The bad - the colors were all typical swirly star camo, every one of them. Got one with a touch of pink to go with some green blue yellow mix. It was the best of the bunch.

The good - the plastic feels great, a little better grip than recent star runs. Flies a bit more OS than the flat Wraiths from the current embossed run. Throwing BH on flat ground with light wind out to about 350 I got about a -.50 turn, I had to torque it to get -1. Saw a little more turn throwing FH but definitely not flippy. Plenty OS for my OS distance driver.

Never spent that much on a disc before. Hope I continue to like it and it stays in the fairway.

Yeah the Walker Wraith is my max beef Wraith. 166-167g Pros for calm/mild tailwinds, 168g Stars for mild headwinds, and the 171g Lionfish for strong headwinds. If you're not happy with the swirls you're seeing (for any disc), check out otbdiscs.com, they usually will have more attractive options than what I see on Infinite or 1010discs.

Tough loss. Those Augusta Wraiths are (IMO) the best ones ever produced. I think those are what caused people to love that mold in the first place.

I've thrown some good stars, but nothing like the CFR Augusta Wraith. Perfect combo of stability and glide.

Debating putting the Wraith back in the bag. I like that I can throw the CD3 with much less power but I miss the extra distance of the Wraith and I still can't find a stable 12 speed that I can throw as consistently as the Wraith.

My local shop now has three champy-star pink and white mix Wraiths. It is taking all of my restraint to not buy them. Good thing they charge full msrp for them, cause they’d be gone for sure.
