If you mean Wraith, CD3, and Trace, I'm with you... but I'm not gonna pay a premium for the CD3 myself, lol.

I have one of the thrower CD3s. It's a Wraith. And I don't mean it's a lot like a Wraith.

The Trace is in my bag as a longer range thumber disc. I usually throw thumbers as a short to medium range controllable approach shot in addition to a "get out of jail" utility shot. My disc of choice is a Champ Teebird, and I'd been experimenting with a Champ Thunderbird for just a little bit longer reach. The ThBird wasn't really delivering the flight path I wanted on a reliable basis, but the Trace seems to give me something similar enough to my Teebird to feel familiar, with just a little more reach.

I didn't love the Trace on backhand lines (nothing wrong with it, just nothing special about it either) but I'm looking forward to revisiting that opinion after it spends a couple months on thumber duty.

Couple more things I noticed about this disc. The glide on it is amazing which is always a joy to behold. On the Neutron ones the black ink on the stamp comes off if I so much as rub it with my thumb. I am liking this disc and it may make my bag but a bit more testing is in order first

Then don't rub it with your thumb.

No but seriously, if the stamp is that light, then the process has changed (possibly just for Streamline). MVP stamps have always been known for being stubbornly durable.

I just did some experimenting with my two Traces. Neither had any issue with stamps coming off at all, even under an abrasive cleaning cloth we use here at work on injection molded parts to remove flashing and create matte texture. (granted, I didn't really scrub down hard with the cloth)

I have, however, noticed that the two Pilots I have both have a little bit of fallout where the foil of the stamp didn't completely adhere to the plastic. Not a big deal, but on both of the discs, the lightning bolts around "Electron" have little spots missing and the Streamline logo is a bit spotty. They still look cool as hell with some sick 3-foil stamp work.

One thing I like about Streamline is that the mold the names into the rim, just like MVP. There will never be the guessing game like most other brands if the stamp happens to wear off.
