But anyway, I had narrowed it down to a few usual suspects including a star wraith, a pro/gstar destroyer, a pop top champ shryke or pharaoh, or a trespass. What do you guys think?

edit: note that I have tried a champ DDX and didn't click with it.
I don't throw far (335 Max), so take this with a grain of salt, but I'll put a Wraith in the bag when I know I'll be throwing into a headwind on a long, open hole. Otherwise it's Tern all the way.

Recently put my star tern back in the bag as an interim replacement after losing my very beat pro destroyer. I'm glad I lost the destroyer because the tern is more reliable and goes further in the slot I needed filled: max distance, strong tailwind.

I'm to the point where I can't find ANYTHING that bombs in a tailwind as well as a Tern. Some other understable discs get pushed down too much and lose glide in tailwinds. Not the Tern.
