Just been playing with my MA 50 dubs partner for a couple months so he's figured out I like Wraiths. He dug thissun out of storage and gave it to me today. He likes Sidewinders, guess I need to give him the pfn champion that I don't throw.

I can't say on the disc in that plastic but Echo Star I can tell about the plastic.
Gripwise the plastic is like bran new mega stiff Star one left in a car during summer for a week. From how it wears in, I have seen the Echo Star wear in the way that G-Star does, between Star and most Pro with the Pro plastic exception being very glossy sometimes stiff Pro being closer to the old Echo Star.

It really depends on wear and PLH but typically E* will be slightly more mellow than Star. Dudes on the "meaning of stable" thread have me paranoid to even use that word. Definitely slightly less durable and wears in a little quicker than Star. It's my favorite plastic but now Innova uses recycled plastic to make barf colored swirly to sell for a premium.

This one is 8+/10, has some dome and is somewhat OS. I've had a flat one for several years that's a flippy bomber.

Picked up a 163 gram G Star Wraith to add in with my 169 g star and 173 champ ones. First throws with it seem to make it more able to stay straight and/or flex with a good amount of spin on it than the other two, and it has that finish that makes Wraiths deadly accurate for me. I suspect it will make a Wonderful addition to my bag.

How was the flight on this? I carry a beat in E* and its my favorite disc in my bag. I throw it with a touch of hyzer and it flips up to flat and then just drifts to the right. Such a fun shot to throw.

Pretty overstable to start for my 400' golf distance. I'm also more fond of hyzerflips so i reckon this disc will prove it's real worth once it's beaten in.

You are going to love it for that shot when it beats in. I am slowly switching over may bag to mostly DC but one mold that will never leave my bag is the Wraith. Oh and the RPro Dart

I’ve been pretty happy with the switch from Trespasses to Wraiths. The trespass is awesome, but just flies like a longer fairway driver, similar lines to the undertaker. So I wanted something with a little more bite at the end of flight, which the wraith offers. Makes it a little easier to gauge, I think.

I’m not happy about it, but I invested in a couple Halo Wraiths. I plan to throw one, and keep the other on the shelf and see what the future brings. Planning to just rock a few wraiths as my distance drivers.
