The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Question for everyone:  I have a DX wraith that is 164g.  It was not until I got this wraith on the lighter side that I was able to turn it over slighty (and sometimes really turn it over) and have it become the farthest disc in my bag.  The innova website has both the destroyer and boss listed with the same glide, turn, and fade ratings as the wraith, but with higher speed ratings.  So I purchased a DX destroyer at 165g thinking that I could manipulate it the same as the wraith, but go even further because it's faster.  This is not the case.  A couple times I have really thrown the destroyer far, but I have to give it everything I have (sometimes sacrificing form) and I've never turned it over for that nice little "S" flight like the wraith.  So my question is, why is that?  I totally want to try a BOSS in this lighter weight because by my logic, I should be able to turn the boss and the destroyer over just like the wraith because of the matching glide, turn, & fade numbers.  One issue I have is that the boss is not available in DX which is a concern for me because it seems that the type of plastic also plays a part here.  I also am afraid that if I try the KITANA, i will be all over the map because if its high turn.


Lastly, I found some 145g pro BOSS discs at my local disc shop, but I'm afraid that this is way too light and that will srew me up too.


Anyone have any tips, suggestions, or direction here?
