The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Well, I found a miss-priced Star Wraith at Sports Authority on Saturday night (marked at $6.99) and picked it up for two reasons. #1 It was over 1/2 price for Star plastic here in Eugene Oregon and #2 my online nickname has been for years Wraith (I know, silly newby picking up a disc just for the name).

I have found that one thing seems to missing from all of the disc golf sites. REVIEWS ON DISCS FOR AND BY NEW PLAYERS!!! So this is my first blog post as a newer player reviewing a disc for other newer players.

First Thoughts:
Wow, this disc has some shiny plastic, lol. I'm used to the DX plastic that has a more dull finish. The disc is now the heaviest in my bag at 175 grams.

First Throw:
Hey, you Wraith, is there a reason you are flying 150' to the left of where I threw you? This disc has a nasty fade for me as I am a RHBH thrower.

Throwing after the First Round:
This disc has a great predictable Heizer. I have yet to be able to prevent this disc from turning over, every time I throw it it flies in a nice predictable helix adding about 50 feet to my average shot.

After 4 Rounds:
I REALLY like this disc!!! Aside from being very predictable it just feels good to throw. One observation that seems to be key is this disc REALLY likes to be thrown on a VERY flat trajectory. If you can throw a low flat shot this disc will show you things that will make you blush... But really, if you can throw a nice flat line this disc will blaze a path that will make you a happy hucker. One other thing that makes me happy about this disc is that it flies FAST. I got a Beast that according to the Innova chart is a 10 for speed. According to the same chart the Wraith is an 11 and I have to say that it is night and day going from 10 speed to 11.

Please feel free to comment as input is ALWAYS appreciated.
