Of all the wraiths, the star is probably my least favorite. I still carry one though and can get 400' out of it when necessary. You really have to put some arm on it though.

I'm pretty new to DG and have a friend that uses a stingray for left to right shots and I thought, I gotta go get one of those. I quickly got frustrated and he told me that the stingray really starts to perform once it's been beaten up a bit and he traded me one of his for my new one. I get good left to right action on that one almost all the time and if I don't, it's because I threw it wrong.

It's sad to see any disc golfer say they hate a golf disc. If it flies, it's a good disc. It's good for someone and it's good for any given shot.

People complain about discs being way too understable (like a Stingray), that's what it's designed for. Beginners can thrive from using this disc. And more advanced players use Stingrays for awesome rollers!

Personal preferences are one thing, such as the rim is too big, the diameter is too big, too domey, etc. But to say a disc sucks, well that's just downright evil....LOL.

Calvary Coffee,

It looks like you created a monster with this post. LOL. Aaaah, this is a free country, you can hate any disc you like. Let's take full advantage of our freedoms and say that some even suck! LOL.....all in good fun. Good luck for the rest of your life with this thread.

Archangel and Dragon. I've had friends get ahold of these and throw a few good shots with them and they won't stop using them. They're just too inconsistent imo.

I know on here its popular but around me only a few people throw them. In certain areas like new england i know a lot of people throw them. I used to throw aviars and made the switch to wizards about 6 months ago. Ive taken out my old aviars and challengers just to see how they do and they just dont feel right in the hand. I think thats what it comes down to with putters is what feels comfortable to you. The only things about wizards is i wish they made some as soft as like omega supersofts. Even with that i know i wont be switching to anything else.

rooster, I think that alot of discs are like that, but I dont think the wizard is one of them, it has been popular for alot longer than just a year. I dont think anyone would go back to a avair P&A after throwing the wizard for more than a month. And the grip on the Avair X is not very good for alot of people (that and the wizards flight is better)

aviar X

Postby twmccoy » Tue Oct 10, 2006 12:48 pm

I just tried an Aviar X that I found and I don't really like it. The plastic is way too floppy and you never know what the disc will do out of your hand. I did get some decent distance out of it though.

DX Coyote: It just feels wrong in my hand, no matter how I grip it, it just doesn't feel right.

Star Sidewinder: This is a love hate disc. I've made some of my best shots ever, I've made some of my worst shots. I just can't sem to throw it consistenly. Hence it will be on ebay next week.

Champion Eagle: Way to overstable. I don't think I ever got a good throw out of it. I play in the woods and it's really nice to be able to thow a disc straight.

its that kind of additude that got the EX mold of the eagle discontinued, It used to be a great moderately overstable disc for most, or a great control driver for the rest (in DX) ;-), If you havent tried the EL mold, it should be really straight for you.
