Also both the Teebird and XL are former world distance record holders, so they are seriously long discs when thrown right.
The thing with using a wraith as a main driver is that you have to adjust your throw to compensate for the large amount of fade. Also faster discs are more sensitive to the angle you release them at which makes them much more unforgiving. I do throw and like Orcs, but only 2-3 times a round when I need that extra distance or if the hole favours a hard left fade. The rest of the time I typically throw a QJLS or a Buzzz.

Here are a few current long drivers I'd recommend to beginners
Sidewinder: Long, tons of glide and little fade.
Beast 2X: Very fast yet somewhat understable
Spectra: Super long and easy to throw. This disc is the easiest yardage money can buy.
Dragon: This disc has a ton of naysayers, but IMO it will outfly an archangel any day. Some are more overstable than others.
Any one of these drivers will provide weaker arms with the maximum possible yardage.
