K, not as "easy" to throw as the Pro, but you can huck'em. Fantastic flick disc. Not so good directly into the wind though.

I wonder, what characteristics make a disc a good into-the-wind disc? Usually it's overstable discs, right? This one has a Fade of 3. I guess it's the 4s and 5s that make it? I don't know. My Firebirds and Monsters never turn over in the wind. My Champ Starfire couldn't make it as a wind disc either.

The Pro Wraith is definitely a longer disc than the CFR Wraith, but Pro plastic sucks!!! Freakin' thing.

I only have one Pro plastic Wraith. The new ones are CFR (Candy Fund Raiser) and you're not getting them.

The reason I don't like the Pro plastic is that it flies really nice until one day....and, "nope, not the same disc anymore."

I personally think it's worse than DX, in that you have this misconception that the Pro is a durable plastic, and it's not really. It just doesn't get dinged up, which I think is even more frustrating. At least when you ding your DX you know the disc is going to change. Pro plastic just changes one day. Not such a bad thing at JCP, but at a course where you can't make to many mistakes... I loved how my Pro Wraith flew for it's first 20 throws, now it's a different disc. And in a season where I'm only playing once or twice a week, I need dependable discs.

Do you attribute the changes in your pro plastic to the wear/tear on the disc, the change in temperature, it's natural aging process, or something else???

I have a couple of them, but haven't thrown them enough to see any noticeable changes... at least, not yet...

The change happens because I threw to many times.

It's not a grammar mistake, but a typo or a spelling error. But nice catch. I've corrected your sentence for you.

Since when can you start a proper English sentence with the word "But"? That sentence seems somewhat short on words too.
