I'm sure I can get pro destros farther than any sword, but just marginally plus the sword is much more controllable.

Well Pro Destros yeah, those glide like a motherfucker, but a good BT Sword could also go farther than a VIP or TP Sword.

I got a test shot of star light plastic destroyer. Man did it cool weird. The left is the test, the right is a normal star destroyer. The top even puffed really weird that doesn't show in the pic

That looks like what happened to my Starlite Roadrunner too except the convex wing was even more bulged than with regular RRs.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Did Champ Destroyers ever get run with Vulcan tops?

Roadrunners have the convex wing shape not exactly like that but not too many other discs aren't concave in the wing. Not quite QK family either.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I ordered some light weight star destroyer f2s from the factory store and got some 159s that are flat as a board with a high plh. Once the flashing wears down and it hits a few dozen trees it should crush. I'd guess these can from the batch of stupid stable ones from the Japan open a few years ago.
