Nope. Vulcan top + Wraith bottom = Archon. That is why the protos have VW written on the underside.

I don't have the time or the inclination to read through all the content here, just stumbled across this and posted what I was told by a pro this weekend. Hope the world doesn't end cause I made a mistake on a message board post

I'm not a big Destroyer thrower, and I don't usually throw base plastic, but I have a 167 DX Destroyer that was one of my first discs ever. I pulled it from obscurity yesterday, made some POST PRODUCTION MODIFICATIONS (tuned it to make it more stable) and pegged a basket from 380'. It was still stupid fast for having nicks in the rim and stupid straight after the bending. I might be convinced that a DX Destroyer is worth having around.

Funny thing is that Destroyers actually mold up well in DX and when they break in they get big D. If you wack a lot of trees (why are you throwing a destroyer?) they will get trashed pretty fast but skips and landings don't beat them up that badly. Destroyers are one of the few high speed drivers that work well in DX well at least until the moment they break in too much.

Sometimes I wonder why that Frisbee is getting bigger then it hits me.

I think the thing about DX Destroyers is that the Pro ones are only a couple bucks more a disc and with that you get the added durability of Pro at the speed at I throw them the DX's will nick up and chip on rough ground or small rocks, which can get annoying. Plus as we all know the Pro's are notorious bombers. The DX's are fun to throw though I have one that's the domiest disc I own goes for days when I get a hold of it.

Are all of the E* destroyers the vulcan top? All 3 of the E* destroyers I have are flat on top of the rim like the vulcan. What is the general consensus of the effect of this top?

Ive seen more of the lighter ones with this top than heavies. Its a tad less stable with a tad less glide than the reg destroyers

Looks as if a fairly big run of Star, Echo Star and Bottom Stamp Star Destroyers are Vulcan topped. Whoops.

Yeah, most of the max weights don't have the vulcan style top. All the lighter weights and echos I have seen have it. Stocked up on 5 max AJ dtwahs...should be set for awhile.
