The Destroyer I have sucks compared to the Bosses...At least as pure max D is concerned.

The sub 140 bosses are really the best pure max D ones of the lot.

Hmm, gotta get a boss then. Are the destros too LSS or what seems to be the deal with them? I wonder if you could beat that out of them as it works with max weights.

Seeing all the variation I really think it's disc to disc...I have a 138 Boss, but it's too overstable for max D. Compared to my 156 Boss the parting line is at least a few mm higher.

They just seem a lot slower. My 138 Boss is about the same stability as the Destroyer and flies on similar lines, but it is always 20' longer. My 156 Boss is longer than either.

You're probably right. I got to throw a decent amount of these this weekend from other people who picked them up from the tourney (so they were all from the same batch) and all the sub 140 bosses were the biggest bombers, the 150 bosses and destroyers were all too LSS for pure max D.

Also the katanas and wraiths sucked.

Welp, getting a sub 140 Boss, so could go either way.

The Boss I got (kind of Merlot colored) had the lowest PLH of any of the Blizzard or F2 Bosses we had. The owner of CDGS also said he tested a bunch and there were awesome ones and lemons in each mold. My 138 Boss bombs if I release it with a decent amount of anhyzer...It's easier to keep it over than the 154 Destroyer, but the Merlot one is still best because it actually has some high speed turn.

154-155 destrouyers and bosses were identical for me. both in the 500-550ft range(when I connected, what you think that shits on command?)

when I hit it right these had enough stability to hook up. If I hyzer flipped the lights over they didn't come back in time to get more distance

Did you try throwing them ridiculously high? If not, please do and let me know what happens. My longest throw lifted higher than I ever usually try and throw.

without me reading this entire thing, what are you guys finding in terms of bubble ratio between the flight plate and rim for best performance? from what i've seen so far the ones with no bubbles in the rim are more stable which makes sense but i was wondering if anyone has any input on the best ratio for them and what distance range you're hitting with it.

Threw a guys 150 boss yesterday and it turned more than the two 135 destroyers I'd previously tried. I liked the destroyer's HSS more for my flicking.

Anyone nail a tree with one yet? I recall the rims having a little give to them and could see dings changing it's shape.

yeah I've smashed some trees and a metal wire they use to anchor telephone poles and haven't had any major issues with warpage yet.

As I posted previously I think flight plate bubbles are the best because that's the best place to lose weight. The closer to the Aerobie ring it is(no flighplate at all), the farther it's going to fly.

I was thinking of trying one of the Wraiths out. How did it suck? (let the off-color jokes begin)
