I have a starlight 166g that is more overstable than my C-PD2s.

Destroyers are refusing to stay out of my bag...I've tried probably 6 different molds in my Max D slot this summer. Flows, Wraiths, DD's, Nuke's etc. Keep coming back to the Destroyer though. Some of those discs might be longer but the Destroyer's versatility and predictability keep shining through.

That and Destroyers are as fast as I need and I can put a lot of arm speed behind the throw without having to worry about a turn and burn.

Starlight does that. They all come out crazy overstable. You go much below 170g on a war speeder and it's gonna be beefy.

You know I have some 150 class star destroyers and half of them are crazy beefy and the other half are just like normal destroyers. It's very odd. I guess Innova figured out how to mold them without them coming out super stable at some point.

I have. I'll probably get around to trying one sooner or later.

So are they still making destroyers with vulcan tops because I am looking to order some destroyers online and would rather not get any destrulcans.

Any good online store should be able to recognize real Destroyers from Vultroyers if you just ask them.

What would you guys say is a minimum distance one should be able to throw before picking up something like a Destroyer? I am getting my 171 Star Teebird near 350', with an occasional 360' to 370' if I flex it out more. Same distance with TD's and Rivers, just different lines. My PD's reach just short of that, but I just use them for headwind and very overstable duties (CFR and C) and for overstable shots that need a good strong fade (S-line), not max D.

There are a few holes around here with long, open fairways where an extra 20-30' would put me in birdie range, so I was wondering if a lighter Pro Destroyer (165ish) would work for me.

A beat Pro Destroyer can be used very successfully even on lower power levels, if you can get a TeeBird to around 350' then you should be OK with a light Pro Destroyer.

A broken in lighter Pro Destroyer can work for a 350' thrower. However I'd shy away from the premium plastic versions they're a different animal compared to the Pros.

IMO... the sweetest Destroyers are the first run stars. One of the sexiest distance disks I've ever thrown. A pain to come by... so... I throw Wraiths and Kings!

Agreed. They were the first discs I could bomb. I'm glad I've got a nice pile of the X-outs DGV had a few summers back, I picked em up back when they were in the $10 range too. I could make a killing now if I wanted to sell em.

so had a tournament last weekend with the latest run of star destroyers for tournament discs. they are back to their 'original' dome but no patent number on the bottom. matched them up with first runs and the original run of standards. the echo stars however still had the vulcan top.

that teedevil is definitely a Destrulcan.
