And back from the dead. So I'm thinking of adding a champ destroyer to the bag to compliment the more stable of my two star destroyers since it had been hella windy around here lately. I have a couple of glow champ destroyers but they don't have a ton of glide, do the domey champ destroyers have good glide while maintaining good stability?

My champ destroyers are super beefy however like most champ or z plastic they don't glide well. Domey, flat etc. They do glide better than most discs with similar stability. However for Destroyer glide with more wind fighting stability I'm loving my P-PD2's haven't hucked a C-Line yet but the P-Line is all the stability and durability I need for a disc of its type.

i throw domey champ destroyers. i feel they have good glide, maybe a touch less than super domey pro Destroyers. i have one decently beat in now that is a great neutral flyer with a ton of glide. just put a fresh one in the bag that has a bit of flash and is overstable but still has a ton of glide, close to a lightly beat early echo xcal with a bit more carry

Have a little turn at high speeds and strong fade when thrown flat.

Poppy Top AJ's are def my favorite as well. Easy to find consistent flying discs that mold up that way too. Especially compared to other runs of Destroyers.

Non-vulcanized destroyers are getting tough to find now. Anyone know a source that has some in the 170-172 range. I picked through all of MST's stock over the wkn and didn't find any that worked for me.

I just try to trade for destroyers with older tourney stamps. There are a bunch out there and aren't worth a ton so you can trade for them pretty easily.
