I've got a couple of uber-stiff pro destroyers that even with a couple years of wear on them, are still pretty stable. I would be interested in some of these softer flippy pro destroyers. as a compliment to my current arsenal.

No, just don't buy pros like the one you did. Pros rule

Pro destros are easily my favourite destros. Never seen or heard of such a flippy destro before.

Well if Innova can stamp out understable P-PD2's I'm not surprised about an understable Pro Destroyer.

But yeah, Pro Destroyers are amazing, just try to find some with higher PLHs.

Pro tunes easily bending the outside edge up adds HSS and LSS.
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 just got a champ glow that I did a stamp for and its just like the Bubble Bosses from 09. Tiny bubbles in the rim, flat as hell, and 167g. Can't wait to toss it.

Been playing about a year and a half and just started throwing Destroyers so I am not the most experienced but here are my findings so far.

Bought a white DX and loved it. Stable and seem to fit the Innova ratings. Lost it in the water.
Purchased a yellow DX figuring it would be the same but alas it was not. Understable and can flip easily but if thrown with slight hyzer then I can get good distance.
Decided to purchase Star Destroyer last week. Very overstable. Probably too much disc for my power but am hoping it will break in and improve.

It really helped to get on here and see other players with tons more experience than me and they have similar experieces. I guess my thing is that there should not be such a wide discrepancy between the flight characteristics of the models\plastics and if there is then they should just have different names and ratings. I'm ok with a little variation but the difference between my yellow DX Destroyer and my Star Destroyer is huge to say the least.

I love throwing destroyers but after I run through my backup stock I'm going to try and find something else. I work at a dg store so I get to examine a lot of plastic and the inconsistencies with the destroyer are absolutely horrible, over 75% of the destroyers we get in all plastics are destrulcans. I have a few light echo star destrulcans that I really like and throw well but molding variations really irk me for some reason. Why did they have to fuck with the destroyer?

I have shelved the Destroyer in favor of the Force. I have yet to find a flippy Force in Z/ESP when new, where as it is 50/50 on Champ/Star Destroyers anymore when new. I bought two Destroyers a few weeks back, one orange and one red. One was a meathook and the other was about as stable as a sidewinder into a headwind. Anybody else having issues with Champ/Star Destroyers? And the Destroyers I go were not the Destrulcans either.

** Shameless plug...I will be posting up my Star Destroyers for sale this weekend

pulled a vibram open 2008 champ destro off the shelf, pop top 169g, to replace a z force that turns like a z nuke now, 2 FR destros in the bag, usually worried about losing them, will pick a nuke to throw instead, need to find a couple more pop top 169 Champs.......

The 08 domey Champ CFR Destroyers are awesome. I don't know much about the current run of Star Destroyers, I have heard a lot people have had mixed results though. The older domey marbled star and the domey echo star dominate my bag. I also use flat first runs for turnover shots.

This is exactly what I am talking about. I have to find this year, then I have to find CFR and then marbled domey echo. It's like trying to find a good roc or a stack of good wizards.

Are the Avery Destroyers not well liked? I have one in my stack, and its one of my favorite. Nice plastic, not poppy topped, a little turn, but not much. Flies a lot like a first run Destroyer to me. I'm asking because it seems like people rag on them a little.
