I'm still loving my 139 Destroyers. They are as long as seasoned Pros, but they are a lot less squirely and a lot more forgiving of nose angle issues. They are also still the best disc in my bag for long, high shots, they carry forward more than anything else I have. I'm also enjoying them for long straight shots that need to hook up hard at the end, I rarely hyzer out too early even when I give it too much hyzer or get it nose-up.

I've had success in a mild headwind and gusty tailwinds, but they get bounced around in a heavy head/cross wind. I'm pairing mine with heavy Stars.

Mine are definitely getting scuffed up easier than regular Champ, but I'm not seeing a difference in flight yet.

150g Blizzard Dominator:
Wicked fast. For me, faster than either Katana or Boss. Very understable, more so than Blizzard Katana, and nearly as so as R-Pro Katana. Not as domey as other recent Blizzard offerings, but very generous glide nonetheless. Great long bomb hyzerflipper, or turnover all the way from flat release. Pretty forgiving of nose angle upcreep for a warp-speed driver, with slightly nose-up hyzerflips still carrying out 325ish, a pretty long ways for me. Full-quality golf rips got out 360ish, longer than a pretty long ways for me. Maybe I'll try it for full-bore D at VA States this weekend (depending on weather conditions).

I kinda like this disc. More throwing is necessary before I do anything drastic, but my long-standing bag could be getting a major overhaul this season:
150 R-Pro Katana --> 150 Blizz Dominator
152 Champ Monarch --> 150 Champ Mamba
150 R-Pro Boss --> 150 Blizz Wraith

I just think I'm not meant to throw these discs. I've tried a few blizzard bosses, all heavier to help with release and feel in the hand, and they just don't fly well for distance for me. I'm pretty sure that I'll stick to pros for distance, but I'll keep the blizzard boss in the bag for huge controlled hyzers, which I can throw very predictably in the 400-420' range (which is my normal golf distance with my pros)

I don't think it has anything to do with my release or babying them after this many throws with them, I think the ones I have are just quite a bit more overstable than what I was expecting. Not a magical super-go-far disc but it will have it's uses.

Yeah, I threw my wife's Bliz Katana and it was way fun with a big tailwind but won't be finding my bag. I am also waiting for my ape to come....

I have a question: are the bubbles supposed to be in the flight plate or the rim or both? I got a 131g Destro that has only bubble in the rim. how are the different "configurations"? or just tell me what page to read.

They aim to have the bubbles only in the rim.

Probably because most of the material is located in the wing and not the flight plate. A bit of logical deduction on my part, and a bit of speculation as well :P

Getting the weight off from everywhere would be optimal, but I seem to recall that the reasoning was A) It looks nicer to not have them in the flight plate (which I disagree with) and B) leads to less x-outs.

I'm finally getting the hang of my 138 B-Boss. If I throw it at about 90-95% that is when I get a slight S out of it and max D. I can hit my 152 B-Boss @ 100% and it still won't flip. (But I have no arm... :lol: ) It's very predictable.
