All the AJ's I've seen have all been very overstable to start with, great discs.

any of u ladies get any of these?

i scooped a hanful at first to make sure they were legit,and they are. pat #s ,s/ds , stiff with a mild dome. i have yet to throw mine but they feel amazingly grippy. incase you guys missed it,these were sds that were "found" and they did this limited stamp on them. pretty sick stamp i must say. not sure on numbers but id imagine not many. the pinks and whites went fast. id imagine the blues and yellows will be gone soon.

these are on dgv btw.

protip: there are red champystars on there too but with the new AO stamp. not sure if those are legit but i know these are :) i can see these being pricey soon.
always looking for:
flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

Yeah, I saw those on DGV. I woulda bought a fat stack but Molnar said that all he had was max weight. Max weight marbled Destroyers are nice, but not nearly as sweet as the 168-171g ones. Those are tough to find...

Thanks for the heads up, ordered a couple myself. Needed a new beefy Destroyer anyway.

I'm loving my new 170 AJ Destroyer. Flies like a seasoned destroyer to me. It was less stable than normal from the start, which I really liked a lot. I can throw it flat and it will stay on a straight line past 400'.

So I have read through this entire thread and here is my question where do the blizzard destroyers fit into all this?

Also I have an AJ *ds star destroyer... From what I gathered is this a more over stable disc for destroys and will a pro be more flippy?

Blizzards seem to be all over the place especially with Destros. I have a super beefy 134 Destro and others report flippy discs so i'd look at PLH.
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.

Blizzard Destroyers can be almost whatever, some are flip machines, some are just as overstable as you'd expect a Destroyer to be, it's all in the PLH.

And mine is way more overstable than you'd expect a max weight regular Champion to be.

I believe they are technically a bit slower (somewhat smaller wing) so i think the concensus answer you will get is no. But I would say that its dependent on the thrower and the conditions

The difference is really small, the rim width is right between Wraiths and Destroyers, but they don't fade as hard as Destroyers so they tend to have more end flight carry. I throw both equally long, the Sword just flies more neutral.
