I just know the current runs are even more overstable than the beefcake pop top 160s from a few years ago. I have one from that run in my bag that is about 2 years old and it's just NOW starting to become a straight flier. I think another year before it becomes more of a distance turnover boomer. These new ones are even more overstable when new, so it will probably take many many years to beat them in.

Unless you play on rocks.

I have two Pro Destroyers that I purchased in late 2011. They were flat out of the box and held an anhyzer line the whole time. They haven't gotten very flippy yet, but I don't really throw them often where I'm going to possibly hit a tree.

Yeah it takes me a long time to season my discs too, but I think that's because I carry more discs than the guy whose Destroyer I'm talking about. He uses fewer discs and molds than a lot of people, so he's working that Destroyer more. Plus some spike hyzers into the winter ice (we play all year round) is probably close to throwing the discs into a parking lot. It does the trick.

The disc now has that touch of understability in the high speed portion of the flight and the generous fade to match that makes the Destroyer one of the classic molds in my opinion. But it took a bit of a beating to get the newer run there it seems.
