DESTROYER destroyers unite!!

so...u like the destroyer eh? post your love for it!

ive always had love for the destroyer,minus the destrulcan crap. first runs,pre averys, echos, champs, pros...i love em all.my favs have to be flat, gummy stars,whether theyre first run or not...flat ones always seemed to be the bees knees.

i dont pay attention to the *D, s/ds or sd markings,i usually just ask about the feel and dome . PLH is the only real reliable way to determine stability.


theyre just the perfect size rim for max distance to me,comfortable and can be deadly if u know how to use them

Well since most of the best players in the world throw them, I think you may be on to something.

I also like mostly flat stars. Avery Destroyers are actually better, in my opinion, than some of the overly beefy pre-Averys that were coming out.

btw. theres lots of threads on destroyers but one dedicated for its appreciation seemed necessary

I love both flat and domey Destroyers. In my opinion, or at least for me, they serve different purposes. I currently have 4 in the bag, 2 flat (older pre-avery) and 2 domey (1 marbled sds, 1 echo sds). I had a champ in my bag for a while, but I prefer the grippyness of the Star plastic.

i think people just associate that with early runs

ive never really been a fan of domey ones but i know they can shape lines better. pros were really the only ones i made an exception to be domey

Destroyers have been my main FH disc in my short career. I like star the best & AJ's are all I've ever had. Don't have the arm for them BH................maybe one day!

Exactly, this is why its the only disc in my bag that is warp speed.

As for me I love the White 175 Pro Destroyers but carry a 175 almost never thrown champ for the big winds and stronger fade shots.

I like my *D First runs for max distance off the tee, my S/DS for headwinds and hyzer bombs and my Pro Destrulcans for tail wind distance comps only. I carry 4 in my bag at all times. 1 beat FR, 1 new FR, 1 heavy S/DS and 1 light SDS. Love them!
