Can't tell if that's production or not. I haven't seen one like it before. Probably because I fly dyes lol

why dont you carry destroyers in tourneys?
Yeah my buddy and I actually busted out the calipers on a Force versus Destroyer. If I remember rightly, the Destroyer was 1/25,000th deeper and 1/10,000th more narrow in rim width. I think the curve is 1/15,000th less in the Destroyer. Absolutely the most miniscule of difference.

I throw Forces in tournaments because I feel more confident in them. I have spent more time with them then I have my Destroyers. My tournament Force set up is almost the same as my Destroyer setup.

171 1st run ESP (Pink) Tailwinds and long right turns.
173 ESP (Pink second run). Long straight shots with minimal fade and flat hyzers.
171 Z Force (2nd run Green) Flex shots and slight headwinds
173 Players Cup Force (Green 1st run!) Money stable. Always ends left regardless of headwind. Skips and occasional side arms.

I could easily transition from one to the other if I had to. Destroyer is the most money disc for Innova. Force is the most money disc for Discraft.

since the release i've felt that the destroyer is the best high speed driver *EVER* for advanced-pro level players

a minimum of 4 star destroyers in the bag at all times, but there are only a few courses where i get to use them

freakishly overstable destroyer - hard finishes and wind fighting
fresh stable destroyer - small reliable helix with moderate fade
seasoned stable destroyer - big helix and straight shots with little fade
beat stable/understable destroyer - distance roller and long range turns

I'm just starting to throw destroyers, I have a domey 175 echostar which is crazy stable, a moderate dome 165 star (looks sweet) that is still really stable with more glide and a 175 domey pro, which is really stable but seems to have more glide. The only problem is these aren't much of a distance driver for me yet, cuz they only go about as far as my eagles because they are so damn stable (my eagles will go 360 regularly but I can throw most other distance drivers about 400). I need a beat in pro if anybody has any that they don't want!!

I was just thinking the same thing, I have had a destroyer in my bag since the first run and I don't think it was 2005 because I was only using the Orc at that time. I was also thinking this because I bought a few first run t-rexes in 2006.
