No Problem. If I threw Destroyers I would have grabbed them myself. It is a little too much disc for me so I'll stick with my Wraiths (perfect up to 400') until I can start reaching 450.

It had some turn right out of the box, so a nice disc for max D hyzer flips or flat, high rips.
IDK, the couple dome reds I have are decently stable to overstable. I bag a flatter blue one and that thing is nice a flippy and nothing like the domey ones.

Are your reds from the Amateur Disc Golf Championships? Could have been that the reds from that run had lower PLH than the oranges. I don't have them sitting in front of me so I can't say for sure without looking.

I just got this lot from the Factory Store:



From left to right, we have a champion F2 (appears to be JL plastic), Star Wiggins, regular JL, and Star F2.

Here are the profiles, first the champion F2 compared to the Wiggins:



The champ F2 is maybe just ever so slightly higher but they are very close.

Then the Wiggins compared to the JL:



This one I didn't anticipate. The JL actually has significantly lower PLH than the Wiggins. The JL is also the domey-est of the lot; I think it will be a real bomber. Lastly, here is the JL compared to the Star F2:



These are really close as well.

I didn't expect such a big difference between the champion F2 and the regular JL and between the Star F2 and the Star Wiggins. Maybe these are all different runs or else it's just variance in the colors and how they cooled. Anyway, it's interesting and maybe useful for anyone looking to buy from the current lots being shipped from the Factory Store.

What are the most high-speed stable (headwind fighting) destroyers currently available (that I can order online, new)? Max Weight Champion? Pro Shop Jolly Launchers? Star Destroyers?

I just got one of the new jolly launcher destroyers and it's super stable with a great skip. Definitely won't be flipping over in the wind (at least not until it's beat in).

The new run of bottom stamps with the beveled edge at the shoulder are super OS, glideless pigs. It wouldn't turn over in a hurricane.

Seems like buying a Destroyer online is almost as bad as buying a Gateway putter online. I want to try out Destroyers but I'm kind of scared lol. I want to save money and get them online but I don't know if it's a good idea, how are the current runs of normal Stars turning out? Are the Wiggins any good? Are all AJ's beefy?

Most AJ's are beefy in my opinion, especially the pop tops. You can't go wrong with a destroyer, if it doesn't work out with you, just pm me.
