D1 Max is noticeably shallower inside the rim and rim width is a hair less. Nose is considerably more blunt.

Caliper measurement - still some variance of +/- .15 mm in different spots around the rim, with the D1Max trending smaller than the D1 in most spots.
Rim;
D1 - 23.3 mm
X2 - 22.3 mm
D1M - 23.2 mm

Depth;
D1 - 12 mm
X2 - 10.4 mm
D1M - 10.4 mm

Flies definitely less stable than the pop-toppy D1's I've been throwing, which are in turn less stable than than the flat D1 I have that's just way too OS, or a fresh X2. This is especially true once I sanded off the flashing. I haven't thrown it enough to get a good flip up max distance shot with it, but I imagine it goes pretty far.
I don't have any pictures of an X3 but I imagine there is a bit of overlap between the X3 and the D1Max, with the D1Max just having that bit wider rim.
I'm still not a huge fan of the shallower line of discs.

I got in a few throws today with a new 174 400 D1 Max. I was throwing it with a new 174 400G D1 and a 3 month old 171 400G D1.

The D1 Max is noticably less stable mid flight. It glides a bit more and flatter before the fade kicks in. It still fades dependably. The distance potential is good. It flies like a slightly beat in D1.

Prodigy's description of the D1 Max seems to be spot on.

It's really windy here today. I needed to throw these, with my D2s, on a call day to get a better grasp on exactly how it performs but it isn't a dud. It might be a better disc for throwing forehand due to to the thinner profile.

Seppo has a instagram story up of him throwing a D1 Max >500 ft.
From that video I gotta say either I'm torquing mine too much or I got a flipper one, cause mine has more turn than my wraiths...
Reminds me of a couple super domey D2s I have with how much turn it has to it.

I admit I am a bit confused by the D-Series now. Not sure where the X drivers fit in comparison. If I were looking for something similar to a Destroyer, maybe a little more os but not faster, what Prodigy driver would that be?

X series is generally more overstable than the D series equivalent.
X D and Max should probably all net the same distance, but feel different in hand. With similar #'s stability between series being X > D > Max so an X2 is more OS than a D2 is more OS than a D2 max.
OS destroyer would be either a stable D2 or a pop top D1. From what I've thrown the D series is much more speed sensitive than my wraiths.
