Curious to see one of these next to the new Ricky Destroyers. They seem to have some significant variance from other runs.

Wonder if Innova had a fresh mold machined for the Destroyer and DM convinced them to use it for the DD3 as well...

It kind of looks like a destroyer
Wow -- just when you think you've seen the geekiest post of all time someone beats it a mile.

Wow. (note -- I'm not saying it's not appropriate, I'm only saying it's an amazingly geeky post . . . . and look -- there's the pictures again!!)

Looking at it again there is a subtle difference on the nose of the destroyer vs the DD3. It's like of the difference between the firebird and FD3, where the destroyer or firebird is more of a circle end and the DD3 or FD3 is more tapered. I think on the FD3 they said it was a firebird top with a "starfire nose configuration".

A 'straighter' destroyer or one that has a hint of turn is an important disc to have. I'm using either a beat Outlaw or a MAyhem for this slot right now but if I venture out again I'll for sure check out a DD3 as I generally have liked DM stuff

Has anyone compared these to the Kong yet? Are they similar at all? I have yet to throw a DD3, but I have thrown a Kong. Also, is the mold going to change at all for the production run?

I got a chance to throw my DD3 back to back with a Kong and the Kong that I threw was noticeably less stable than the DD3. Thrown hard and flat the Kong carried about 15-25' farther right (RHBH) than my DD3 and seemed to have 3/4 the fade the DD3 had. I have heard there is quite a difference between flat/domey Kongs and I cannot recall the profile of the one I threw.

As far as we know the DD3 production run should be the same as the cloudbreaker run but that is just based on the fact we have not heard that they will be different.

I saw the DD3 just got resubmitted and approved by the PDGA. It looks like the rim depth and height were both reduced in the "retest." I'm not sure what this means but I imagine it will feel and fly different than the ones released in the mystery box.

It sounds odd but the disc you're looking for is a champ glow shryke that has a BIG dome. Those are NOT flippy and carry for a mile. I have a glow champ and a color glow champ and both are identical in flight. (I also have flat ones that are VERY flippy in comparison.) FWIW, I thew these as hard as I could and only had about 20' movement to the right (RHBH) and put it pin high and 35' right of a 530' hole in a tourney last weekend. I'm really liking these for my distance drivers right now...
