I have one and love it, but I prefer the Ape for two reasons.

The wing is slightly blunter so it keeps stability after more abuse.

My Stiletto now flies only somewhat OS after tree hits.

My 3 year old Ape looks like poo but flies the same as new, almost.

And they have some glide, Stiletto and Rask also for that matter have little to no glide.

That was a weird disc.
That is probably true, very few hard throwing side arm pitchers have converted to DG so far.

If they ever do make a properly overstable disc, I bet the stamp will have wonky numbers like 14/7/2/8 or some goofy shiz.

So this thing will hit stores in Europe on 6th of May.

Wonder if there are people who have already thrown it? Is it like a DD Giant? Or closer to a Cutlass? I don't think it will be anything like an Ape.

I've not thrown it - can't get a good grip on the wide wing - but friends that tried them at the 2 disc challenge say it's closer to an overstable boss than a destroyer, if that helps. The DD guy running the event said it's faster than an enforcer, and leans to that stability more so than a trespass.

Last one from Feldie is from 2014, Ricky made one when he didn't even know what he was carrying and there are none for the new signings. Come on Dave, push your team a bit.
Ricky made a new one a couple of weeks ago

Yup, I saw that and it was quite interesting. Still not too many others though.

What is also interesting is that Trilogy has recently released two "Destroyer-killers" in Cutlass and Defender, but I still haven't seen them in any of the competition videos or in the bags.

It almost looks like the Bio Enforcer has taken over that slot as those seems to be really popular among top pros.

The Defender is nothing like an Ape. The Ape is truly OS while the Defender flies like a faster somewhat OS destroyer, but not Ape OS.

I got one of these in a player's pack recently. My bag is dialed in so I won't ever throw it. If anyone wants to snag one, shoot me a PM and we can work something out!
