To avoid excessive wear and tear on the old shoulder my new defenders, and all the star destroyers I have bought have gone into a hold status.

Two of the beef stars from the factory store are in my disc collector bin. These things are so dam os I know they''ll be worth something.

The blank tops are going to be for special use. Super windy days kind of thing.

The pink bio defenders will be in that class as well. But one of the defenders will be worked into my forehand rotation...cause I need to throw more forehand shots I think.

Guys, I'm out of the defender/destroyer game for backhand make the bag kind of thing.. With an aging shoulder they just hurt me some days..

My slower speed discs like the PD's in the champ plastic are long enough and overstable enough most days.

Minus the philos, with the softer plastic. Those will come out in the fall and spring when it the temps are lower like 60 f.

90% of people throwing destroyers shouldn't really be bagging them outside of an OS utility disc anyways.

Destroyers are great and it's super cool to throw what the pros are throwing, but most players would be better served by something like a wraith.

I max out about 450 and have touched 500, so I have the arm for destroyers, but there's no need because I can cover most other lines and be less dependent on wind/altitude/the day with slower discs... I lose maybe 15 feet, but gain a ton of accuracy.

I don't know what the % actually is but I get your point.

The new run is much more user friendly.

I bag a couple of Destroyers (1 GStar, 2 Stars [1 Pre-Avery, 1 beefcake]). I use the GStar where I could lose the Pre-Avery espicially for long hyzers. I use the beefy Star like a longer FireBird. I only throw about 400' but I find the Destroyer suits me better than a Wraith and goes slightly further with no accuracy drop off. My PDs are good for 360' but not into a headwind. I bonded more with the Destroyer than the Wraith and I find that the Destroyer is more FH friendly. The Wraith just doesn't quite fit right in my hand.

Default DESTROYER destroyers unite!!

What is everyone's thoughts on the MF destroyers. So is it worth getting one?or 3? Any different from other champ destroyers? I bag an old echo star, a new echo Star, and a PFN star right now. I want something that will stay stable.

If you want something that will stay stable look for a 4x McBeth from the last run... I've got one that is pure beef for me (450 max, have sniffed 500 a handful of times) and still beef for a buddy of mine who throws FH's 500. Not in use as it only goes 375 tops...

Looking for a Destroyer that is stable but not a meat hook...

For reference I can throw 425 or so. Turning my Sheriffs way too much lately.

What type(s) do you suggest?

A Philo is a good suggestion, but if you want cheaper and more available, grab a GStar. I can hit around 400 and a fresh GStar Destroyer has a little wiggle of turn, but plenty of stability for a reliable hyzer finish. I hear the newer embossed Stars are a little less stable than the earlier meat hook McBeths, but I'd still want to check them out in person.
