Sorry, man, never paid a lot of attention to the runs of Champion Destroyers. They don't seem to be collected or thrown as much as Star in general (although I know there are a few people on here that like them). Are those pinwheel ones recent or an older run?

Looking at the 10 years I got, they're almost all the beautiful pop top, classic destro profile. Really excited to cycle one in this next season. Anyone actually thrown one yet?

No, I’ve got a few 168s and saw at least one store with every weight from 167-175

The newest run of destroyers feel great. Lots of dome and a nice stiff star plastic

I bought a 10 year a few weeks ago at my local shop, it was my first star destroyer. After a few throws I was noticing much more glide and subsequently more distance than I was getting out of my world's. (Keep in mind that I don't have a big arm at all.) But I'm hooked on these. I got a pop top mini-bot stamp I'm hoping will be a hair more stable, and a 158g Paul stamp I'm hoping will turn a bit then come back.

A World is WAYYY more overstable than almost any Destroyer I've ever thrown. The World is faster and quite a bit more overstable than a Destroyer.

Weird, I find they have a heavier finish for the most part but they are not anywhere near as HSS as a lot of Destroyers. They will definitely turn easier than even a generally overstable Destroyer. Just they are still going super fast as they are fading because they are so wide and shallow. I think that a worked in Destroyer is a longer and more neutral disc, at least for my arm speed.

If you add moderate wind to even a pretty stable seeming World they will drift I find, whereas a stable Destroyer will just push straight.
