That may be true...but how far? Even if I got 20 extra feet of distance with a DD3, I wouldn’t bag it. I don’t get why Eagle would even add DD3s to his PD2 cycle. Simon and Eagle cycle PD2s and have backups. Why add another mold to your bag to cause confusion? Though I am a fan of cycling and I (try to) keep my bag as simple as possible.

Same logic that leads to most Lat64 people carrying at least Defenders + Enforcers. Or Discraft pros carrying Forces as well as a Nuke or something similar. Sometimes the more OS mold just doesn't cycle into a max distance shot as well as one that bombs immediately.
One of the most important parts of Destroyers is how historically inconsistent they are, so a different run or year can be almost a different mold.

Honestly I agree with the second part, Eagle can throw PD2's long enough that he almost breaks certain courses, to the extent where this past year he toned it down, threw more PD's and played percentages and had his most successful year. Now he claims he needs the extra 50' ?

In Eagle's case: advertising and marketing.

Very skeptical. But it is possible to improve upon existing molds.

Just think of the naysayers before the destroyer was tooled.

Have we hit the top of the bell curve of amazing, fast and controllable ultra long range distance drivers?

Doesn't have to worry about losing his perfectly beat in PD2's now.

^^^^this, and he said he likes the more forward finish to compliment his pd2's more aggresive finish. looking at the numbers i would bet small amounts of money that its a anhyzer topped shryke.

I’ve always thought that the anhyzer top makes discs less stable. If so, what would be the difference between this and the DD2? My money is still on a scorpius/destroyer-clone

It made the Tern more stable in the DDx.
