Default Philo Destroyers for those with good power?

What do they fly like for those with ~450' of power? (And no, this isn't internet D, it's witnessed D. ) Straight? Flippy? A friend has some that look interesting...thoughts?

If I throw mine 10 times I'm probably averaging 415' with it. 1/10 times I might get it out to 450'

I just put one in my bag and it's pretty flippy for a brand new disc. Flat release it drifts right and has a forward fade. Net result is pretty straight. I wouldn't trust it into any headwind.

Hmm. That's what I have a champ shryke for. Might have to pass. Heck, my flippier destroyer from 2012 held up to a wind...

I think their slightly overstable. I love them. The plastic being a bit too soft works it way back into the bag once the summer heat dissipates.

It seems that the destroyers of late are all meat hooks. I mean they are suppose to be a long distance driver.

The 2017 philos are the only destroyer of recent (last couple of years) that I clicked with. I just wish the plastic would be a bit stiffer.

Interesting. I have two destroyers at 168g that are the straightest I've ever thrown right out if the box. I was concerned if these were the same or a bit more stable. Thanks for the input.

I don't have 450 feet of distance on flat ground, I max out at 430 feet and average around 405. The 2017 version flies very close to the numbers, 2018 version is a meathook for me.
