Default Sidearm help info

I’ve been a dominant sidearm player and have had good success with destroyers wraith and beast but recently bought a 175 star thunderbird and seems to be very os I can throw my new 168 destroyer 50ft further on same line but seems the thunderbird takes all my power and dumps is this just the current run of os thunderbird that need to break in I would think the destroyer would need more power being higher speed. or is the destroyer faster even at same power so maybe my arm speed won’t give full destroyer flight but still further than thunderbird.

Some of the Star Thunderbirds molded up very OS. Almost firebirds. Is the name of the mold handwritten in ink on the underside of the disc, or is it embossed?

I really think this mold shines in Champ plastic. You could also try one in Pro plastic if you want something straighter out of the box.

Lumberjack hit the nail on the head. Star Thunderbirds are very OS and do fly closer to Firebirds. The champion Thunderbirds seem to be very straight, fresh off the shelf. Its almost as if they are two different molds.
