The teedevil came out after the first of the destrulcans came out. Vulcan topped destroyers came out and people hated them. Then shortly after that the teedevil magically got made and it looked like the same thing as a destrulcan.

Also made was the domed Road Runner top/regular Wahoo top Destroyers and people hated that type as you needed world record speed to get the mold to have the flight characteristics of a Destroyer or the particular type of Destroyer would fly like an Xcalibur. At least this is what I heard/read from players who tried that type of domed Destroyer.

If Innova made regular Champion Vulacan discs, I would buy them Now as in Champion plastic the Destroyer mold with dome in the in the normal dome to flat middle top works at weights ~165 grams to about 155 grams for a good micro mini flex flight Destroyer. The Star version of Destryer with the normal dome to flat middle topdoes not work and in Star the ever so slightly lower then normal top at weights works same as the Champion Destroyer with normal dome to flat top middle. If these discs turn out to be miss-stamped Blizzard Champion Vulcans and not just Destroyers with the Vulcan top I will not buy the Champion as Blizzard is garbage having seen too many of those discs with the bubbles popping out of the disc in the used bin nearly new at storesthat have discs and used bins. Also if these are the true board flat Destroyers missing the normal dome to flat middle top/Vulcan top I will not buy as those are garbage too being less glide for some reason.

In Star for the reason of the plastic being more OS the flatter discs often do not work as then you have a disc that is the next OS tick higher mold of flight yet still in the mold of the Disc one likes. I mean one of my Champion Destroyers is the Vulcan/normal dome to flat middle top style top and it is easier to throw as one does not need to put as much power on it unlike the normal to higher dome discs, it works in Champion but not Star.
