Default Why isn't an X-caliber as sharp as a destroyer

I just got a new X-Caliber which is supposed to be as fast as a destroyer but when you compare them side by side the destroyers edge is much sharper. Is this normal or did I get a mis-marked disc?

The X-Caliber does not go near as far as my destroyer but it's not broken in yet either.

I don't throw either, but here is a guess. Since the XCal is more overstable, the nose is probably blunter. That is a pretty common modification to make a disc more stable.

But since I don't have either to look at, I'm guessing.

i throw both, and i find the xcal to suit a forehand shot, when i throw a back hand with it, it is more of a large hook. i can keep the destroyer straight with a back hand unlike the xcal.
