Default rediscovered the pro destroyer

haven't thrown one in a while, not since i discovered the nuke. picked up a a 171 pro destroyer a threw it they freaking bomb. flex shot for easy 380ft. i threw it flat like i used to trying for a straight shot 330-350. i guess a got a little more snap than i used to. i got a slow left turn out of it rhfh. landed pin high 80 ft left of a 396ft hole. a lot more forgiving than my z nukes. not going to rush and replace them but its an idea now. plus need to see how they beat in.

Pro Destroyers are in the top-3 of my favorite ever max D discs, they are just so easy to bomb.

If you like the Pro Destroyer but are worried about them beating in, give the P-PD2 a try. It starts out like a more overstable Pro Destroyer, and will most likely last longer in the sweet spot as it beats in.

What is it about the pro that would make it better than the champ/star? My limited experience has shown me that the different plastics wear differently, but never noticed a huge difference in flight. What would cause it? Thanks.

usually the pro is a little less stable than champ/star. It also has a little more glide, but i feel this has more to do with the stability than the plastic itself. breaks in faster.

I love pro plastic for all of the above mentioned reasons. And imho it doesn't beat it that fast unless you are slamming it into trees... which shouldn't happen with a destroyer for sure.

The molecules in champ and star are tighter, for some reason this means less glide, a dx destroyer will bomb the farthest out of the box.

I just discovered the Pro Destroyer last summer and it's one of my favorites as well. Pro plastic beats in quicker, but as strive mentioned, it ain't THAT fast unless your constantly slamming wood. I've had Pro discs like the Wraith be reliable for 3-4 years before they started getting squirrelly.

The dome on my Pro Destro is warped. I miss my Star Destro with a passion. I used to crush that thing.

My pro Destoryer is def my max D driver, it glides forever and if you catch a tail wind you wont be getting it back. I throw 3 different destoryers, Pro for max D, a flat top CFR for tight long shots and a domeir CFR for overstable distance, windy situations, and hyzer shots.

Cant say enough about the difference between the 3, the Pro has such a different feel than the champ or star I have thrown. I dont throw the Pro anywhere close to trees or other stuff that could effect long term stability of the disc. It is also very good on long flex shots holds the anny forever and consistenly comes back for a good smooth finish.

Go buy a Pro Destoryer.

Pro Destroyers are my absolute favorite distance disc. They are awesome right out of the box and they really don't beat in that quickly....since they are only $10, who really cares anyway. I keep a few in rotation and they have held up very well.
