Honestly, what I take most from that series of photos is that it really shines a light on just how much variation there is across various runs of the same mold, particularly for wide wing distance drivers. Both the PLH and the shoulder vary so much, it's hard to say if there really is a mold difference between the Destroyer and the DD3, or if they just molded up / cooled differently.

At this point, I tend to believe the latter. But the destroyers may have a minutely more "blunt" nose, which might indicate a different top?

It sure looks tasty. Right in the sweet spot between PD2 and workable Destroyers

I received my DD3 cloud breaker and have had quite a few chances to throw it. It has taken over my Destroyer slot. I throw my destroyers on golf lines to 425 but don’t really throw any distance lines ever.
Comparing the cloud breaker (175) to philo Destroyer(169) the Cloud Breaker gets about the same distance, but doesn’t force over into a turn as easily as the philo Destroyer. Interestingly it seems easier to keep from dumping, as in it gets up to speed easier. It is not extremely different from a Destroyer but it does have some subtle differences.
My forehands with a tight flex have been amazing with the Cloud Breaker.

Glow philo. I thought the DD3 was a very user friendly Destroyer, more penetrating fade and good hss without falling to a hyzer early. It doesnt magically add 50 ft, but the plastic is sweet.

no release date yet. The ones from the mystery box were proto not first run. I believe there were 750 boxes, so 750 discs.
