I like the flight and put one in my bag, but it won't be my main destroyer for my arm speed.
I love them, heavy and overstable, and they finally softened up the swirly star, so it is closer to the early Brinsters than the later Brinsters, and that comment will likely boost their sales quite a bit.

Still going to need more time to see how they season, for now they are overstable and used for headwinds, no max D yet, but feel like they have the potential to straighten out.

I am wondering if anybody has thrown any of the new splatter runs ?
The Brinster in splatter was poop, no glide, scuffed up really easily, so wondering if the new splatter Destroyers and Teebirds are better ? Possibly softer/grippier ?

Checking some websites as well as friends with Calvin Destroyers - they are scaling overweight by 2+ grams, so plan for 177+ grams.

Just here to sulk about my perfectly seasoned metal flake destroyer that I left on the course last week. You know, the kind of destroyer that never flipped but hummed straight for days before a reliable fade? So long, old pal.

Haven't thrown them, but the Philo's have some dome to them as well. I have some bubbles in my rims on the two I got. Look pretty similar to the lighter weight Rickys. They have a flatter rim as well.

The Philo's this year are absolute money. They are a little more stable than the straight wing Ricky's but they are bombers. They push forward very well for a destroyer. It might be an optical illusion, but they appear to be a few millimeters larger in diameter than a normal destroyer. Very good straight to hyzer destroyer.

Anyone have any experience with the XXL Stargate Destroyers? I can't seem to find anything on them. Are they similar to current stock stars or something else?

I've been throwing a few XXL Stargates. They are probably a half tick more OS than the Ricky's. The lighter weights have some dome and appear to have a touch more glide than the flatter ones. I would expect the 170-172 slightly domey ones to beat in to a bomber Destroyer.

Star Destroyer question:

Are the new Raptor D's less OS than the McBeth's? Assuming they're both max weight.

If they are flat winged then yes, if not who knows.
