Gonna have to beat the wraith in also.

Right now I'm bagging a star Destroyer, two star wraiths, a pro Destroyer. The wraiths with Destroyers on the ends makes a nice spectrum for me. FWIW I'm throwing 400 and do love beat Destroyers but I always loose them. Its soooooo much easier buying a beat up wraith than a beat up destroyer.

I would start a fresh Destroyer in star and pro and look to buy a used wraith or two in star plastic.

If you get a low plh straight wing DD3, perhaps around 170g or even a smidge less, its going to bomb for people for whom the average Destroyer is too much of a disc.

DGA Hurricane is a good choice. Feels almost exactly like a Destroyer in the hand as well.

I've actually been trying out a bunch of Hurricanes recently and they're just a little too OS for what I'm looking for. They're also pretty inconsistent as far as I can tell and it would be great to go out and buy a disc and know what it will fly like. I do like them, just not as a go-to.

Yup. Im trying to get away from these. The earliest runs are the bombers. Everything since the stamp/plastic change a while back has been beefy and dumpy.

The Zeus wasnt the disc im looking for either. Have a couple beat to hell Forces im using for the "destroyer" slot right now.

If you want to go up a speed. The Axiom Mayhem are great in proton out the box. Controllable turn. For tight long courses i have to leave them alone tho.

We might be the same person, though I love the way Zeuses fly. I'm just not paying 20 for a disc because there's no production run for it. I tried a Mayhem today and bombed it and picked one up in neutron.

Zeus that is production run, $20 disc is the price for the production run. This thought makes me for what is to come, player designed discs that are $30+ for production run and maybe even from companies that do not have much if any discs out to the public already and cheat using player designed discs mostly, at worst only.

Just disc down to a Wraith. Same flight path, just doesn't take as much power to get there.

The N Mayhem can be a little beefy at times. The Proton Mayhem with average dome are my fave. (Flat proton are super flippy).

The Plasma Mayhem were dumpy and OS. Not a fan.

These are the farthest drivers i have ever thrown. I have 400ft of power and these help me hit that the most effortlessly.
