Well if it is a Destroyer like disc but with better wing to me then some of the Ricky model, I would like the disc. Also hope they make the Champion blended disc too. The newer Champion Destroyers leave a bit to be desired in some of the newest discs, but not all as some just have the bubbles in the rim even bigger ones near the thickest part of rim and not like the Blizzard Champion with the bubbles all over even outside the rim on discs not on all in a mold but with every mold. I just feel that Innova is selling off old Champion discs in the warehouse as runs of the Star Ricky molds were made in really large numbers to stop making the least bought Destroyer plastic I would guess.

And discontinued in the Destroyer. It would be sad to see things the other way around the way I am afraid it might happen just to please Ricky.

The Emperor may be a Destroyer-L, as an experiment (which IMHO Innova and Infinite are doing in the Infinite line of discs). The Sphinx worked out very well (allegedly Valk top and Roadrunner bottom), so we'll see if the Emperor will, as well.

So yes, to paraphrase Shakespeare: "a Destroyer by any other name..."

It looks interesting from what the numbers look like. Hopefully I’ll get a tester as a team member and can report back.

I’ve like all three of the Infinite Discs I’ve tried so far. If I wasn’t already deeply invested in Bards I’d be putting the Ra ITB. It’s a very impressive mid. The Slab though... I love it. Super blunt, flies like a faster FAF Firebird. It’s a really good situational disc.

My wrist starts twisting just thinking about the Slab. I'm sure it's a great disc, but I just don't need that kind of beef in my bag.

Hey! You're Team Infinite Discs... even if you don't get a tester, get us some 'scoop' on what the Emperor is going to be!

Ricky came from Enforcers, which are much closer in stability to a beefy destroyer than a flippy one... I don't think they are making flippy destroyers at his request...

I hope they'll come out with some I-blend Emperors, also.

True, but Wysocki might have asked them to make his sig Destroyers a bit less stable than the beefy McBeth runs. Not necessarily 'flippy', just less beefy.

To be honest with you, I tend to think Innova just cranks out Destroyers without much of a care whether they come out beefy, flippy, or in between. They know there are enough of them out there that players can find what they want so they just mold it, stamp it, ship it.

It's just the luck of the draw from run to run what we get.

Obviously nobody can say for sure. This is just what I tend to believe given the variance seen in basically every single era of destroyer.
