They do that with the Starfire...Pro Starfires are all L molds and the other plastics are X. Casey as usual is firing off a bunch of misinformation and half-baked truths mixed with complete gibberish.

The "L Wing" Destroyers were just a nickname for the wonky wing that many of them had. Bad consistency control, not an actual mold piece.

The Infinite Emperor is basically an L wing Destroyer in flight. I really like it BH.

Exactly. Important distinction to be made between the actual L molds (FL, Eagle L, etc.) vs. the fatter rimmed drivers that can form up differently despite being run in exactly the same mold.

I'd prefer to avoid the misleading descriptions like "L-wing Destroyer" and just call it what it is: a Destro that formed up with a less concave wing bottom when cooling from the mold.

This will all be cleared up once I finally publish my Disc Golf Lexicon And Style/Usage Guide.

This is true, but there is one caveat: there are Star Starfire-Ls (SLs) out there. They are pretty clearly denoted as SLs, as TLs are pretty clearly marked as TLs, but Star SLs do exist. (And if you (plural) come across any, let me know and I'll give them a good home.)

Yes, they were in Champion at one point. That is the striaght wing Wraith similar to what happened to the Destroyer, this was in the 2000's when the Champion Wraith had Ken Climo's name on it.
