I have one of those gold Air Force Destroyers and its really pretty in person.

Depends on which beefy McBeth and which PD2. The very early runs of McBeth destroyers were super overstable with little glide. They're definitely more overstable than any PD2 that I've thrown. The current run is still plenty overstable and is comparable to the PD2... I've thrown PD2s that are more overstable and I've thrown PD2s that are not as overstable.

Yes, my 150g PM Destroyer has bubbles. Still beefy, 150 PM files like my 175 AJ.

Ok, interesting. It was the first time I had seen these and definitely stood out to me.

Basically all the McBeths <160g I've seen look like that. I've seen some as low as maybe 134g even.

I've seen older S/DS Stars with bubbles in the rims too. I know they are doing it now for the lighter McBeths, but it definitely happened back in the day as well.
