Looks like a record on top. Circular grooving. Makes a funny noise if you scrape it with your fingernail.

How new are we talking? Haven't noticed it yet.

Zipper top indeed. My older ones don't have it. Neat.

What do I think of it? Not much. I like these Destroyers I will buy more.




Also I noticed that some [not all] of the new ones have the same foil for the entire stamp, not two different foils for top and bottom. I'm a huge fan of that. I never liked the change to the two color stamp.

Yep I bag one! It reminds me of the old patent numbers F2 I threw until it got too flippy. Right now it's just straight to fade but I know it will pick up some extra glide as it wears in without losing the HSS for very dependable distance. That's what I loved about that old Destroyer.

I threw one but seemed pretty over stable. I guess I should have tossed it a few more times.

Yeah it's currently in my "overstable" Destroyer slot. It currently goes like 350 for me and then fades pretty hard. I can get it further on a flex line, but I'm not throwing it for big distance right now; more headwinds and longer hyzers. If it's anything like my older one it'll stay very dependable with no turn for a very long time, but develop more glide and a softer, more forward fade.

Eventually I just found myself reaching for that old one on most distance drives because even though it wasn't my longest driver, it was just so dependable (and usually within 30 feet of my longer drivers). After being bagged for a couple years it finally started developing significant turn. At that point, I put it up against some of my Scorpiuses and it fly almost exactly the same lines but was consistently shorter, so the Scorpius kicked it out of the bag.

Could anyone show me a picture of a destroyer with a low PLH? I want to throw nothing but destroyers as my main driver and I'm looking for an understable one.

Not an exact answer to your question but if you are looking for flippy destroyers look for low PLH pros (super easy to see, the wing is barely higher then bottom of the rim) and current run echo stars (the ones with the picture on the stamp)

This and I've found that Pro's from recent tourneys and club orders that are a bit softer plastic start less OS and develop turn even more quickly that the stocks.
