I've been using two Champion Destroyers for all my distance sidearm throws. I was using one new one (overstable) & a beat one (hyzer flips). I just switched to Star for my sidearm distance discs. I should have done it along time ago. I cycle Star Destroyers for my backhand distance discs. I'm weird, I like to keep my max distance sidearm & backhand distance discs separate. I don't do that with my slower discs. I throw my fairways, mids & putters both ways. I played a few rounds in wet conditions. I just wasn't getting the grip I wanted on my Champ Destros. I have a lot more Star than Champion Destroyers. It was an easy transition. I may still pair an overstable Star Destroyer with something slightly slower and more understable for my hyzer flip flick shots. There's a 350' wooded tunnel shot on my home course that finishes slightly right. My beat Destroyers still fade out more than I'd like even on a hyzer flip sidearm. I'm thinking of going with a seasoned Star Wraith (Big Jerm inspired).

I REALLY like the latest run of destroyers. Gonna be a pain having a hard time finding overstable destroyers again, but these ones fly really nice.

I only have 1 of the new embossed ones, which happens to be a tourney stamp,(compared to 11 McBeths), and the new one is right in the middle of the pack stability wise. Great run so far

That is how both of mine are too. They are like the perfect workhorse distance driver right out of the box.

And what is embossed on them, the weight, or...? How can one ID these?

Embossed with "DESTROYER" on the underside. These fly just like 12/5/-1/3, they're money for the workhorse stability distance driver

I've seen a lot of those embossed destroyers, they all seem to be on the flatter spectrum of dome. That has been putting me off from buying them. Are the nice fliers domey, or are they more likely the flatter ones I've been seeing?

All the best flying Destroyers I've thrown were domey. And that goes for all other driver molds too. Flat discs tend to be very overstable and lack glide.

Its no accident that all the best/longest flying driver molds these days have a lot of dome.
Flat discs are useful more for severe headwind use when you don't necessarily want the disc to glide.

The *D Destroyers and first run Destroyers that everyone absolutely loves for their incredible glide/distance are for the most part on the flat side.

I perfer the Destroyers with dome but I've thrown some flat Destroyers that went a long long way because of the high speed turn they had.
