I still want to find one of those “flippy” Destroyers everyone talks about.

I agree. However if you can get the lower weights of the premium plastics, then maybe some experienced slower yet powerful arms can use the mold. I know that the above 166-167 gram weight of disc makes the disc need too much power, more then I can generate. Also due to the plastic Champion will be less OS then Star as a gennral Innova guide so maybe if people use a Destroyer in Champion, then it will work for them. I know I will be look for low dome with the flat part on them, Destructulan style as they are known when I eventually need a new Destroyer in Champion at the weight around 165 grams +/- 2 grams. I like to get around the highest weight in a disc mold I can throw well, with a few exceptions like the Impact as only the 170-172 gram and 173-174 gram discs work best.

A 150-class or low-160-class Pro Destroyer works well for noodle-armed players in windy conditions. Ditto that for DX Destroyers...

Yep the lower weights in all Destroyers works well for slower arms. That is why I use the 167 gram no more then that, in Champion.

Poor name, FT or ND would be better choices to use, 3 makes no sense. I do not know how that name was thought up. Innova has had some poor name choices like for the Whaoo, XD not great for those who are Dyslexic and in 2000's with the few plastics the mold came in, and Archon odd name that sounds like a mash of a few names.

innova probably thought a destroyer name based mold would sell better than releasing another completely new mold

If a destroyer is a best seller, a destroyer 3 must be a triple best seller!!!!

But if the Eagle were made 3 topped it would fly off the shelves. This with the inconstancy of the Eagle dome as well as L or X mold is why I went for the XL an later after premium plastics were discontinued, the Stalker.
