Default Infinite Discs Emperor

So I've seen a few photos pop up for the Infinite Discs Emperor, but there isn't really any information out there. To be honest,it looks like some sort of Destroyer variant. Hard to tell from the few pictures I've seen. Anyone have any info on this disc?

All of the posts I've seen are saying it's basically a Destroyer.

I'm guessing it's going to be an L Wing type.

We were just talking about a Destroyer-L in the Destroyer thread. It'd be interesting (in a good way) if that was manifested in the Emperor....

I've seen many a reference to -L. What is it exactly again? Slanted inner rim?

It's a Destroyer with a Leopard wing.


Actually, it would be one where the underside of the wing is straight-ish, rather than a bit concave like Destroyer wings supposedly are all supposed to be.

Given the myriad of conditions that affect the shape of the disc (temperature, humidity, a butterfly flapping its wings on the other side of the earth), the result will probably be wing shapes that run the gamut like all things do in disc golf.

Molds that actually have a true L variation like Teebird and TL, or Starfire with SL, the L has a straighter or slightly convex bottom wing. They fly less overstable.

The + molds are the ones that have the slanted inner rim.

The "L" wing is a bottom piece that is slightly convex. Innova took several of their discs and put an "L" wing bottom on them. For example, the Firebird-L (FL) is the Firebird top with that L-bottom... the normal Firebird bottom is more convave and the top wing 'hangs' over the edge more.

The TL is supposedly a Teebird with an "L" bottom, but the TL top looks more like the Archangel top than the Teebird top.

The most 'famous' "L" mold is the Beast. There was and still is a ton of confusion over the Beast-X (concave bottom) vs. the Beast-L (convex bottom), and a lot of people don't realize there are two molds with the 'Beast' name on them.

As slowplastic said, the Plus-molds have the slanted rim. The Teebird and TL were both made with the Plus rim, and were called the Teebird+ and TL+. There are also Roc+ rims out there.

The Infinite site lists the Emperor now, as a "coming soon" disc, numbers 12, 5, -1, 3... which are the Deatroyer's numbers, take 'em for what you will. Not much other info yet, though...

Scorpius, Cloudbreaker, Emperor- all just Destroyers with a different name?
