Default Are all Destroyers pretty overstable?

Just recently found a Star Destroyer 175. The thing is a pig, great for sidearm shots and makes a awesome distance drive when thrown with an anhyzer and allowed to flex and fade back at the end.

I would like to try one closer to 171 grams or so, but am afraid that it wont be the same disc.

Looking for anyone that has any experience with this disc, does it seem pretty consistent mold to mold?

Thanks

I have a friend who has (2) 175 star Destroyers and a 168 Star Destroyer. His all seem to fly the same.

The lighter (168ish) star destroyers gradually beat in to a very manageable s-curve disc and eventually a great disc for those left to right holes (anny). Even the 175's beat in to become a lot straighter eventually.

I carry two star destroyers, one is 169g and the other is 175g. my 169 is more tailwind and power flex. the 175 can be used the same way but it is a bit firmer and is better for a straight shot with fade.

Just like with the Boss, I've noticed some inconsistency with the Destroyers. I had one champ Destroyer, it wasn't beat in and was stable (not overstable); it flew similar to a Champ Wraith for me. I lost that one, replaced it with another champ Destroyer and this one is very overstable.

I've thrown several Star Destroyers in the 167-169 range, and all of them fly very nice. Hyzer when fresh and beat in to excellent S-curve discs.

The Champ Destroyers I've thrown were 169g-175g. I prefer the lighter ones -- fly very overstable but long out of the box. Slow beat in.

For the record, throw forehands ~400', and backhands ~350' of golf distance. I prefer the lighter Destroyers as better fliers than the heavier ones, even in the wind.

I use DX plastic Destroyers. 166 to 170gm. The reason I use the DX is because I noticed the Star plastic Destroyers side by side to a DX, you can visibly see a higher crown on the Star. The DX plastic appears to be flat on the top. Anybody else notice the difference in the profiles between the DX and Star plastics?

Default Star Destroyer

Mine is 169g and I love throwing it sidearm, it's very consistent. Even though it is not heavy it is great into headwinds and I've heard from friends that even the 175's fly the same

I carry 168-169 Pro and Star Destroyers for RHBH which fly slightly understable for me. I use 172+ for stable and anhyzer shots sidearm shots.
My 168s are far more controllable, especially in the Pro plastic.

I carry 1 in pro 165g and a DX 166g, the pro is good and stable the Dx is easier to turn. I also have a Discraft Force 171 that flies very close to a Destroyer
