Good hit Dave....and agreed to the Destroyer has a less than constant flight pattern as it ages. What bothered me the most as it's comparisons with the Wriath, and yet the Destroyer doesn't have nearly the pin point acuracy that the Wraith poseses. Regardless of mold, be it Star, champion, pro or even DX, I know exactly what my wraith will do from throw to throw. The Detroyer on the other hand, for any added distance it may or may not give a player, it is very unpredictable as far as it's flight path. This is why I love the Tee-Rex, not only is it a constistantly stable to over stable disc, but it puts up a fight into a headwind, and can be easily flipped over if needed.

Awesome! congrats on the ace. That Teebird is huntin' for an ace on several holes I play regularly. One of these days...

The Destroyer does give almost everyone a little extra distance, you can't really argue with that, however it is a little inconsistant. With that said, all Star plastic is going to change characteristics the more beat-in it gets, but I believe the Destroyer changes a little quicker than does the Teerex.
I just recently went back to driving more with my Teerex, and it paid off with an Ace last Saturday.

The first run destroyer with the large star stamp was great for the forehand drive but the newer ones with the plain logo seem to have some flaws. Now as far as the tee-rex, best all around driver (i throw 97% forehand or flick and this disk has worked!!! I have never had the problem of major flight changes between the Tee-rex (star) that I have purchased.

Well, if they could make a t-rex the same way twice, I might throw them again.
After wasting well over 100$ on crappy t-rex's that don't fly the same, each and every one, I gave up on them. Wouldn't dare buy a new one and use it in a round until trying it out in the field first, might go hard right or hard left, ya never know.

I agree. However, is it not the same phenomenom with almost every new disc that comes out? I've been told on many occasions that this "new disc" (insert name - beast, wraith whatever is the newest driver at the time) is the best thing since sliced bread and to get rid of all other drivers in my bag! I'm pretty conservative in my disc choices though, so I tend to wait a while before trying out the "latest and greatest new thing". I did pick up a Destroyer recently, and though it has its benefits, I don't think it is all THAT great. Nice hyzer though....

I could not agree more. I like the Destroyer, but I think the rim is too wide for me to release consistently. Now that it is beat in, it flies like a Wraith, and I don't throw it that much further than an Wraith, if at all. For every shot where I get an extra couple of feet with the Destroyer, there is one that I yank in the wrong direction. The Destroyer looks better on the wall (first run) than it does on the wrong side of the OB line. I'm now pretty consistently crushing the Tee-Rex at 300ft (a major accomplishment for me). If the posts are accurate at Chapel Hill, I tossed it about 320ft this afternoon! (slight tailwind). It turns over only slightly, fades dependably, and is wicked-fast. It even handles a headwind well. A new favorite. I hope they release a champ version since I think the Star wears out too quickly. Then again, I have a Star Tee-Bird that is now beat in enough that it flies like a TL. This annoyed me at first when I reached for it for a hyzer and ended up with a hyzer-flip. So I threw a new Champ Banshee in the bag for the hyzers, and the beat-in Tee-Bird is my new favorite for 220-280 straight shots on narrow fairways (we have lots of these in NC). Same thing happened with the Tee-Rex. I reached for a long hyzer one day and discovered the (beat-in) Tee-Rex makes one hell of a stable driver. It was 50 ft to the right of where I wanted it on that hole, but I'm happy to have learned the lesson. I may just bite the bullet and plan to buy a new Tee-Rex and Tee-Bird every six months, whether I think I need them or not, and a new Buzz somewhat less frequently, until there are no other molds in my bag.
