Excellent for sidearm throwers and was the first 12 rated disc for speed in the Innova Distance Driver collection. The Destroyer is the most popular disc in the world by amateurs and professionals! It's a very fast and stable driver, but beware, beginners, you may struggle to play disc golf with this disc. That being said, the ability to take high torque throws makes for monster distance off the tee! With this disc being so popular they make it in almost every plastic they can think of!
Best Choice for: Maximum Distance, Long Hyzers, Headwind Drives
Speed: 12 | Glide: 5 | Turn: -1 | Fade: 3 | PDGA Approved
Innova's Review of the Destroyer
The Destroyer is a very fast stable long distance driver. This disc is much like a faster Wraith, but with a little more high and low speed stability.
This disc has been produced since June, 26th 2007 and doesn't seem to be slowing down one bit in flight or production. The name and designs have changed, but the disc itself gliding through the air hasn't. Here are the current plastics still being produced:
Avery is a world-class disc golfer who resides from Hinckley, Ohio touring professionally since 2000. Bringing home the coveted Disc Golf World Championship title in 2009 has been one of his pinnacle feats. To this day, he still competes at a very high level but has been slightly fading from the competition and been engaged in disc golf clinics and other great additions to disc golf.
With a joint sponsorship from Innova and Discmania, he has had multiple signatures and special edition discs made by both companies. He bags two different Destroyers in his bag, the Star and Pro. Star Destroyer is used as a go-to long-range shot where he can control the flight pattern and with the slow-speed stability has a predictable fade. In practice and occasionally competition he will throw this disc.
Ah now for the competition he brings out his big guns! While most don't think about pro-plastic as the "best" plastic, it's widely used in competition but doesn't hold up well on the durability side. Avery has a stack of Pro Destroyers just waiting for the next tournament where he uses them because he trusts them. The Pro plastic provides him with he believes is additional glide and truly believes one day he will break the world record in distance.
Avery Jenkins - "It has incredible speed & amazing downrange glide that enables it to cover lots of ground for maximum distance."
