I got an Assassin, Apache, S Mystic, S Element today.

I think I like the S Element a little better than the Evo Element.

The mystic seems like a shorter Gazelle. A turn and fade mid.

The Apache is awesome. Longer than a teebird for me. A little more turn with reliable fade. Sort of like a Valk or maybe a Viking, if I could get any turn out of a Viking that is.

The assassin is also longer to me than a teebird, but less fade than the Apache. More like a Sidewinder or Roadrunner.

I don't know why people say Gateway drivers suck. They seem pretty awesome to me, if you find the right one.

I would like to try some of the mids in RFF, especially the Scout.

Wow. I threw 7 down on 9 holes today using just the wizard.

Previous record on that 9 was 5 down, and previous record on 18 was 7 down.

Scored -1 today for the third time ever on a certain 18 hole course. Game isn't suffering from the new discs. I do find that I miss certain discs, especially turnover mids and drivers. Also, none of the discs have that characteristic, like the teebird or rhyno, that lets me throw a big anny and know the disc will fade back to flat right before landing. I keep getting bad rolls on this shot, and the discs with more fade come back too fast for a big anny. I don't think I can play with a gateway only bag, but there are definitely some keepers, especially the wizard and apache.

That surprises me. The GGGT chart puts the demon as an even more HSS drone, and the blaze as a faster drone. Meanwhile, it says the drone is more HSS than a warrior with about the same fade.

I've thrown a drone, and I can't imagine it holding an anny long enough to do what a rhyno or teebird does. I think it would come back way to fast.

I've tried this shot with a warrior, and it comes back way too fast.

However, I can't believe the GGGT chart ratings for the savage. The savage seems WAAAAYYYY more stable than the GGGT ratings. So IDK. Are you saying the blaze is not as HSS as the GGGT chart says, or do you think I ought to be able to do a big anny with a warrior, or what?

sorry should have said s demon they beat is kind fast then fly like a longer champ rhyno. I misread fire bird for tee bird on the other part a savage is closer to a teebird. one of the light s illusions might work for that teebird shot.

OK, maybe a beat demon. But I find the Savage is WAAAAAYYYY more OS than a Teebird. At least mine seems more like a max or teerex or SL for that matter. All those discs just seem like impossibly overstable meat hooks to me.
