I agree. For my skill level, which I admit isn't real swift, Gateway makes some very controllable stuff.

A Surge, Sabre, and VooDoo pretty much do it for me.

KISS!

Yes, a Surge is a Discraft and the other two are Gateway. I didn't mean to imply that I only used Gateway. Sorry, I'll be more clear next time.

Just so you know once a disc is punctured ti is not allowed for use (in PDGA tourneys that is), not sure if PDGA rules govern all leagues and such.

I have a beat up elite X pred that flies much further and straighter than the significantly newer one. It also has one of those 'speed divits'. I find it sad that the disc has a crack now and had to be retired. I have noticed that as the newer one has gotten worn in its flying much straighter and longer before its hard fade.

hmm...I'm not sure that I ready to buy into further, but my beat up discs are more likely to go where I throw them,
Slower = more reliable?

One of the guys around here puts his new discs in the bed of his pick-up for a couple weeks to break them in. From his results, I'd have to say it works.

i tend to lightly sand dents and dings so there is no distraction to my throwing hand.
