Talking Gator Power

For everyone who likes to make 150-200ft side arm "S" shots, the gator is a disc that just does the work literally on call. The disc is very overstable, but has more glide than the Zone. I see many players using much faster discs to make these side arm shots....which if not thrown just right, will skip beyond the target.

The gator is great for side arm hyzer shots too, as it has a dependable finish and controlled skip. Using the disc backhand is great for limited length shots that need to finish hard to the left...again, using a bigger disc can do the same, but can easily overshoot and even skip past the target.

Anyone else swear by having one of these dependable utility discs in the bag?

The best part is that it is easier to control than many of the faster discs, but has the stability to finish hard, but NOT too hard, where other lighter side arm discs will just stay str8 or shoot off to the left if you are RHFH
