They are comparable to drivers by Innova, Discraft, and a few other manufacturers.

They aren't very popular. From what I can tell from throwing some sabres, they aren't very consistent, but that could be said of any manufacturer so I'm not sure why they don't get any love. Sabres are supposed to fly like teebirds, but have a very thick flight plate and are domey as all getout. I found them a little more Stable than teebirds, but the S plastic beats in and changes very quickly in a driver. The blaze is very firebird-esque and feels great. I'd compare it to a more overstable firebird mold but don't know how it beats in. Those are the only two I've thrown though.

Gateway only sells putters. Literally, they only sell putters.

I have a Slayer around 171 grams and it is really fast, pretty overstable like a Destroyer or brand new Z Nuke. It isn't any longer so I am not using it so I don't know how it will break in.

What kind of plastic? I know suregrip feels great new and beats in quickly and poorly in the drivers (prone to warped rims in my experience), but Evo is tough as nails and beats in very slowly. Instead of warping, the few beat up evo drivers I've seen looked like they were chipped.
