Default RDG Stego: 3, 0, +1, 4

The RDG Stego has been submitted for PDGA Approval!
*Warning: Not Intended for Noodle Arms*

The Stego is the original, Gateway "Thumbtrack Proto" that many of you may already have thrown. They were released about two years ago and Gateway quickly moved away from the design because of its relentless overstability. Their loss is our gain it would seem...

With flight numbers of (3, 0, +1, 4) the Stego is without a doubt, the most overstable PnA ever to be produced. It seemingly becomes more OS the harder you throw it.
The profile is very blunt, beaded and features a unique spoiler on the leading edge of the flight plate. This acts almost like a secondary bead to push the disc into uncharted territory of PnA BEEF.

We are expecting approval from the PDGA in the next couple weeks so work these into your bag with confidence.

It has become a disc that I've had riding in my bag for a couple weeks. Initially I had no idea what good could come of it.

Now that I've been throwing it for a bit I find that it provides the perfect compliment to my Raptors for FH shots.

They roll really well, can handle ANY wind and overall are about as "predictable" as you could ever ask for a disc to be.

The Stego won't ever be our most popular mold but I think once it has approval, more than a few folks will work it into their bags and come to rely on it for a multitude of utility shots.

Yep... lol

I fear no windy approach when I reach for the Stego.
It is almost laughable how OS it can get.

Definitely less glide than a zone, and less skip. I think I am going to try to work this into a roller disc myself.
