Default Gateway Plastic

Is there a line of plastics for gateway that has the stiffness of a Soft, but has of the grip of Super Stupid Soft? I see they have a new line called special blend that might meet this criteria but I was wondering if anyone else hand some experience with this?

That word "soft" is very misleading because it describes some of Gateways firmest plastic. I'm a big fan of the recent special blend although the few I've dealt with have all felt SS to me. This is the blessing and the curse of throwing Gateway: they have a plethora of plastics to choose from but it can be difficult to find backups that are similar to one another. Your best bet is to pick one out in person or call Gateway directly and describe what you're looking for. Good luck...hope this helps!

Eraser or Organic would be your best bet or get a hold of gateway and specify what your looking for and they will hook you up with a package deal.

Fossil and Fossil Fuel from RDG are both pretty stiff and grippy. Fuel being the harder blend, but it is sold out at the moment.

I love all of their plastic blends. I'd get ahold of gateway and ask for a stack of stiff super stupid soft if that's what you like.

But the OP asked for the firmness of Soft, which SSS definitely is not. If the eraser plastic does not work out, I'd recommend asking for a firmer blend of Supersoft plastic.

I've had some stiff softs with some solid grip on them, it would be worth it to contact someone from gateway on FB. Otherwise, I would say try some PWP wizards. The grip improves as they get some wear on them.

Probably a stiff Organic would be a good call. I have some recent OG stuff that is pretty close to what you are describing.


Gateway is tricky Because they are intentionally inconsistent with their plastic batches. Its great because you can find ANY feel you could ever want in a plastic, but you need to be able to feel it up first, or find a seller who can handpick the goods for you.
