Meh. Assegai would have been a better name, and it needs a cool stamp.

It's got a thumb track and the tops not sunken. Mine is also a lot more stable than any Magic I've ever thrown, but it's also a proto.

Flies nothing like a magic. Gateway is releasing a bunch of putters without much glide. I'm happy for that because while they already had a great putter selection, they were all glidey discs. These make for great approach and windy day discs.

I believe that is correct.


Mine are protos (worth noting), and I love the Devil-Hawk. It feels great and is incredibly overstable with very little glide. It was very similar to those Blizzard Pigs that popped up a while ago. I like the plastic and these tend to hit and stick very well. They also handle abuse without much wear, which I think is due to the profile.


The War Spear proto that I got... I am not a fan. Mine came out kinda domey. I flattened it, which helped some, but it still felt odd. It was much less overstable, and flew like a brand new Wizard, just without the glide.

I would love to see how the production runs are coming along.

The war spear glides some if you leave the dome, still less than anything else that neutral. When I was alternating throws with my rhynos and trying to use the same motion, the war spears were coming in about the same height but 1-2ft to the right from 30ft out. The devil hawks were coming in just slightly to the right but 6-10" lower.

Once you calibrate for the height I think the war spear and devil hawk could be nice 20mph+ wind substitutes for fans of neutral or overstable putters, respectively.

We bought a few proto War spears and while I'm not a huge fan, my buddy loves his. Fairly overatable little devil, but he has sunk some stupid putts with it from distance. The only one we bought was the Proto with the Corvette stamped front and some blue bottom stamps to throw. Good headwind discs but glide sometimes is akin to a slightly aerodynamic brick.
