*NEW* Gateway Chief Mold

Hey all, I've been in contact with Dave and Danny at Gateway, and they have retooled the Gateway Chief;

Evolution Plastic
Flat
MORE STABLE

I'll be doing a thorough look at this new disc in Evo plastic, and will be comparing it to the S plastic "old" mold. Here are some pictures for your review...

OLD ON LEFT, NEW ON RIGHT


OLD MOLD


NEW MOLD






The "dome" you might see on the blue one, is actually just a shadow, it's pretty board flat as well.

Dave was very happy with how flat the Evo plastic came out, he said there is slightly more dome than the old S version. But I'm telling you this, it's freaking flat. If you loved the old chief, you just might marry the new chief.

If you have any specific questions, or want specific pictures, please post them here prior to the 27th of Dec. I'll have a video up soon after that.

The profile with the new bottom and higher parting line make it look like a good forehand disc and quite a bit more stability. Looks ringer esque. I like it. Good job Gateway

How much more OS is the new mold? I threw the original mold a few times and liked it but didn't like it for too long. I was expecting it to be more stable (both HSS and LSS) but it almost flew like a slightly beat in Wizard.

Wow, so would this be the 3rd major retool of the Chief then? I seem to recall they had a very different mold they were calling the Chief a decade ago or so which got discontinued very quickly (or maybe only released as protos). Then we have the more recent Chiefs and now these new Chiefs which look totally different. Given how different these new ones look, I wish they had just called it a new mold. That profile actually reminds me a lot of the Axiom Envy.
