Has anyone had a chance to throw the factory store circle stamped champs? Would they be considered "good" gazelles. Looking at trying them and want to know if these are a good representative of gazelles.

Did you even try to look back 30 or 40 into this thread?

First hole I played yesterday evening; a downhiller with a tight donut hole opening to begin and the basket nicely protected by Weeping Willows. Damn those willows are growing like weeds this year with all the rain.

Anywho, parked it, best drive I've ever had on this hole! :clap: I used it a few more times for approaches. Carved some sweet lines and it was as predictable & forgiving as my Champ Leos. Just not quite as far. I think a Gazelle is in my cart to stay.

When I really seemed to get behind it it would fly a lot like my DX, but with a tiny bit more fade at the end. On flick shots where I would put too much anny on it it would turn over, but once it came out of the anny it would hold the straight line for longer than expected and then fade gently at the end. After my round I did some field work with a 10x, 11x, Glo, the Circle Champ, a DX, and a Star. The two Champ ones were consistently landing in the same area, and if I would put more effort into throwing the Circle Champ backhand it would fly on a right turning line very much like a DX does when you overpower it. Pretty sure that with some work and some beating in, this will become my go-to Gazelle because it will hold that sweet spot for way longer than a DX will.

Can't compare it to a Cheetah though. Anyone else?

The Gazelle flew, for me, like a new, beefy Gazelle. Very straight with a good fade at the end. I could get the Teebird about 20ft further on average. The Gazelle (probably because it is brand new) had a bit stronger fade than the Teebird, but I expect some of that will come out. It was flying kind of 6/4/0/2.5 for me, I'd say. It did not want to flip at all. I had a few throws that were a bit OAT-y, but still it resisted turning.

I also threw a couple of forehands with it, and saw similar results.

Overall, I agree with the above posts... a little bit shorter Totem Teebird in flight. Nice Gazelle, and a nice disc overall

In his new "old school round" video on YouTube, McBeth throws a brand new DX Gazelle 460' on the last hole. It was pretty awesome.

Would anyone be apt to selling a Black Rainbow Stamped Gazelle? Or trading for one? Doesn't have to be circle-stamped, or pre-flight. Just has sentimental value, as my first one was lost in a watery grave.

PhillyMatt 08-30-2013 03:40 PM

Don't think you'll find black with rainbow unless its circle or bar stamp.

And can't have mine, sorry
