RDG Gila: Overstable Mid
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey guys!

Just like with the Tyrant, I wanted to provide some insight into the birth of a new disc.

The Gila is the disc final mold that I "need" to make for RDG.
I've always said that I had three discs that I wanted to accomplish with this label.
1) wizard OS (Scale)
2 beefy Teeb (Tyrant)
3) KC Pro Sentinel (Gila)

Saturday night I got a text from DaveMac that he sat down with the CAD artist and drew the wing for the Gila.
This wing will be added to the Warrior top and newly created, "conventional style", midrange core that Gateway now has. You can see from design, the Gila will have a nice concave wing, high parting line and hearty bead.

Projected flight characteristics will be 5, 3, 0, 3

The new wing should provide more HSS and LSS over the current Gateway mid wing.
It will also provide the mold with more stability retention due to its design.

My plan is to first run Fossil so folks can start a Gila cycle. These should be perfect Go To mids for a lot of players as they'll season in to be straight crushers.

For those that like Sanny Sentinels, I hope this mold provides the same amount of joy to throw, at a much cheaper price point.
Oh and in the best baseline on the planet!

This is cool news JC! It just occurred to me that the discs that you make would very easily fit in Steve Brinsters bag. You must have a similar playing style.

Any timeframe for release? My refund is burning a hole in my pocket!

Is this going to be a real 0,3 or a Roc3 0,3? If it is the former I might have to convert as I'm already looking at a Scale/Wiz/Serp putter combo and the fairways would fit right in my playing style.

Trying so hard to keep a little in my paypal for when it's time.

Happy, happy, joy, joy! :D

Nice!
What will the diameter and rim width be?

I'm up for trying a nice overstable mid in Fossil for sure. I just hope the gila has and keeps its high speed stability better than Warriors. I've thrown a few Warriors and only one of them was truly 0 HSS and kept that stability for a decent period of time. The rest of them either had a tiny turn out of the box (which became more exaggerated with wear) or developed turn very quickly. I don't really like S-curve out of my mids which is what I was getting with most of the Warriors I tried. My mid slots are straight to fade, straight-straight, and flippy.

The Gila projects to have fade.
The Roc3 never was as stable as numbers suggested IMO.

That's what I meant so I'm assuming that it will be closer to a Verdict than a Roc3. Now practically my entire bag is up in the air😩
