The newer Evo Mystics are nice too, the older ones with the HPP stamp tended to have an awkward dome, the Platinums have a low even dome, feel good in the hand, and is right up there with the Meteor as a solid understable mid.

I threw one in base plastic last fall. It's a very straight flier with a mellow fade. Similar to a DX Roc. I hear the premium plastic versions are more overstable at low speed, so probably between a Karma and a Warrior in stability.

I find this very intriguing. Might have to pick up a few to try out. I'm running low on R-pro rocs and these just might fit the bill.

Is this what the "Proto Mid" they had at the Fall Harvest is? I have one but have not thrown it; I got it in yet another "Dude wanted a disc I had but had nothing I wanted so I just took something to make it all end" trades. To be honest I haven't even really looked at it.

That's a Warrior top on the Gila? What do you do, mold them and then take them out in the parking lot and run over them with a truck?

Whaaatt? Wizards are super glidey in my experience. Maybe not glide 10, though. Gateways numbers are kinda odd

I agree; the majority of Wizards glide very well. However, there are certain blends that do not glide well. Very rubbery 4S comes to mind.

Yep, that was it.

They definitely are odd. I bag an element, which flies like a comet and definitely has a mid range rim, and the numbers stamped on it are 7, 9, -2, 1. Their turn and fade ratings are pretty accurate, but their speed and glide ratings are quite a bit different from other manufacturers.
