Motha****in' dx gazelle.

I might disc down for a while. Hole 14 at cp adams is a long, downhill hole, but this was a pretty nice blast.

Still love my gazelles. Glad i grabbed some dx again. It's the best gazelle.






Also we found a dx gazelle with a split in the middle with the rim still intact. We were playing dubs at acorn park which is hella flooded and my partner forgot his discs at home. I was worried he would lose one of my discs on hole 2 (i was sharing) so I said it was fortuitous to find a gazelle on the first hole and my buddies laughed because it was so broken. I picked it up and proceeded to hole 2. Hole 2 is a flooded disc eating nightmare. I handed my partner the broken gazelle and he piped the shot. We left it there for some other fortunate soul to use. May the gazelle bring luck to your rounds.

I swear DX fairways go as far as premium plastic drivers half the time.

I believe these were from the first run of glow gazelles around the end of 2010 to 2011. I had two with the dragon chain stamp which were released just before the stamp you are talking about. Any that have stamps dated from 2010 to 2011 should be from this run. They show up from time to time on eBay. They also have patent numbers which the later runs do not.

There is one on eBay right now from the same run stamped for the 2011 European Open. They are asking 29.99 buy it now plus 3.99 shipping though.

That's also a beautiful stamp...but i really liked the one i had more. Those older glo gazelles are nice because they are flatter and fly a little faster, but i really just want the stamp back.

the old glows are flat and just fly. i have a stack of new glows with dome and they are definitely my favorite flex shot.

Are the old CFR Gazelles worth anything? I think I've got one basically mint from that era, one of the first CFR batches. Might be 2001--I'll have to check later. IIRC, those were pretty overstable for Gazelles.

I got a gstar Gazelle earlier this year, and it seems to have finally gotten broken in. OR, I finally figured out the best way to throw it to do that flip into the right place thing that the dx plastic editions of it I have do so well.

It depends on what it is. The Gazelle market has been dead for several years now. There's been a CE one on Ebay for $50 BIN for quite a while. Used to be that it would be bid up past that. Now nobody wants one for more than $30. Pretty awesome for those of us who have bins of the darn things that we've spent hundreds or even thousands on. At least I learned my lesson. Now I have thousands in savings and retirement funds instead .
