they are okay but i think it really is up to how you play and how far you throw.

Comets are amazing discs but i like to power up discs. so buzzzzes off the tee for me.

i have a few in the market place but both are evo.

With mid-ranges max d would be more or less 200'. I would rather have control than distance.

If you are going to get an Element, I would recommend upgrading to the E-Series high performance plastic. I ordered 20 of them for players pack items at one of my tournaments, and I received a lot of positive feedback about the disc.

I primarily use mine for dead-straight approach shots or longer anhyzer lines. Tends to be a bit more understable. If you're looking for a more overstable mid from Gateway, the Karma is a good choice.

They'll fly like a beat up buzzz out of the box. power up well and will hold a turn to the ground without all the roll out you get from some discs .. they are a bit sensitive to OAT when powered up though. Tehy power down ok as well flying like a buzzz with a nice straight flight before fading out a bit at the end. I use the S-line as it wears in to the perfect flight path fast and stays there for a LONG time. The evo plastic is good too but tends to stay more on the stable side for a long time and doesn't power down as well.

Gateway has built a solid mid range lineup that tends to go overlooked and under-rated... it's their drivers department that is sub-par.

True enough the elements ok the element x is better and well the warrior would be legendary if people would throw it, much like a more controllable wasp for real people should try it gateway plastic is best in s or the original evolution not the champ like hpp evo plastic in my opinion
