I have thrown one - the shortest, most overstable disc I have ever handled and thrown. it make a zone look like an aviar.

I really wanna try this out. So i hope you guys can get some Fossil action

Seems like a Harp/Berg combo With the glide of a brick. I like the idea
It didn't suite what gateway was going for, not necessarily that they weren't confident in it. The disc is a neat disc, and other than some signature artwork and plastics I don't imagine you will see any changes.

Heh, I remember getting a couple of these from Dave. My feedback to him was "this disc is hilarious...useless... but hilarious". You guys have no idea how overstable and glideless it is until you throw it. I thought the old flat top Spirits were stupid overstable but this is a whole nother level.

this look like it might be so OS that if I were to throw it, it might boomerang around and hit my in the head.

Not a bad idea.

My friends already make fun of me for my eccentric disc choices...and then they always wind up buying the discs I throw, trying and giving them to me. So this is just perfect.

It is alot like throwing a disc upside down with added control. Notroman isn't joking.

It will fill a very niche roll for some (maybe those who throw grenades...)
