You should get a review in of the Karma, that one was released around the same time as the Mystic and is possibly their best mid. Also it would be cool to see someone give an opinion on that new retooled Assassin and that newer premium plastic they ran it in.

It kinda was. I think they changed up the underside a little? I may be way off base, but I had both at one point and they were very similar, but not the same. The rim of the Element-X was more squared, and the Karma was a little more slanty (to use technical terms). The Karma also a little higher shoulder maybe? Or maybe it was just a little more dome? Either way, my Element-X was board flat, and the Karma a little domey. The Karma had more LSS and both were HSS.

I think the Gateway mids (I tried) are the best.

For cycling
You can use the Warrior or even Karma in Sure Grip plastic.
Both start out a little overstable (Warrior more than Karma) and break in to a straight, glidey mid. Perfect disc to cycle, like e.g. Roc.

For on mid in every stability
Get an Element for the understable part of the spectrum to complement the Warrior/Karma and youre good to go.

Warrior, Karma and Element feels very close to gripwise and you develop consistency with these mids. Win/win anyhow you look at it.

Gateways mids are so underrated!

Okay the mystic must be insanely flippy if it is turning that much at elevation.

Curious if they got a dud, I have bagged a few Mystics and they all flew in the Cobra/Comet range, got some flip but not like a Stingray or Meteor.

It's possible, the one I have is very VERY domey. But I like it for flips.

4.48 in I throw it on a pretty big hyzer and you see it flip up hard core.

Gateway mids are pretty big in diameter and the rims are pretty beefy. They are fairly unique in design for being mids. If you are a traditional Roc/Buzzz-type player they are kinda funky in the hand. That probably accounts for some of the reason you don't see them much.
