I'm really bad, I've never even bothered to look at a Karma or Mystic. Do they have that same inner rim like the Warrior? That inner rim never bothered me, but I know people who hate it. The Prophecy has a more standard inner rim, which might be more comfortable to a lot of players.

Yes, all Gateway mids shared that wide radius inner rim. It's a love/hate type deal for many. According to Dave, the shape of that inner rim actually does affect the flight.

Anyway, they are starting to release mids with a sharp radius inner rim (like most people are used to) again, including Elements. I threw some of the Elements with the new inner rim and they seemed to fly more stable with a more forward penetrating fade. I kinda want more of those.

I used to throw the heck out of Demons. They would beat up and be less stable. Now its more of a specialty shot disc for me and use the Prophecy . The diamond Demon is super stable

I bag a diamond demon and use it quite a bit since it’s common to have 15+ mph winds. I see the prohpecy taking some shots away from the demon, but still plan to start off the season bagging both.

I’m glad Gateway adjusted their numbering system. No more glide 10’s, and more aligns with Innova’s scale. Gateway also put out an updated flight chart of all their discs and explanation of their plastics.

The Prophecy is a great mold.

If I preferred premium plastic mids, I would bag an Amber Gila & Diamond Prophecy for a great one-two punch.

Instead I carry several Fossil Gila which season into Prophecy like flight.

I’m curious if these are purchasable anywhere or if they are still in the midst of getting distributed to retailers?

I’m very intrigued. Reminiscent of the EMac Truth, maybe a bit longer and domier (?) The 5-5-0-2 mid flight has been my favorite for a long while. I’d try one.
