Default Gateway element

I just grabbed a set of discs from gateway direct so I could finally get my evo magic. Well I got an xout evo element and I really like the feel of this disc. Still have to wait bout a week to throw, but doo any of you guys like these. I love how the ring is rounded like an ion. Those are the only two discs I have seen like this. I can never seem to get a power grip to workon mids or putters, but this thing feels fine with a power grip(so did the ion). I know its not going to push my rocs out of my bag. But does anyone else like the feel of the rounded off rim on these type of discs?

I do think that Elements feel pretty good in the hand. Element-X's did as well. I threw both for a while but ended up on Rocs because they fly better.

I've been an Element fan for a long time now. I carry a 150 and a 165 both in S plastic. The only thing I have against them is that in lighter weights they just don't handle wind very well.

Element is a great disc and bag worthy.

I throw glow elements as my main midrange disc. I probably throw it more than any other disc in my bag because they are so controllable for me and fly great. I find them very comfortable in my hand, and I love the feel of the glow plastic. A great disc for sure.

Elements are cool, but I agree with Garu above. Well said. Rocs are more predictable.

Well like I said, the roc isnt leaving my bag, EVER. I just got an element in a xout pack and it feels really mice in the hand. I dont know if it can do anything my roc cant. Bc my rocs can do everything. Well see how I feel about it once I can get out and throw it.
