Default ABC and 1-2-3 new discs

New manufacturer ABC Discs out of Illinois has introduced two PDGA Approved discs - the Money and the Gamma Ray. Gateway has reintroduced the PDGA Approved new Warrior which is the retooled Element X.

Ok, so I was just looking at the approved disc list, and it doesn't say anything about a larger diameter Gateway Warrior, or a (retooled) Element-X. Did the new Warrior go back to unapproved status? Or does it's approval now fall under the Element-X's approval?

I know nothing more than what was posted above last April in terms of what Gateway did to turn the Element X mold into the new Warrior.

The thing is I want to think the approved disc list had at or about the time of the OP, a listing for the "new Warrioir, re-tooled Element-X", (or something to that effect) which is not on there now. Interesting, very interesting. Does anyone know anything? Anyone have a link to the approved disc list from the time of the OP?

I just checked with Homburg and somehow the old and new Warrior listings didn't carry forward on the Approved list since last April. They will be added back in the next day or two when another Gateway disc completes its approval.

DISC MODEL Max. Wt. (g) Diameter (cm) Height (cm) Rim Depth (cm) Inside Rim Diameter (cm) Rim Thickness (cm) Rim Depth/ Diam. Ratio (%) Rim Config. Flexibility (kg)
Warrior (old) 174.3 21.0 2.1 1.2 17.6 1.7 5.7 33.50 11.79
Warrior (new) 182.6 22.0 1.9 1.2 19.3 1.4 5.5 42.50 4.76
