Gator is one of the least used discs in my bag but I've had the same one for like two years now.

F2 champ beaded gator. So reliable. Hard to lose.

I just got a F2 Metal Flake Gator about a month ago. I don't use it a ton, but when I am in a situation where I need it, it is the only disc i would consider throwing. After my sharks, fuse, and buzzz, my stable/OS mids are a KC Roc, Champ Roc3, and Metal Flake Gator. I got all those about the same time, so they're not beat up at all yet. If something is needed to go left more than a Roc3, I reach straight for my Gator.

I have one coming in about a week, I’ll get back to ya after I compare it to a first run pearly and a ring of gators. I have high hopes for the luster, but so far the ring of gators were the closest I’ve found to the original pearly champs.

im hoping the luster are close to the pearlies as well,those were always my favorite gators to throw. luster would be a whole lot cheaper. i know the pearly recon mortar 1.4(the beadless gator mold) are nice and overstable so i imagine the bead would beef the gator up more in luster champ

Agreed, I have a feeling the flat top lusters are going to be around the stability of the ring of gators. My ring of gators is a brick even more os than my first run champ. I’m hoping the luster is real close to the pearly old ones as well.

I had one of those special Luster Gators. It seemed less blunt if I remember correctly and flew less overstable than my preferred Metal flake Gators.

From innovastore.net: “While these Gators have a flat flight plate, the outside rim is more round than with some of the Champion Gators we’ve seen.”

... “In terms of flight, these Gators have a stiff and relentless fade in low speeds, but in very high speeds they can actually keep a straight flight path fairly long before the powerful fade kicks in. This makes these Gators very versatile for shorter approaches and off the tee.”

So, less stable than regular gators.

Had a ring of gators once that was notably more overstable as well, more so than my metal flake gators.

I am not familiar with this term. Is this like a congregation of alligators?
