Default Your thoughts on the Innova Gator?

I just bought one because I loved the feel of the disc in my hand. I have yet to throw it but what is everybody's reaction to it? It doesn't seem to garnish much fanfare...

Not just Yay, EFFIN YAY!

Love the hell out of it, and it is an awesome wind putter too.

Note I have the star gator which is different than a regular one.

I like the Gator in DX for forehand approaches. The DX is more stable cause it has the bead where the Star version is beadless.

I am going to copy and paste from DGR...again.

The best way I can explain it is like this: I try to imagine throwing a ball, or rock, or something with no glide, toward the basket. To me, a midrange with a lot of glide will tend to carry too far beyond the basket, and will probably skip 10-20 feet past where it initally hits the ground. I just throw the gator exactly how hard I think I should throw a ball, and the distance is almost always perfect.

I had one when I first started & didn't care for it very much. Perhaps it's time to check one out again.

Default CFR Gator

I have a CFR Gator, which is the beaded version in Champ plastic. It is the only variety of Gator I have thrown, and I love it. It's been in my bag for over a year and is nearly as stable as the day I bought it. Money for windy approaches that don't need quite the distance of an overstable midrange, forehand approaches (as mentioned previously in another post), and out of trouble shots. I've been meaning to get a few more for backups but mine never seems to beat in so I have very little motivation (similar to the CE plastic dilemma ).
