I threw the drone for a long time and I still think that it is great but switched to the gator because it is shorter and used in situations where I dont want to overthrow. The drone is def more OS and longer but I am powering down a driver in strong winds when the gator cant hang.

I use the drone for longer flex shots and headwind hyzers. The gator for shorter approaches/skip shots and short putts that have to dive left

They kind of fall into different categories. In the past I have thrown both but now i throw neither. i would put a gator in my bag before i put a drone in. I think the gator is more usable however if you are looking for something that is dumb OS and flies shorter than all other mids in your bag then definatly go drone.

I like the gator because I find it more consistent than a drone. Gators have no glide so once you get a feel for the disc it is extremely easy to predict- It goes exactly as far as you throw it and fades only as much as you let it. I definitely can't throw it as far as a drone, but I find it a little more useful.

I throw a Glow Gator and used to throw an LE Z and FLX Drone. I assume star gators are a little less stable than the one I have.

Unrelated to drone vs gator. But champ gators are way more overstable than the star. Champ gators are absolute beef.
Honestly, there isnt even a good comparison between the star and champ, they are completely different.

For the record Star Gators are not Gators, just bastard step children. Champ Gators FTW!

Edit: ^^Beat me to it.

Star Gators are good wind putters but are not real Gators. I went with Drone because Gators don't feel good (to me) as a flick disc.
