If I replace "power" with "to have you go all torque monkey and OAT the crap out of them" is that acceptable?

I’ve never noticed any similarities between my amber Gila and, relatively stable, glow comet. I mean they are both discs...
Maybe you got a mis stamp? Not sure if gateway or RDG makes anything comet like though, element might be the closest and it’s not close ime.

Starting at the original claim, this was my thought unless it's an anamoly. Not that I've spent much time with the Gila, but my Fossils and Ambers were all incredibly high speed stable with a strong fade. Enough that I went back to Rocs because I don't need that beefy of a bookend, and I have QJs for any extra distance the Gila would give me.

I recieved my 179 Pink Amber Gila today.

I understand now what everyone is talking about.

This has excellent HSS, zero turn on a flat drive with a strong LSF.

It is everything I was hoping it would be, and it slotted into the bag immediately.

Meanwhile, the first one I bought is much less stable, it is essentially a beat version of the Pink one.

I inadvertantly created a lot of drama by saying the first one flew like a comet.

I was intending to say nothing other than to say that like a comet it was not particularly overstable, instead it would follow the line you put on it. I should have been more clear on that point.

Overall, the Gila is an excellent disc, I love them both. Good design, great plastic, this mold will be in my bag a long time I suspect.

I also learned something in this process.

Next time I try a new disc I will buy and try 2 before making any judgements.

Even the most carefully controlled process can have an anomoly.

Any chance you want to part with your first one? I'd like to know how these fly when they're worn.

Don't sweat the drama. We don't really have much to talk about so we scrutinize everything...

Lol, I thought about getting rid of it but in reality, over the last few days, I have come to love how this less stable version flies as well.

They have both ended up in the bag for different slots.

I know if I got rid of the yellow one, I would just be working to beat this pink one in.

Btw, I'm also relieved to find it was not my form. All the talk got me concerned. I usually don't battle the oat monster much now days, but I was starting to wonder if my form had slipped, lol

If there wasn't drama, nobody would log in. It wasn't a lot of drama for DGCR, anyway. We can do a lot worse than what happened in this thread.

Is that a challenge?

The Gila is rocking my Faction bag, but I'm still torn for my main bag. I'm just so attached to my mid lineup. The Gila's performance is there, it's just an issue of emotional attachment to my mids.
