I love how long it is for an OS mid. Straight & far with a strong finish.

I’m with you there. It’s a great disc, and if I bought two more it could easily be my main mid.

But, the Bard with the first mid that I really clicked with to this extent and it just feels so good in hand to me.

Gilas are amazing, but not quite ITB. Though if something like an RDG sponsor deal or something was offered my game would 100% not suffer.

The Bard was my favorite mid (other than the Roc) until the Gila was created...

Fossil Gilas > Crappy BTs Bards

But I understand where you're coming from. The Bard is a great mold. It is weird how the Roc, Bard & Gila are seemingly faster, more OS versions of the prior.


On a side note, I think my favorite Gila right now is my 174g new run Amber. It is straight enough to get an easy 300+ out of but has that reliable bite to bring it around a corner or fight a headwind. It is filling the spot that I usually use a blue proto for as they were just a smidge less OS than the previous, firm run of Amber.

I have one of those firm ambers and it's MF MONEY!! I will put it in the bag on windy days or when a course calls for a lot of forehand mid shots. Great disc I'm not sold on the speed 5 though, my sample size is small as I've only thrown the one Ihave (minimally) but it feels faster, I swear I threw it once and my Palm was smoking.

Almost had my first Gila ace today 228' hole finishing strong left.
Looked like i ticked the front edge of the basket and dropped. Disc ended up 1 ft front & left of the basket.

Nice disc!

Dave surprised us the other day with an amazing run of Armor Gilas.

They're board flat, fast & super reliable.
Plastic is firm but grippy. Kinda similar to my Color Glow Thunderbird.



You all know that this mold was my holy grail when developing discs & this run really epitomizes that.

I'd say these came out a touch more OS than the soft Amber run we had last.

Hoping to stamp next week and get these into your hands!

New stamp on the new batch of Armor Gilas is up now on the site!

Use promo code DGCR for 10% off your order.

Also!

Use promo code freeship40 if you spend over $40 for free shipping!

These Gilas are insanely flat, super fast and have the characteristic stability for all Gilas.

Just got one of these for a steal on Facebook. This is a mold I have been curious for a long while. I am hoping for a harder biting compliment to my kaxe. Is there going to be room in my bag for a Gila?
