I might need to try the more stable one...not that the star is severely lacking or anything.

Fantastic disc. Put as much arm behind it as you want, it's like a damn baseball.

Terrific disk. I have one in DX plastic and it's very reliable. Predictable flight regardless of the wind. It's also my favorite disk for a hammer/thumber out of the rough

For a mid-range I love the smaller diameter and you can throw it as hard as you want without it turning over.

My thread delivers.

Where was this fanfare before?

I love my DX gator. No frills, no tricks, just a good stable midrange.

If you take a pig and a gator to an open field and throw them as hard as you can they will consistently land within five feet of each other. Different disc, different class, identical flight characteristics. I don't like either one because they don't glide good enough.

I had a couple Star Gators. I felt like I had to throw them really hard to get any distance on them, and they dumped off the line really quick. I prefer the Drone, just a bit more glide, but overstable enough. Seems to fade out a bit smoother.

Ah but the beauty is that they don't glide well. It's very difficult for them to overshoot the pin.

Is one of yours the one I am ranting about? I can never remember who I traded with, there are so many.
