Default What's going on with Gateway?

Nikko bolted, Slayer laid an egg, Samurai artwork was done 2 months ago and still no Samurai, resurrected the Scout(?), and it seems only their putters are taken seriously anymore.

I worry about their survival as a viable brand. Can't keep dropping the ball and letting the competition blow by you.

Should I start hoarding SSS magics now!!

Actually I'm not too surprised given their material inconsistency.

Nobody is dropping anything. Why do you say that? I was buying wizards Looooooong before I ever heard of Nikko.

Putters are their $$$ Maker, Drivers are not.

Come on, before the Slayer it was the ninja in 2010. That be it for drivers. No changes in fairway drivers, midrange, or even putters. I'm a fan of gateway, just wondering why they've been sitting pat on new product while Innova, the Swedes, and the Finns are cranking out very very good discs, across the spectrum. Well, maybe not Innova...

Dave M is busy cranking out those putters.
I think he is still looking for the elusive non-putter that's a winner for him.

Drivers used to be heavily in their product mix. Don't tell me they lost that expertise when they parted ways with Quest, LOL. Can they hang around just making 4 different plastic blends of existing putters forever?
