they are a little faster,have a little more HSS and have a tad more glide, i compared them exclusively when the gila came out. testing them in both bh and fh shots in heavy wind and no wind,the gila proved to be a great mold and excel a bit in some throws. the wasp has been my choice of mid for a a good while and when the gila came out they were only low 170s but those lighter weights flew nearly identical to my wasp in the bag. a heavier gila is comparable to a fresh old 4pt wasp but just a little beefed up. when my stable wasp cracked, i threw the 172 proto gila back in and its been the perfect replacement. once i break or lose my seasoned wasp,i think i will finish my transition to all gilas or at least gilas replacing wasps.

Thorough AF, thanks much good sir I appreciate this very detailed, analytical comparison.

Well I’ve got an amber and fossil headed my way. I’m surprised I resisted this long because my first thought after throwing my scale and first run serpent was man I want a mid in this fossil plastic.

If they fit the spot I’m looking for as well as I hope, I figured I’ll start with 1 fossil and as needed I’ll add more until I’m not worried about running out anytime soon

Curious about the physical specs (.. yeah... they matter to me, oh well..)

Everywhere I can find them listed they have the Gila at 21.0 cm diameter, which is driver diameter (I notice mids are usually 21.5-21.9). I’ve seen mentioned the Gila is a wide diameter mid, which 21 cm is not. Is it actually a small diameter mid or is the spec wrong?

(Also, they list the max weight just below 175g...)

The gila definitely has my interest regardless! Thanks!

Here's a bigger version of my avatar. Gila is 6th from the left, a little wider than the Wasp on the left, and much wider than the Demons on the right.
For those curious, starting on the left it's: stego, scale, meteor, impact, wasp, GILA, demon, demon, a bunch of drivers.

Not the best comparison, but it's what I had convenient.

Forgot I had this one too, and missed the edit window. They are sitting on a flat block of wood, so a better comparison than the other pic. Same order: Stego, Scale, Meteor, Impact, Wasp, Stego, Demon, Demon, drivers

Hey, thanks for that comparisons are easier than taking out calipers.

So, maybe the spec should be 22.0 cm, not 21.0!

I've been considering it. Along with some other options, I hate even thinking about replacing my wasp but I need a disc that fits that slot that I can do my thing with, well my Philo style thing LOL I like to have all of my molds(which are few) in different plastics and stages of wear. Call me crazy but if Discraft doesn't put out x and esp maybe even JB wasps soon the wasp may be coming out of my bag, maybe the Gila goes in, had my eye on the verdict also.
