Love the look and feel of the newer pinnacle plastics. Hope the Gauge gets released in pinnacle right off. I'm impatient.
I second that thought.

Yes on the Patriot/Rival are great but I don't know what plastic you tried in the mids/putters, IMO the protege plastic is very good in the Clozer and Clutch putters. The Icon Ghosts are money, and I can't wait until the next mid-range comes out.

I love the patiot/rival and cannon for wide open shots but I will have to say the ghost is not what I expected. I bought a first run pinnacle and haven't thrown it yet, however the excel plastic ghost is not as overstable as I had hoped. It flies really similar to my Z comet with more fade when it dies out. I am hoping the pinnacle is a little more os. But damn it has crazy glide!

That's what I love about the Ghost. The blue pinnacle is definitely more HSS. I also have a puddle top pinnacle peach Ghost that is now my favorite understable Mid. When I moved to elevation I stopped throwing my buzzzes as they didn't power down how I liked it. The Anode took over my 200-300' shot

i've felt them all up shamelessly, but they just don't feel good in my hand in terms of profile and shape.

Yea I agree it is a pretty nice mid, but I bought it to replace my wasp I threw in the water, not what I expected based on the flight numbers. But damn that pinnacle plastic feels great! I am curious to see what these new drivers/mid are going to be. Any info on release dates?

I know what you mean as I wanted it to replace my vector. Though a beefy Icon may do that.. especially since I have a hornet.

What are the other two discs besides the gauge? Bandit and Mongoose? Pair of 9 speeds?

From your signature, you throw a vector, and I think the Pinnacle Ghosts feel really similar.
