Default The Assassin is Back!

So on gateways shelf now, and I believe they said they are selling some on auction as well is the Assassin Again! The plastic is great, maybe GL ish, but softer. Or somewhere between G* and star.




Here is a pic of the new swirly blue, A red first run, and a yellow mid production run.


Next is a picture of the 1R vs Mid run


1R vs new release

The new release seems to be somewhere between the 1R and Mid release in dome and PLH. Sadly I haven't gotten a chance to throw it yet, but I expect it to fall right in between the two.

Why does this have a Dynamic tag?

So I have had a chance to throw these some. I find them similar to the later runs of Assassin in feel, but closer to the first runs in flight. Maybe a tick less stable. Excellent glide, and very workable. Now the question is what is the stamp going to look like...

Very nice discs. Super straight. Fly for me like a fresh beast. Light turn and light fade.
RDG has some sick ones in stock

I never saw yellow or orange first runs only the red, but yes they are glidey like the yellow or orange ones of later runs.

The first time I threw it, I parked 8A at Lenora Park DGC (400'). I really want some more of these discs.
I buy these direct from gateway, but I am local. Other than collectors sites has anybody else seen them around?
