Stopping in to say the Gila is our best disc

My favorite disc ever made. It holds up to my low line drive play style so well.


But the Scale & Serpent will always hold a special place.

The joy of taking protos of each into the back parking lot of Gateway and seeing that the molds flew EXACTLY how we wanted....it was pretty awesome.

Its an interesting relic, has the Dom Lotus stamp. Its a misprint with black/silver/green stamps stacked and very interesting. I havent bagged it in some time, but since its such an oddity Ill probably hold onto it.

I have a triple stamp Armor Scale and of I ever stopped bagging it I still dont think I could ever part with it so I know the feeling.

I offically agree now. I have actually dumped my kaxe and buzzz OS

I was toying the idea for a bit and was using just a Fossil to try breaking in. Hard to do on the grassy lush home course.
THEN I played Redfeather and Kiss the Sky and used it for my OS mid through those 5 tourney rounds. All the rocks ate it up, and when I got back down to a normal elevation it was flying straight with a solid fade. Like my old sentinels or good wasps I have cycled in the past.

I am seriously in love with the Gila now. I have put another Fossil in the bag and cannot wait to put my armor one (that I initially was testing) as the bookend to my cycled Fossils.

The mold was a modified Essential Discs Honey ran to produce a large flash/bead

Larry Leonardi pulled the Honey mold from Gateway to attempt to run it elsewhere...

And just like that... The Sobek was gone.

Great disc. Found the Quake from DGA to be similar but more consistent, however.

Sad story, great disc. I only have one fresh honey left so I guess its time to move on.

Yep. Nice concave wing with a substantial bead.

It looks super beefy but in reality it's just a killer straight to fade mid.

Heading out now for a round with a dominant mid lineup:.
- Armor Gila
- Fossil Gila
- Diamond Prophecy
- Diamond Mystic

All fast, glidey discs that I can add bend to my will.
