Default Checking the existence of a run of Gateway plastic

So I once had a red SSS Magic that was so grippy that it was literally sticky. Better yet, whenever it hit metal, it left behind red plastic, and you could see the dent/spot on the disc afterwards. After about 30 or so hits into the pole/chains, the disc had a "hammered" look around the rim.

My practice basket still has spots of red on its pole, cage, and chains. When I foolishly sold off most of my Wizards and almost all of my non-Ridge putters, I sold this Magic off too.

Has anybody else ever run into this type of plastic from Gateway? I just wanted to see if it existed before trying to find some Wizards and Magics in that sort of plastic or if my disc was somehow just an unique disc (wouldn't surprise me, as I've had a bunch of other SSS plastic discs and none of them had the same characteristics, although I did run into some SSSS floppy "burrito soft" Wizards that I also regret selling off).

Anybody? Bueller?

I have a SS red Magic that leaves red marks everywhere it hits. Couldn't putt with that one indoors.

I've had a lot of those red Gateway discs. I imagine they would be losing 1-2 grams a year if used as your main putter. As much as I tried not to let this stuff bother me, it did. It would take a blade to take chunks out of my current putter (med. Ion).

Ever had the same characteristics in any other color? I fired off an email to Gateway to see if they had any Magics or Wizards in that red plastic lying around - can't help myself, I just happened to love that plastic. Don't mind if it actually loses weight since I wouldn't be using them as my main putter.

Thanks for the confirmation, BroD and discspeed!
