Question Do a lot of people use Gateway besides the Wizard?

I love the wizard, but are the other Gateway discs good as well and does anyone use them? I've been thinking about trying the Assassin and Sabre.

I've thrown the Magic for a few months. It doesn't suck.

Default don't give your friends your gateways

I throw primarily Innova, but am coming to love Gateway more and more. I have liked ever gateway disc I've thrown.
-The magics are my primary putters.
-I used to own an Illusion which I used for backhand drives and tomahawks, and to this day is still my favorite tomahawk disc.
-I've found the assassin to be a great go-to disc for mid->long range drives,
-The sabre is an amazingly straight and predictable driver for me when I used it, I just can never find it to replace the one I lost.
-The Blurr is a more stable Illusion, and can be a great driver, however it is out of production, and my friend decided to shank it into the water hazzard. (He lost my illusion too).
-I am going to be trying the element soon.

I would throw more gateway if I could find them in stores, I might end up buying them online.

The Assassin and Sabre are both great discs.

I also like the Blaze, which is a slow, overstable driver. In S plastic it beats in really well and becomes a very predictable shorter driver and it's readily available in E which is like Champ/Star. It's kind of like a Whippet that comes in better base plastic and always comes in high end plastic.

The Spirit is another of their overstable discs I like. It's really fast and very overstable. It's great for hyzers into headwinds and spike hyzers.

I just switched to the Magics last year, the plastic feels great in my hand and it is as straight as can be.

Voodoos are great putters.
Sabre are really straight if you throw them hard
Elements are a great mid range especially if you like a thin disc.
Assassins are a really nice straight/understable distance driver
A lot of their drivers are pretty overstable

Gateway provides a great alternative to other plastics made

I'm very partial to the Element. On a calm day it's a sweet flying mid. It does get a little squirrelly in the wind though.

For a headwind driver I use an Illusion.

I also have a Sabre but can't seem to get the hang of it.
