I know lots of people love it, but I never liked the Gila. I'm not what you'd consider a power player so maybe that's what it was, but to me, it didn't have the glide I like in midrange (which is also a personal preference).

It doesn't possess a huge amount of glide

Its more of a line drive mid that likes to be thrown low and hard.

It does fight wind really well but it isn't everyone's cup of tea.

My best OS Roc suggestion is the Bard. It has the same flight numbers as the Gila but its a different type of disc. It's faster than a Roc but faster than a Gila. It has a more Roc-like shape as well.

I looked up Gila. If it's more OS than a Gator that wouldn't work for me either.

I saw a Stego this past weekend. I wanted to throw it but it's not mine and we're not touching each others discs atm so I wasn't able to test it out. But I saw it do some weird, funny sh*t when thrown upside down.

Its definitely not a Gator.

Its like a Roc3 but faster, slightly more OS and IMO way better feeling in the hand.

what is the wing shape? The round noses tend to be straight. And they normally have a dome that is shoulder-to-flat.
