Default Chief

I received a Gateway Chief in my RFDO players pack and was looking for more info - what is the deal on these? Not even a thread here on DGCR except for some really old 2009/2010 threads where they were "chiefs" which were wizards in H plastic - definitely not what this is. Are these still protos? Oddly enough these aren't listed on gateway's site but DGCR has a few with this description: "The chief is a low profile putt and approach disc with a bullet shaped nose and a bead on the wing for stability. This disc is basically a wizard with 1/4' of rim depth taken out of the middle. "

This is super shallow & FAF. Slightly more stable than my shield but very similar. I haven't really cranked on it to see how it holds up to drives yet. I'm really liking it so far especially for FH since it is so shallow. May make my bag just for FH putters shots since it feels so natural.

I saw one of these in PIAS last week. It feels awesome in the hand! It was black also, so I passed on it. if they release brighter colors, I'm all over trying one.

Its definitely a different mold than the older one like I have. This one is basically a domey wizard.

Saw the Chief disc stamp. Gotta say I really like the art. Anyone know who does their stamps?

To the op, crank on it man. This thing adores power. It is my go to driving putter and long approach disc. With the shallow rim you can get an excellent power grip on it. It will turn a tiny bit but always comes back in the end with nice reliable fade. It has a bit less glide than my wizards, and I like that for driving. I really want a Chief in evolution platinum plastic
I would buy a stack of ten in a heartbeat.

I got a chief a couple weeks ago and thought about starting a new thread just because I was annoyed that the other one is called New Putter Prototype. Disc threads need the name of the disc in the title, only makes sense. I am sure that this disc was unnamed when the old thread started though.

Agreed on wanting these in more durable plastic. Any idea how long it historically takes gateway to release new discs in other plastics? I may wait to get some other color / plastic choices.

Chiefs have been made in the evo plastic. Not sure if they regular production yet but they have been made. The couple my buddy has aren't as flat as the baseline
