That's exactly how I feel. I threw the older mold Elements (as well as the Element X) for 2 years (2006/2007). On a whim, I put some Rocs back in my bag during the Ice Bowl of 2008 and never changed back.

The Element always felt very good in my hand, however. The rounded rim was always comfortable.

The rounded rim feels VERY comfortable. I cant wait to see how I can throw this disc with a regular power grip! Are there any other discd with the rim like this besides the element and the ion?

I have only held them, not thrown. I really like the feel of the rim. If the new AR disc doesnt get approved maybe I will give them a try. Always looking for a goto mid.

I have an evo diamond element and absolutely love it. I don’t have a lot of power, I get it out to about 250-260 on golf lines.

Is there a littler faster version of this disc, around the 7-9 speed range? It flies super straight for me and will flip up from a little hyzer if thrown full power. From an anny it will flatten out at the end or have a small left finish depending on height/power.

Any company welcome and I know gateways lineup is more limited, but man that evo diamond plastic is great.

A Gateway Sabre could be the answer to your question. The problem is at your power level you might not see a big difference in distance. You might want to jump up to a Gateway Assassin.

Sabre was my first thought too based on numbers, but I haven’t thrown one of those. I do agree with a diamond assassin as a solid option. I have a 171-175 (can’t remember exactly) and I’m able to get some decent turn out of it. And that is with me being a noodle arm that usually throws low speed drivers in the 160’s.

I have a bunch of elements that I've gotten in player packs over the years. They are hard to avoid here in STL. I love the way they feel in the hand but they kept slipping out of my hand. Not very sure about the sure grip or whatever they call it. Rocs feel less than optimal in the hand to me but I'm able to hold on to them much better. Go figure.

How is everyone else liking their Elements?

Love the Element, definitely my number 2 favorite from Gateway. I get what you mean. I don't think it has to do with the plastic and more how Gateway molds the rims, they all feel like they want to slip out early.

I could probably drop my Buzzzes and roll with an S Element and a premium and not miss a beat. Great mold.
