Default Gateway Warrior

I'm currently on the hunt for an overstable middy and the Gateway Warrior in HPP has caught my eye. Does anyone throw them, how do you like them, do the preform for you, and also how does the HPP plastic hold up? I don't necessarily like the drone or the gator, but any other suggestions would be welcomed as well. I throw a flx and z buzzz and also an impact for certain shots, as far as my midrange game is concerned.

The HPP E Warriors I had started out pretty beefy but broke in really quickly. They were still a good "straight flight with some fade" disc but not quite as overstable as I was looking for when they beat in. They are not nearly Drone/Gator overstable, the Gateway disc for that is the Demon.

So it kinda depends on how overstable you want.

I throw a Sure Grip Warrior, 176g, I think. It's a fairly straight flier. It's a little more stable than my R-Wood Pro Ontario Roc, not as much turn, and a little more fade, with maybe a little less glide. I'm gonna put an E HPP one in my bag at some point, but as of yet I've never thrown one in that plastic. I also have a Demon in Sure Grip, and it is the meat hook it is advertised to be. I like the grip on the Sure Grip plastic, and so far it seems to be fairly durable.

well thanks y'all, and from what i've read here it seems as if i'll prob try out the demon since the warrior is more of a straight flyer and i already own 2 buzzzes. more input is still welcome though

I have a 182 HPP Warrior I am hoping to try today, my Core is 171 and Stingray is 167 so hoping the weights also add exageration to the stability.

its 20 degrees and just hoping I hear back from a friend that he wants to go. Dont think I will go by myself as it seems kinda boring to me that way, although since I havent got out for so long, I would be tempted.

Beggars cant be choosers

The HPP Warriors are great. Big and flat with a unique rim that allows for an easy four finger grip. The Plastic is great. I have a gummy HPP and a stiff HPP much liek champ glow plastic. They are very straight with a decent amount of predictable fade at the end of flight. Not nearly as beefy and overstable as a drone/gator. A Demon will fit that bill better if you are looking to stick with Gateway plastic.

I carry 2. They beat in nicely, but if you're looking for a truly overstable-and-stay-that-way midrange, try the demon/drone/gator.

Bikinjack showed me a Warrior yesterday and that thing is huge! Looks like it could double as a freaking spaceship in an alien movie. Do the trees fall when you guys hit them with that?

No they just bow down at the mere mention of the mighty Warrior.
