Gateway Disc Sports
G2i - Apache

Type: Driver
Diameter: 21.0cm
Available Weights: 140-175g
Plastic: Thermoplastic Urethane

Apache
Flight Rating Category Value What Gateway says:
The Apache is very similar to the Sabre in stability. The disc has a little more of a dome to it, which gives it more glide at the end of the flight. Being able to throw this disc left to right (for right-handers) makes this a good choice for your first driver. The unique blend of plastic (see plastic for discs on our website) makes this disc extra durable. Most of my competitors beginner discs are made of inexpensive plastic and are usually worn out by the time you learn how to throw it. The Apache will keep its shape and original flight characteristic for a long time.

My Review:
Gateway's G2i Apache is a fast, small diameter slightly understable driver. This disc is molded in plastic that is stiff, smooth, grippy, and durable and has a very high dome and deep rim. The G2i's flight is similar to that of the G1i - Sabre, but slower and slightly more understable but with more glide. Thrown flat, the G2i will fly straight or give a very gradual right turn for those with a lot of power, similar to a Leopard. Thrown anhyzer, the G2i will hold a right curve for its entire flight without fading to the left or turning too much and rolling. Thrown hyzer, this disc really shines. Given a hyzer line, the G2i will flatten and fly dead straight for 85-95% of its flight before finishing with very minimal, yet predictable fade. This is a very accurate disc and easy to control for players of almost any power level. While the G2i might not have the distance of some of the max D discs on the market, it is definitely one of the straighter flyers on the market. This disc is a good choice for beginners and players that throw with hyzer tendency.

The Apache is made by Gateway Disc Sports. The disc seems to be harder mold than an Innova disc, which makes it more resistant to tree damage, but I had a hard time getting used to it. The Apache has more dome than the Sabre. It flies similar to the Sabre but with much more glide in the fade portion of flight. I felt that it flew very much like a KC Pro Teebird, but I could not throw it quite as far as a KC Pro Teebird.
