Review: I purchased this disc at a tournament becuase I had heard some good things about it. On the first throw I realized that Gateways stabilty ratings are a bit off. For anyone with any power this is going to be a turnover disc. If I rip it at full power without putting a good bit of hyzer on it the disc quickly turns over and takes off rolling. Also, the E plastic is nothing like the durablilty of champion, star, ESP, or Z plastic like gateway tries to claim. It is at best as durable as elite X plastic. This disc can add some distance if you are an average thrower, but I found it very unpredictable. It also is horrible in the wind. Any head or side wind and you might as well leave it in the car.

Review: The last guy to post was on something IMO. Everyone I know thinks that the Inferno is great for people with slower arm speed as well as bigger arms when thrown at 70% power. The disc is not overstable and is great for big anhyzers as well as 70% power shots that will CRUISE down a tunnel on a perfectly straight line.

Review: First off, this disc is not for beginners. The Inferno requires a strong arm. As soon as the Inferno loses speed it will break out of its glide and take a hard left plunge to the ground. Also note, this disc is TERRIBLE in the wind. It is an overstable disc that becomes more so the slower it is thrown, which can be a good and a bad thing. The disc can come in some pretty high weight classes. I would recommend no more than 172. My 176 is quite a workout. When i first got the disc i could not throw it. It took me about 5 outings of throwing my arm out until i could control it. The Inferno shines when it has as much speed as u can put into it. The disc needs to be released at an angle that negates its natural overstablity. I got used to throwing like this by leaning way back as i released it. The disc is known for its huge distance, but it cannot achieve this flying in a straight line. The Inferno is the GOD of the S-curve. Its perfect for long open drives, and weaving around obstacles. A great tool for any experienced player, not much benefit for a beginner.

Review: Before I got an Inferno, I used a Spectra. I had been looking for the perfect max D driver for awile. When I first started, I used a dragon, but it was too slow. Then I tried a: Dx Wraith, Z Flash, Esp Surge, and then the Spectra, but all of them just didn't work for me. I found the Inferno while browsing on gdstours.com. When I heard the Pros talk about it, I was amazed! I thought to myself "I have to get one!". Then I got one last week and it was awsome! It added 40' right away. The Inferno has the speed and glide of the Wraith with the straight flying performence of the TL. It is a disc that can be used by both Beginners and Pros.

Review: Gateways new Inferno has been well recieved by good players. I have got one of the earlier runs. It is marked Gateway/Quest prototype as the stamp. The disc fits nicely in my hand, even though my hands are on the small side. The flightplate feels very thing and flexible. I usually throw teebirds around 290-310. The Inferno goes between 340-360 for me. You dont need to throw it very fast. I usually release it with a slight hyzer and it will flip to flat and tracks very sligthly right before fading very slightly left. The great thing distance wise with this disc is that it has very little lateral fade. It seems that the disc fades mostly forward. The plastic added with the "watermarks" that are on the edge of the disc help with grip. As far as durablity is concerned it seems to wear slowly. But again I havent had the disc for that long and I only use it for open holes. So I dont know how it takes treehits. It flies much longer than the previously mentioned DX Tbird, but also I throw ProD Cyclones and X Avengers. These all go rather similar distances for me. With the cyclones going smidgin shorter.

Review: I recently purchased a brand new Inferno from Dave McCormick himself. He was sponsoring a tournament I was playing in, and he allowed me to throw the new Inferno driver. I loved it at first and bought it immediately. The next day I was throwing in my backyard and this disc does not hold up at all in the wind and flipped over into ground very easily. Like the Quarter K, you smack something and its done. This disc was such a waste of $10.

Review: I have neglected posting any reviews lately because I spend so much time on the fourm, but thought I should talk up some of the discs that have been changing my game: The new addition to gateways high speed driver line is something different. The E inferno is not really E plastic, its somewhere between E and H (or innova comparison between Star and Pro), so its not as durable as most E plastic discs. (I do hear David M is going to run them in regualar E soon) Stability is alittle less than a wraith. For me the rim is easier to grip than any other wide rim driver due to the sof t curved inner rim. But whats most amazing about this disc is it comes out of its turn into the fade much more gently and later than any driver of its speed (11+). Its pretty controlable for a Max D Driver, w/ some hyzer you can toss it on a straight line, but its best for long gentle S shots for max D. I really only throw it when I need a high distance line, such as over trees, or max D in an open field. It yields about 40-50' more distance over my SOLF and about 25-30' over my SOLS. (or a touch longer than a wraith, or 30' longer than an avenger on a golf line)

Review: Great disc, saw on a website decided to give it a shot. Its very easy to throw, different type of design, extremely hard edges, soft plastic in the middle. Its very easy to put this disc on a line and watch it hit it dead on. Another plus is its very hard to turn over. Only downside is its probably not going to give you the longest throw I can put it at 300-310' but it will be the straightest driver you've ever thrown. I believe you can get 400-425' out of this disc with a perfect throw.

Review: This thing is Fast and glides like crazy. I will tell you that it is weird though. You have to let it go at like a 45 degree angle or it flips off to the right big time. But if you get a hold of this thing it will fly probably 10-20 metres past your usual drive. A real course shortener.
