Review: I bought this disc at thEbay, it is a Speed Demon in a champion or Z plastic. The disc is very similiar to a flick but with a bit more dome. The nose is sharp and fat, with a bead on the wing. Easily the most overstable thing out there. Champ whippet, monster, firebird, predator, none of these are even close to being as stable as this hog. This is not a 400+ disc, I throw real hard, I can "crush" discs over 450ft on a b line....this disc max could get 450ft full out anhyzer downhill in a hurricane with the wind at your back 30 ft run up 360etc, it starts fading at 60% of its flight path-it hyzers with extreme prejudice. I compare it to a firebird a lot, it makes the firebird seem like a glider, this disc makes you appreciate how much glide a firebird has. Crazy stable!

Review: New and not broken-in, this disc would not be useable for beginners. It is extremely over stable. I use it strictly as a utility disc, primarily for extreme "S" turns (I can release this thing at a roller angle into a headwind with full power and can count on it turning all the way back and skipping). As a utility disc, it is a necessary component of my arsenal (I typically carry 18 to 20 discs).

This is one of my favorite drivers. the plastic is very durable. When new this disc is very overstable and has a lot of speed, even in the wind. As it breaks it, it will go straight without turning over. New i use it for long hyzer spikes and skip shots As it wears in i use it for straight drives. To me it is faster and more overstable than a firebird. This disc in S plastic is ultra flat, and in the others has a slight dome.

The Speed Demon is an ultra-fast, very overstable driver. It is great for sidearm, overhand, and throwing into a heavy headwind. It also becomes a great distance disc when beat up. This disc is made out of Gateway's H plastic, making it more durable than some of their other discs.
