It was a run of black wizards from about 3-4 years ago. I call it a galaxy wizard or a lightspeed wizard(Star Wars) because of the look of the white flecks in the black plastic. I know they have tried to run some like this in the past year or so, but they were never the same. These babies were table top flat across the top.

It looks kind of like this one only with the small Gateway proto stamp in the middle.:

Those are sweet. I love the ones that came out late 06 with the proto stamp. Those are #3 on my list of best ran wizards.

I like to carry a disc that is meant only for rolling. My Avenger SS is flippier than the apache, so it's only useable feature is for rolling. The Apache is way flippy, but I can still throw it for air shots and not have it turn and burn like the avenger ss would.

On a side note, I have a couple of Z-Trackers on the way(1 domey, 1 Not-so-domey), so my bag may change again in the upcoming week. I may switch out the TB, Apache string for 2 Z-Trackers and 2 XL's. I have to see if the domey Tracker is as stable to slightly overstable as my TB.

My non clear E 169 Apache fade about the same or minisculely more than a Champ Leo but is much more HSS. Being faster Apache goes a lot farther. On good days I pass 400' with wide rimmed discs. Come summer and being able to throw Katanas for the first time well is gonna improve my golf D and max D. Based on throwing from a little snow at 30 F. The Apache I have flips consistently and ain't way flippy. Gateway consistency or form I don't know? I haven't thrown an XL but ain't it almost identical to a Leo? If so it's more flippy than my Apache. Maybe you should try an opaque E Apache for non super flippy straight flight and then decide if that mold is a must ditch one. Mine is firm not soft like my CE Wizard.

Then again it may be a form issue or non compatibility issue. Only one disc works differently for me than the majority of throwers based on hearsay. That's a QJLS and a broken in JLS.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I'm not sure you need that in your bag...you should probably give it to me so I can test it out for you :mrgreen:

That looks like a pretty solid setup although I might add some sort of flippy fairway driver to the mix <Leopard, XL>

That is what the 9x and the SE are for. They have some wear on them so they will definitely turn over and won't come back. The TB's range in stability from overstable to understable.

Yes they do. My SE works great for those nice easy hyzer flip overs. I can throw this thing out to the left with some hyzer and it will turn over and come back right every time. This disc works great for stand still shots as well.
