I might have a pink buzzz in the closet. Maybe a blue one too. Can double check for you. As for HO Wiz's...none to part with. I have a 2x2 rotation going on for the 4 I have.

On a side note...the Blaze might be one of the best kept secrets on the dg realm. Such a useful disc.

When I was looking for a beefy fairway I auditioned the E Blaze vs. Champ Banshee and found them to be so close. I just happened to get two Banshees that I really liked so they won but it's back to the Blaze once those are gone.

Are the Assassins just shit these days? I loved the disc when I was first starting and was wondering how they be as a turn over fairway.

Also, why no Scout? Is the Mystic just way better?

The FR Assassin's were the bomb. A nice subtle dome to them, flew nice and straight'ish. Now most of them are really domey and don't fly as nice. They still have insane glide, but don't fly the lines like they used to. As for the Scout, it is a good disc, just seemed to overlap with the Karma too much to stay in the bag(I like the little extra fade the Karma has). The Scout and Karma are more comparable in terms of flight than the Scout and the Mystic. The mystic flies straight with very little turn or fade on it. It does break in to a very nice hyzer flip mid.

E blazes are killer. I wish I hadn't lost my last 2.

I would agree. I was talking with them yesterday about the Savage mold and possible tweaks they could make to it to keep it around. It is a nice flying disc when it is a good run. A nice stable to slightly overstable disc. I think they need something between the Blaze and the "Spirit/Illusion/Slayer/Samurai" that has a reliable slightly overstable flight.

I was sponsored by Gateway for 5 years and then took a break from it when they decided to squash the team sponsorship thing. Some of my best tourney rounds were when I was throwing all Gateway. So, I figure what the hell, why not give it a go again as my game has been really lack lust this season and last. So far, the rounds I've put in are up around 30-40 points higher than what I have been shooting the past month or so.

This. I have a couple at my house that go into and out of the bag on occasion. If I could throw better forehand rollers with it I would probably put one in the bag permanently.

I agree with Dave. The Blaze isn't as fast as a Firebird or Xtreme, but it has enough stability to have the same flight pattern when thumb'ed(HPP/E only, the S doesn't thumber very well).

I need to get some E Blazes; the HPP's are nice, but I can't throw forehand rollers with them because they're too flexy.

The Clear'ish HPP Blazes are pretty good, at least the one's that I have had. A fairly firm version of the HPP. The opaque pearly's are a little more gummy.

I like these
Not these
