For you Gateway throwers out there. These might be the best distance driver Gateway has ever produced. If you can track any of these down, I highly recommend picking one up. I asked Double D @ the GDS shop about this plastic mix and he said that it was a limited batch. I have already stockpiled a few of these bad boys for myself. I am begging and pleading with DaveMac to make this the plastic mix their defacto E/HPP mix, as it is the bomb. Would love to see a Samurai in this mix.

I've been throwing a green one like you have in the picture and it's been pretty good, it weighs 175 and has a slight dome.
( I didn't like the really flat ones)When I throw it hard and flat it has a slight turn and a moderate fade. I do really like the feel of the plastic, it's stiff with some grip. My distance driver of choice has been pro Destroyers and both the Samurai and Slayer are slightly longer with the Samurai having about the same flight path of the pro Destroyer and the Slayer being more HSS.

I carry two slayer's and two samurai's. The Slayers are my straight'sih to slightly overstable drivers and the samurai's are my understable distance drivers. From the feel of this particular plastic mix, it should hold up for quite some time. I really think a Samurai in this mix would be the shiznit.

Are the Slayers that are marked first run the same plastic as the Samurais? The onlyGateway stuff I see locally are putters. :|

I don't know for sure, but I would dare to say no. The first run Slayers that I had were a bit more brittle than the current runs of Samurai plastic.

The Gateway FB page has some new Apaches that look like the same plastic, if you throw Apaches they sound like they would be nice.

Already have one of those apache's. And they are correct...a bit more resistant to turn than previous runs of apache's.

I don't throw Apaches but the plastic looks good. I'm going to get another Slayer so I can work on them in the the field, I'm going to go with Slayer and Samurai for awhile as my high speed drivers.

I would put the slayer/samurai combo up against any other high speed driver combo from any other manufacturer in the market right now.

As for the apache, it is a pretty versatile mold...especially in the this new plastic. When thrown flat, it will fly straight and then have a gentle fade out. To me it is what a Teebird mashed together with a Wraith would be. It powers down nicely without losing the forward penetration, so it will glide down to finish instead of just dumping out and to the ground. I think if this is going to be the mix that they are going to go with for future runs, then I would adjust the flight numbers a little bit. On the Innova scale, I would go 9/6/-.5/+1.5.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the Assassin will make a triumphant return to normal production in the upcoming months. And hopefully it won't be the super domey version or the pancake flat version. I want them to be similar in nature to the first runs.

In the field I am getting the same flight pattern with my Slayer/ Samurai combo as I am with champion Destroyer/ pro Destroyer combo just a little longer and a little more forgiving. I might pick up a lighter Slayer and see how it works, maybe I could just go all Slayers.
Is Gateway able to make the Assassin or the Diablo Dt out of regular Evolution plastic? I really like both of those molds but have never been a fan of the plastic.

To my understanding the Assassin and Diablo have to be ran in the E plastic that is similar to elite-x style because of the weighting issues. The slayer may work its way to my primary distance driver once I get one worked in a little bit more. It is sneaky long.

As for lighter slayers, I have seen them in 130g weights even :D

The picture of the new run of Apaches on the Facebook page is really nice.
