New Gateway S Plastic?

Postby Aaron_D » Mon May 22, 2006 9:16 pm

I just got the 5 wizard deal and got 3 supersofts (lame since I requested no supersofts :roll: ) but I also got 2 med S wizards...the thing is...the plastic feels A LOT like the supersoft plastic...and nothing like my 2 other med S platic wizards. All I can say is this run of S plastic wizards is slick / rubbery and not nearly as nice as the old plastic coming off the hand...its stiffer too and the bead has a thin strip of excess plastic going all the way around it presumably from the mold.

i believe the plastic variations came out from the plastic manufacturers as both discraft D and gateway's s plastic came out slick with a few batches.

that's always been gateway's achilles heel... variations in plastic, runs, cooling, etc.

trick is to call them and place the order and demand that they be grippy :P

btw, according to justin at gateway the slick ones get grippy after they get a little scuffed on the bottom.

I called and said "No supersofts". I got 3 and 2 that might as well be.
