Gateway says this about the Slayer: "The Gateway Slayer has the stability of a long range driver — which is the ability to flip up a little but enough resistance to turn not to flip too much — followed by a long glide pattern with lots of penetration and a predictable slow fade at the end. The Slayer has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews so far by players who’ve had the chance to throw it."
The velocity required to reach a disc's optimal flight path. Range: 1 to 15.
The measure of lift generated by a disc to stay aloft. Range: 1 to 7.
The velocity, relative to the speed of the disc, required to cause the disc to turn with the direction of spin. Range: +1 to -5.
The low-velocity stability that causes a disc to hook at the end of its flight. Range: 0 to 5.
PDGA Disc Specifications
Phases of Flight
|As the disc slows and spin decreases, the disc pulls out of turn and begins to hook at the end of flight|
|The aerodynamic profile turns the disc with the direction of spin during the high-speed phase of flight|
|The initial thrust forward during the high-speed phase of flight|
