Vote right now on the name for the new prototype driver!

This new prototype has the stability of a long range range driver, which is the ability to flip up a little but enough resistance to turn to not flip too much, then a long glide pattern with lots of penetration and a predictable slow fade at the end. I’m pretty confident it is good to go and we will get into full production next week; we just need to name it! Please comment with your ideas and suggestions.

  1. Name ideas… Commando, Hellion, Jackyl, Marauder, Stealth…

    Just a few… Be nice to try out a proto… I’m just sayin!!

  2. You could call it “Secret Weapon”. Like after launching a bomb off the tee your buddy asks, “what was that?”, and you just smile and say, “thats my “Secret Weapon'”

  3. The Gateway “Blitz”

    Blitz: heavy attack

    Synonyms: assault, blitzkrieg, bombardment, bombing, lightning attack, offensive, onslaught, raid, shelling, strike

  4. Played the Act VII yesterday and won one in the basket competition prelims. Guys were calling it the Proto. Beat that.

  5. In keeping with the Native American theme, how about Mohave (Mojave). Or with the devilish theme, how about hellion.

  6. terminator, black hawk, stealth, reminds me of the star trek “enterprise” with what looks like a concave portion on the top. sr-71, breakneck.

  7. Aplomb – noun. 1. irrefutable self-possession, poise, confidence or assurance. 2. perpendicular, or evenness. 3. stability.

    From the synopsis, this disc will provide great stability with a flight trajectory that will correct itself from being obtuse. Furthermore, every player needs to have that type of conviction with the disc in their hands while on the pad. So what if people miss pronounce Aplomb by calling it the A-bomb from Gateway. A long range driver should be explosive anyway.

  8. Samurai. It fits in with the theme of the other drivers; silent and deadly. Apache, ninja, assassin … samurai

  9. When you get around to making a larger diameter slow putter (like a big ryhno) it needs to be called the Winnabego. Some of us have large hands and could use a bigger putter, like a juju but better, the way Gateway would make one.

  10. Dave, here are some ideas for your next long range driver.

    Gateway : Archmage, Chieftain, Shaman, Shadow, Infernal

  11. what about Max-D, or SST, Black Bird, how bout Nitro? how about Fat Man…and a putter named little boy lol or the Accursed, that’s what people you throw it against will be calling it no doubt lol. Cruise Missle…this thing can reach Cuba!!! Air Raid…

  12. here’s a few. eliminator, enforcer, machete, scalpel, sword, torpedo, and villain. It sounds like a good flyer, can’t wait to pick one up.

  13. Name it the Gateway – Gargoyle

    I had a dream once where I was doin it to this super hot Gargoyle chic with like D cups. Think of the hottest Gargoyle you could imagine and multiply it by like three and a half. Any way when I told my lesbian ex girlfriend (long story) about my Gargoyle sex dream she reacted like I told her I was the uni-bomber or Hannibal or something. Our relationship was the never the same. Granted any relationship a dude gets into with a lesbian is not normal but i should have left the dream to myself.

    Needless to say I think it should be named the Gargoyle.

  14. SWIFT……METEORIC…….MACH 7……….TRANSAMERICA…….SONIC BOOM……REDEYE…..MR. GORDON’S FUNHOUSE……BOTTLE ROCKET……JETLAGG……CONCORD……RELEASE THE CRACKEN……*THE HOLE TICKLER*……FLYING SNAKE…..THE LUBRICATOR…..BALLISTIC….INCENDIARY…..NEMISIS…..F5……BUTTERFLY EFFECT……ANARCHY….CHAOS…..MONTEZUMA’S REVENGE…..LAWN DART…..RANGE FINDER……GOLIATH……I’ll stop now

  15. A lot of good names have been thrown out there. I have a few more to add. For the military/ Native American themes: Chinook, Hummer (trademark issues?), Hemmitt (a large, strong, heavy-duty, virtually unstoppable 8-wheeled vehicle), Cherokee, Choctaw, Mohawk, Inuit, Sioux, Cheyenne… For the ghost/ devil theme: (I like Hellion, but much like Lucifer, it may be too aggressive for the church going types), Beelzebub, Fiend, Phantasm, Poltergeist, Specter, Behemoth, Colossus, Monstrosity, Tormentor (as in your opponent’s), Executioner…. For the aerodynamic nerd theme: Slip Stream or David’s Bernoulli. The names I have problems with: Zombie-slow, stupid, and easy to kill; Lunatic-although it sounds pretty cool, the first time you throw it badly you will most likely be called one.

  16. “Captain” or “President”

    (you guys should check the approved discs list first: secret weapon is already made by ABC discs)

  17. mugwump = War Chief

    totem

    cougar

    skookum = “powerful, supernaturally dangerous”

    Navajo

    The Long Walk

    Mescalero

    Cree

  18. Made this suggestion to you personally a few months ago(thx for the Essex Open Sponsorship!).

    Pharaoh

    Egyptian theme hasn’t been ‘taken’ yet.

    Lots of these names have already been used btw way, Stealth(93′ Lightning), Marauder(92′ Discraft) & Shadow(Discraft 91′) to name a few.

    Thx David, Justin and the rest of the GDS crew!!!

  19. GRACE, EQUALIZER, Eagle, Stealth, WORMHOLE, ST. RAPHAEL, LION, HURRICANE, BLIMP, ANDROID, MAVERICKS (Not that I’m biased, lol),
    EQUALIZER, QUANTUM, ADAM, GREASE, GOOSE, GENGIS KHAN, ALEXANDER THE GREAT, PATHAGEROUS, PATHAGORAS, EURIPIDES, GRACE

  20. I had the pleasure of receiving 3 prototypes for a tourny entry. An Illusion, an Element, and a Wizard. I have to say I still thrown the Element proto after 5 years and would throw the Wizard still if I had it. The Illusion was to over-stable and fast for my throw, but I use it for very hard turns in fairways at lower speed.
    Anyway, just wanted to let ya’ll know that.

    New driver names. Tsunami, Oni, (as in Japanese folklore), The Chief, Blaze, Slice, Mach, Razor.
    I did like the post about My Secret Weapon.

  21. The Scrummy
    combination of “scrumptious” and “yummy”, used to convey that deep, satisfied pleasure that comes after you finish something

  22. how about just having a blank line ________ and including a dry erase marker with the disc for the first couple hundred you sell. Not sure if you have to legally name the disc but I think it would be cool to change the name of your disc whenever u wanted.

  23. Naming a disc has to be tough, I’ve been in a few bands and having to agree on a name is always the hard part. I got a few ideas that are kinda follow the theme you got going on, some don’t but they felt like good disc names to me. They are:

    The Executioner
    Guerilla
    The Mirage
    Subterfuge
    The Pirate (think of the stamp!)
    Combustion
    Solar Flare
    The Spark (may be taken)
    The Aztek (may also be taken)
    The Clydesdale (don’t know if you’re opposed to animal named discs, but you are in Budweiser country)

    I’m drawing a blank now. I suppose I’ll go back to shopping for my 10 discs. I’m pretty stuck on the putters, I’ve had Wizards and Warlocks that I loved and lost but the Voodoo and Magic sound like awesome discs too. Decisions, decisions…
