The Gateway Shaman is a slightly understable putt and approach disc with a very thin profile. This thin putter is like a beadless Chief, or a slimmer Magic. If you like thin putters, but don’t like beads, you’ll like the Shaman.

The Gateway Shaman is currently available in Diamond and Suregrip plastic.
Sure Grip does exactly what you would think. It is a baseline plastic with superior grip making it a great choice for all conditions out on the course. Personally, this is one of my favorite baseline plastics in the gateway lineup. It has a similar grip to XT plastic from Innova but has a stiffer feel in the hand. It is a great choice for players who like the have confidence in their grip but some people might find it to have too much grip for their liking.
The Diamond Plastic is a premium line of plastic meant for durability. It offers a good amount of grip with some stiffness that is very comfortable in the hand. This plastic is great for driving putters, midranges, and fairway drivers. It compares well to Champion, Z, or Lucid in other brands. Expect molds in this plastic to be a little bit more overstable than some of the baseline plastics.
