Got a Shastashock this week, pretty overstable. Flies well enough to carry full time though. More high speed stability than the sparkle I carry and can trust it in a headwind. Now carrying 2 comets and 2 aftershocks and they pair very well together.

I would get your hands on a "Shasta-Shock" it's made out of the Discraft Swirly ESP Plastic. They also have some proline Aftershocks that look almost like a CE Plastic where they are a little firmer and almost a bit translucent as opposed to the standard Proline plastic which is grippy and glossy like a Big Z/Titanium Plastic. I've also found the D - Line aftershocks to be very flat, and I believe are even a shorter height on the PDGA approved discs sheet.

I believe you will love using the Aftershock with your Comet as they both have a Similar shape to them. Obviously different sizes of the features, but the same style.
I'm going to try the Aftershock/Comet combination. I've been looking for the right OS mid to pair with my Comet, but I haven't found it yet.

I'm gonna go ahead and speculate that the unnamed Tour Series Pipeline was intended for Sias. DGA really did him bad not giving him a commemorative Hellfire for his Sportcenter Top 10 thumber bounce ace at Utah Open last June.

I forget what is the mold that flies like a Impact from DGA? I had always thought that was a Squall. Anyhow before the Impact was out a player who used to use more Discraft/DGA discs at the time used a Squall for the same shot as an Impact. Now he has more Innova discs, but his main non wind putters are still with the modern DGA Signature line Steady Ed putters. Wind he uses something else not sure.

The tremor is probably the closest thing they have. The squall is pretty straight

Does anyone know if they are ever going to run more hellfires in SP?

Seems like proline is the only option.

This is my only problem with DGA discs: plastic/weight availability. I love my Banzai but it's only available as a stock run in Proline and a lot of places have sold out of the max weight ones

There was a limited SP Hellfire run for 2015 Ledgestone. Sias Elmore might still have Siasquatch fundraiser SP Hellfires. Otbdiscs.com has "special blend" Hellfires, and I've also seen tourney SPs on ebay

How does the Banzai compare to the 2nd run SP Pipelines? Those were more overstable than the first runs but weren't beefy. Just straight to fade.
