Throwing an all DGA bag would be fun. I honestly could see myself going that route in the near future. Although giving up the Aviar, Gator and Firebird would be tough for me.. The Reef is a great putter, and now with the new Breaker coming out I would have an overstable putter to compliment it! The Firebird could be easily swapped with the Tsunami. I even have a couple rare Sparkle Shockwaves that are pretty beefy to replace the Gator. Hmmm..

I'm guessing it'll be more overstable than that though?
This is what I'm hoping for. I would love a Ringer, or Ringer-esque disc, in more durable plastic.

The rim looks crazy on this one. I wonder if it might be a good roller disc even though it is overstable.

I know of a good amount of people that have been clamouring for a premium plastic ringer type disc. I hope more folks see the DGA light with this release.

I would assume they make their money in basket sales. But that's probably because I've never seen anyone throw a DGA disc.

Yeah baskets

But don't underestimate floppy soft putters

Only Vibram Soft is close to their floppy putters(blowfly and gumbputt lines)

The Gumputt was my first "real" putter. I found one at a local course and started using it. My clearest memory of it was that even the jankiest of putts would flop in. Slightly low? Watch it squish and flip over the nubs. Weak Side? It'll just jellyfish into the basket. Too high? It performs like a snotball and oozes down into the cage. Roll away? I didn't even know what it meant until I switched putters. Hell, the only reason I stopped using it was because I felt like I wasn't getting any better at putting. Since everything went in, I never had to work on accuracy. I went out and bought 2 of the hardest putters I could find (early run Titanics), and now the feel of a soft putter literally creeps me out. I have a half a mind to get another (or a Vibram soft) just for quick greens and death putts.

Here's what I know from my sample of one each. Keep in mind that I am high and I'm a noob:

ProLine (First Flight - I think they all are) Aftershock 167g flies exactly like my fresh DX Rancho Roc 176g. Despite the specs they are the same diameter.

They fly the same for me. Last week on a short 200 ft drive I hit the top of the basket with the Roc. I threw the Aftershock next and it took the same line and also hit the top of the basket. This story doesn't really mean anything, but I thought it would be an exciting diversion.

My SP Aftershock seems faster with more fade, but I only threw it one day.

I can throw the ProLine Aftershock hard like a Buzzz with no turn and with a Z Buzzz like fade at the end of 300 ft or throw it like a putter with a little anny to get a nice flat landing.

The ProLine (not First Flight, not Torque mold) Shockwave 172g is nuts overstable with very little glide. I don't have anything in my arsenal that is as overstable for it's intended distance.

I'm itching to try a D-Line Aftershock. If I were a limited mold/brand man I can see this possible mid lineup:
ProLine Shockwave for very overstable.
SP Aftershock for overstable
Proline for very slightly overstable
Seasoned D-line for stable (straight)
Beat D-Line for understable

Anyway, I like DGA stuff and look forward to the Breaker as well as some drivers.
