I put a new one in the bag recently just to see if I noticed a difference. New one is a tiny bit beefier, so to answer your question.....no.

I have pondered on a Quake in mid grade plastic though. Would be cool to see how it broke in.

I have enjoyed the one in my bag a lot. But with the courses around me I hardly ever need an overstable midrange so mine still looks new after near a year of use

Now that folks have had some time with them, does anyone have thoughts to share on the difference between the Quake and the Buzzz OS?

They are more alike than they are different, but in my experience the Quake is a hair 1) faster 2) more OS 3) less glidey. The speed comes from the slightly wider rim, but the other two are likely related to the near-puddle top you will see on a lot of first run ProLine quakes. If you throw an SP quake, it will be much more similar to a stock Z Buzzz OS. Also the quake tends to stay on hyzer the entire way where the OS will go straight then dump. Overall I prefer the quake as it is truly a longer Zone.

I was able to beat my first proline Quake in to the point it straightened out a bit and I felt I needed a fresh one.

It began to lose fade and develop some small amount of turn.

It developed about a -.5 turn and about a 1.5 fade.

It was still very useful, just not in my most OS midrange slot.

So I bumped it down one slot and added a fresh one above.

Great disc.

Can anyone compare to a mortar? Quakes are large diameter right?

I've been regularly using my Proto Quake since they first came out. It hooks up later than it did at high speed but it doesn't turn over. I hated the Shockwave because it developed turn and loved my Big Z Drone because it seasoned without turn. So far for me, I've been super happy with the way my Quake has mellowed without developing turn or losing its wind fighting ability.

I agree that the SP Quake is surprisingly not as OS as the Proline. The Glow Quake is the most OS blend I've thrown. Not sure how it will season, but the Proline seems to be pretty stout.

Hell yes, bounced one into a raging creek recently so I have a fresh one in the bag. Pretty sure Matt Bell was doing work at the Majestic with a clear SP Quake last week. I wish I could get my hands on an SP.

I'm starting to feel like a OTB Discs pitch man, but they have a great selection of DGA exotics, including quite a few SP Quakes.

I threw my Proto Quake in Olpe Lake. Now I'm bagging a glow, and I'm good to go.
