I got one of these in my NCDGC players pack and I've been loving this disc as my slower Firebird/more OS Harp and Roc3 role. Backhands the thing just dives to the left, but I usually throw Roc3's for Backhands. However, it's the perfect forehand mid for me. I can work huge flex lines on tight approaches that come back, and get shallower skip shots for those slightly off-placed second shots. I just need to work the backhand out a bit more and this thing will definitely be in my bag for the foreseeable future.

I have a VIP Harp in my bag that hardly ever gets thrown anymore because of the Quake.

I pulled my Buzzz OS and my drone for the quake. It feels so much better in the hand than those 2 for me. Very happy with this release. Bought a few more for backups last night.

I am very interested in the Quake as an OS utility

I like the Squall very well for understable / turnover type shots.

I also like the Truth / Verdict combo for a roughly stable shot.

I throw a Zone regularly for P&A.

I have tried the Drone, Hornet, Buzzz OS, Q-Sentinal and none were the right fit.

Has a lot to do with feel in the hand. I like flat topped, grippy, and shallow either beadless or with a smallish bead.

Considering trying the Quake or the Justice.

Any thoughts, would the Quake be worth trying?

Well, I could see the Drone/ Hornet/ Q-Sentinal being too domey or deep, but the Buzzz OS is super flat and shallow? If that wasn't what you were looking for, don't go Justice. Justice is a Buzzz OS with a bead, so it's a hair deeper.
Quake is just like a Buzzz OS without the squared rim. If that was your issue, than definitely go with the Quake.

The squared rim was exactly the issue on the buzzz OS for me, good call!

Smallish hands and some underlying tendinitis and arthritis make finding the right grip critical for me, otherwise the disc flies free before I complete the hit.

Thanks for the advice

I finally have in my hands the new DGA Quake

Once again as I often am with DGA I am VERY impressed. It is a beautifully pearly and quite grippy Proline plastic.

Completely flat top (besides a small indent perhaps from shipping.) Flight plate is fairly firm with just enough give.

Nice feel in the hand, smooth shoulder, very comfortable rim no flashing, easy to grip RHBH power grip.

Nice graphics.

Quite convinced this would garner a lot of attention if it was put out by one of the bigger companies.

I am anxious to throw it, hopefully this weekend I will get a chance.

Wow, is this Quake sweet!

Local hole, not terribly long, but the only consistent way in is a straightish drive 2/3 of the hole length followed by a sharp left turn and then the remaining 1/3 length.

Never was successful with any other disc.

I hit the pole on my first drive with the Quake.

I'm impressed with this one
