I do not own any, but if forced to play one disc, I would be buying a Squall really fast. Super long for a mid, yet works as a mid. Great disc.

Has anybody thrown one or have any suggestions for me to try them out? - I'm itching for some new plastic. I like supporting some of the lesser known guys like Millennium and Daredevil Discs.
Sparkle Hurricanes definitely can be considered an overstable long range driver. I'd also highly recommend trying out a Rogue and Aftershock. If you do Facebook, the DGA is giving away a free disc every week day this month! You can enter here.. maybe you will end up with a new DGA disc to try!

I used to throw a Riptide. It's been a while though. Two of my friends pinky swear by the Aftershock, that's a nice mid.

I like the sparkle squall. Like a short leopard.

I really like my Proline Aftershock. It flies much like the DX Rancho Roc I'm testing out right now. I like it so much in fact, that I'm watching the mailbox for an SP Line Aftershock that should be here any minute. Unless I fall in love with the DX Roc, I'll probably get a few D-Line Aftershocks from light to heavy to check out. So many mids, so little time.

My Proline Squall is straight stable with a hard fade at the end, much more than my Z Buzzz. I can get it out to 300 with no turn. Everything I read says it has some turn. Maybe I got a fluke but I can rip it like a driver. It's not so useful to me as a powered down mid because of the hard fade and skip.

I have no idea why I bought the Shockwave. No glide and starts to fade upon release. I guess that could be a good thing and I have used it on one shot at my local course that requires a fade left around a tree in front of the basket with water 10' to the left of the basket and the ground sloping toward the water. A less overstable disk thrown with hyzer can catch wind and go in the drink. I can park that 180' shot with the Shockwave almost every time even if the flight does look ungraceful.

I'm tempted to try out an Undertow and a Rogue, but I don't know if they would do me any good over all the drivers I already have.

My favorite DGA disc is a broken in Rogue. I also use a Tsunami for big hyzer FH shots. I think it's speed is somewhere between a Predator and a TeeRex for FH shots for me.

The only DGA disc I ever owned/threw was an Aftershock and it was pretty cool. That was before I started throwing Vibram. Support the little guys!

Also, DGA makes great baskets! I hope they stay in business for a long time.

FYI, the tsunami is the original predator.

Riptide is now OOP.

In the bag are torques but they are the same as shockwaves.
I find that with their straight, major turn, and heavy fade flight i can shape lines like no other.
While i wouldnt call them glideless, they do have less glide than other line shapers. Imo i favor this as i can shape the lines but with better accuracy than say a squall.
