They faded about the same, and landed in a pretty tight shot group, with the Tsunami fading and dumping faster. The Tsunami was unthrown, so time will tell how long it stays that way. That said, I rarely flick, so it might be a while. It's why I still have a 11x Firebird; bought it new and didn't throw it enough to lose it.

Can anyone give me an idea of how D-lines will continue to beat in? I'm guessing they will eventually get flippy. Do they develop glide? The Prolines beat in to fly similar to the SP Undertow. I'm hoping the D-lines get to the point where they turn like a Star Leopard, even powered down. I want to be able to laser them 300' w/o a run up.
My most beat d line tsunami is flying like a sweet spot eagle x. I field tested both of them and the tsunami flies a little faster but has a little less glide, so they eneded up giong the same distance. I also like that I can use a sparkle or proline for more overstable duties, so then I can cover all of my fairway duties with just tsunamis and leopards.

Rocked and all DGA bag today, including the bag. I feel like the only thing missing in the DGA line-up is a true stable to understable 7 speed fairway driver. That and Torrent in SP. Come on DGA! Maybe they are waiting until they sell 100 Torrents in ProLine before running them in SP.

One of the things I like about the Tsunami is that it is not going to glide away into the forbidden appointments of the course.

Just got a lightweight Proline Tsunami off Amazon for $6.10 shipped free with order over $35. That's 64% off MSRP

Necro bump here, but I have a question about the Tsunami. I am interested in trying one out and was searching around for them in D-line. It seems like most of the D-lines are low-weights (150 class). Does anyone know if they stopped making D-line Tsunamis in normal weights? Only a couple vendors seemed to carry them...

I have 2, 166g and 171g. The 166g got beat in just looking at it. The nose is too sharp to make for a good base plastic mold. Just as beefy as Proline when new. Proline beats in pretty fast so I don't see the point of a Tsunami in D-Line, and they sure are scarce. D-Line Tsunamies aren't listed on the DGA website so they very well may not be molded any longer.

Yikes - not being on their website is probably a bad sign. I will look into the prolines instead. Thanks!

This gave me a chuckle.

I don't bag D Tsunamis, but I try to save some fresh ones for rainy/wet/cold rounds for grip. They feel great.

But you're totally right about them beating up so fast because of the sharp nose. I also couldn't make them work because they develop too much turn and they get touchy with power.

Since I'm ranting, here's a weird Tsunami story. I bought a "Proline" from an online retailer a few months back, and they sent me a D-Line. This kind of thing had never happened to me, and I wasn't thrilled paying premium for baseline, but I didn't bother making a stink about it. A couple weeks later, I ordered a "D-Line" Tsunami from a different online retailer, and they sent me a Proline. Go figure those odds.
