I would compare it closer to a Discraft Glide or a Truth (stability speaking).

The squall is sneaky long. I like them but don't personally bag them. They are too much of a tweener disc for me. I like speed 4/5 midranges and speed 7/8 fairway drivers. The Squall fits between those speeds and I don't feel comfortable throwing it with my style. I would like DGA to make a slower under stable mid. Comet/Meteor-ish.

The only one I have left is a great sparkle squall...haven't thrown it in a couple years but it's going back in the bag for awhile. I think of it like a larger, slower Leopard, but it does so much more in the right hands. Great disc, totally underrated.

The first part I agree with.

Also, where is Deklarius? I'm worried that he hasn't posted here yet. Is he ok? Has he been kidnapped?
Haha. All my favorite descriptions were already used. The only one left is "My choice for one disc rounds."
Here's one I've never thrown out: It's the DG equivalent of a 7 iron.

I got a ton of suggestions to try one of these out in another thread and now that I'm reading more about them I'm definitely considering it. I know flight charts are always open to interpretation but Marshall Street has the Squall pretty far over on the understable side of their chart, reading these posts make that sound as though that's not the case.

Is there a variation in the runs or is it different plastic types that effect the stability or is it a toss up as to what's stable and what's flippy? I'd hate to buy one and it be a roller out of the box.

I prefer the SP Squall over the Proline. I have 2 of each.

They are both really neutral in stability. Sparkles are more hss and have less fade and prolines have a little more turn and fade, in my experience. Sparkles are the way to go, they just fly better.

Buzzz (left) vs. Squall (right)

Leopard (left) vs. Squall (right)

Stalker (left) vs. Squall (right)

I think I gave away my Truth; I think it might be one of the closer profiles to the Squall.
