Default DGA Hurricane...Do u have one?????

I know there are threads out there on this disc, but im interested in ppl that have them in the bag. This disc is more or less a Modified Force. I just bought a couple and was interested in the pros/cons of this disc. I have 2 prolines 172g. What can i expect? This disc on paper seems to rival the destroyer but i dont hear anything about it.

Humor me

I have never been able to tame the power of which is a hurricane. They are much to powerful and cause massive damage. It'd be cool to have a hurricane, but other people would have to name it and it moves to quickly for me.

In my experience, it is more similar to a Nuke than a Force. I don't carry either (or any disc of relatively close in speed).

I used to have a proline that I liked to throw into the wind when I played a lot in west Texas. As soon as it started to flip over, I replaced it with a GL Halo.

It was a good disc and I liked the flight (for the purposes I used it) while it was new. I liked the grip and how it felt and released. I would give it good marks overall, but I won't get another one.

↑↑ that is my experience as well. Although just a hair slower. I can throw a hurricane maybe 20 feet shorter. Other than that they are identical to me.

Solid disc, they bomb. They're between a nuke and a force IMO. They handle wind better than a nuke, but easier to throw than a force or destroyer.

I carried one for a long time until they were phased out by GL Halos. Similar flight to me, but I was more consistent with the Halos. I still have a small stack of Hurricanes I use in field work. One thing I noticed - in order of stability they go: First Flight, Proline, Sparkle. Not sure why, but the First Flights were slightly less OS than the production Prolines - another reason they got phased out by Halos for me was that the ones I liked were the first flights.

I have two a P-line hurricane that bombs and is a huge "s" turner, then i have a SP Jon Baldwin hurricane which is exactly between a nuke and a force and it's in the Sp plastic which is awesome! I use it for large hyzers or long straight shots with a late fade. Love them! fits perfectly in my line up of high speed drivers.

Just received 4 First Flight Hurricanes in the mail. All 4 have the same PLH and dome. Comparing them to some of my production Proline Canes I have, 2 of my production runs have the same PLH and same dome. Some of my other production run Canes have a higher PLH and are flat. I'm glad I got a great deal on the FFs as I would have hated to spend big bucks for a stack of discs I already have a stack of. Weather too nasty to test but I expect the FFs to fly just like the production run equals. I'll report back to the 2 readers who care if the FF knocks my socks off.

Make that three... Im really excited to know how they turn out for you.
I have many Canes both in SP and PL. The production run (flat and high PLH)
are crazy overstable and basicly glideless.
I have two AM Worlds PL Canes. They are glidy and pretty straight for my arm. Very happy with those.
I also have a FF Yellow Pro Worlds Cane are Understable with a nice turn.
Im pretty excited if they fly the same for you.
