Materials-wise, I'm pretty sure DGA is no different from Discraft.
Design/mold wise, I'm pretty sure most of the DGA discs have Discraft equivalents that are similar, and in some cases exactly the same... the differences are subtle.

the older molds actually used to have the discraft tooling underneath. in my opinion their discs arent good. their p line plastic is slippery and firm, Discraft molds them but they must have their own plastic which would be different then the rest of sublet manufacturers

the plot thickens. . .

If you throw or have thrown DGA plastic, please post your thoughts here!

I have a few friends that work at DGA and they have told me that they use different materials than Discraft. I actually like their stuff a lot more than Discraft plastic. SP has better grip than Z in my opinion and the same with their Proline vs. ESP.

Exactly. Proline is probably my favorite plastic. Think of the best, grippy ESP you've felt and that's proline, except it's the norm for proline. SP is grippier but I think it's also more durable. Closer to Opto than Z in my opinion.

Tsunami is an old mold Pred, Titanic is a Magnet with a spacer added, and a Reef is an APX. I think there's more but I forget (like the Rogue is VERY similar to a Surge SS for instance).

Haven't disliked a mold of theirs I've tried yet.

SP plastic is great. I have been playing around with a few of the DGA discs recently and while they are similar to Discraft it is not quite the same. I have been having fun throwing them.

I think proline is my favorite plastic as well.

I throw DGA a lot and I would agree with most of the others on here, their Sp line plastic is my favorite of all the Champion/Z style plastics. The undertow may be the one of the best fairway drivers that no one cares about.

Haven't thrown it, but since when is a speed 10 considered a fairway driver?
