Default DGA Love?

'sup frolfers. So I've tried pretty much all major brands. I always seem to wind up back with Innova and some Discraft. However I was offered a shockwave in trade and it got me thinking about DGA as they are the one plastic I have not tried. Any love for them on this board? What can you compare them to?

They're ran by discraft. Have a lot of modified discraft molds. Very underrated.

I think their stamp design is what is holding them back, and that they really dont have that big name pro to help them push their products

I love DGA. Their plastic is amazing. Their molds are awesome. All the meat of the Discraft lineup without the fluff. I've definitely considered making an all DGA bag. It's look something like this:

Reef (s putter)
Breaker (os putter)
Squall (us mid)
Aftershock (s mid)
Shockwave (os mid)
Cyclone (s fw)
Tsunami (os fw)
Rogue (us dd)
Hurricane (os dd)

All of these molds cycle well, but most don't need to be cycled.

One more thing, their 150 class is the shiz. Flies just like their max weight counterparts.

I love DGA a hell of a lot more than I love being called a frolfer and I don't own any DGA, so there you go

I don't understand why this company doesn't just get officially folded into Discraft. What is the point of it being a separate company? Are they trying to address a part of the market that Discraft isn't? I don't really get it.

Not that I support nor oppose it, but the same would be applied to Innova/Millenium/Discmania and Lat64/Dynamic/Westside, right?

...because DGA isn't owned by Discraft. They just have a production agreement (for lack of a more knowledgeable term).

DGA makes waaaay more off their baskets anyway.


Back to the OP's point...they do make some really nice discs. I love the Squall personally. For the uninitiated, imagine it as a premium plastic, beadless, perfectly seasoned Roc at a tweener speed. There's lots of shots you can throw with it, highly useful.

Very cool, thanks for all of the info. Not too worried about stamps as I dye my own. Sounds like something I need to check out!

What are their plastics similar to?
Dline = Dline?
Pro = Z?
SP = ESP?
