Default DGA disc talk

I just tried to show my love for DGA, but the All Things DGA thread won't take replies (older than 55days? weird). I figured I'd start a new one:

First off, when a disc company's website is www.discgolf.com, you know this isn't their first rodeo.
DGAs founder, Steady Ed Headrick:
- Inventor of the first disc golf basket, the Disc Pole Hole
- Designed and Installed the first Disc Golf course
- Inventor of the modern day Frisbee
- Founded: Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA)
- Established the first Disc Golf tournaments and a $50,000 landmark Frisbee Disc Golf Tournament in 1979.
- Donated his trademark “Disc Golf” to the public domain and his life to the sport he loved.

This is the company disc golfers should be supporting. Not some flashy noob pushing unproven, unreliable imitators.

Awesome post!

DGA discs definitely fly under the radar, which is a shame! Last year's introduction of the Breaker may have helped a bit, as I've heard tons of great reviews and stories of people switching from other molds to throw the Breaker!

I'm familiar with their whole line-up, and in my opinion, the standouts everyone should at least give a chance to are the Squall, Rogue and Hurricane!

What are your favorite DGA molds, Declarkus?

Ok, I'll bite. Squall, Rogue, Hurricane... what will they replace in your bag? Or what hole will they fill? I've seen Peter McBride throwing them.

I've had the same Proline Squall for almost 10 yrs. It's my favorite disc. I actually lost it several yrs ago and was devastated. I ended up finding it in a used bin a month later and was thrilled to get to buy it back (no sarcasm). Now I've got "$10 reward" under my #.

IMHO, experiences will differ-

Squall- slightly faster Buzzz, maybe a touch more glide, seemed more of a tweener than true mid

Rogue- Surge SS-ish, if you want an ESP Surge SS this would probably do the trick

Hurricane- Destroyer-ish, like Destroyers I think the different plastics give a huge variance of results. Not much experience with Hurricanes but the little I had they reminded me most of a Destroyer

Also they need to change their artwork to try and bring more people in. IMO they have the worst looking stock stamps out there. And that they keep their stock stamps on cfr stuff really doesn't sit well with me.

The hurricane, tsunami, and aftershock are very nice molds. A lot of people love the squall, tho it never clicked with me. Same with the breaker.
