Review: The DGA Rogue is simply put an amazing disc when i started throwing a little over a year ago i only threw rhbh throws and i maxed out about 250 to 300 feet. Then i learned how to throw sidearm and really opened up my game. I started with a star wraith and could throw 350 to 400 feet but it had to be perfect. When i got a rogue that all changed it is so versatile i can make it turn right or left. If i want max distance i can shrow a nice s curve for somewhere between 400 and 500 feet and if i want to throw an aproach shot i can wrap it around the pole. This is my go to disc as a matter of fact i have 3 in my bag. A must buy for any sidearm thrower.

Review: The Rogue is basically an understable Wraith. I only throw it for distance with a decent tailwind, but when I do, it is the farthest flying disc I have. I also throw it when I need something to flip more than a Destroyer or a Wraith. I also think it would be a great long distance roller disc, but I don't really throw these.

Review: I stumbled upon the Rogue one day while at the local Pro Shop. I ordered a 172g Star Sidewinder, but somehow the order was lost. I searched around and found this guy in the used bin. The lip seemed pretty similar to that of the Sidewinder and plastic felt like Innova Star plastic with even more grip! How could I lose!

I took this thing out to the local course and WOW! When thrown backhand it handles much like a longer, faster sidewinder. PERFECT! I got the great S-curve of the sidewinder but with added distance. When thrown sidearm this disc is laser beam straight. This disc has improved my distance and accuracy for longer drives. I have two in my bag now! This plastic is AMAZING!

I disagree with DGA's specs of this disc (as mentioned in previous review). This disc is faster and more stable than DGA lets on. Be warned that you need A LOT of room for turnover shots with this disc (not suitable for tight-wooded dog legs)...and headwinds are not friendly. Great downhill driver. I would be scared of how far this disc could be thrown with a good tailwind. Go get one!

Review: The rogue is a stable ultra long range driver with good speed and a lot of glide. It has the speed of an orc or a flash. It has the high speed stability of a max champion beast or a mid weight x avenger so it will flip and is not suitable for head winds. Low speed stability is something like a sidewinder or a tracker. It doesn't come back if turned over too far but will have some consistent fade at the end of the flight if thrown flat. It has some of the best glide I have seen for a long range driver and will carry very well on a low line. I was a little surprised to see the "innova ratings" on the DGA site. I would say that it should be speed 10 turn -2 fade +1 glide 5. The one I am throwing is a white "first flight" disc that feels like esp plastic. It feels a little softer than normal esp and slightly more grippy. I would say the thing that really sets this disc apart is it has really a good stability range with good glide. The flight path most reminds me of a faster longer sidewinder. It can be flipped flat or turned over and it will fly fast and carry very well. I think that this disc will work for a straight driver for those with 315-350ft and a good turnover driver for those who have distance beyond that.

Review: A beautiful helix disc. Even in heavier weights (which I don't tend to throw) I can make this thing fly a beautiful S curve.. Think of it as a slightly more overstable Surge. Can't say much about distance, haven't really compared max D throws...It gets where I need to. I've thrown it a couple times and had it turn right a bit, and then fade to straight. I'd say it's got less fade than a surge, and less high speed turn.
