Review: After getting this disc I finally understand what a go-to-disc is. The squall is quickly replacing the the Sharks and Rocs in my bag. It's longer than any other midrange I've thrown and holds any line: Hyzer, Straight, or Anny. It can even handle the torque from driving. I've started using it for most drives on holes under 300. The plastic is second only to Lightning's proline, very grippy and consistant. This disc is definately worth trying out.

Review: The Squall has become my favorite disc. It flies very straight and holds whatever line you give it off the tee. Excellent for accurate, low fade drives and approach shots that might make you throw a putter too hard.

For years I've throw Rocs and didn't think another disc could ever take their place. The Squall is similar to a slightly beat Roc but has much more glide. I can drive with this on most holes and find myself going to it again and again whenever I need a controlled shot (when don't you?).

The DGA plastic feels great and is very durable.

Note, too, that while the Squall is similar to a Discraft Glide, they are not the same disc. A little more stable, the Squall is very predictable at high or low speeds and handles drive power and windy conditions with ease.

Top rating from me.

Recently purchased a Squall and I am very pleased with it. I threw for many years, but took a break, and now that I am back am just amazed at the plethora of discs. Have been working my way back into the game, and the Squall is a great help. Am using the 177+ weight, which means heavy, and am pleased with the medium speed stability of this disc. I find that a smooth hyzer into the wind will hold the line, and go where I threw the disc. This disc does dive in direction of spin at the end of its flight, and will blow if the wind is behind it. Thrown flat into a crosswind it does have good "cut" - so you can play the wind a bit, but be careful not to get to much wind under it. All in all, I would describe this disc as a dependable, durable, medium to high speed stable disc. A good workhorse, with just a bit of flash.
