DGA Bag Review...

Postby jclepa » Mon Dec 15, 2008 9:15 am

Let me start off by saying I never really intended to carry a single company's plastic. But after picking up a Squall it quickly became my mid-range of choice (I used to carry Spiders and Sharks) DGA Plastic is the only plastic that I feel comes out of my hand consistantly...

Drivers
174 Tsunami - overstable driver
170 Tsunami - Stable Driver
175 Sparkle Rogue - Distance Driver
175 Rogue - Distance driver (soon to be beat enough to be understable)
172 Rogue - Understable Driver

Mid-Range
177 Shockwave - overstable midrange
175 First-flight shockwave - stable midrange
178 Squall - this one's really flat and used for throwing into the wind
169 Squall - stable to understable midrange

Putters
2x 170 Rubber Putter (Before you make fun of them, I've been using a rubber putter since I started playing and they just feel right to me now. I've tried wizards, aviars, and challengers and while I'm confident they could become successful I just don't feel like spending the time to learn them. Besides it's not like I'm a terrible putter anyway. I just wish that the Rubber putter could take a little more power behind it. I can't throw them more than about 60 feet out.)

Is this a usable minimalist bag or am I missing something?? I have found that lately I've been throwing closer to 350 for drives and the heavier tsunami isn't quite as stable as it used to be. Should I just pick up a new one or try something like a preditor?

That looks pretty good if you really want to just throw dga. However, when you start to gain distance the tsunami is not going to be REALLY overstable for you.

the tsunami is actually very overstable even people with big power. I was thinking about a beat in tsunami for a distance fairway driver for a while or a power hyzer disc since I can throw a 430' power hyzer with them.

A beat in tsunami flies very much like a new champ teebird. Almost too much like it. I switched to the pred from the tsunami

What plastic Pred would you recommend?? And are they anything like a Pulse? I had won a Pulse at a tourney and tried throwing it but between the groove top and the quick turn I couldn't stand them. They take way more power than I have right now. And most courses down here in Lower Alabama aren't open so I doubt I will be really developing more distance.

Thanks for your help

it would be nice if you had a true fairway driver in there, but i don't even know if DGA makes one. kinda a tough company to throw exclusively IMO

Riptide is their "fairway driver" I think. Not a bad disc. I have one that's a 9/10 if anyone is interested.

I use the Squall as my fairway driver... it's one of those long discraft midranges. And the lightweight Tsunami follows practically the same line as a teebird. Those two cover any shot that I feel would fit the fairway driver slot. Besides, the courses down here really don't call for many fairway driver shots. I would say I throw a Squall/Shockwave on about 75% of my drives.
