Is the flash on that as serious as it looks in that pic?

Pretty sure NoLifeLeft isn't worried about the camera flash. He's talking about the molding flash- the thin bead of extra plastic on the bottom of the disc- looks like there's a fair amount on that disc.

I think he's referring to the flashing on the disc rather than a camera flash, and yes it does indeed look serious

edit: ferret beat me to it

Other companies have done well with improvements to the Roc-like mold (Aftershock, Ghost, Roc3, etc.), so will be iteresting to see how their version turns out.

I'm hugely surprised that few are going after a Squall clone, arguably the most versatile and glidey mid ever made.

Huh?

Many people around these parts suspect that the Squall is one of those molds that Discraft wishes they could have back for themselves. Instead, they molded it up exclusively for DGA, and I believe it is DGA's best-selling disc of all-time. Discraft has made Squall-esque discs, such as an under-stable version called the Glide, or a faster version called the Zombee (2012 Ace Race disc, arguably more of a fairway driver than a mid-range).

If you never tried the Squall, you're really missing out on a true gem. They hit the nail right smack on the head with this mold. It will never be axed, but rather coveted by all.

I wasn't sure. DGA doesn't get a lot of play around here (though they are carried at the local PIAS). Is it like the old Storm?

The squall is a great disc that is too tweener for me. My buddy carries 3 though.

Good plastic (they run sparkle or SP as their Z blend), basically an extension of Discraft, with some better molds than any in Discraft's line-up. The Rogue is another excellent disc (think of a straighter Wraith). The aftershock is a workable Roc-like mold, and the Hurricane is Destroyer-esque (but definitely better in SP).

This. They are really fun to throw though. Rogues are good but the plastic is kinda all over the place. How bout that Prodigy plastic? Any of the local junkies order yet? :wink:

No problem.
I threw the D4 &d1 today not impressed. D4 plastic was slick and d1 plastic does not seem durable. I was getting more distance out of my wraith. It might do better for a more powerful thrower.

They have more than one type of plastic? I thought the D1 and D4 were the same plastic but different molds.

Not sure if it is different plastics or not. Looks and "feels" different.
