DGA Shockwave: October, 2007

Hey guys, here's what looks like another quality product to come from DGA... The team DGA guys are comparing it between a Roc & A Buzz, and a Buzz & a Wasp. I'm assuming they're talking DX/Pro-D plastic, whiel this looks like the better range plastic from DGA.

Looks like a solid disc. Am I correct in assuming Phil will be the first to try it out, since you're such a Rogue fan? 8)

Got mine today...and headed to the rugby field. After a few throws, it reminds me of the MRV, only in ESP plastic. It is a very straight flyer with a good predictable fade. It can handle a moderate headwind. If I were to put it on the Innova scale, I would say:
Speed: 5
Glide: 5
Turn: 0
Fade: +2

It is very similar to the crow too, but with better glide.

So, it's basically a faster Roc with more glide? What's the rim like?

Similar to a buzzz, but with a small bead on it. The bead isn't much at all. It is a bit more domey the the buzzz. I threw it quite a bit on saturday out at walnut. I don't think I had a bad shot with it(I did have a lot of bad shots with the rest of my discs thought).

I got to tell you, this disc is very dissapointing. I was expecting something similar to the Drone, but in a premium plastic. This disc feels like a drone, but flies like a flippy D buzz. Not at all what I expected and cant really see a use for it. I like the way the disc feels, but not the flight path at all. I could have gotten one of the inconsistent molds, because most of the people on the pdga forum have said that their Shockwave were overstable. :cry:
