From DGA- Good news, your approach game just got a whole lot easier. The Aftershock is a less overstable variation of our previously released Shockwave. The Aftershock has great glide and holds straight and turnover lines on a very consistent basis. The Aftershock is for players looking for increased accuracy and has just the right amount of speed and glide to become your main midrange disc.
Features: Perfect for approach shots. Extremely versatile. Good glide and control. Perfect for players of all arm speeds. DGA ProLine plastic... DGA's ProLine™ plastic is as durable as any plastic blend on the market. Players love our ProLine™ discs because they offer more distance and long term consistency throughout the life span of the disc. A superior plastic blend for serious disc golfers.
The midrange market is a tough place for a new disc to make an impression. Most people throw only one or two different molds, and 90% of people throw mids designed years if not decades ago. Every year the big companies put out something new that more times than not ends up sitting on the shelves if not getting discontinued altogether. All this aside, I think that the Aftershock is a really good disc that has a chance to garner a following where other newer mids have failed.It is a larger diameter midrange in the classic style of a Roc, Buzzz, or Shark, with a bit of a modern twist. It has a fairly sharp nose for a midrange and low profile as well as a squared off bottom edge. In the hand it feels sort of like a Buzzz/Roc hybrid. It is available in a baseline D plastic, DGA's Proline plastic (ESP), and in a limited edition Sparkle Z plastic.In flight, the Aftershock is once again like a hybrid of a Buzzz and a Roc. It flies fast and seems to prefer lower lines like the Buzzz, yet definitely has an overstable pull more like a new Roc. Like those mids I compared it to, the Aftershock is a versatile disc. From hyzer it holds the angle all the way as it glides forward. Thrown flat it stays flat with an overstable pull about 3/4 of the way into the flight. Thrown with a slight anhyzer it holds a line and fades forward for an almost dead straight flight, and with more anny it holds the turn and comes back enough to flatten out for the finish. In the wind it outperforms most of its contemporaries with its speed and stability.I threw a Proline Aftershock for a month or so, and in that time it started breaking in and losing its fade. The square bead slowed its turn so that it still looked more like a Roc in flight than a Buzzz. I also threw the Z quite a bit, and that version was probably my favorite. It seemed to have a little more float than the ESP, and a little added stability as well. Maybe I was just swayed by how cool the Sparkle Z plastic looked with the small DGA shield logo in the center. Either way, the Aftershock is a very nice mid that deserves a chance, so if you feel like NOT throwing what 90% of the DG community throws while still enjoying the advantages of a classic stable midrange flight, pick one up.Review by Discspeed (Posted on 2/27/10)
