Review: I bought this disc as a straight flying option to fill the gap between my hard fading Demon and the turnover Meteor. This is not a bad disc, however if you do want a disc that is straight, stick with the Buzz. At least at elevation. This disc is very stable which makes it predictable. If the Star Eagle from Innova had a mid-range counterpart, then this would be it. I can't wait to throw it at lower elevation.

Review: This is a great disc that will hold just about any line you throw it on. As I have experienced with other DGA discs, their (DGA) description is typically pretty generous. The Shockwave isn't as overstable as DGA professes, but it will hold a nice hyzer line for you when thrown right. This is the first disc I have used that I can throw on one hole at a pure hyzer, then turn around on the next hole and throw pure anhyzer without worrying that the disc will fade out. Also, you can throw this thing on a straight line and only get a slight fade at the end. Very smooth throwing and easy to get used to. The one drawback is that it is pretty shaky in the wind, but then again, so am I; so we'll just assume this flaw is due to user error. I'm pretty sure this disc is going to replace at least a couple midrangers in my bag once I get more comfortable with it.
