The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I just bought a 166gm. DGA Rogue yesterday. I threw it today and it seems to throw exactly like a Star Wraith except farther..........so I love it, and cant wait to break it in. I was just wondering what other people thought of them, or other DGA discs to try. Thanks !

Wraith?............ I have a noodle arm and that was my turnover disc till it got to flippy. Also couldn't handle a headwind for me. I thought of it more as a Sidewinder. I loved the "D" but it became to flippy for me.
I have one similar to a wraith as well.
The Squall is a pretty sweet disc. It's a Midrange kinda stable. Great disc. The Shock Wave and the new After Shock are some great midranges as well. Don't know what to compare them to. They just have above average "D" compared to most midranges IMO.
I've only experienced Rogues that were too flippy for me to even use - in the mid 170's. I switched to the Z Surge SS, very happy.
love me some surge ss. get a flx...awesome!
Maybe one of the Team Discraft guys might know what mold the Rouge is? I've been told DGA uses Discraft molds on some of their discs. Anyone?......
i read some where a rouge is a modified surge. Betcha Mr. Ellis would know for sure. My rouges are pretty sidewinder/valkish.moved up to a surge ss when it started to get a little flippy
Rogues are superb. I carry two in the bag. For me, they act as turnover discs for my primary forehand drive or as a straight driver for an occasional backhand drive.

Like all the big rimmed discs, Rogues will vary in stability based on run and color. For me, all the variations are useful and all of them glide forever.

A Rogue is very similar to a Z Surge SS. The Rogues come in Sparkle Candy and Candy Blend plastics. The Sparkles tend to be among the more overstable ones. For those who haven't seen the sparkle plastic, it is a clear candy (Z) with little sparkly, light reflecting bits added to it.

Rogues are made by Discraft for DGA. DGA returns the favor and makes Discraft Chainstar baskets.

For anyone who does not have a monster arm, the Rogue might be a favorite primary driver. So if you need a disc as overstable as Force or a Boss to throw for distance then a Rogue is much less stable and will flip (which is why I use it as an anhyzer driver). But if a Force or a Boss is too overstable to glide in your hands then a Rogue may be perfect. Throw it flat and it pops up and gives exceptional glide.
Yeah, I have a monster arm that is getting more and more worn out with age. So I gave the Rouges a shot. Turns out that I can get more distance out of them than any disc out there, and with half the power. I throw mine at about the same rate that I throw midrange discs. I'm getting about 390-400 ft. with these consistently. It will let you know when you've thrown it too hard,, cause it flips. I now carry 2 of them also, 1 Sparkle, and 1 Proline. However they don't do very well in headwinds, otherwise any other wind I have no problem with. They are a really nice disc! I would recommend them to anyone who doesn't throw hard, or can learn to not throw hard.

I also throw a Tsunami, Shockwave, Squall, and the occasional Aftershock. The squall is by far my favorite. Great high speed midrange. If you need that extra distance but don't want to throw a driver the squall is what you need. The shockwave is the same way just a whole lot more overstable. The tsunami, I would compare to a Destroyer or Excalibur. Still not sure if I like the Aftershock, it's kinda right between the 2 other midranges. Don't really need it!
i thought that i heard that the rogue is from a modified surge mold...
I'm kinda the same as russel, big arm thrower. once I learned to stand and throw my Rogue without trying to put it in the stratosphere it works great! I think there are quite a few discs like this that work better when not thrown "full-force" by some of us.
we all throw a little different I think. my 12x star wraith goes a little farther for my and I can throw it harder without flipping over,( which has changed as it's been beat-in) but it just doesn't quite do what the Rogue will in certain situations.
I like the first runs.
