The Breaker surged into the market in early 2013 in a wave of several disc golf putter releases. Does this overstable release from DGA sink or swim in the sea of plastic?
“The Breaker is an overstable putt and approach disc that is also great for midrange shots and will predictably “break” for the basket as desired.”
Available plastics: SP Line, Proline
Flight Rating: 3 speed, 3 glide, 0 turn, 3 fade
The DGA Breaker has a nice, flat top with a larger bead rim. This is very similar to the Discraft Ringer – enough that I can’t see much of a difference at all. The plastic has a nice grip to it, different than other grippy discs in that it feels like a powdery coating. I would say it is grippy without feeling tacky if that even makes sense.

It is worth noting that this putter is very good for putting in high winds. The overstable nature and lower glide fight heavy headwinds especially well for a putter. I did have trouble while playing in wet conditions. The plastic got pretty slippery from the dew during an early morning round.
After putting with the Breaker for several rounds I’m certain it won’t be replacing my go to putter. That’s not to say it won’t stay in my bag. Chris loves the Kastaplast Berg as an overstable approach disc, but I’m happy with the Breaker. I had been looking for an easy to release disc that could fill my 100’ to 200’ overstable approach need. I’m liking the Innova Colt for straight and turnover shots at this distance, but sometimes I need a hyzer line that only an overstable disc like the Breaker can deliver.
