The newest DGA disc release is a putter named after the game’s founder, “Steady” Ed Headrick. Will this putter find a way into my bag?
“DGA pays homage to our sport and company’s founder Ed Headrick with the release of the Steady putter. Headrick, affectionately known as “Steady” Ed to his disc golf family, got his nickname due to his steady hand and putting prowess on the disc golf course.At low speeds this putter will has a hyzer finish and with increased speed it will show a reliable and straight flight path. This beaded putter feels great in the hand and looks equally great resting in the basket. The Steady is available in a unique blend of DGA’s D-Line plastic which helps create the perfect grip and feel for a putter.D-Line plastic will be very tacky and give superior grip in any weather condition. It will reach its intended flight characteristics earlier that when produced in SP and ProLine plastic.”
Available plastics: D-Line
Flight Rating: 2 speed, 3 glide, 0 turn, 2 fade
The plastic feels great, grippy yet solid. It isn’t the firmest flight plate by far, but it flexes similarly to Innova’s DX plastic. There is a larger bead on the rim but it doesn’t bother me at all. I really like the thumb track on the top of the disc. The simple signature stamp is very clean and looks great.

DGA has done a nice job creating a putter that performs well all around and feels great to use. It has only been out for a short time but the Steady has found a place in my bag and I think it will be there a while. “Steady” is a perfect name for a disc that performs so consistently.
