He can't shield or CC grab a SH Zair assuming proper spacing. I mean, he has a huge hurtbox so it's easy to get lazy with it and get grabbed, but assuming you do play the spacing game right, it's not a problem.Zair is actually not very good against DK at all. DK is very fast not slow and can CC dair longer than almost any character and can grab you from it leading to huge damage/death.
Properly spaced, it outranges all of his options and allows you to act sooner than he can punish you for it.
Now if you just Zair zair zair zair, etc, he can get around that and punish pretty easily, but to use it as a poke is never a bad idea.
EDIT just realized you said "dair" in the second sentence rather than zair... if that's what you meant, mah bad. But in that case, can you elaborate why you think zair is a bad idea?
