If you threw a stencil on a pink Prodigy and left it in the sun - effortless dye job.
It will only stay like that until it is in the sun again. Then it will be all white.

I played a round with mine today and did some fields throwing. Maybe 3 hours or so, I started to notice it maybe by the ninth hole or so. Its basically kind of a milky pinkish now maybe, at least I got it to fade evenly so its all one color. Id take a pic but I cant seem to get a good one and we all know what it looks like by now. I honestly don't mind it, I think it looks fine and the disc throws nice. However the fade is unavoidable, its going to happen. Its a thrower and all I really care about is does it fly right and if I shank it into the woods will I be able to find it without having to spend 20 minutes looking for it.

Still love the disc and the feel though. Right now I think I'm still throwing my Roc a bit better, but that's probably just my inconsistency and I think the Roc is a bit more forgiving.

I see it hasn't occurred to anyone that if the color is fading from the disc, the plastic is DETERIORATING. Someone with fat pockets who has a Prodigy should set it out in the sun till June and see how the plastic holds up. Prodigy should have done this themselves, but they obviously keep taking shortcuts on their journey to their self-described takeover of the market.

Makes that little pep rally at the 18th basket seem kind of silly now, doesn't it?

If you are not happy please return it to Wendy and have her return it to us for a full refund.

Thanks,
Wow, this is really manipulative language. First tell the customer they should have known there was a problem, then belittle the customer by telling them they're in the minority in not wanting a junk disc.

Good lord, the plastic is fine, learn something before flying off at the keyboard.

I can't wait for a company to release actual premium discs instead of this Ti doodoo. I would pay 25 a pop if a disc had excellent grip, consistency, and durability and not just ohh looks like metal but has no other redeeming qualities.
Have you ever heard of Latitude, Westside, or Dynamic Discs?

After my round and field throwing yesterday:




after my round and field throwing today:



It looks darker then it really was and is in both of those pics too.....Its nearly white now.

Like I said it still doesn't bother me but just to put it out there for others to make a decision.

Throw a glove on it and you'd have a hand (dye) job.

They have consistently good plastic, but their molds are not (and never have been) very consistent. I walked away from them for years because I couldn't find a decent replacement for my first run Strikers. They do make some great discs though.
