It's the most CE plastic ever created since the last greatest CE plastic ever created, which is Prodigy's apparently "non-premium" plastic

I haven't paid more the 16.95 for any of my Prodigy discs and most were actually less than that.

Kinda what I thought, I was thinking what they have out already seems to be pretty premium. It should be interesting though.

Kinda OT but as to the hype.....the putters just came out I saw one posted up in a FB auction and it was promptly bid up to around 30 bucks lol....I can buy one right now for 20...not that Id pay that...but still dumb.....gotta have it first I guess....

I have a prototype driver in the 700G. It feels nice, but I wouldn't say its a CE replicate. My newest peave from the Prodigy team is the lack of product knowledge. It is 300,400, 700 (or 750 according to the website), 400G, 700G. I've seen the team members (those with stock in the company) refer to it as G700, G400S, and one more I can't remember. It seems like a simple naming convention and I'm not sure why there is such confusion. Its the number of the series first, followed by a G if it is glass filled. They need to have the correct product information drilled into their heads.

Dah FuQ?

YEAH RIGHT! Maybe at a store like Kinnucans. (Outdoors store that has extremely high pricing on Discraft discs)

That doesnt hold true afaik

Their "entry level" plastic is the 400s, next is 400G, their pro type plastic is called 500 tho, and then there will be another allegedly more durable 700 series.

I believe the msrp for 400s is supposed to be 17-18 and the other higher grade blend will obv retail for more, regardless of what price the 400s or g is at. Prolly by $1-2 as said before

Probably not, they just need to throw them well so everyone who buys a Brodigy automatically thinks they will throw it like Will, Nikko, etc.

Everyone giving prodigy **** about the naming convention of the discs is pretty weak in my opinion. Do you want a new company that's trying to differentiate themselves from the market to continue down the path as every other competitor. The entire "campaign" from what I've seen from prodigy is simple/sleek. I'm not a prodigy fanboy I'm just being objective. I know the plastic feels pretty good and I'll give them a shot just as I do every other company. And I have yet to pay over $16 for any prodigy disc as well, although I've only bought a D1,D4, and two M4's.

My local stores sell them for 16.00 and 16.99 at a Replay sports and a PIAS. At PIAS it's cheaper then opto plastic.

If they were $20 a pop I'd never try any of their discs.


Their names suck though. You don't know what a disc is supposed to do unless you're a fanboy. "4" doesn't say anything about the discs flight; it would be nice if they said either understable or their flight rating or gave us SOME clue as to what the disc did just by looking at the name/stamp.

That's my gripe; I'm cool with the "D" and "M" designations though.
