I know when I saw Ricky this summer, he still has jk aviars, rocs, firebirds, destroyers in the bag

Most were stamped "prodigy" or "Team" but were in fact Innova discs

If he could develop a solid putt he would be a beast.

All of which makes me feel old.

I think Nikko should leave, he's doing terrible compared to his gateway days.

I think that worlds and USDGC should show people that prodigy is a JOKE. Maybe you gain minimal distance but is your accuracy better? Is your putting better? Don't think these new discs are helping guys like Cale Leiviska, Nikko Locastro, Ricky Wysocki, Paul Ulibarri and Jeremy Koling

I dont think they are doing any worse than last year. Ricky is probably the only one who could be considered to be doing worse, but he had a very hot 2012. Everyone else is doing the same if not better, evidence of which is sprinkled throughout this thread. I think Prodigy makes very solid discs. Nothing world-changing but still very good stuff.

Of course they are still playing good, they are still throwing their old discs.

SOME players are still throwing SOME of their old discs.

Also, correct me if Im wrong, but does anyone else notice that the ladies of Prodigy dont seem to be having the adjustment issues that the men are having? Paige, Allen and Hokom are all putting up awesome years and Ragna Bygde seems to have improved ten times from last year...of course she wasnt added to Prodigy until late in the season.
