Default Prodigy New M1

And people say Prodigy's disc naming scheme isn't confusing.

Hmmm. I seem to recall the old M1 being decently OS. But then again, I'm no pro. Good on Prodigy for giving their players what they want. Tough market though...lots of really OS mids out there nowadays.

I have been waiting on this as their naming schema is very rigid, I don't expect this to be the last time we see this. I know this is marketing driven, but it puts me off. Call it an 'M1 Plus' and be done with it.
I want absolute values, not some relative numbering schema. Yeah, another reason for me to not buy their products.

Lol. Yea, ^ like you said, we were waiting on this. I have ZERO problems with their names, but this does get confusing.

Although no less so than Insanity, Inspire, Inertia, and Impulse.

Or Puma, Cheetah, Leopard, Jaguar, and Panther.

Or Hatchet, Mace, Maul, Sword, Scythe, Macana, and Dagger.

Etc...

Etc...

Sorry, pal, I was waiting on it. Building schemas is part of my daily job. I did not know which disc it would be, but a brittle schema like that will always fail unless every variable is planned from the beginning and no plans are ever changed.
Prodigy built a grid seven columns wide. At least the rows are named and not numbered. With the numbering schema, if the column in the direction one would want to fill is already filled, the field must be emptied or a decimal column created.

This is good news, besides the name confusion. The existing M1 needed more separation from the M2.

No, still M1. They tweaked the mold to make it more OS.

how can you sleep at night because of the bad naming system?

Have you ever thought that flight numbers are just some made up numbers?

Yeah, I still don't get what the fuss with Prodigy's names are. People have been complaining about this since day one, even though Lightning and Discmania were doing it long before.
