Default The D2 and D3 thread

The D2, grey 172 i threw was a monster, comparable to pd2.
D3, yellow 173, was like the light D1, flippy but not as touchy as the D4 can be.

Anyone else throw these yet?

Some serious consistency issues...the D1 is suppose to be the most overstable, followed by the D2 being somewhat flippy, then the D3 which is suppose to be stable to understable and last the D4. Needless to say, I am staying away from prodigy.

Threw a d2 for the first time today and it flew like a seasoned destroyer, I haven't seen any consistency issues with prodigy at all. Ive thrown 3 different m1s, all were the same, m4s are amazing, m3s are a touch overstable. D1 protos were kinda flippy but the mold was tweaked and my first runs are flying great. Ive thrown multiples of every mold and they are more consistent than any other company I've seen.

Im not defending the fact that 1's arent as OS as intended. But how is that a consistency issue? Regardless of their flight, they fly similarly, for sure within the tolerance of other companies mold to mold flight consistency anyway.

Where they screwed up was calling it the D1 in the first place. Much like the M3 debacle.

In my experience the stability goes like this from most to least overstable.
2,1,3,4. If they switched the D2 to being called the D1, which is likely how it was intended, it would be fine.

I agree about the mis naming and hurrying of the M3(2), and D1/2 seems like they didnt test enough beforehand combined with someone having their head up their butt was the problem. Its a silly one and easy to fix so thats good.

totally agree with you. this is why their naming system is garbage. Had they just given them normal names it wouldn't matter that they messed up like that.

Do I like the naming system? Not really.

Am i one of the people that are utterly perplexed by its infinite complexity? Also no.

What is a "normal" name?
I agree with your point tho, i they werent named in accordance to their stability it wouldnt matter.

ya i guess that doesn't make much sense. i meant a naming system not based on a numerical system that defines stability.

If it were accurate, it'd be awesome though. nice and simple to pick a disc no "What does the flying tiger do?" you'd look at each level (D, F, M, P) and know which one to buy for your stability needs instantly. Too bad they screwed that one up.
