Hilarious.
Maybe it was the fact that people bought D4's and it flew like a D1.

I freaked out one day on my way back from Glide that I had accidentally bought an M1 instead of an M4.

Thankfully, I grabbed the right disc.

It's a little annoying, but I'm not a huge hater on the disc naming, and at least the number patterns seem to be consistent (1 = Most overstable, 4 = Most understable, and the tweeners making up the stability difference).

Now if the discs could just be as consistent as the numbering...

Now that is the only valid debate topic I've read on this entire thread.

The last two posts that is. I don't know how consistent Prodigy is but I'm still baffled on the naming convention topic. Kaiser/Heavy seem to think they're pretty inconsistent, and I've heard that other places as well. I unfortunately only have one proto D1 and one proto D4 so I can't relatively compare, but they both fly like I thought they would. I will find out eventually though.

My D1's are fairly overstable. First run and prod run fly the same.
My D3's are less over stable, they flip up a little, and fade slightly at the end.

If you can't throw with enough power/speed to get these high speed drivers up to their speed needed, they will not fly as they are supposed to just like every other high speed driver by any manufacturer.

However calling it 300 would make more sense to me, that hasnt been my experience, they couldve misspoke or just been mis informed/confused? Idk.
I get their vendor emails after trying to order some drivers before they locked down their website (still not sure if I want to make an order since they've now extended the offer). Their 4/9 email mentioned the PA's would be produced in 500 series plastic.

They don't even mention 500 series plastic on the Putters Page on their website:

"PA1 Putter
This Putt and Approach disc is designed to be over stable
Putters come in packages of 25

Plastic Series 400 (available now), 750 (not yet available), and 300 (not yet available)"

IE) I love legacy but if you don't have a flight chart how do you depict the stability difference between the patriot and the rival. This company was just an example but you could say the same for any other. And don't give me the bs excuse for innova's flight rating chart (speed, glide, turn, fade). We all know how accurate that is from a consistency standpoint. At the end of the day it's not what people are used to so they get their panties up in a bunch. What everything boils down to is consistency in molds. The company that can mass produce the most consistent molds will eventually be the most successful for serious discers, no matter what the naming convention or of those molds might be.
Seem like you are grouping a whole lot of people under the moron category. I kind of see it like Innova selling discs under D S12 G2 T-1 F2... I realize that experience disc buyers would understand the basic flight characteristics, but what kind of marketing is that for the average golfer? "Man you should check out this new 400G D3 I just bought." Most golfer would be befuddled, not just morons. IMO.
