It was just a stock 400 F1 that was flippy, I looked at it and it looked similar to other F1's ive seen but I could tell there was something goofy with it.

I used to throw a LOT of prodigy, like the whole lineup and I liked a lot of the discs, but found the F series very inconsistent. Though I still have some F5's that are really nice. D series, kinda ll over for me, but some of them I really liked. M series is solid, no complaints there, Pa are good too. H1,2,3 are fine. I like the new X3-4-5 also, so there ARE good discs, but when I tried to replace them I test throw and it was usually a gamble , I did not like that.

that's probably a reason for the hate. But IDK people like to be haters.

I don't hate Prodigy, but I won't spend anymore $$ on them because of this ^.

I had a few discs I really liked, but could never get another like it. Sometimes, not even remotely like it.

I was liking the F5 so I got a proto blue that looked, felt, and flew awesome, I got another one in Gray and it was gummier and much more flippy (same plastic same weight, disc looked different)

I later got another blue F5 and it flew great. So I bought another and it didn't look ANYTHING like the others, it was suuuuuper flippy , like it was an F9....serious. I then got a few more of a good run because they fly like my very first proto. So they DO have them that are consistent but unless youre in person and can look, also test throw, you never know. I hope they fixed that by NOW ha, but idk. I most recently threw X-3-4-5 and they were nice, but id be hesitant to pick one up in that it may be way more OS or US than I'd want. its too bad because I like their discs....sometimes.

^^ With all this said the Pa series has always (for me anyway) flown correctly. and the 400 pa4 and pa3 are super nice. So its whatever - every manufacturer has these problems, ive found it with EVERY ONE, but most often with prodigy - just my experiences and I buy/throw/trade/review a lot of discs.

I just put a 400 F1 in the bag.

I've been throwing 400 F2s for overstable shorter fairway slot. The one I got in June is now breaking in to straight. I put in an F1 to keep the really overstable flight in the winter winds. It should be $$$ by spring.

I've been carrying a mix of F2s and a F3 but now I'll probably cycle F1s and F2s and, because I'll probably lose some, the odd F3 or F5 to get the right mix of discs depending on the course.

I like the F's I use them all except the F3. I can't figure that one out. I have 2 of them- one 750 and one 350. They are not inconsistent. They each fly similar, but I can't find the F3 shot. I can control my F1,2,5,7 but can't seem to control the F3. When I turn it, it turns too much. I can't seem to hyzer-flip it, and when thrown flat it's not much different than my F1 or F2. Anybody else notice this? tips on the F3?

I just bought a 400 F1 thinking that it could be some sort of a "glidy Banshee". But this F1 is not even close to Banshee. It is a disc that seems to combine all the good qualities of TL, Teebird and Eagle, all in one packge. I have used it ony two days now, but i believe this disc will go into my bag.

After throwing a few different F1' over a couple seasons, I don't bag them anymore. The soft plastics became flippy and even the premium stuff was turning. And don't put anny on them or goodbye. These never resisted turn like the book suggests, but after breaking in, I just could not predict any shot with them. I still use the F5 and F7, but none of the other F series. I love prodigy plastics and use throw x2 x3 x4 d2. M2 m4 pa2 pa4. I own a few m3's but don't bag them in summer.
