I posted in the "Prodigy M5" thread about the M4 I found at PIAS today. Used, but no ink (until I put my phone number on it!), half price of the online prices of brand new ones. It says "first run" on top of the disc. It says "M4G" on rim underside, so I'm pretty sure it's a first-run M4 in 400G plastic.

It feels great in the hand, and while I haven't had a chance to test it (rain from Hurricane Pamela passing through here today), I'm looking forward to trying it out alongside the 300 M5.

^^^ This is very correct. I still have quite a few of the same discs in my bag I did a year ago when I first got picked up by Prodigy and they are only now showing little signs of wear. The plastic is all extremely durable, especially at max weights. Some of my lighter weighted drivers have broke in a bit faster than the max weight ones. If you don't like cycling through plastic a bunch, Prodigy plastic is the way to go!

Ooh. My gal has family in south Texas on the Mexico border and they're fighting the rain as well. (as well as last weeks storm that came in from the gulf) The 400G M4s are phenomenal, but the 750 comes out with a dead flat-top and flies like a dream. If you ever see a 750, I would highly recommend it. My favorite turnover disc I've ever thrown!

Marcos is dead on. I have a 400G Big Jerm Distance Record D3 that I've had for a little over a year. I've driven that sucker into so many trees, skipped off countless paths, and banged plenty of pins with and it still flies just as true as when I got it. Same as my first 750 M4. After a year of use (5-6 rounds per week) and throwing it on at least 50% of the holes, it does not change flight one bit. I also have a pair of 400s D2s have all been in my bag for two years now as my main max D drivers and I still can't tell any difference in flight. The plastic feels a little softer than new discs, but the flight is just as predictable.

As always, Prodigy has THE BEST premium plastic on the market. Hands down.

Cheers.

Is the "proto" plastic always a certain plastic? In specific, i'm wondering which prodigy plastic my proto PA1 is in.

No. Proto only signifies that it is before the first "production" run of that model and plastic type. Several molds have changed and some Protos are more valuable for that reason.

However, any given Proto may be a 300, 350, 400s, 400g, 750, or even "TEAM" plastic. I have "proto" stamped discs in all but "Team" - which was the original name for 750 plastic as I understand.

Lots of discs are stamped "Team" on the flightplate, but if you find one that is sharpied "TEAM" next to the weight and model name (EG: "D3-175-TEAM" on my Jerm Stamped), that was (as I am told) pre-release 750 plastic. Super cool collector as a Prodigy fan-boi!

Hmm...my 400G M4 is weird, glossy-oily slick flight plate, but matte-grippy edge all around, about 1 inch in...which might work out okay cuz right where the thumb goes. 400G PA3 is sweet, nice and grippy with slight peal effect.

Looks like Prodigy's day 1 consistency issues are still there.

Thanks for dropping some knowledge!
Are all individual protos the same plastic? i.e. Are all proto m4s the same plastic?

Not sure. My proto M4 is 400g, so if anyone posts here saying they have a proto in 400s or 300, then you'll have your answer....

I used to have a Proto M4 in 400s at one time.
