Default Trying Prodigy Again

I remember when Prodigy first came out I was super excited about their plastics because I LOVED the feel of them. However, after purchasing a few I found that the consistency among the discs was TERRIBLE. This was also 5 years ago and I was just starting out playing so I don't know if it was the Indian or the arrow... Has Prodigy fixed this issue? Or was it never an issue to begin with?

Anyways, fast forward to now. I just put in a large Prodigy order (I got a nice bonus at work this year ). I'm wondering how the lineup I built (purchased) is going to reflect my current lineup.

Current Lineup:
Judge
Harp
Core
Verdict
Justice
Underworld
Saint
XXX
Sword
Enforcer

Prodigy Purchase:
PA3
A1
M2
M4
F3
H3 V2
D1
D3

I obviously will not know how everything will fly until it comes but any early insight is greatly appreciated!

They all fly like discs. Prodigy is fine, all discs are fine. There will be subtle differences, and you'll have to break them in obviously but it's definitely the archer not the arrow. However, having the right (best for you) arrow can't hurt. So whether it be Prodigy, Discraft, some Trilogy brand or RPM discs they all fly well when you throw them well.

I like the A1 it’s like a zone but slower.

The ones you picked out look good. Give it a rip a report back. I make mono company bags from time time as funds allow and it can be a hoot.

I’ve done Innova, Westside and am working on MVP for 2019. Maby will revisit Prodigy if you report back loving it.

Jolt - The reason I went with the A1 and not the A2 was because I was hoping the A1 will be able to fill the Justice role in my current setup. I was actually going to go M1 but I watched a few review videos and the general consensus on the M1 was that it was very uncomfortable in the hand. F1 is definetely on the list of future buys to fill the role of my XXX.

Moose33 - Will do!

F7 is a killer roller disc, if that's a shot you throw.

Lolololol he's right though. Get off that Prodigy dick. They're just pieces of plastic regardless of manufacturer.

The biggest difference I can tell between an A1 and A2 is feel, the A1 is beaded.
I've always described my A2 as a baby Justice.

Sword=Tern=D3 with some very minor caveats

Not all M2s are created equal. Flat 400G M2s are really straight with a fade at the end. Domey 750 M2s are very overstable but still go a long way.

The H3v2s I've thrown are like beat in Thunderbirds.
I haven't found anything in the Prodigy line that glides and turns like the Saint.

The M4 is a good shot replacement for the Core I like the M4 much better. The M4 isn't so touchy.

M1 is definitely not a Justice type disc. It glides a lot more than a Justice and isn't near as dumpy.

For the same shots that other use a Harp I use an A4.

D1 is similar to an XCal, but a tick faster. Its pretty overstable, but will actually fly flat for a bit before fading hard. Will meet most overstable needs. Probably won't work in extreme headwinds though.

D2 is a great fast, neutral driver. Similar to a Boss or Nuke. It has a little high speed turn and good glide.

D3 has great glide and some high speed turn. Similar to a Shryke. Very long disc if thrown properly.
