1000 newbs buy M2s
Except 914 of those newbs don't even know who will is lol.
Most new players aren't buying plastic online either.
So they are mostly buying from local retailers carrying
either innova or discraft exclusively. Buying discs based on
the cool dye or the biggest rim.

I'm thinking after they release the first four discs of each disc
type they will start a different naming system for any other
discs, with the first four in each category being their "core"
discs/flight patterns

I have thrown the pink, white, & blue M3 - pink & yellow M4 -Red & yellow M1
the white is more opaque, but it is just as sticky as the proto drivers or other color mids. The biggest variance i saw was in the Red M1. some are almost orange/red and much more translucent. i thought the opaque red M1s felt better.

I've thrown two M3's and they flew a little different. The pink test disc I threw was less stable and flew like a longer buzzz to me. The dark blue one that I bought flies more stable like a roc with less glide than the pink one. I was getting the pink one out past 300' and the dark blue one I get about 270-280'. Not sure if the pink one was just that much more beat in or if the blue one is just that much more stable.

The M3 is what i assumed the vector would be when it came out. Similar to a Fr vector but not current run. Havent thrown a current run, so maybe thats a bit off but IIRC the fr were more OS.

I love the M1...I used to loathe overstable mid-ranges. The Roc was about as OS as I could handle for a mid. But the M1 is just amazing. There is one hole on my local course, 248 feet in distance, and I parked it five times in a row, in five different rounds, with the M1. It definetly "dumps out" at the end of the flight, which can be really handy.

My buddy geofflaw got a white M3 and I think I might just love it MORE than the M1. My first throw with it, I thought it was just a Buzzz in cooler plastic, but after several more throws I realize it's actually quite different. Almost like a Buzzz OS, but not quite as beefy as Discraft would likely make said imaginary disc. I did manage to get some turn out of it, but that was unintentional and was 100% because of my ever-nagging OAT problems. It's honestly like an M1 that doesn't dump out as hard at the end (for me and Geoff at least). Even thrown into a rather strong headwind, it rode straight with a bit of fade at the end.

I think, and this might be me, the elevation I live at or variance in discs, that the M1 has quite a bit more glide. It beats the M3 on low, straight lines. However, the M3 was much easier for me to get a true turnover shot with. The M1 just fights you the whole way. Has anyone else had this experience betwixt the two?

Overall, I'm much, much more impressed with Prodigy's mid-range line-up than I am with their distance drivers. The D4 is a good disc, but the D1's I had were just too much beef for my short little arms and legs. The M1 and M3(M2?) are definetly keepers.

Mike do you have any Fuses left in your stack? Could you make a picture comparing the M3 to the Fuse?

I just got am M3, I figured Im not a power thrower and the M1 was the closes to under stable they had. I figured for me right now the M1 is too OS. I threw it a couple times and I really like it.

Default x-outs

I added an X-Out M3 to my last Marshall Street order to try one out on the cheap. I was expecting an imperfect stamp or something, but in fact, it arrived today and it looks pristine. It just has an "X" sharpied on the rim. Anyone know what's up with these?

Just picked up aan X-Out M3 and X-Out D4 at GGGT over lunch today, and I agree that they both look fantastic. I can't wait to get out and throw these today.

OK, just got back from Kaposia and the M3 is going to give my R-Pro Roc + a run for its money in my bag.

You throw it and it just doesn't want to give up the line forEVER. Tons of glide.

On a side note, the D4 is a meat hook for this noodle arm.
