Prime has a more tacky feel than classic or blend, but still hard like classic. Kinda feels like jawbreaker, but less rubbery.

I honestly haven't throw DX in like 2 years so. It is they're lowest cost plastic so, in that case yes. But the feel for me with prime is much like a more velvety type BTmedium plastic, I so i would say the classic blend except more tacky. I've got nearly all the plastics of Harp so, medium, which is classic blend in DD side.
Give it a shot, they only cost like 13 to 14 for the burst..even less for plain.

I'll probably order a couple then, I don't have a place that sells DD anywhere near me so I've never felt them. As long as they don't feel like dx I should like them.

I'm not as in to trying out a lot of new stuff. Sold all of my other putting putter molds off this winter, as a way to force myself to commit to sticking with the Steady.

That being said, I do love finding some nice versions of what I am throwing. Will probably pick up some tour series stuff. Missed getting CT JB Wasps and mini star stamped Comets, they all sold out too quick. Still searching for Matt Bell Pro Series Steadys too, someone out there bought them because I can't find them online anymore.

Same with a Star Valkyrie, I want a no dome/nearly no dome to get the flight I want, a Viking type flight but using a Valkyrie disc. My older one has 2-3 micro chip spots including the one it came with.

I just got a Star Sidewinder recently and love it. Getting a Halo Sidewinder (USWDGC model) tomorrow (4/28). Have you thrown the Star Sidewinder? If so, how did it compare to the Halo? Did the Halo go further?

I really like the Sidewinder for forehands.....going to be interesting to see the Halo version in comparison - I've been thinking the heavier plastic on the rim (like MVP and Axiom discs) will give it more spin and further distance.

Prime is kind of like a tackier DX. Personally, I prefer Classic Blends as long as the temp is <80*ish, but in warmer weather I switch out Classic Blends for Primes. Logically you'd think I'd switch from Classic Blends to regular ol' Classics at that point, but Primes feel grippier to me while still being firm enough for warm weather. That's actually a big party of why I switched from Crowns to Judges, is that Crowns don't (or at least didn't at the time) come in Prime/Origio and I really am not a fan of Classic/BT Hard.

Has DD released a Lucid-X Verdict before? If so I would like to get my hands on one of those puppies.
