Default F1 vs F2

Occasionally I will find that I want a disc that is shorter than my PD. But more stable than my teebird. Looking at Prodigy, either F1 vs F2. Which would be more like a shorter PD? But not overlap with my teebird. Thanks.

F1 to me seems about fresh teebird level of stable. F2 is definitely less stable than a teebird, especially newer runs of it.

Interesting! From what seeing the F1 seems pretty stable. Looks like a short firebird. Marshall Street has the f2 more overstable than the teebird
How far do you throw to compare?

I know you're asking about Prodigy here, but two non-Prodigy recommendations: for more OS than a Teebird but still with some good distance, the Banshee does well. For more understable than a Teebird (a bit less finishing fade), a Pipeline is a really good disc.

For me, the Pipeline is between the Teebird and the TL/TL3 (and very nicely so). The TL starts to get in the FD and maybe Leopard3 arena.

Also to the thread, I haven't thrown the F1 or F2, but the F3 I got some time ago was in the Teebird/Pipeline area of flight. F3 is a nice disc; I should probably dig mine out and throw it some, in honor of this thread.

Prodigy doesn't really have a super beefy fairway speed disc. If you're set on prodigy you could find an old H1 which you will throw about fairway far because it is a brick. I throw F2s on holes between like 310-350. They have a good amount of fade, but don't have that laser flight of a teebird, even fresh ones would have a little wiggle. Newer runs are coming out weirdly understable and one I got I have to hyzer flip out of the box.

Depends on the power, the F3 is strangely more underatable than the F5.

I also wouldn't even worry about trying to find something between a Teebird and TL.. at that point just adjust your release

My F3 is more OS than my F5, but I have the sample size of exactly one of each.

I don't carry a Teebird, I go from the TL/FD/Leo3 right to the Banshee.

So would the F1 be more like a firebird or fd3 ish? F2 like a fresh champ teebird or pd?

How old h1?
