Not much faith in Prodigy on here huh? Or is it that it's "cool" to bash them and we've got DG hipsters on our hands? The way I see it, any new products any company wants to put out with new ideas should be welcome, especially with all the talk we see on these forums about growing the sport. If it sucks, they'll either not make money or they'll redesign, but it takes failure to succeed in pretty much anything. Solar powered glowing poles sounds awesome.

We're just taking a piss out of them after their inauspicious beginning. I'm sure Prodigy is doing fine, you can put away your knight's armor now.

I personally hope Prodigy does well, but you hafta admit, leaving out the UV additive and having discs quickly bleach out in the sun (then try to market it as something "special") qualifies for the "Smooth Move, Ex-Lax" award.

I'm not really crusading here or anything, just taking the sport a little too seriously apparently. On a lighter note, all future crusading will be done in armor properly suited for the internet.

Nahh, It'll just force you to kick your bag over.

But seriously, People complain all the time about baskets. You hear " Baskets need to be smaller to weed out the bad players" or " Baskets need to be bigger to catch putts better, or " Baskets need a million chains to stop fly through". I welcome any innovation any DG companies are coming out with. Yeah, some might be gimmicky, but whatever. Its not like you have to purchase a Prodigy Basket to play the sport.
