Prodigy always seem to be more over stable then advertised IMO. There plastic feel great seems to hold up well. I don't mined there naming system. I think they need to have more average arm speed players throwing there molds before they give them a rating. While i am sure Will's 500' arm can turn it over easily my 320' arm can't. With that said i am currently bagging a 400 F3 and a 400 PA4.

Blunt edge? Like the original lousy H-series discs?

I agree, though I don't see my H3v2 flying as fast or far as my speed 11's. I'd put all the H discs at 8-9 with the newer v2's at 9-10. I'm still going to buy an H5 at some point. After getting a very heavy H3v2, I'll be waiting for a light H5, preferable in 400g. And I'm sure I'll be getting a lightweight H3v2 at some point...

I threw the H5 last Sunday one time here in N Idaho. I loved the feel of the disc Im my hand. I put it at a 9 speed. It had great glide and turned over nicely without showing signs of crashing.

Distance for this shot was ~300. I would normally throw a Renagade for this type of shape but the H5 was impressive and will throw it again for sure.

My max distance is ~380-400.

So, I've been able to get a couple rounds in with the H5 and I am really liking it! It's just a control driver version of my beloved M4. So amazing in the woods. Easy hyzerflips for long tunnels with very little lateral movement, incredibly mild fade, easily turns over for long anhyzers to help my game's weak forehand. It's a great addition for me.

Most definitely a 8-9 speed, not a 10-11. It's closer to a beat up FD or F7 than a TD or Roadrunner, while still not as slow/short as fairways. It's closest comparison that I would offer would be the Roadrunner. It can easily be pushed for rollers, but has enough HSS that it doesn't just flip and burn into accidental rollers like some others I have tried in the past.

For slower arms looking for great control in the woods with hyzerflips and turnovers, this is a fantastic disc to try out. I max out at about 400', but most of my power drives are closer to the 350'-375' range after back surgery and nerve damage. An understable driver like this is indispensable in the woods for me. The ability to control release angles and not have to worry about a disc fading out too strong and leaving me in thick brush or trees, or to turn over a driver to get some distance moving left to right without leaning on my inconsistent forehand.

I'm a fan.

And for those asking, I'd give it about a 9/5/-3/1

What weight(s) and plastic(s) are you throwing?

All these comparisons are at max weight except the M4s. The M4s I bag/stock range from 174-180g. My main throwing M4 is a 176g. Also, my H5 scales at 176g, penned at 175g. All my Roadrunners and F7s are 175g, most of my FDs are as well. I do have some 165-168g FDs that I use occasionally as well, but typically use use a beat up 174g FD for the understable slot. I've just recently started testing a 175g Color Glow Champion Leopard 3 for understable fairway shots, but I'm not totally sold if that will make the bag this summer or not.

How does this compare to the Discraft Heat? It sounds similar.

I'm curious, too. On paper the flights look the same.

I'm sure they feel different at the rim, but otherwise very similar. I'll pick up H5 when they sell it in 750. Until then I'll chuck my heats.
