This thread is going to make me give my F3 another shot. I had the same experiences with it as Pwingles. Not very consistent or trustworthy as the F5. I've also been using the F2 a ton and it's starting to get a little turn before the strong fade. A few more months and I believe it will be my furthest and most trusted flying fairway driver. Kinda like how the F3 is for the OP. I'll probably continue not liking the F3 and just beat in F2's for that F3 flight.

Bump for plastic discussion. I've been going down the Prodigy wormhole a bit lately and I've been mostly liking what I'm finding. The plastic is REALLY nice.

So I've seen that the F3 is available in 350g which is, in my opinion, a super premium KC Pro type plastic. I've been playing around with PA3s in this blend and I love it. Since the F3 is supposedly Prodigy's teebird-like disc I'm wondering how it would work out in this $$$ 350g plastic blend. I'm also interested in trying this plastic out for the M3 as a direct competitor to the McPro Roc3.

Does anyone throw these in 350g that can comment?

I can't comment on the 350g, but I'll add to earlier thread sentiments that the F3 is a really good disc. Great compliment with the F5, and IMHO better for me than the Teebird (YMMV). The F3 is part of my "All-Prodigy" bag that I take out from time to time.

I have a yellow 400 F3 at 166g that I picked up recently and I'm loving it so far. I was thinking (hoping) that a 350g F3 would wear in to become a beautiful flyer. Just based on the way I've seen my 350g PA3s wearing in. It's really a fantastic thing this 350g plastic. Rigid, smooth yet tacky, takes dings well, has good glide. It kind of reminds me of Gateways new SGS in that it has that old school KC Pro feel to it. I like it a lot. Seems like an F3 in this stuff could be a really great thing..... Like a Teebird if you could get one in KC Pro (not the KC Pro champ stuff that is collectable but like 10x KC Roc stuff). Ordering one in 3...2...1....

I've had 3 F3's and 5 F5's w/ various plastics. For me F5 flies with more HSS and less LSS than my F3; I can achieve an anhyzer easier with the F3, but the F5 will hold it longer. The F3 is actually feels more forgiving of a weak throw than the F5 if I'm looking for left-to-right movement.

I have a 350g F5 that's fantastic for turnovers; its my most confident anhyzer disc right now. My only issues with the 300 / 350 series is tree hits can add up very quickly, to the point where in wooded areas that I want to throw my 350g the most, I'm very reluctant too. Conversely I bought a very worn looking 750 F5 and it flies almost like new. I've got a couple FD's I'm toying with now, and I think the long term battle will come down to F3 vs FD.

Cool man thanks for the info. I was looking at that 350g F5 too. I just love the 350g baseline so much. I'm really intrigued with how it would cycle for the F series if you had a mini stack to cycle in. I haven't ordered yet but I want to. Just not sure if the better cycle would be F5 or F3. Very hard to decide!

F5 might make the better cycle because it will cover more shots but I'm pretty new to these molds and 350g so it's hard to say. I do know that I LOVE my PA3s and Pa4s in 350g. I also kind of want to try the M3 in this stuff. Wish they would make the M1 in it too. I have an M1 in 350s and its awesome but I prefer the firm slick feel of 350g and the way it buffs out with a towel.

When I threw the F3 (granted a while ago and not in 350g plastic), it definitely flew a lot like a TL. It had more turn than a Teebird out of the box and a pretty gentle fade. I think the F2 is Prodigy's Teebird, not the F3. If I were cycling, I'd get an F1 or F2, not an F3. The F3 has too much turn out of the box, so I can imagine it would be even less stable in baseline plastic and turn into a roller pretty quickly. I don't know if there are any F1's or F2's in 350g plastic though. There was a limited run of F1's in 300 plastic (I know because I bought one), but 300 beats up REALLY fast. My F1 went from Banshee stability to Eagle stability within a few rounds. Anyway, good luck and let us know how it goes.
