I think you're right here. It's the mold that's approved, not the plastic. They could use any of the PAs in any plastic. I know that if I could keep using my Wizards until they released their "clone", I would do it too.

I know Nikko putted Magics for a while and could use a PA4, but he's primarily a Wizard putter.

Someone may have already said this, but the PA4 is a Magic. Not an exact copy, but clearly a clone. The PA1 doesn't have a bead so I have no idea what its supposed to be "like". The truth is, I think the PA1 is pretty original as far as litters go. I would assume the 2 would be Wizard-esque?

So I am not much for driving with a putter, and I do have a noodle arm, but I picked one of the up from Hyzerbomb at a tourney and I can put it out there with my buzz consistantly. I actually really liked it alot. Not a putter for my bag, but an interesting choice for short holes or narrow holes off the tee.

For me, it flew like a P2 does, pretty beefy, not turn unless you torque it.
For ref. i was throwing a 170 400s PA1 red. To me it feels like a bb aviar in the hand, pretty familiar. Except instead of a bead its just sorta notched. Almost like a shark. Just an angular thing at the bottom that mimicks a bead. At any rate, for throwing and approaches its gonna be nice. Dunno if i could putt with it.

Looks like the PA4 is finally coming out in some other cool new plastics. 350G and 750. The PA4 stock at most of my favorite online vendors has been really low so I hope Prodigy is going to start the production lines again.

Would be interested to hear what people think of the 350g PA4 - I've got two identical ones coming and intend to replace my 300s PA4's which are two years old.

Please report immediately on those two. I love my 400s PA4 for a lot of reasons. Would like a 350g for long putts.

My 350g PA4's are a complete joy to use. The 350g reminds me of KC Pro plastic. I love the stiffer feel. I carry 3 of them. 2 for short putting and 1 for longer putts. I've also got a 750 for drives off the tee and shots where I know I may hit a tree. The 750 is possibly the best feeling premium plastic out there. It's like a tacky version of Discraft's Ti plastic. I like it a lot more than the gummy 400. Good job Prodigy.

Just completed my first round with my 171g PA4 in 300 plastic. I like the feel of the PA4, and the squared-off edge reminds me of the Innova Colt (PA4 rim is just a bit deeper). I really liked the grip, not too deep, not quite as shallow as the Colt.

The PA4 putted very straight from inside the circle, but doesn't have quite the glide the Judge does so the PA4 take some getting used to. I tried a few upshots from around 75-100 feet out, and because of the nice grip I got some nice throws and parked within 6 feet of the basket.

Ergo, I'm looking at getting a 400 plastic PA4 for durability for upshots. I likely will continue to use the Classic Blend Judge for in-the-circle putting, but if the 400 PA4 feels and shoots like the 300 PA4, my Lucid Judge might be relegated to the 2nd string.
