I've had my M4 long enough to understand it.
Most people are saying the right things.
It is very similar to the Buzzz SS in shape and somewhat in flight. What I find with the M4 is that it will hold a straight line better. It moves understable but not dramatically unless you really crank it. It will often fade back as well. It's predictable and I feel very confident with it.

I also throw the M2. Over the last couple weeks it has come to light that the M2 is more overstable than I thought it was. It does go well with the M4. I thought a lot about getting an M3. But I can make due with what I have for sure.

All in all, the prodigy line-up is awesome. It keeps growing for me

That's not a fair comparison though. As with most Lat discs a light and heavy behave differently.

I've got maybe all of 3 throws on an M4 at the moment but it seems similar to a Tursas in terms of speed and potentially glide but a little bit more HSS and LSS.
It does straight really quite well.

Mines a tank though at 180. I normally throw mids in the 172-176 range.

I will give you that. The M4 initially - and I have only had a field session with it, so there's that - is flying a little less finnicky than my old max weight GL Fuse. Closer to a 177 Opto, but still a little more forgiving. Glide is on par though even with the higher weights.

Hmm, and color too? I recalled the green TP Tursas I swapped to you, you had mentioned you found the green ones more US. I tested the theory and picked up a heavy purple one (180g) and I did find it more like the VIP I have (175 orange) than the green TP you now have, by my recollection. I use the VIP because mine's easier to see. That said, I've slowly been working an M1 into more roles and it has become my goto OS mid, complementing the Warhip and Tursas perfectly. As much as I enjoy the M1, I've been hard pressed to test any of the others, being as happy as I am with the current trifecta. From your description, it seems the M4 maybe somewhere between Warship and Tursas. I'm not sure I have a use for that atm, but if yours is outside your normal range and you find it getting little love, hit me up for another swap

Sounds good. I still need a bit more time with it. As it stands I'm trying to track down some F series drivers to try out. Life Sport didn't have any and I don't see Prodigy listed on Don's so I'm not sure if Scott has any.

I've been trialing an F7 in 300 plastic as a true US fairway and it's fitting the bill. I've got a 400 on the way to consolidate the slot. I can't see my Amp ever leaving my bag, but the F7 nibbles on its duties. As far as getting them, I've had great service from Marshall Street. I've received 7 orders from them this summer so far and all were exact and arrived duty free within a week. I actually wonder if discs are exempt, because they write the full value on them (not as gifts). Depending on size of order, the shipping price works out to about $2/disc. Pretty great these days (to Canada). I did mention to Scott about MVP/Prodigy, etc and he brought in a small order of MVP. You might mention to him you'd be interested to try some Prodigy, perhaps the additional voice will help him decide to stock it.

So ive been looking into getting some more m4's and it seems like they are harder to find in 400s plastic. Were they only run in 400s for protos and x-outs?

Most sites only have M4's for sale in the 400g plastic. Whats up with that?
