I was lazy about it and FB messaged them and they hand picked out everything I wanted!
Even sent me a pic when I asked.
Still better than tracking down a dude that used to (maybe still does?) work for Clearwater and hoping he feels like responding to you, lol.

Most companies choose names that give you zero indication as to how a disc should fly.

Prodigy's system is simple and informative. I don't throw them anymore but that's something I felt they did right.

You really need to know the company first in order to know this though. Sure, the letters make sense, but just with just about every other company, lower numbers are straighter flying while higher numbers are more overstable.

I think the disc names are ok, but i hate that the plastic names are numbered.

The normal naming convention of 'plastic type - disc type' just sounds silly (400G D4 for example, compared to Star Boss)

Even though i Have a bunch of Harps and I like it a lot, I chose westside because every other disc was Meh. Their distance drivers #'s are all off.....Basically I like ALL makers of discs, but honestly TRILOGY discs drivers are NOT my cup of tea....though the Sheriff seems to be a winner, we'll see.

The faster you go, the harder it is to control so it makes sense that a lot of drivers "flop" with the general public. Above speed 9, you find less stable drivers become more popular, unless a noob ends up content with every drive being a hyzer line. Too US and the average player is all over the map. If I were starting up a new company, I'd be making drivers "just like" the Wraith, etc too if I wanted to stay in business.

I agree that their intro marketing choices were not done well at all. I only have experience with their putters and I love them because they are low profile, beadless (except PA3) and the plastics are awesome.

I also agree that a lot of what they're producing (along with all the other newer companies) are Discraft/Innova clones. Just the state of things today.

I voted Trilogy, Prodigy, and MVP. Trilogy's plastics seem to quickly lose their out-of-the-box characteristics which does not work for me as I buy durable plastics so that they will stay similar in how they fly for a long time. Prodigy has all sorts of issues that I'm not going to even start on them. MVP's discs seem to be extremely nose sensitive which ment that my shots were all over the course, though they do make good OH discs. I didn't vote Axiom because for some strange reason I dont have the same problem with their discs as I do with MVP's.

Clearwater dissipating left the door open, I am glad Discs Unlimited stepped up, they will have a new customer in me now.
