I'd heard rumors of them making a D series with closer to a max rim width, current D series is 2.3, stuff like the Legacy Cannon is 2.5. So that would be the Max moniker I assume?

Wonder what all this is about?
Just a WAG, but maybe they tried some new things and just put them all out there for sale. The good news is that Prodigy seems to be creating new discs for their pros, and ultimately for all of us.

Weird specs, they didn't flatten the rim depth on any of them, like they did with the X series.

Rim widths vary .1 cm from various OG, V2 and Max, but that can be attributed to cooling variations and pdga calipers. Since things like the destroyer are supposed to be 2.2 and are 2.3+ anyway. So I guess similar dimensions, different wing shapes?

The only real standout I see is for the D1 Max, the height fell 3mm. Other than that, the changes are tiny and inconsistent.

In a way, it looks like they are re-visiting the Proto D1.
If that’s the case, this has potential. Those Protos are my favorite distance driver by far.

They're claiming a slightly smaller rim width in the video... I'm interested.

After throwing the D1 Max a bit i have come to 2 conclusions:
1. it is less stable then the D1
2. it is still too OS for me to use for backhands.

Of course, the 2 I have are both max weight which does not help.

The top on the D1 Max looks completely different. Can you compare the two profiles?
