Default Prodigy Players' NON-Prodigy Discs In Their Bags

I'm curious if anyone knows what NON-Prodigy discs Prodigy players still use?
Mainly, does Nikko still drive with wizards?

I remember Will used a firebird to win a tourney.

Are they all Prodigy'd out now?

I would assume they can have a mix bag as the catalog of discs is still fairly small, and it appears they are more a about players winning and promoting the company then all about the discs.

Well I'm no pro. But I lately have carried a lot of prodigy. But a couple discs I can not get away from are ROADRUNNER, and other speed 9-10 discs VALK, BEAST, SURGE, and my Crush for stable shots with a reliable hook.

The other thing with them is that unless you get up close and personal with them to actually be able to see the disc you really don't know (although most prodigy discs/plastic is unique enough in its look to not be confused with something else) but I've seen PP selling her old challs that had the stamps wiped and Prodigy stamped on them.

Granted I know its just a stamp and with a disc with a tourney stamp you can't tell what mold it is immediately by looking at it, BUT i feel stamping one manufacturers disc with another manufacturers stamp is going too far and wish the PDGA would make some type of rule about that being illegal, just out of principle. I think if you want to have your own custom stamp made and have your discs stamped with that instead of inking them or whatever that is one thing (meeting the marking/indentifying requirement) but not crossing brands.

I think if another Company found out they were stamping their discs with Prodigy stamps they could file a lawsuit. They are misrepresenting the product.

On what legal grounds? If you own a disc, I would think that you are free to write whatever you want on it.

Granted, it was in May, but Nikko was throwing a highlighter green/yellow destroyer at Master's Cup. Took me by surprise since the distance drivers were the first discs prodigy put out so I figured Nikko would've had time to get used to them. Then again, nothing flies as great as a stable destroyer.
