Default Where can one buy prodigy disc? Who can find them for 15??

don't champ discs sell for 13-14 new?

why do i keep seeing the prodigy discs sell for more like 17-20?

just saying two D4 for 40 or three champ katanas for 42?

what is actual retail price of these???

where are they cheap?

Substitute Roc3's for Katanas and you'll understand.

This happens with hot new molds all the time.

Retailers taking advantage of the hype. Pretty sure they are getting them for 8 bucks a pop and marking them up to 20. Meh, I'm over Prodigy already.

This... But reading the nonsense does give me something to do during the slow season (work)!

Taking advantage of the hype means selling hundreds of them weekly at $16 or whatever their average price point's gonna be. I'd love to take advantage of the hype like that. Not possible right now.

As it stands, a handful of dealers got a handful of discs to make "publicly available" so that Team Prodigy could actually use their gear in a tournament. Dealers pricing these high should be seen as more of an anti-scalper measure, rather than trying to cash in.

To be honest it looks more like we'd do a giveaway of some sort. I can't market 50 discs... we'd archive 50 like it's nothing. We have 10+ golfers on staff.. if we can buy ONE each that's a huge dent. My guess is, we get 50 discs... maybe 5 of those TOPS would go to the public. And at that point, it's better PR as a giveaway than trying to sell 'em for any price.

Supply and demand.
I can't blame a retailer for making a little extra on the Produgy disc rollout.
Sooner or later, the supply will outstrip demand and you'll see the prices "settle" into a normal state.
Until then, keep searching.
Somebody's bound to sell them for a reasonable price eventually.
Like juju, I'm over Prodigy.
I'll just wait and try somebody else's, like I did with the Mamba, Lace, Wedge, Trak, Axis, Archon, etc.

in a webcast last week they said that all of them currently are stamped as protos and there will then be ones stamped first runs, then after that regular production ones so my guess is that the main logo as it is will likely stay unless they decide to shrink it down to like innova size. I really dont know what they have planned. Just the proto/first run thing was said. The rest is speculation.

The picture on Clearwater didn't have the word proto on the stamp I didn't think. Can't find those pics now that they've sold out
