I want Prodigy to succeed... more options the better. Just not sure why they haven't got this memo?

The 5 or so Prodigy molds I had in my possession had something like "D3-4" written on the rim...
... do they not remember what they molded?
That is the dumb thing they do where they use a single number to denote the 3 digit plastic type number. So 4 is 400, but it’s confusing for everyone.

I haven't really been following this thread, but wow. I guess Dynamic signed some pros so we switched the default to bash Prodigy?

We'll I'm glad you said it and not me. I posted pics of some of my chalky ass Prodigy discs awhile back, somewhere on here. Apparently it basically only happened to me lol. I'm not here to bash them either, also won't be buying them ever again.

Forgot about that aspect of shelf life. A lot of the 400 plastic that we had in the store eventually got a white chalky layer on them after a few months of sitting. Prodigy told me that it's the plastic breaking down and leeching. Could explain why after a couple months of sitting, nobody would buy them until I sold them at cost. It's been a while since I've carried them so I don't know if that was ever solved.

Don't Prodigy discs fade to white pretty quickly too? Wasn't that a thing?

The white chalkiness comes off with brake cleaner, but so does the stamp.

They had a couple of runs that faded in color when exposed to sunlight. Apparently the UV protectant additive was missing.

To be fair though I’ve had a handful of Discmania S line discs that have done the same thing though.

The first couple months of Prodigy’s existence did them absolutely zero favors. Plastic felt awesome, but like mentioned before there were growing pains. D4 protos not being much different than D1 protos in stability, there were some overweight protos that weren’t legal, M1 proto wasn’t beefy at all and got retooled, M3 protos that were too beefy and became the M2 instead.

I think any of those could’ve been handled with minimum pushback, but they hyped themselves up too much initially. Second coming of Jebus throwing promised CE like plastic with a stacked team built on promises of massive growth. They were initially marketed as pro level golf discs and failed in that capacity. Their players were winning at launch, but not throwing their plastic…which wasn’t hidden very well.

They’ve got some nice plastic, and some of the molds are pretty decent, but right away expectations weren’t met given the hype and a lot of people immediately wrote them off. That’s just a big hole to dig out of, regardless of who you are.
