So it sounds like the H-Series has the biggest variance in feel and configuration (less the M5) than any other class of the Prodigy discs? The hybrid tagline makes sense then. I thought the H2 was crazy overstable, can't imagine the H1. This H3 sounds like a pretty cool disc though. I bet we'll see this being thrown by a lot of Prodigy pros this year.

H3 is definitely a winner. I'm interested in comparing it to my F1. I'm thinking it will be a lot shorter.

On the topic of the H series, I actually really love the H4 too. It is such an interesting disc to me. I love ripping it on a hyzer flip and having it flip up, fly straight and then start turning AND then when it loses speed it comes out of the turn and finishes left. I took it out of the bag for Memorial, but it will be in my bag 9/10 tournaments.

The h1 is beautiful. It's about as placement as you can get without throwing a rock.

I think a rock has more glide

I've been wanting to try the h4 but stiff plastic in the winter doesn't work for me. If it's made in 400 soon I'll definitely give it a shot, especially if they end up in the upper 160s.

Agree that the 750 plastic is not the best for this arctic winter we've had. It was great while in AZ, in the warmer climate. Hoping that lower weights and different plastics (in all molds) will be coming out sooner than later.

The real question is: will we see it being thrown by anyone that isn't a Prodigy pro?

I feel like a lot of the Prodigy hype has subsided...which is a shame bc their discs are pretty great. One thing that I really respect about Prodigy is how their molds are pretty unique vs. most of the competition. They have some really great discs that aren't just clones of other popular molds. Who has released a beaded driver in the last 5 years?! (Besides Gateway who loves beaded drivers)

I'll definitely be giving one of these a toss.

Got a couple of days testing with my proto H3s that Will gave us at the Memorial. It is going right in the bag. Hit an ace with it yesterday (maybe the first H3 ace ever??). A step down in stability from the H2. Was expecting a bit more glide out of it but once I figured it out I really enjoyed it. I'll be bagging H1-3. Liked the H4 but has a very similar flight to my f3 so I don't bag it.

I have significantly more power sidearm than backhand (425 max golf distance BH, 475-500 FH). Thrown backhand it won't stand up for me and has a predictable fade. Will probably use it in the gap between f1 and D series distance (350ish). Thrown forehand it will stand up and glide a bit before fading. It was able to handle a bunch of power without flipping and also handled a 15-20 mph headwind no problem.
