Default D5

Does anyone know about the Prodigy D5? I had never heard of it, but it is in the PDGA Disc Approval PDF.

The only main difference between the D5, and D4 is that the D5 has a disc height of 1.6cm compared to 1.9 of the D4. The D5 is the only disc that has a rim width of 2.4cm. The rest are 2.3.

I would assume that it would be more understable than the D4.

I would assume that too, but usually there is a bunch of hoopla about a new disc. I haven't heard a thing.

Maybe the D5 will actually be understable. I can't find an understable D4 anywhere and I have bought 4 now.

I bought only 1 D4 (First Run stamp) and was feeling the same way. Not understable

Plastic is awesome, but how it molded up was disapointing. Looking forward to maybe trying a D5 when they come out.

Really!? Mines a first run and I throw it on an almost 90 degree hyzer and I still can't trust it to come back. I throw it around 430 for reference; if it comes back.

My proto D4 is under-stable. I have to throw it with a slight hyzer so it doesn't turn and burn on me. Which type of plastic are the protos made of? Which type of plastic are your D4s?

The protos are 400s. I'm throwing the 400G. However, I have bought a 400s D4 and it too was slightly overstable.

I had a proto 169 D4.
It didn't last in my bag...I didn't find it all that understable.
I've been liking the D3 though...enough to make me want to try other molds.

The D5 might be interesting but that is an awfully big wing
