Default Prodigy 350G plastic not tacky in white?

I just got four 350G Pa3's in the mail, all white, because putters are supposed to be white. But they all feel exactly like KC Pro plastic, which is NOT what I want in a putter. My old yellow 350G Pa3 has a very tacky, almost rubbery feel, like a soft Discraft putter, but very stiff. And I recall it had that tackiness even when it was brand new.

My question is, does 350G have that soft velvety feel in colored plastics? I'm let down and confused.

I have 350G PA1s in white, green, and blue. You wouldn't be able to tell the difference between them in the dark. Stiff but with some tack.
The 300 series is more rubbery and stickier.

Yeah I've had some 350 White Pa3's that are super stiff and solid like a plate and some that were a little more "give" and tackier. I do think it depends on run probably. But yeah the 350 can be ROCK SOLID sometimes and its almost too much, I did get some 300's that were actually kinda stiff. So if you want that, look for some 300's and maybe youll find some firm 300 that are more that tacky 350 youre looking for. Prodigy is a lot of trial and error but if you find something it can be really good. I have about 20 Pa3's and funny enough I'm putting Daggers now so. we'll see. I may unload a bunch in the next year if I don't use them

I've got a white 350g PA4 that is stiff but still tacky. Really ideal plastic for putting. I've got 5 PA4's and 3 PA1's in 350g and only 1 of them disappointed me. It's a red 350g PA4 that is stiff like the others but has a slickness to it I don't like. Like a lot of KC Pro Aviars I've had. Overall 350g to me has been consistent and I'm thinking about getting some more PA4's.

Unfortunately I can't afford to keep buying putters and cross my fingers that I get a run that I like. Hopefully my friends will buy/trade for the Pa3's. There was a disc golf store about 50 miles away from me, but they closed shop recently:-( Ordering online can be such a nightmare. I want to FEEL them first.

I thought Jawbreaker was going to be the answer. Great grip, but not stiff like I was expecting.

It was so hard to find 4 Pa3's of the same weight and white color.

.....I have every excuse in the book for why I suck at putting, believe you me.....

I've arrived at the same opinion. Been working with Jawbreaker Bangers and Roaches over the past couple of months. I keep coming back to my 350g PA1's and 4's.

Marshall Street has a good Prodigy stock right now.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm going to call them in the morning.

Do you use Pa1's and Pa4's for different putts? How do they fly for putting?

Ahhhh the joys of Prodigy plastic. Buying it online is tough. Good call getting on the phone with MSt.

350 plastic does vary quite a bit but I'm in love with the stuff. I'm working in a white Pa2 thrower that is starting to get to that $$$ spot.
