Default Naming convention cancelled; moved to online only.

It doesn't help that Prodigy has the worst naming scheme in disc golf, and has continued to make it even more confusing and unmarketable.

Prodigy can't compete now because of their own mistakes. I don't get this "underdog" take.

The naming scheme is the primary reason I don’t throw their discs. I get that it’s modeled after ball golf, but when each club/disc slot has various options across the slot, it becomes a little much, and that’s before all the disc revisions they’ve made.

H1V2 means nothing to me. Is that an HVAC unit?

Meteor is memorable and distictive. HIV2, HVAC, H1X and R2D2 are not distinguishable in my brain.

To your point....kind of, I do have a Buzzz SS in the bag. But, the SS tells you exactly what it does.

I have hardly any prodigy. I inderstand the names as well as I understand any other brand disc names. Anyone could understand them if we wanted to.

Every time I hear someone say that the prodigy naming scheme is easy to understand they have to spend 47 minutes explaining what the hell 400g H2v2 means…

There are putters, approach, mids, fairways, control drivers, distance drivers. Just like every company. Instead of renaming the Kong into Zeus, they call it the second version. V2. That seems simple. Bigger numbers means more turn. If you’re unfamiliar with… Axiom, say, all their disc names are confusing. Until you learn them. You have to memorize the difference between a Tenacity and a Crave. You don’t have to memorize a F2 is fairway and a D2 is a distance.

Again, I’m not a Prodigy fan or anything. Not one prodigy disc I bag. I own a D2 (2nd most stable Distance driver) and a P model S (which is a Putter that is Stable, lol)

Sorry for digress!
