No. It’s like a Wraith or a Surge (but with much more flashing, I’d bet).

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

300g was a pretty good tennis racquet by Dunlop about 20 years ago. No idea what the different plastic types are from Prodigy, no interest to figure it out, and have never bought/will never buy one of their discs for that reason.

I get the sentiment of disliking prodigy naming, but isn’t it all a little nonsensical? A disc called the panther doesn’t tell you anything about what it does. It all requires context.

No it doesn't, but for whatever reason, I do better with names than I do the Prodigy naming.

Cool names and stamps sell well: better than good discs with crap names and stamps I'd wager.

The pearl clutching ITT and elsewhere over the Prodigy naming system is among the silliest things I've seen on here that wasn't posters being intentionally obtuse (for the record, by the tone of the replies, I'm not sure this isn't that). I throw exactly one Prodigy disc and have for several years, as it is a proto stamped PA4. Not because of the name or stamp, but because it has a unique and essential flight for me. I feel like people here largely bash Prodigy, and some of that may be deserved, but using the name as a basis to take a shot at them is absolutely ridiculous. It's no less intuitive than any other company's scheme. Yeesh.

Hmmm, DD3... is that a Dynamic Disc and if so, which one is #3?
