They should do a clean sweep of their lineup. They've had so many re-do molds & name changes. Obviously keep a lot of what's worked but their catalogue & mold history are a bit confusing. Slim things down & make the brand more approachable.

It seems like they have been/are cleaning house, but they're not officially announcing anything going OOP while they just keep adding molds, lines, different versions of molds, etc. The cleaning they're doing is being overshadowed by additions. I saw no reason for the base line discs they put out or the "Max" D series. And calling the new mid the MX-3, basically the M3 with a bead, doesn't match why this new fairway mold is the FX-2. It's deeper and faster than the F series and [I really, reaallllyyy hope] it doesn't have a bead.

someone on FB posted saying they got one recently & that it flew 9/4/0/3. Sounds like a winner.

If this ends up being Prodigy’s Thunderbird I’m in trouble. A Thunderbird in 400G plastic sounds too good to be true. Cale’s recent snippets showing the flight appear to be more like 9/5/0/3, which is perfect Luster Thunderbird territory.

Not saying I know anything more than anyone else, let's face it, I probably don't.

Whyzerowl on Instagram and I were shooting back and forth, I made a fun comment about Prodigy needing an Anax-y disc in 400 plastic (LOVE the feel of 400, but only throw the F3).

He replied and said "FX-2 Is coming"...

Maybe a 10 4/5/6 0 2/3)??

Id like to get my hands on one, just to try I know that much.

Never thrown an Anax, but the H1v2 seems to already fill that 10/11 OS driver slot for them. It's certainly not Firebird or FD3 overstable, which seems like a hole they might have now with the original H series OOP. I'm hoping the rim depth/width on the FX-2 is much closer to a 8-9 speed, not 10-11.

I played with someone throwing one yesterday and tossed his once myself. IMO more OS than a thunderbird with similar speed, faster and less OS than a firebird. People who throw hard are going to love it.

Anax are probably my most go to driver. The glide on them is absolutely unreal. They're not quite as OS as advertised but turning them over is... In my experience impossible.

Having bagged both H1V2'S and Anax's at the same time the H1v2's are more OS, and have significantly less glide than the Anax. Maybe an H2v2 with more glide?

But who knows until we all get our hands on them I guess. I love speculation! Lol
