Default Prodigy F1

Advanced search only yielded a F1 vs Firebird thread but no standalone thread, how come there isnt more love for this mold? Ive been looking for a consistent overstable 1.8 cm (18mm) rim width mold to compliment my line up of Rivals and Patriots. Brother had one that he found and decided it didnt fit his game. Held it and noticed it felt like higher plh version of a Rival.

Anyone else bag these, if so what are your thoughts?

I throw a decent amount of Prodigy but not an F1 because I have a stack of Banshees. If I lost all my Banshees tomorrow I could bag an F1 & carry on. If you've ever thrown a Banshee then you have a general idea of what the F1 should be

Thanks for this info. I bag a Champion Banshee. If I threw Prodigy, I'd probably use an F1.

To the OP, methinks this is a perfect example of when someone said that Prodigy discs are good, but for each one of them, someone, somewhere makes it a little better. Prodigy really needs to get out there and do some marketing...

I've thrown them. Nice disc. I found the Resistor more comfortable, which is why I bagged it over the F1. Here's a video I made comparing 4 F series discs, might help you decide if its for you or not:

Love the F1. Its a firebird for those who don't have a firebird arm IMO. Not as overstable as the H1 or H2, but similar flight and easier to get distance.

Seriously. Luckily DGCR forums is less than 1% of the actual DG market although it is 80% of the DG trolls out there.

Lol, I think we should define this as the 1/80 rule. It's kind of like the 80/20 rule except for DGCR.

I don't get the hats, either. I love the prodigy F1. I disagree with those who call it a firebird. It's more a Viper. A souped up viper with a little more glide.
I have 2 F1's. one light 350 and one heavy 750. The light one flies very like the heavy one even though there is a 15g difference. Prodigy discs last forever, especially the 400 and 750.

I can say that most of the prodigy stuff has relatively high fade, especially when new, and they can be difficult for us to like when thrown with bad form or under-powered. The durable plastics can take a long time to break in, too. I assume that's the source of a lot the discontent. in general, I recommend going a bit lighter weight with prodigy than some other stuff.
