I don't think it did at all. This is the first I have ever heard of this spat. I think you may be projecting a bit.

I know big PP fans that stayed with Prodigy when she left.

The last couple years there was a market loss here in East Tennessee, but I think that had more to do with MVP and Discraft moving in. Trilogy is the big loser here.

This summer I am seeing more players picking Prodigy back up. Will is back in promoter role hardcore and Chris Dickerson has crushed everyone who challenges him on local courses.

Will and Chris make me want to like Prodigy.

^^Dickerson seems like a cool cat. Helluva player too.

I'm not 'projecting' anything, just stating an opinion based upon what I observed at the time. The PP/Prodigy split was very acrimonious, and well known and documented. It may or may not have contributed to Prodigy's issues, but I mentioned it as a possible factor.

Will's injury and time away from the game may have contributed to that market loss in Tennessee, and I agree that him returning in a promoter role may help Prodigy a lot. And your comment about Will and Chris reaffirm my assertion that Prodigy needs to promote its pros (a lot) more.

About 3 years ago, two locals were sponsored by Prodigy and did what new sponsored players do... They unloaded their 'other' brands on non-sponsored players. I bought a bunch of Rocs, Tbirds and Jokeris cheap. I still throw Rocs and Tbirds.

I have never tossed a Prodigy.

Thanks Prodigy for getting Rocs and Tbirds in my hands.

Imagine having the opportunity to buy a cycle of Rocs and Teebirds for cheap... that's awesome.

I see Will, KJ, Dickerson, Prodigy hyping up the FX-2. Prodigy released a "behind the disc" sort of video with Dickerson, which I'm happy to see him get a little more spotlight and input on discs, but I still don't know how this thing is supposed to fly. I think I saw something about it fits between the existing F and new H series, speed wise? Does anyone know if it's supposed to have a CD2/Undertaker kind of flight? It didn't look like it had the stability of a Thunderbird based no the one video I saw on KJ's instagram.

Sounds like they're trying to replace the H-series altogether.

The whole V2 naming scheme is hard to commit to no matter how good the molds may be.

Totally agree. Adding to it, there are still 'original' H-series discs out there, and they are very 'meh' molds at best (and pretty darn bad at worst). These news names get the molds completely away from the 'H' name, which IMHO is a very good idea...
