All I know is that I am in absolute love my my 350g pa-1s. I like the 300 too. I have an ace one a firm champ-like proto pa-1. That 350g is the perfect firm with the perfect amount of tacky for a driving putter to rip on.

I really need to try some of the mids in 350g

I've only used the 400 plastic, and only the earlier runs, and I've found that plastic to be durable in all the right ways. It never gets cut or gouged, the surface just gets scuffed up. Similar to the old runs of Z in that way.

The grip of the 400 series plastic is also very good. Even when brand new, it is never slick. Has a nice tacky feel, and then as the surface wears there is a little more texture but the grip remains very consistent.

Overall the 400 is one of my very favorite disc materials. My dream scenario is Innova learning to copy that plastic, and making their driver molds in the 400 series material.

I have never thrown a Prodigy disc before, but we are starting to have a stronger and stronger Prodigy presence over here. I received a disc from a tournament a month or so ago, and I was hoping someone could help me confirm what I have. On the inside rim, it says 173H1-4. I'm assuming that is a 173g H1 in 400 plastic? My biggest confusion is when I go on the website, it only lists the H1V2. Is that actually what this is? Thanks!

Your assumption is correct, it's the original H1 mold in 400 plastic.

Old H1 mold is ridiculously overstable, they re-tooled it to be more like a felon than a manhole cover.

400 plastic is sort of their "base" premium plastic. I like it better than the more expensive 400G, but it is a little softer while 400G is a bit more star-like in it's stiffness. 400 also will take quite a while to beat in.

The original H lineup was more overstable and less glider than the newly released v2 molds. Prodigy was really lacking some mid speed distance drivers for people who can throw 375-400 but not 500. The original H molds are now discontinued to my knowledge.
