This past Friday, Dogleg Disc Golf made it again ad a feature on Go Ham Disc Golf’s “This Week in Disc Golf (TWIDG)”!
Fellow Dogleg contributor, Jeremiah, had two posts this week that made Go Ham’s weekly video. The first of the two was Jeremiah’s disc review of the new Prodigy D1 and D4. The second featured Dogleg post last week was the Disc Golf Addict–a pretty funny list you should check out.
Great job Jeremiah and a big thanks again to Big John at Go Ham!
Watch Go Ham’s TWIDG below:
|I will use the post to drive more user feedback. Take my brief review with a grain of salt, as I was forced to play with my non-dominant hand… still recovering from shoulder surgery.|
Most, if not all, proto D1 & D4 discs currently come in max weight. The D1 is meant to be very fast and over stable, without the dreaded meat hook at the end. The flight path was narrowed significantly… reducing the side-to-side travel down the fairway. The inner lip has been rounded as part of Prodigy’s patented Easy Release Technology. The easy release is meant to reduce both grip lock and blisters. (Soap Box Rant: Innova’s most recent production of discs (late 2012) has a micro-bead on the inner lip that is extremely sharp and difficult to release.)
I am consistently getting more distance (20-40 ft) on every throw with both the D1 and D4. The D1 flies over stable, as intended. Prodigy claims the D1 flies well into a headwind as it does with a tailwind. I have yet to play in these conditions.
The D4 is designed as a very fast, under stable driver. In my experience, this disc is not under stable. I would actually classify it as slightly over stable. Obviously, I am not getting a solid pop on my release, but I was expecting something along the lines of a fast Innova Roadrunner or Mamba (Definitely not the case). I figure a 150 class disc will make the D4’s alleged under stability more apparent.
Overall I am happy with the purchase and look forward to throwing more Prodigy plastic. Both of these discs throw very well and get max-d with every toss.
What are your comments / reviews?
I’m sure a lot of you guys may have already seen this video, but wanted to post the link for those that have not. I’m pretty stoked to find out too that their disc manufacturer is based here in Georgia!
I’ll try my best to get a hold of one of the D1 and/or D4 drivers coming out this month, January. We’d absolutely love to do a review on a Prodigy Disc! If you happen to get one, let us know too! They will be debuting as a limited release for now. They said they will hopefully have them all available to everyone by late Spring.
If you’d like to get your hand on some of these Prodigy discs, here’s how:
- Go to Prodigy Disc’s Facebook Page at http://on.fb.me/UwhIGm
- Have your local vendor send them their contact info via Facebook
- Prodigy will then reach out to them to set up an account
