Good to see the disc logo isn't quite as dumb as those shirts that show up from a google search of "disc golf prodigy."

Everyone, I'd assume.

Also a big "A" as in Alabama

beginning to think there might be some truth to the Prodigy rumor......

In case you want to read the thread on reddit, but haven't used reddit before, just go to reddit.com/r/discgolf for the disc golf "sub-reddit" (disc golf section). There are only one or two "rumor" threads, but the one with the pics is near the top of the list. (I hope I didn't break TOS by posting an external link. If I did, I'll remove it ASAP).

Looks more like the Elder Sign from Lovecraft lore:

I'm most interested in the D3 & D4 based on the approval text on www.pdga.com. But if the lesser numbers are longer and more controllable or at least more wind tolerant than the Forces i use in headwinds they might be great so wait and see...
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Very similar measurements for 4 different discs. For comparison...

Destroyer 21.1 1.4 1.2 16.7 2.2 5.7 30.50 10.66
Katana 21.2 1.8 1.2 16.3 2.5 5.7 26.25 10.32
Wraith 21.1 1.4 1.2 16.9 2.1 5.7 29.50 8.85

Innova drivers have way more variety, I wonder if similarity in rim feel will be a good thing for pros throwing them, since they will all feel very similar in the hand, more consistent releases, etc..

In general, looks like the D# should be very similar in rim feel to the Destroyer, just a slightly wider wing. Unless they have a source of better plastic, or some other design aspect that isn't yet apparent, I would not expect these discs to be any better than what is out there already...same old same old.

Did they partner up with Lightning or something? Nice mold names.

^^^
Make a bunch of high speed drivers without the benefit of a distribution network.
They don't have a website.
They pay their team, but do 95% of disc golfers even care?
The video on the Prodigy facebook page is boring and fails to deliver on the hype.
meh....
