Interesting, D1 is the over-stable driver, right? I would have thought the D3 or D4 would be max distance (since you can turn them over).

Yeah, almost every one of them sounds interesting. Especially the fact that you can get them in sub 160 weights without gimmicky plastic.

Um well the plastic looks good and um they show some people throwing nice shots and um well um.
I'm not trying to be picky but all of these Prodigy videos have been hard to watch because of people saying um and uh constantly, they need to write a script or do multiple takes.
On the plus side the discs look soft like jelly plastic but they didn't sound squishy when they hit together.

Dgdave, can you discuss probable costs for these discs when they become available?

it's like they just grabbed a camera and thought what the hell? why not? they don't seem to be doing themselves any favors, but it seems like people are eating it up.

Yeah I probably sound like a jerk but they have to be spending a lot of money and companies need to establish themselves early. It seems like the players just want to promote the discs and the company isn't ready yet. I know it's early but I thought the Prodigy launch would include a flashy website with tons of videos, pictures, specs, plastics etc etc.

I heard a lot of finger pop in those throws. Dave do you get a lot of slip outs with yours?

I'm with ya. I get how they're all excited, but I'm hoping Prodigy tells them to tone it down a little bit with the "amateur" videography...
They are sitting on this mountain of opportunity right now, but it has a shelf life of time and patience.
