The more i've field tested discs the less i like flippy discs like Sidewinders, light Vulcans or even max weighted ones that aren't really top flight long, my super quickly and easily broken in Rampages and a Cannon, Katanas of the flippy kind, the majority of Kings and a slew of Blizzards. I have different weight and shaped Zero G Quasars and the lighter one with the higher PLH is much more HSS and controllable and looong. Guess which one i use? The D4 sounds like it falls into that category and i've donated many of those kinds of discs away because i have little use for them. Control and reliability across different conditions over distance for me. That is why i'm more interested in the D3. Maybe the D2 also.
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.

How consistent have the stabilities been so far?

In that case I guess I need to give em a year or two to stabilise before judging their stuff.

Yeah, like when MVP made their first production run Ions with the mis-aligned black outer rubber that partially obscured the bead making their flight less stable than intended. Now they call those Anodes. Good grief, today MVP is the end all on that other site for the tops in quality control. Plz, we're talking about plastic that changes flight to some degree after every tree hit. I guess *D, *DS, SDS, vulcan topped, and ehco star destroyers all fly the same too :roll:

Anyone thrown the D2 or D3 yet? I'm thinking of picking one or two of the prodigy drivers up but can't really figure out which one I should go for. I throw around 350-380 using a Latitude Bolt/Flow. Would love a review on either of those two discs, I'm thinking about one in their 400-plastic, seems to be pretty similiar to latitudes opto-line which I really like.

Neither has landed around these parts but the plastic on First Run D1 and D4 is soft and tacky. Unlike any plastic that Latitude makes. The closest match would be a more flexing tackier Opto Pure. Much like Prodiscus Premium Slaidi but IIRC a hair tackier.

The first run D1 and D4 plastic reminded me of Opto with soft Starburst candy added to it. Unlike any other plastic blend out there...not sure if that is a good thing or not though.
