Prodigy Pa4

Postby JHern » Tue Apr 23, 2013 12:31 pm

The one I checked out was in the TPU plastic, same as their drivers. I also checked out some other blends and other putter molds they are experimenting with, they all seem very nice.

This has a very nice stable flight, at 200' power and flat release, it stays flat and a very gentle hyzer finish. Like a slow Buzzz.

Looks like a wide/flat rim, similar to a Magic?

Will all the putters be that tall?
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.

It is pretty distinct, I would place it in the class of faster (i.e., thinner profile) putters but with a blunt edge. It flies a lot like the Clozer. I actually like it a lot.

Rim depth is actually lower than Dart according to specs.
Profile looks kinda interesting.

Yeah, the Dart is a great analogy, it feels somewhat like a Dart in the hand, but with a shallower depth. I think this one, along with the M1, are the best Prodigy discs so far (saw Wysocki bombing M1s out to 400' yesterday).

Sarah Hokom is putting with a stiff KC Pro-like version of the Pa4, she likes it so much that she switched to it during rounds even before they could get her a backup supply.

Nice. I love my Prodigy Mids, but sometimes they just go too far. I'm hoping the Prodigy putters are also great for short drives.

After throwing their mids, I'm very interested in these for driving. It'll take something special to push out the Clutch.

I really like all 3 mids. Didn't like their drivers much.

Buy a clear, FIRST RUN, D4 from Marshall St Dave. It might change your mind on at least one of their drivers.

Very much agreed. The Clutch is a superb disc in many ways. The Pa4 has a lot in common with the Icon Clutch.

Their drivers are all over the place, like a mixture of good-ish and bad-ish Destroyers.

I heard the same from the Prodigy team members, although it is like a window, not a good color for throwing.

They only had clear D4s in my local store and mine flies better than the one mikec had in his video. Are normal D4s like his? If so i might need to get a backup. Too bad my knee is hurting from ramping up cycling too quickly. I don't know how other warp speeders fly for me now that i've lost a lot of weight and done some gym work. The one i have flew nicely in below freezing temps so i don't even know how it works in warmer temps. I've thrown so little lately that is sad. I'm burning fat and increasing endurance for the grueling filming season that we have lined up. Under two weeks till the next major.
