Prodigy Fairway Drivers
If you’re a fan of Prodigy and have been waiting for the arrival of their fairway drivers — your wait is almost over. Four all new control drivers will be available this Friday.
Previously, Prodigy only released one or two discs at a time. With the fairway drivers, they’re dropping them all on us at once. These discs should cover the entire stability spectrum.
I’m an intermediate disc golfer who doesn’t like “big rim” discs. I’m a big fan of Prodigy’s plastic, and love their midrange discs, but the current drivers are just too much for me. Personally, I’m pretty excited to try these new discs out.
Here’s a break down of the new releases, and what Prodigy says about them:
F1 – A significantly overstable medium speed driver with very predictable controllable flights designed for power throwers. Excellent choice for thumber and tomahawk shots.
F2 – Overstable medium speed fairway driver with very predictable flights to execute the most demanding shots.
F3 – Stable fairway driver with a mild finish that is great for all skill levels.
F7 – Yeah, this thing must be really understable. They skipped 4, 5, and 6. Either Prodigy is making room for additional models, or they just want us to know that the F7 is an understable turnover machine. Prodigy says “It is a great choice for recreational and beginner player. Excellent for turn shots and rollers.”
I just recently got the F3 as well as 2 F7s (day 1 water hazard) and I’m really happy to say that the turn/under stable F7 is actually what it says it is. I’m sure other intermediate-recreational players have noticed that the D4 despite being the least stable of the drivers is very challenging to turn over or hold any type of long anhyzer line but the F7 is a really consistent turn over disc, even brand new. The F7 is a faster and longer “Leopard” and is a great addition to the bag.
The F3 is a very straight flying fairway driver with a subtle but consistent fade at the end. The F3 is currently holding its own against a Proton Volt but seems to be easier to get some turn out of.
