    I’ve had this disc for a while now 175g 400 plastic didn’t like it much at first, but now its breaking in nicely ( but still looks new) and it is one of those disc that does the same thing every time,throw after throw it is overstable but is consistently overstable you can count on the flight of this disc every time and in the end knowing what a disc is going to do is a good thing, plastic is tough as nails and feels good..will be staying in the bag..

    over the last few months i have been trying to ( reinvent) my disc golf bag. I had some very old disc in my bag and it has been a challenge trying to find the perfect replacement for each disc. the one i have had the most difficulty replacing is my old innova hammer ( ontario mold) this is my very favorite disc ever and has been in my golf bag since at least 1995.

    the M1 is the 4th stable/overstable mid range i have picked up in the last couple of months attempting to replace this disc and i am very happy to say the M1 is the disc that will replace my ontario hammer. the M1 when thrown with some power has a dead stable flight with a very solid and dependable fade at the end of its flight. when thrown hard with an anhyzer angle the M1 glides out to the right then flexes back strongly left. this disc is very consistent and dependable, the 400 series plastic is absolutely sweet grippy hand candy. im not a young man by any means so i don’t have the greatest arm speed anymore but i can consistently throw this disc in the 250 to 280 range and expect in time i will throw it considerably farther. this is a great disc for experienced players. if you need a mid range driver that you can absolutely rip off the tee without fear of turning it over even into a strong head wind, then the M1 is for you.

    Liking this disc so far. Can handle a bit of power. It also seems to make a great forehand roller. Got some really long perfectly straight rolls out of it.

    What a great disc!! Flies like a broken in drone with a hell of a meathook at the end of its flight. First night out with the disc I threw it on 3 holes off the tee and almost aced 2 of them. It flips up really nice and just glides. Threw it hard into a lot of wind. Slight turn then flat for a long way then hard hard hook as it slowed down.

    This is the Prodigy disc I’ve been waiting for! After all the hype, a disc that comes through!

    First things first, I am a RHBH thrower and I tend to put a lot of vigor into my throws. With that being said I tend to prefer more overstable discs since they won’t turn and burn on me. I have slowly been able to learn how to “flex” or control all of my overstable discs to make them perform in different situations. After trying Prodigy’s big OS driver the D1 and finding it lacking, I was apprehensive to take on the M1, but I’m so glad I did.

    Right off the bat the disc feels great in the hand, firm yet pliable and grippy. I threw a few test runs with it with medium low power and it had a meat hook flight path, out a little then a hard fade to the left. After a few throws I decided to let her rip and boy was it beautiful! This disc flew dead straight for about 250′ then had a very nice healthy fade at the end! Just what I wanted!

    I then proceeded to play an entire 18 with only this disc. Besides the predictable and consistent fade what I have really come to love about the M1 is how it “flexes”. I will throw this disc with a lot of power on a slight anhyzer angle and it will pop out to the right, glide forever, then ALWAYS fade back with the same fade it had on the very first throw. I can throw this flex shot into head wind without a second thought and it performs the same every single time (which is more than I could say for the D1).

    Not only does it flex great and fade predictably, but this thing has some serious glide. I can throw this disc about as far as many of my fairway drivers, much farther than my DX Roc, Ti Buzz. It rivals the distance I get out of my Westglide Warship (you see what I did there? Westglide, not Westside…?). So in short it is great off the tee. I really can not say enough good about this disc. It has shelved all my Roc’s and my Drone.

    On the note of comparisons, I would say that this disc is what a Drone wants to be when it grows up. It is also throws like a more polished and smooth Trident.

    Pro’s: the plastic feels great, the flight path is consistent and true, this thing glides for days, beautiful flex shots, all purpose disc.

    Con’s: not beginner friendly, that’s about it.

    I would recommend this disc to anyone who likes overstable discs and can put a nice flex on them to get different flight paths. I would not recommend this for begginers as it take a lot of power to get it up to speed to fly straight, but once you’ve mastered your Roc or Gator, give it a try.

    This disc is simply amazing! The feel of the plastic really sells this disc. I now reach for this disc before I pull out my ROC 3. Yes, I prefer this disc over the ROC 3. Why? The feel of the disc is better, it flies much smoother, further, accurate. If you on a 175 foot or less hole you might consider using this disc all the way. Excellent disc and a must have!

    I have been playing for 2 years now. I picked this disc up in almost a day glo color at 179 grams and flat as a board. I threw this into a really strong headwind(about 25mph). it still came out stable as ever. If you ever need a disc that has to be stable the whole way through the flight, this is it. I would say this is almost a gator(beadless),drone,suspect kind of mid. I would say this is a longer zone. Would really compare this to a slower BEEFY firebird out of the box. This is the one disc that will be used for a headwind that still ends stable.

    This is a very good disc! I’ve never been one to throw mid-range discs but this disc has completely changed the way I play.

    First of all, the plastic is very grippy and feels very comfortable in your hand. It allows for consistent throws out of the hand with the “easy release technology”. The disc hold a flight path very similar to the flight chart where it holds a straight line very well and always has a dependable fade towards the end when thrown Right Handed Back Hand (RHBH). It is also a very good disc for windy days. I throw it in about 20 to 30 mph winds and it was very consistent with its flight path.

    I highly recommend this disc if you are in need of a consistent overstable mid-range disc!!!

  9. Love, love, LOVE this disc! I was super skeptical when InfiniteDiscs send me this to review. I didn’t think I’d ever need a disc that was more overstable than my trusty Rocs. Going in, I knew I was going to love the feel of the disc. Even though the D1 and D4 didn’t make my bag, I still absolutley adore the plastic blend. Candy-like, fingerprinty, super-grippy blend that nothing else on the market can touch. However, I also knew going in that prodigy is not making discs for entry-level or even intermediate-level (such as myself) players. So I was a bit wary of even being able to throw this darn thing.

    I started off, as always, with some field work. The first couple throws went a bit awry because of the “easy-grip” rim that Prodigy utilizes. However, the M1′s rim is much less “easy-grip” than their D series drivers. After working through the release issues, I started putting the M1 through it’s paces (also of note: one my first three awakward throws, I hit a fence twice and a large boulder once…not a scratch on the disc which is more than I can say for my barely-a-week-old Roc3 which looks like it’s been run over by a truck)

    First and foremost, you cannot power this down. As such, it is similiar to a Gator or a Drone in that it is very much a speciality disc. This is not a utility disc like a Roc, Ibex or Tangent (I use those three because they are my current mid-range lineup). It will take all the arm speed you’ve got, and then some. Also, if you ate your bowl of OATies this morning, the disc will make up for your form flaws (which isn’t always a good thing). Headwind? Not a problem. We were having gusts of up to 30 MPH and I threw the M1 into that maelstorm…it rode straight with not even a degree of turn before still fading hard left (I throw RHBH.) In a tailwind, it’s glide became readily apparent as this thing jsut kept on going…and going…with a glide reminiscent of European Disc Companies. I was stretching this thing out close to the 350 foot mark, which is much farther than any mid I’ve ever had. Part of that reason was the glide, but it was mostly because I could just power grip it and crank it as hard as possible without fear of turning it over. It’s no wonder top pros love this thing!

    I took it to my local course (which is fairly short) and was able to use it off the tee on almost every hole. The longer ones I did have to sacrifice a degree of control to stretch it out, but in application I wouldn’t be using a mid-range disc for the holes anyway. I could never get a truly straight shot out of this disc though. It was straight up to about 250 feet before fading hard (and I do mean HARD). even with anhyzer, this disc fought out of it to finish left. When I said this disc was overstable, I meant it. With a touch of hyzer, it would hold the line to the ground, though it did flatten out to land nice and even. With more hyzer, you get a long, glidey hyzer spike. This disc doesn’t really “dig in” though…it will hit and roll on you if you are not careful with it. The only serious con I have with this disc is that it just doesn’t sit down like most mids.

    I had two chain outs on 250 foot holes, so that seems to be the distance that this disc is best suited for (at least at my skill level.) Any longer than that, and you will have to power it up enough to lose some of that good mid-range control. Much shorter than that, say in the 200 foot range, and you won’t be throwing it hard enough and it will hyzer out on you. The durability of this disc is outstanding. Even after all the abuse I put it through, it looks nearly the same as when it came to my mailbox via Kirk and the gang here at Infinite and it’s flight charecteristics are totally unchanged.

    If you want a wind-fighter or a big hyzer mid, this disc will be for you. But you need arm speed. It makes up for small flaws in form because it is so overstable, but need to be able to step on the gas pedal to get this thing to do what it is supposed to. In no way is this a begginers disc…in fact, I don’t know if it will even make my bag. It is a truly amazing disc, the best Prodigy has put out so far, but until I can get that good control when I open this thing up, it might be a “special occasions only” disc. A reccomended buy for better players, but just know that it might not see all that much play.

    Review Grand Master, L13

    First off, I love the feel of the series 400 Prodigy plastic. Its grippy, comforable, and seems like it will be very durable. The M1 is a tall bulky disc with a deep rim. It gives you something to hold onto, which I like.

    When thrown with power, the M1 has a long straight flight path with a pretty substantial end of flight fade. I’m not sure if its the easy release rim, or the disc shape, but the Prodigy mids seem to fly farther than any other mid range discs I’ve tested. These are great short distance driving discs, and I am very comfortable throwing it both backhand and forehand.

    The one disadvantage I’ve found from Prodigy mid range discs so far is that they tend to lay up vertical and roll away easily. Not the disc you want to use for laying up by the basket on a hillside.

Let us know what you think!
