  1. When I first got to try the PA-1, I assumed it was going to be Prodigy’s analogue to the ever-popular Gateway Wizard. Such is not the case (I believe the PA-2 will be more akin to a Wizard) and instead I would put this more like a Rhyno in stability…which is odd since the Prodigy team is stacked with former Innova pros, yet none of them threw a putter that overstable. Nevertheless, the team has already seen a lot of success with this disc during the National Tour, so that should show how well it works.

    The feel of this disc is pretty different than any other putter I’ve felt. At first it seemed sort of Jokeri or Zone-ish, but when I held them next to my Jokeri and Zone I could tell it was vastly different. I’d say the PA-1 is so far Prodigy’s most unique disc in terms of design. That said, it still gripped nicely and I felt I had a lot of control over it.

    For drives, this putter is great. Can’t handle the heat and will go very far. Like the PA-4, the PA-1 is pretty glidey for a putter, which I kind of like. The M1 is also glidey and overstable, and it has become a staple in my bag. I was getting the PA-1 out to around 250-280 feet, but to do so I really ahd to put some arm speed into it. Even on a few less-than-clean releases, it fought out and flew straight with a nice fade at the end. Not super forward-penetrating, but it didn’t dump off either.

    As for putting, it was great at close range but difficult to work for those longer putts. That’s mostly because of the fade. It wants to drop early when putting (i.e. not putting a lot of speed behind it) and that makes it less than ideal for putts. Also, the plastic blend is a little slick and does cause some chain-outs.

    For a driving putter, the PA-1 is great. For actual putting, the PA-4 beats it, hands down.

    I picked up the PA-1 as a CTP prize from a tourney, and as far as putting 30ft and in with it goes, I have to say that I love it. I am only 3 months deep in the game, but I play 4 times a week and shoot under par. I say this because I assume Prodigy still only has the one plastic available, I’m just not sure what it’s called. It feels sticky in my hands when my hands are dry or slightly sweaty, identical to my star aviar. Too wet and she gets slick. And like everyone else is saying, its great from 30ft and out. I use if for 100-150ft shots very often with great success. I have one thing to say though, this disc rolls for days off the basket. More than any other putter I’ve used. If my 30 footer chains out, I can guarantee that this disc will roll 7-10 feet away on average. I’ve had then roll farther to a hill then just leave town. I can honestly say that I had been using a Banger GT, Aviar, and a Star Aviar, and I never experienced the rolls like this one does. Could be because I’m somewhat new, but it’s hard to believe, given friends I’m with will also make the same comment.

    This disc is fantastic! I just bought it yesterday, and I’ve played a couple rounds since. The plastic feels so great to putt with. I was kind of skeptical when I first got it in the premium plastic, but surprisingly it feels tacky and gummy which allows you to release it feeling confident and accurate. I was putting with a wizard, but this is a great transition disc. It flies similar to the wizard, but definitely has more glide. It is a great driving disc that I have quickly come to love. I found that I can hit more long putts than I could before. I would definitely rate this disc at a strong 8 closer to a 9 out of 10. I highly recommend not only this disc but prodigy discs in general. I have multiple prodigy discs, and have yet to be disappointed.

    I have been playing Disc Golf for about a year now. My disc is a 167g greenish yellow 400s. I have been a fan of the Prodigy plastic from the get go. It is a great mix of the qualities of innova’s star and champion plastics. It is slightly tacky and has great grip, even when it is wet. Water beads and shakes off of these discs like a freshly waxed car. The rim isn’t quite as deep as my Aviar putter, and feels more similar to my MVP Anode, which I love.

    This disc is a superb flier. It is consistent and dependable, more than any other disc in my bag. It is quickly becoming my go-to approach disc (also the PA4!, which is equally as awesome, but for different reasons). It goes exactly where you want it, according to the power and angle that you use. I feel that when you put more power into it, you get more glide, but with less power the glide is a lot less. It has a predictable amount of fade at the end. When I first started using it, I wasn’t super impressed with it as a putter. Then I started practice putting in my yard and started using it more. I am finding it to be an awesome putter for longer putts. I was hitting about 50% from 25ft or more from the basket, but hit way more with the PA1. The more I use this disc, the more I love it, it definitely found a permanent home in my bag!

    Awesome disc! Recommend it to anyone, beginner, and beyond! Great for short drives, approach shots, and putts! Great first disc for a new player! I think everyone should have one of these in their bag! I really can’t say enough great things about this disc.

    I have been using wizards for years as my primary putter..I recently picked up the Prodigy PA1 I took it out for a couple rounds and was amazed at how well I took to this putter and the consistency it had from 25′-35′ away from the basket the group I normally throw with was amazed at my putting and how consistent my putts have become..they couldn’t believe that I was throwing a new putter.the PA1 has taken the place of my long time friend and partner the wizard when I need a25′ putt or if I’m throwing of the t.I’d like to thank prodigy for improving my putting and lowering my score by releasing “as far as I’m concerned”one of the best or even the best overstable putters on the market..two of my friends have picked one up and I’m sure so will menu more that prefer a consistent reliable over stable putter..thanks prodigy..RAYMOND CALERO

    What to say about the PA1? First off this disc has the same genetics that all Prodigy discs share. The 400s plastic is nice and grippy and feels good in the hand.

    My initial reaction to this disc was that it felt strikingly similar to my Star Innova Big Bead Aviar in that it has a nice deep rim with the bead around the bottom. I like the feel of the bead around the bottom as it rests nicely in the nook of my finger giving me a consistent release point. I will say that I rarely if ever putt with my Big Bead Aviar, rather I use it for drives or up shots.

    Anyway, with Prodigy putting the bead on the bottom of this disc it makes me think they intended it as a driver/approach as much as a putter. I tried it for putting but to be honest I have a hard time getting rid of my Wizards for putting, which is more of a psychosomatic thing than anything else.

    But I will say that I really like this disc off the tee for distances around 200-250ft. It is a very straight flying disc and can be thrown low and fast to glide right under trees or other obstacles without much issue. It also has a nice consistent fade which is very reliable and handy in windy situations.

    I have also noticed that it does prove to be a very useful “get out of $#!*” disc. I can use it to get out of trees or make nice hyzer shots that I don’t want to get too far away from me.

    I would recommend this disc to people who are looking for a new putter or want to play a putter round/drive and approach with their putters. It is a good disc, but unfortunately nothing that I don’t already have in my bag.

    I agree 100% with Ryan. This disc is overstable and flies super straight! The plastic feels awesome just like all Prodigy discs do. On shorter putts I like to use this disc and for longer putts I like the PA-4. Most likely I will be using the PA-4 exclusively, but I won’t sell or trade the PA-1. It is a very nice putter.

    The PA1 is very overstable for myself, I love throwing this discs on hyzer shots. Also feels great in the hands, the 400 plastic i feel is to slick to putt with tho. But like the PA4 its a driving putter for myself. I like throwing this disc for big hyzer holes. I feel like its gonna grow on me as a thrower because i love to throw shots with a little hyzer and watch them hold a line and slowly fade left. I also flicked this putter today, and i like the way it flys. I have never been a flick putter kinda guy, but i feel this could change that. Overall im very happy with this disc and plan on keeping it in my bag to see what i can do with it.

    I actually got to try out Nikko Locastro’s PA1 at DeLa this weekend. Even in light weights, this putter is overstable and fights out of any anhyzer angle. Looks like it would be a great recovery disc for sidearm flicks.

    As far as the plastic goes, it’s the same 400 series plastic that has the gummy feel to it. I wouldn’t use this type of plastic for regular putting, just because it is pretty slick.

    Overall, this is a pretty amazing disc to watch fly, and I wouldn’t mind winning one :)
