Pros will like it for midrange shots that go straight and far with a dependable fade at the end. Amateurs will find it more overstable for hyzer approaches.
The Prodigy Disc Archive is an overstable midrange disc developed with Isaac Robinson as part of the Prodigy Collabs Series. Isaac is known for his ability to carve a path with his disc through tangled forests and down daunting fairways. He wanted a beadless midrange that was able to soar effortlessly through the sky with enhanced glide and a touch of overstability to give it unwavering accuracy and steadfast resistance to swirling winds.
Isaac likes to use the Archive for a variety of disc golf shots, including long, pushing hyzers in the 300 to 380-foot range that need to sit down and hit a landing zone.
“Anyone who knows my game knows I rely very heavily on the midrange part of my game. I wanted a disc that I can trust and know what it does every time. That is what the Archive is for me,” says Issac. “We talk a lot about versatility and midranges and the Archive fits that role. It's going to hold the hyzer, you can use it for flex shots when you need to bend it around and still come back, and when it gets beat-up it will be great for long, gliding straight shots.”
The Archive is the first disc from Isaac Robinson in the Prodigy Collabs Series. It is slightly slimmer and a touch faster than other midranges in the Prodigy lineup. Isaac is a big fan of the M1 midrange and breaking in the disc to become very workable. He expects the Archive to take over that slot in his bag eventually, and thinks it compares well to a more overstable M3.
Isaac also had a hand in the artwork and name. “I love books, stories, libraries. That's where the name Archive came from, and the artwork is kind of the start of an epic journey or quest. I couldn't be more pleased with how the stamp design turned out.”
