Prodigy Disc Flight & Plastic Information

The Prodigy Disc naming system is designed to help players figure out what disc they need for each shot quickly and easily. The letter in the model name represents the type of disc. For example, the 'M' in M4 stands for Midrange Disc. The number in the model name represents the stability of the flight path. Our models range from 1 to 7 - '1' being the most overstable and '7' being the most understable. Therefore, the "4" in M4 means that it falls in the middle of our stability rating, making it a slightly understable, depending on the model range in that series.

Learn About Our Plastic Types

200 Plastic

200 Plastic is great for entry-level players looking to get into the game, as well as experienced players who love to fine-tune their discs by working them in just the way they like. The feel of 200 Plastic brings a new dimension to our line-up, as it’s similar to our 300 plastic but less tacky.

Durability: 1.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 1.0 / 5.0
Grip: 4.0 / 5.0

300 Plastic

300 Plastic

300 Plastic has been developed for optimum feel and grip for putters, approach discs, and midrange discs, and would be considered our baseline plastic. The blend of materials is durable enough to take a solid impact and maintain its flight characteristics while still having the ability to be broken in with regular use.

Durability: 2.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 4.0 / 5.0
Grip: 5.0 / 5.0

300 Soft Plastic

Based on popular feedback for a soft, flexible, and grippy plastic, we have developed our 300 Soft Plastic blend. It is a less firm version of our popular 300 Plastic, and maintains the same great qualities, such as being durable enough to withstand solid impact while also being able to break in over time. It is a great option for players who like a flexible feel to go with a grippy base plastic.

Durability: 2.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 3.0 / 5.0
Grip: 5.0 / 5.0

300 Firm Plastic

300 Firm Plastic (formerly 350G Plastic) is a firmer blend of the 300 Plastic for those who like the grippy properties but in a stiffer plastic. Its unique tacky feel and increased stiffness puts it ahead of all base-line resin available on the market today. It was developed in a collaborative effort by World Champions, Major Champions and National Tour Champions looking for discs that will break in perfectly over time. The 300 Firm Plastic retains grip even in wet conditions.

Durability: 2.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 4.0 / 5.0
Grip: 5.0 / 5.0

400 Plastic

400 Plastic is a premium blend of materials that is extremely durable and gives the thrower an impeccable grip, even when it is wet. It is the most popular Prodigy plastic across the entire lineup of discs. While 400 Plastic is often known for its translucent properties, which catch the sunlight well for pronounced colors in the daytime, it can also be more opaque. 400 plastic has a stiff rim and more “pop” when you flex the center of the disc.

Durability: 4.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 3.0 / 5.0
Grip: 3.0 / 5.0

AIR Plastic

AIR Plastic is a premium blend based on our revolutionary 400 Plastic base resin and has been modified to create durable, lightweight discs. The grip, feel, and performance of AIR plastic produce the highest-quality discs in lower weights on the market.

Lightweight discs in AIR plastic are engineered for the same shot performance as their heavier counterparts, with added glide for effortless and easy distance. Some of the best disc golf discs for beginners are lightweight, but more experienced players will also see the benefit and utility of throwing discs in a lower weight.

Durability: 3.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 3.0 / 5.0
Grip: 4.0 / 5.0

500 Plastic

500 Plastic is a premium blend that has a less gummy feel than 400 plastic. This provides you with an extremely confident grip and a stiffer flight plate, balancing just the right amount of flex and firmness. 500 Plastic has a uniquely pearlescent finish which adds another visual element to each disc.

Durability: 4.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 3.0 / 5.0
Grip: 3.0 / 5.0

750 Plastic

750 Plastic is a premium blend that is similar in grip and texture to our 400 plastic but with a firmer feel. This high-tech blend of resins provides outstanding performance and predictability, and is extremely durable. The rigidity of 750 Plastic makes it great for hot weather, as it retains a good firmness even as it heats up and becomes more pliable.

Durability: 5.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 5.0 / 5.0
Grip: 2.0 / 5.0

Special Blend

Special Blend plastic is a premium formulation that offers a firm yet extremely smooth feel in the hand, with high-caliber durability. Special Blend was created as an homage to the highly sought-after "Test" plastic from the early years of Prodigy manufacturing. Special Blend plastic is reserved for special edition discs and produced in limited batches. It feels most similar to 750 Plastic.

Durability: 5.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 4.0 / 5.0
Grip: 3.0 / 5.0

ReBlend

ReBlend is Prodigy’s 100% recycled plastic blend. Made from reground discs that did not originally meet production standards, ReBlend reduces waste without compromising quality. ReBlend Premium plastic is a combination of upcycled 400, 500, 750, Special Blend, and ProFlex plastic, with a feel and flexibility similar to 500 plastic. Because of the combination of plastics and colors used in the eco-conscious process, ReBlend has its own distinctive appearance while also helping disc golf be more sustainable and less impactful on the environment.

Durability: 3.0 / 5.0
Stiffness: 2.0 / 5.0
Grip: 3.0 / 5.0
