Fun prototypes

It will always be a bit of a mystery getting these, but in general I think it will prove worth it: You won't know just what your four discs will be like until you try them, in part because they have no flight numbers; but that mystery factor can be fun in and of itself. I assume prototypes are designed with hopes of eventual PDGA approval and, thereupon, more widespread sales; so they should generally fly within the broad, normal parameters of other discs on the market. After trying them out during field work, here's how my set shaped up: The distance driver is like a slightly more stable version of my seasoned Destroyer (I do wish it weren't in a dark green considering all the very green vegetation on courses where I live); the fairway driver is like a more overstable Dynasty; the straight-flying midrange rocks! -- outflying all my other mids; and the ever-so-slightly understable putter handles good force and glides for great distance, though interestingly with almost no fade at all in the end. The exact discs in others' sets may be different, but I think their flights will likewise resemble other good discs, and with some time spent testing them, players will find them useful. They come in higher grade plastics (two of mine are something like S- or I-blend, one is like a Glow C-blend; not certain on the putter, but it feels like a step up from DX), and for only $5/disc these make a pretty good deal! The two big drawbacks to these might be (1) if you really like one or more of the discs, trying to find an exact replacement could be very tricky; and of course (2) as prototypes they are not technically legal for use in PDGA tournaments, if that could be a factor of concern for some players.
