The Prodigy A4 is a distinctive addition to the world of approach discs, bridging the gap between midranges and putters. The A4 is slightly overstable, designed for players of all skill levels, and performs reliably in moderate wind conditions. It's an exceptional choice for short approach shots and works equally well for backhand and sidearm throwers.
One of the unique features of the A4 is its bead on the rim, similar to the A3, which contributes to its consistent flight. The A4 offers a slightly less stable flight than the A3, but with an extra 40-50 feet in distance.
The A4's rim shape is unconventional, resembling a midrange with a putter's bead. Despite its unusual feel on first contact, it proves surprisingly comfortable and provides an excellent grip. The disc's flight evolves as you get accustomed to it, transitioning from straight to a controllable turn without burning out.
The A4 is versatile, capable of being used as a midrange or an approach disc. Its unique rim shape, combined with Prodigy's soft plastic, delivers a fantastic feel without being overly flexible. The A4's performance is consistent and predictable, holding lines and landing softly. It's an excellent choice for players seeking a reliable, versatile disc that can cover a range of shots.
