I understand that the Prodigy has more of a racing following over here, but nobody ever mentions it anymore. Has it died the death?

I bought the racing version when it first came out, but it never took off as expected. there were very few events, and neither did it satisfy as a cruising board. It lacked glide off the plane, and though fast while on it, the weight and heavy pounding over chop were both unbearable. Everyone agreed that it was a 'technical' board to sail, but I just found it damned uncomfortable and a pain.

The impression was that as a hybrid it just fell between two stools. (Neither formula, nor long board.) I was lucky enough to sell it on to a keen racer at not much loss.

Just curious as to what the state of play is now, and how others found it?
