The H3 v2 was retooled (VERY successfully) to deliver extra distance by increasing Glide and reducing Fade, resulting in extra long, gliding finishes.
The v2 is also slightly less overstable than the original H3, allowing a broader range of players to generate optimal max-distance flights.

Why 400 Plastic?
400 is Prodigy’s premium, durable plastic that offers good grip even when wet. It is also currently the only plastic option for the H3v2
Recommended Weights: 170-176g
Moderate to heavy weighting balances distance potential with control and wind resistance. As with the plastic, this is also currently the only available weight class.
“The Prodigy Disc H3 V2 is a speed 11 Hybrid Driver that has been built upon the characteristics of the original H3 to create an improved and superior disc. Like the original H3, the H3 V2 is overstable to slightly over stable, depending on the thrower’s power. The H3 V2 sports an upgraded shape from the original H3, with a slightly shallower rim depth, offering an easier grip, and an updated outside rim that allows for a consistent, yet faster flight with more glide. This allows the player to gain more distance, while maintaining dependability and a slightly over stable finish.
The H3 V2 can handle any condition thrown its way, and is an excellent choice for backhand and side arm throwers alike. Core Team member and National Tour Champion, Cale Leiviska said, “The H3 V2 has improved greatly. It’s not quite as over stable [as the original H3] and has significantly more glide. I am excited about this because its distance fits perfectly in between the midranges and X3’s which I have been throwing a lot. [It is] very easy to throw and was consistently ripping straight for a while and finishing left every time for me.” Source
