The 2021 Faction Prodigy 3.0, an all-mountain park ski. A review of Faction's surfy all-mountain ski, plus weight and full specs.
The 2021 Faction Prodigy 3.0 was one of my favorite skis of all time. With long rocker, minimal camber and a stiff flex, it did pretty much everything well. If I had a complaint, it was too much tail rocker/not enough camber leading to instability on landings despite the stiff flex. For '21 Faction have significantly reduced the rocker while softening the ski somewhat. The result is a ski that is harder to butter, despite being softer, but more stable on landings, despite the same. They are still a fun ski to play around on too, buttering takes a little more finesse, because you can't simply lean on the rocker with all your weight and get away with it, but these are still a medium flexing ski, so they don't wash out too easily. I enjoy them for charging hard in soft snow but they are a little too soft in choppy conditions and get deflected somewhat. I found them a touch less of a do-it-all ski and more oriented to all-mountain/pow (I skied the '20 ski in the park all summer and I wouldn't want to quite as much with these), but the Prodigy 3.0 remains my go-to ski for all-mountain, and even pow, days. The whole Prodigy line is a ton of fun and these might be the best of the lot. - Twig

With regards to the all-new Faction Prodigy 3.0, our goal was to make a super-durable ski that could be enjoyed by absolutely anyone, in any conditions. The ski is intuitive, perfectly balanced and stable. Its 106 mm waist is highly adept in both packed and pow conditions, making the Prodigy 3.0 a true quiver killer. With Surf Zones and Elliptical Radius, the ski is delightfully user-friendly, ideal for the avid skiers who are looking to progress their skills and enhance their experience in nature’s finest playground.
