Vibram Disc Golf Thread
 
Hi All,

I figure it is time to start an official Vibram Disc Golf thread. Feel free to post any Vibram DG questions and comments on this thread and I will do my best to reply in a timely manner. My first bit of news is that I have started a Vibram DG blog. We've got a couple cool pics over there.

Enjoy. http://vibramdiscgolf.posterous.com/

Cool yin/yang and France discs.

France disc? Turn it 45 degrees and it's Netherlands.

True but then the Vibram logo is vertical.

But hell, itd be upside down for france...doh.

Its a really tight shot of Curt Schilling's bloody sock from Game 2 in the 2008 World Series. His shoes are the dark blue.

So, it's a special steroid-enhanced model, then? Please elaborate!!!

Steve, just wanted to say that I've tried just about every putter out there and the Ridge is the best thing I've ever thrown and has probably taken at least 2 strokes off my average since I picked it up.
So when am I going to see a Vibram mid range disc?
And as a wacky suggestion that probably won't go anywhere...with the Captain America movie coming out next summer, how sweet of a cross-marketing promotion would it be selling Cap discs? Seriously, call Marvel Entertainment, they'll be giving away a Ridge or VP with with every happy meal sold and disc golf can then take over the world:)
Too ambitious??

They could change Cap's 'mild-mannered' name to Steve Dodgers.

Seriously, though, Marvel ain't gonna stand for no yella Vibram lug in the middle of their beloved CA shield.

Good point, good point...the logo would have to go from the middle of the disc...small price to pay:)
Quick...before Innova or Discraft get the idea and turn what could be a cool disc into the latest speed 27, overstable driver that no one is going to be able to throw:)

First, I wanna say my VP is like Linus's blanket.

If you try to take it away from me I will hurt you.


Second, I think making a disc to compete with a Roc or a Buzz is a poor marketing decision.
These discs are the most popular models from thier respective manufacturers, and best selling as well, trying to take market share from proven winners is going to be an uphill battle, at best.

I would think filling in the gaps in the others weak points would be smarter way to sell discs.
Start with making the fastest disc on the planet. I dont think Innova or Discraft has used the maximum allowable wing configuration yet, maybe see what your engineering team can come up with in that area.

The fastest clean throwing driver, and the best putters in the biz could easily cement Vibrams position in the industry.

How about some DG specific Five Fingers shoes with a toe scuff plate ?
