Vibram Trak
 
I figure it is time to start an unofficial Vibram Trak thread.
I wait while my Traks are in a package in the hands of the USPS.
Does anyone have production Traks? How do they compare to FR's?
Do you like the Trak, ETC?

How are these flying? thinking about getting one??? Leopard like Iv'e heard from the maple peeps Firm or reg Xlink?

I've got a Trek, never thrown the production Traks. If they are similar, the Traks will be similar to a longer Leo with a little more fade. It was very similar to my Eagle-L but maybe a touch more fade. But the Eagle is a little seasoned

Does the X-Link mean that it's soft?

Posted in the Vibram thread, but will also post here. I bought a 167 Medium yellow Trak expecting great things and ended up with a overstable brick with no glide. It literaly goes left straight out of my hand and goes nowhere. Now I own at least one and usually more of every mold that Vibram has put out. Maybe my disc is a reject, but I am severely dissapointed. Going back to my Lat River.

so I got 2 yellow traks, I also got 1 of the proto-treks.. not sure if it's because the proto is firm or what, but they definitely fly different. I have another regular run coming.. we'll see if the production flies like the proto. I'm not fond of having first runs or proto's in my bag, I hate having to pay top dollar if I lose a disc.

strange, i experienced the same thing with a couple traks me and a buddy were throwing the other day and trying out. one of them had a tiny bit more glide than the other, and the first was exactly as described. kinda disappointed after as much as i liked the ascent

I would not give up on them yet. My proto Firm Ascents started out like overstable bricks but after a week became really flippy. It was like a switch was thrown.

My experience with the yellow First Run puts them close to a Predator stability. I had decent glide but I am also spoiled by the River as my current go to Fairway driver.

I have two medium Ascents that fly predictably and just as described, so if these Traks keep this unexpected stability they can still complement the Ascent nicely, just differently than I originally intended. My tester Trek flew closer to a Leopard but still had a nice amount of LSS. Maybe these new Traks can beat into them.
