Depends on what weight... I had a 150-class Obex, and that was all that you could do with it. Not a bad disc... I wish I still had it!

From what I've heard the Arch/Notch are going to production the same as they were to testers. The Valley was changed.

It's been a good couple of months since the announcement of the Valley. I think they were the R448 and R449... could be wrong there!

According to Vibram, the Arch is a distance driver... I'm guessing it's a speed 9, though I should check the PDGA website. :D

I think the Notch will be out soon (July). My guess is the Arch will be not far behind (August)... just a guess! It's scary to think this, but VDG has only released four molds, since I joined this...

Definitely speed 8. It has a wider rim than the Trak. It's listed as 1.8 cm by the PDGA.

The production Valley is different from the prototype R448, which was a lot more understable.

Got my Valley today, and I have thrown it a couple of times, and it seems like it's going to be a great disc! 46 mph is the speed, which puts it between the unLace and the Trak/Lace. One thing that I...

I had a glow Lace that I recently lost that I really enjoyed... seemed to beat-in to a nice stability that worked for me. 300'-350'

Probably a lighter weight Lace, like mid-160s... the Lace has a lot of its weight towards the rim of the disc. It'll beat-in to a nice flight pattern.

The Gazelle is the one that's hard to replace, because the Vibram mid-ranges are speed 5, whereas the fairways are speed 7 or 8. Small number Ascents are very, very glide-y... hardly noticeably...

Slower discs will rise more. Faster discs tend to fly lower, so they work well for lower canopies/skip shots.

Faster discs do better in a headwind. The disc sees the headwind and thinks it's going faster. The corollary is true for tailwinds, so your putter will do well in a tailwind. The disc thinks it's...
