Over 65 years old or under 13 years old: I would recommend the Onyx.

Anyone whose game can improve: I would not recommend the Onyx.

Part of becoming a better player is learning how to throw a...

Because I don't currently own the Valley, I am opting for a frisky mid-range Trak, because what I found is that a lot of Valley-shots I just throw an Arch or Notch, even throwing forehand shots.

I would recommend the Vamp in 170s range, because this disc is a speed 7 disc that is fairly understable. This disc is my go-to driver for tailwinds, sort of like the Leopard is for most experienced...

I think the Valley fades less than the Trak. The Trak will always want to fight back after turning to the right. Having said that, I trust the Valley a lot more than the Trak in cross-winds. I like...

I wouldn't recommend the Onyx to a new player for the same reason that I wouldn't recommend an unLace, because those discs tend to create a slice, i.e. using too much hyzer-angle to compensate for...

I have a 150-class Ibex in soft... it's more of a learning disc and not a workhorse mid. If you want a workhorse, stick with the 170 range, because Vibram discs tend to beat-in predictably in that...

Remember to just throw it higher if it is turning too much... the distance potential is unlimited if you keep this in mind.

I've heard that there are some consistency issues, i.e. some don't float... probably why they have been tabled.

I can see the understable mid-range need, because a lot of better players carry a Fuse or Tangent for those type of shots. Mids tend to be more controllable than fairways, which is important on...

The unLace is one of those discs that once you can control it, it is a secret weapon. I recall playing leagues in Arvig park in Perham, MN, where there is 300' tunnel shot down a dirt road. The...

That's good news! Obviously there hasn't been much press from Vibram Disc Golf, but I'm sure that is related to Mr. Dodge staying busy with tournaments and such.

I had mistakenly believed that the Onyx was the understable mid-range, but it is more of a fairway driver. Steven Dodge has envisioned a 16-disc lineup. This helps maximize production of rubber molds...

The Valley is supposed to have the Lace-like flight plate with distributed mass to the rim... I will buy that based on how it feels in the hand. Also noted that the Valley has a dumpy fade sort of...

Amazing glide... I thought the unLace glided well. Doesn't hold a candle to this disc... 36 mph initial velcocity is a new low for Vibram. Wow.

Ibex is fairly nose-angle sensitive, but the nice thing is that it will hold huge anhyzer as well as hyzer lines. It flies dead straight with predictable fade at the end of its flight (in the 170s...
