Probably from Ross Brandt. I think Steve had said something about Firms being sent sometime soon.

Correct. He drags me out to the bars too much and buys me too many drinks. Than gives me a disc every once in a while. He's a horrible person.

He sounds like my kind of person.

We're notorious for drinking too much and having too good of a time. Few weeks ago we did some pre rounds at a bar before random dubs. Ross ended up winning $100 from dubs, then we decided to do some post round rounds, ended up gettting suuuuuuuuper drunk and playing bingo. Ross wins the freaking $450 jackpot at that also!

The Obex being overstable simply means that it is more stable than the Ibex. An obex will hold its line with a predictable small fade at the end. The Ibex just plain stays on whatever line you put it on. In a headwind both the Ibex and Obex will have a tendancy to flip. We are all looking forward to the Mobex.

got a chance to toss my trak (175m) and ascent (170m) a little more this weekend. was getting about equal distance with them and the trak seemed to have a little more fade to it. would the weight difference cause this, or is there a bit of variation between runs of discs? i'm digging both, but didn't know if i should track down a heavier ascent. those of you who throw the lighter traks (mid to upper 160s is what i'm thinking) do those work well for controlled anhyzer shots? i use a leopard for this type of line now.

Not sure why that's happening for you. The trak is my go-to hyzer flip machine all day and is great for controlled anyhyzers. The Ascent is usually a dependable straight flyer with a good fade at the end. Overall, the Ascent is definitely more overstable than the Trak but I have heard people say the Trak has more left-right-left movement which could make it appear to have more fade. Not really sure.
