Based on feedback from the team, we are tweaking the mold. No discs have gone to testers yet. I'd look for them in a month or so.

For those of you that have thrown both the proto Trek and the Ascent, which grip do you like better?

The Trek is a lot more stable than my Ascent. Not sure why people have an issue with the grip of the Ascent...I would also say that I prefer the regular XLink to the Firm. They both have a spot in the bag! I would say the Trek feels like is has more to hold onto, were as the Ascent has a thinner rim.

I prefer the Ascent.

Steve, I really like the trek grip, getting some great distance out of the trek. I am slightly surprised the ascent had such a sharp edge to begin with, but after my finger got used to the ascent is works really well. I have two firm ascents, and I think I would like the regular x-link ascents better on grip, so Like the trek, but haven't thrown it regularly enough to be sure.

DGCR is giving one away here,
http://www.dgcoursereview.com/giveaw...way_201103.php

That means it doable, its only a matter time before the stores will have them.
The sooner the better for me, so I can start getting used to it for our 150 class tourney here.

I wonder if softs are possible ?
