I'm interested in finding out how the glide compares to the Ascent. I'm hoping it will have a lot more, as the Ascent seems to have less glide than most other fairway drivers I have thrown.

I felt like the Ascent did the same thing. A bit less glide than expected. I think the Trek/Trak is a little domier but I haven't compared them side-by-side.

I've got some 152 and 153 ascents here at the house that are just torturing me...can't throw them though, they belong to the women...hopefully a cool one wins one and lets me throw it!

Got some new Trek/Traks today, couple of really sharp looking blue ones! I'll report back later this weekend. The F's seem to have more dome than the M's- FWIW

PS- Happy birthday to Steve Dodge!

Steve, in what weights do you plan to make the Trek / Trak? Any < 160?

Thanks!

Received my tester Treks today. Throw them on top of the Trek I won last month from the contest and that is three to test out. Two actually have the Trek name on the disc while the first one still says Ascent. The two testers are Firms while I believe, because they are in the car and my short term memory is not the greatest, that the Ascent Trek is a regular X-Link.

Hopefully the weather clears soon so I can go out and test them. I have two awesomely beat-in X-Link Ascents to compare them to as well as five Rivers (the closest things I still own to these Vibram discs). I also still have the two Firm Ascents from the last round of testing I can throw into the mix as well.

Throwing twelve discs always makes for a fun day.

150-class as in it weighs 150 grams max (as is the original definition) or 159,9g max (as they're using in the Japan Open nowadays)?
