I think 52 is the optimum cruising speed? Vibram has an explanation on their website.

Which means you either have the slowest disc ever made or you have a rare misprint disc that you can sell on ebay for $1,000,000.69.

All in with Vibram

I am pretty new to the sport but feel like I have made the transition from noob to novice. This transition has been pretty rough on my Cheetah and TeeBird fairway drivers. Both have been pretty shredded from contact with various obstacles. I recently bought a Summit and have been very impressed with it's durability and grip. So today I went all in and rounded out my bag with all Vibram discs (so now I own all but the VP). I prefer the medium firmness. Tonight I only took out the Vibrams and had a great time. The flight profiles are very agreeable to my forearm throwing style. I can already tell that this was a good investment as I am quickly getting more distance and less dings. Thanks Vibram for a great product!!!

Went out this morning for a quick couple of rounds. I had thought the Ascent would be my primary driver but the Trak quickly proved to be rock solid and moved up to primary. My prior best score was a 31. Today I shot a 31 and a 28 (1 over par)and really enjoyed added distance to my drives. So glad I made the investment

I like the Trak too. A lot of guys have said they have overstable (Predator like) versions. I think they have the first run yellow ones. I have an orange marble 168gm that is straight down the fairway goodness!

I'm glad I bought mine too.
