That profile pic of the Sole makes it look almost Magnet like. Going to have to give one a try. I am a big fan of Magnets so it could be interesting to fool around with.

So far, we are not contemplating moving the logo out on the Ridge, VP and Summit. If we did, that would change (in all likelihood) the flight characteristics and thus make them (in our minds) a different disc.

I suspect we may (now that you've planted the seed) create a new test mold of the Ridge with the logo at the edge just to see what it happens. But other than me saying this on the DGCR discussion board, no, there are no plans. Really.

Yup. We started out with X-Link as our first material. Based on feedback, we then developed X-Link Firm as a complementary material. Then, someone (perhaps Vegan Ray) asked for the floppiest X-Link material we could make and we created X-Link Soft.

Once X-Link Firm and X-Link Soft were in existence, X-Link began to also be known as X-Link Medium (we put an "M" on the bottom to denote Medium) or Regulars (which sounds better than unleaded (or was leaded the regular gas?).)

As far as I know, this was the first Vibram disc ever produced.



I wonder who kept the top mold ?


I was very graciously extended an opportunity to get this disc.

I'm not a collector, I had three discs on my wall after playing for nearly
30 years, and I was happy.

Now I have four,

and I'm done.

soft is denoted as an 's' and is super floppy
firms have an 'f' and is slick compared to the others
xlink, regular, medium have and 'm' and are the most durable

That's the yang to the ying. A Ridge that flies like a Ridge with more glide would be a good thing IMO. A Ridge with more glide that flies like something other than a Ridge would just be...some other disc.

I guess I should wait and see what the Sole flies like before I get all crazy, eh?
